Be Careful How You Speak to yourself!

Your Words Have Power! Use them wisely to change the world!

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

You will speak the most to yourself! I know you are shocked by that statement. You are saying no I don’t! but yes you do! It may not be out loud but in your head you are speaking volumes to yourself! Every thought and word you are speaking life and death to yourself! It sets the tone for your day, your week, your business, your family and your life. So you need to pay more attention to those thoughts and prayers! You need to be careful with it!

Ask yourself do I build myself up? Am I my own cheerleader? Do I believe in me? In my dreams? In my abilities? Do I say I can do it? Or do I tear myself down? Am I always doubting myself? Am I always reliving my mistakes? Do I continuously tell myself I cannot do it? Take time to think about this. It is really important! If you are not uplifting yourself, it’s time to start! It’s time to stop all of that negative speak! It’s time to start building yourself up!

You need to realize your words have power! They can elevate your life or they can take you to the depths of misery. It’s totally your choice! What you say to yourself is more important than what others say about you! You must learn to love you and your flaws and mistakes. You must learn to speak to yourself with grace and love and not with disdain. The words you speak to yourself today will determine your tomorrow!

So start today and change your tomorrow! Lift yourself up, be your own champion, be your own cheerleader and speak love to you!

Here are some tips to get you started!

1. Each morning before you do anything! Look in the mirror and say I love you and I’m going to start acting like it!

2. List three things that you do well! Celebrate them!

3. Everyday list one thing you are grateful for!

4. Take time to Celebrate small victories!

5. Begin each day with praise and uplifting! (listen to great music or spend time in the word)

6. Forgive yourself and begin again!

Each day is a new chance to make changes and live a happy, positive, and loving life. So take it and make it yours!
