Do you often find yourself thinking that you are lazy, lack willpower, or that you just aren’t good enough for whatever it is that you want? If the person making these comments to you is, well, you, it is time to stop. The more you say negative comments to yourself the more you will accept those criticisms as truth.
The next time you are tempted to say harsh things to yourself, I encourage you to ask yourself if you’d say those things to someone you care about. If you wouldn’t, then I encourage you to replace those harsh words with something you’d expect to hear from someone who cares about you.
Very good points! Richard Bandler, author of “Get the Life You Want” talks a lot about never entertaining negative beliefs and thoughts about oneself. It’s a great book.
Thanks Ellen, I’ll check it out!
