How does your self-talk inspire you?

Clearly we cannot eliminate our own internal dialogue, but we can work to address it more effectively. Some use self-critical thought to move them into action, some use it to procrastinate, others use it to motivate; if you use it to find those things on which you can improve that is great.

Self-criticism can be particularly difficult as we are both the giver and receiver of critical information through our own self-evaluation and self-talk; we are saying these things about ourselves. Research has shown that we are often not objective in our examination of the issues and we often focus on the negative to the exclusion of all else.

Today, listen to your self-talk…. is it critical or inspiring?
