6 Reasons Why How We Talk To Ourselves Is So Important


Your self-talk is something that you may not think about very often, but it can have a significant impact on who you are and how you live your life. Many people don’t realize the power that their thoughts and beliefs have over their lives until they really start paying attention to what goes on in their heads.

Even if this sounds like something you would never do or think about, read on to learn more about why it’s so important that we change our self-talk—and how we can do it!

Our Self-Talk Shapes Our Self-Image

Our self-talk can have a huge impact on our confidence and self-esteem. For example, if you tell yourself that you’re not good at something enough times, it’s likely that you’ll start to believe it–and this can negatively affect how confident and comfortable you feel with yourself.

On the other hand, if we constantly praise ourselves for an achievement (even if it doesn’t seem like much), we’re more likely to feel good about ourselves overall. So when it comes down to it: The way we talk to ourselves matters!

Self-Talk Affects Our Emotions

Self-talk is one of the most powerful tools that you have at your disposal to help you achieve success. When we start talking to ourselves in an encouraging way, it can completely change our mood and mindset for the better.

When we think positive things about ourselves and others, it makes us feel happy, confident and optimistic. On the other hand, if we keep telling ourselves that life isn’t fair or we aren’t good enough then we will end up feeling sad and depressed very quickly.

Self-Talk Impacts Our Behavior

Self-talk can impact our behavior in a positive way, as well as in a negative one. When we have positive self-talk, we tend to make better choices and take action on them more often than if we didn’t have this inner dialogue.

For example: If your inner dialogue tells you that you are worthy and good enough without having to prove anything or get approval from others, then this will translate into how much effort you put into achieving success in life because it won’t feel like such an uphill battle anymore!

On the other hand (and unfortunately), if your self-talk is filled with negative statements about yourself then those thoughts will become reality because they’ve been programmed into your mind over time; meaning they become hardwired into who YOU ARE!

Self-Talk Can Help Us Manage Stress and Anxiety

Many of us have heard the phrase “self-talk,” but not everyone understands its true meaning. Self-talk is the conversation you have with yourself in your head, and it can be both positive and negative. When we talk to ourselves positively, we call this “positive self-talk.” Positive self-encouragement is another term for it; some people even refer to this as “self-praise” or “affirmation.”

The power of positive self-talk has been shown in many studies on stress management, anxiety reduction, self-esteem enhancement, weight loss programs…and more! It may sound like an exaggeration to say that changing your internal dialogue will change your life–but if you’ve ever had trouble sleeping at night due to stress or anxiety (or any other reason), then I encourage you to give this method a try!

Self-Talk Can Help Us Overcome Obstacles

Self-talk plays a role in building resilience and perseverance. When we have a positive self-image, we are more likely to have the confidence to persevere through difficult situations.

When faced with obstacles, it’s important not to give up or feel defeated before you even get started! If you think of yourself as capable of overcoming anything that comes your way (even if you don’t know how), then this will help motivate you when things start getting tough.

Self-Talk Can Improve Our Relationships

Your self-talk can also help you build stronger relationships. When we’re aware of our emotions, body language and nonverbal communication, we are better able to communicate with others in a way that shows them we care.

When using positive self-talk, it’s important to remember that there is no right or wrong way of doing it–you just have to find what works best for YOU! For example: if someone asks me how I am doing today and I respond by saying “I’m great!” they might wonder why I seem so cheerful when everything around us is falling apart (e.g., traffic jams).

However, if I tell them honestly “I’m having an awful day” but then follow up with something positive like “but at least my dog has been acting really cute lately” then they will understand where my good mood comes from and why things aren’t as bad as they seem (even though there are still some major issues going on).
