We had the pleasure of having one our top supervisors Tiare Hren impact us on the power of “Self Talk”. She started in our Sacramento Office back 2018 and she was a high rolling rep last week. For being a high rolling rep she got the chance to be the speaker on Motivational Monday.
What is self-talk?
Self-talk is something you do naturally throughout your waking hours. People are becoming more aware that positive self-talk is a powerful tool for increasing your self-confidence and curbing negative emotions. People who can master positive self-talk are thought to be more confident, motivated, and productive.
How does self-talk work?
Although positive self-talk comes naturally to some, most people need to learn how to cultivate positive thoughts and dispel the negative ones. With practice, it can become more natural to think good thoughts rather than bad ones.
Positive self-talk is supportive and affirming. Consider the following two inner statements:
“I’m going to speak up in the meeting today because I have something important to contribute.” This sounds like a positive plan and attitude.
“I don’t think I want to speak up in the meeting today because I’ll look foolish if I say the wrong thing.” Contrast this negative comment with the statement above.
