All the time we’re caught in a loop of constant internal chatter and judgment that never abates, a little voice telling us that we’re stupid or lazy or plumb not good enough. You wouldn’t even notice the degree to which you believe it or are drained by it, you’ll just be spending your entire day working to overcome the stresses and strains, trying to just live your life and at various points facing the resignation that if you can’t get your ass off this damned wheel maybe you are never going to get to where you want in life – may be that happiness you’re after or that weight you want to lose or that career or relationship you crave will remain just out of reach.
This article is dedicated to those that experience that self-defeating monolog-the endless stream of subterfuge and doubt that taints and limits everyday life. This is a conversational slap from the universe to wake you up to your true potential, to unscrew yourself and get spectacularly into your life. Let’s get this thing started in the right place.
There are two kinds of talk you engage in every day: talking to others and talking to yourself. You might be one of those that insists, “I don’t talk to myself!” But, in fact, most of the conversations you have on any given day are with yourself- all “enjoyed” in the solitude and privacy of your own head. Whether you’re introverted or extroverted, creative or practical, you spend gigantic slabs of your time talking to…YOU!
You do it while exercising, working, eating, reading, writing, walking, texting, crying, arguing, negotiating, planning, praying, meditating, making love, (to yourself or to others) you name it. And yes, you even do it in your sleep. You are actually doing it right now! Don’t worry, it doesn’t mean you’re nuts. Or perhaps it means we’re all a little crazy.
Either way, we all do it, so settle down and welcome to the freak show. Studies show that we have over fifty thousand thoughts per day. Think of all the things you say to yourself that you’d rather not or that you try to overcome or defeat. While we have little or no say in those automatic and reactionary thoughts, we have a huge say in which of those same thoughts we attach significance to. They don’t come pre-loaded!
