Talk Yourself Up
CHANGE the way you talk to yourself. Many people believe the happiness in your life comes down to how you communicate with yourself – your internal dialogue.
Think of phrases you enjoy hearing and repeat them silently to yourself throughout the day. No one else need know you are doing this, except you will have a huge, knowing grin, and feel fantastic.
Remember you have a conscious mind and a subconscious mind. You need to massage your subconscious mind’s ego. Employ a can do attitude and your subconscious mind will instinctively know how to make it work. Try it.

WYSIWYG = “What you SAY is what you get.”
A big part of coaching is getting clients to ‘turn up the volume on the good stuff in their heads’ – I think this is one of the essential differences between happy and unhappy people. When I hear negative self-talk I often say to clients: “If you were that rude to your friends, how many friends would you still have?” Wonderful when they replace that self-slander with the ‘huge, knowing grin’ of which you write 🙂
Self-talk works for me.
Am always telling myself off and it seems to work!
I am more of a don’t do that person than can do but it gets me there.
