Positive Self-Talk Reminders

Our thoughts, attitude, and mindset greatly influence your experience of life. When you allow your mind to wander into negative territory, you set yourself up for self-talk that lacks positivity.

Your subconscious believes positive or negative mental messages and accepts them as truth. Flipping the script that you’ve come to rely on for confirmation and validation of your worth can have a huge impact on your life. Yes, self-talk can improve you in so many ways.

What Is Positive Self-Talk?

If you’ve grown up in an environment where put-downs and criticism were common practice, you’ve probably developed an unhealthy habit of berating yourself daily. When your self-esteem and self-worth are low, it’s easy to believe what other people tell you are. Over time these thoughts grow into a negative mindset. It would help if you had positive affirmations for self-belief.

If you’re someone who is a perfectionist, you may have developed a habit of setting unrealistic expectations of yourself. Then, when you don’t meet them, you use self-talk that you wouldn’t be comfortable letting other people hear.

How Positive Self-Talk Can Improve Your Health & Wellbeing

Negative: “There’s just no way that I’m good enough for (fill in the blank)”

With a positive self-talk spin, it becomes a self-talk lesson:

Positive: “I’m good enough for (fill in the blank), and I will give it my all to make it work.”

Negative self-talk is a bad habit that needs breaking. Learning how to have more self-belief takes time. Using positive self-talk reminders, affirmations, or mantras, is an effective way to adjust your thoughts and create the foundation for a shift in your self-love attitude. When you use positive self-talk, you transform your life experience and well-being to set up your intention for each day and build self-belief.

Self-Talk Traps 

Before you start exercising positive self-talk, it’s important to be aware of your feelings and potential self-talk traps. Improving self-belief isn’t always easy. Certain scenarios may trigger you and increase your self-doubt. For example, speaking in public, in the workplace, may push your insecurity buttons. Likewise, connecting to new people in your private life may have the same negative effect.

When it comes to self-talk and stress, checking your feelings, and identifying when and where you feel most vulnerable, can help you evaluate, anticipate, prepare and appropriately adjust your thoughts and self-talk.

Self-Belief Affirmations

To maintain a positive belief in yourself, you must frequently remind yourself of your confidence and emotional strength. Repetition is the key to flipping the script that continually runs in your head. Repetition stimulates your subconscious and motivates you to achieve your goals.

For the next 7 days, say you are positive self-talk affirmation at least 7 times throughout the day. If possible, say it out loud. You can also repeat the positive self-talk in your head like a mantra whenever you need a pick-me-up.

This positive self-talk can make you appreciate the little things in life and inspire and motivate you to be the best possible version.

Confidence Vs. Self-Belief

While the two are closely related, confidence is something you generally have embedded within yourself. Self-belief can waver from time to time when things get tough. You ask yourself many questions during these difficult times, but your confidence helps you break through and retain belief in yourself. Now, isn’t that nice to know? How self-talk affects you depends on what and who you listen to. If you surround yourself with positive people and remember your basic confidence, you can stay positive instead of falling into negativity’s trap.
