“Speak kindly to AND about yourself. No more “I’m so stupid” or “This is a dumb question” or “I am so behind!” Words create LIFE. ~Sandi Krakowski~
It’s well-known knowledge that negative self-talk comes from negative talking to a child hammering in that little one’s head like “you’re so stupid!” “dummy!” “you’ll never amount to anything!”
Have you ever heard those words as a child? Do you find yourself believing those words? It doesn’t have to be a parent it can be any person that’s supposed to be a role model to you. I know that as a child I grew up with soooooo many negative words.
It took me quite a long time to finally realize that I am not stupid or dumb or anything else negative that I was told as a child. And I know I am not the only one, in my work as GED education instructor, I have seen plenty high school dropouts with low self-esteem as a direct result of belittling their capabilities in their childhood.
It’s verbal abuse and it’s amazing how many adults abuse children verbally.
When you realize all the negative self-talk stems from your childhood you can start to give yourself positive self-talk or like Sandi Krakowski says you can “Speak Kindly To AND About Yourself! You can, it works and it turns things around for you.
I wanted to share a couple of photos of my grandson as who is now 4 years old. I Love these photos of him. They’re stored in a folder named “Vote For Me!” because that’s how he looks. The confidence that exudes from his face is to me just spectacular and fantastic!!!
That’s because we refuse to tell him ugly things about himself. Everything we tell him is so that he has that positive self-talk naturally. Like not having to think about it like walking. We don’t tell ourselves to put one foot in front of the other each step of the way, it just happens. So it is with positive self-talk, it’s just something he’ll do and not have to think about doing.
This positive self-talk is such an important character to have when building a network marketing business. You have to stay positive no matter how much experience you might lack. Stay positive and the experience comes. Work hand in hand with Faith and Patience as well to see positive results in your network marketing business.
Your network marketing business may be like a bamboo tree that is underground for 3+ years, you don’t see any growth at all but underneath the groundwork is being laid so that when the bamboo tree does emerge it emerges with a solid foundation and it emerges…quickly!!!
Join me on my network marketing team. I am supportive and know what it’s like to build slow, to have Faith and Patience, and to honor myself with positive self-talk.
