People who are happy generally have high self-esteem and a good opinion about themselves. Positive thinking is the key to success in life. When you improve your ability to think positively, you can achieve anything!
The way we speak to ourselves is important for our mental health, If you are constantly being drowned out by the noise of others’ opinions and advice that doesn’t reflect your own truth or beliefs, it can be difficult to hear what’s going on inside of us. Your mind is a powerful tool and one that should be used for the good it can do, not what other people can say to have you doubt yourself.
The voices of others are loud. They shout out their opinions at us, trying to silence the noise that our own mind makes. It’s not that everyone else’s voice is wrong or bad, it’s just that sometimes we are the only ones who are able to decide for ourselves what feels right and what doesn’t. Think about the best football managers or boxing coaches, you need them at half time or in the corner between rounds to gee up and motivate the players / the fighter. They are external voices because they know what it takes to win. You cannot tell someone how to play football or box, not everybody’s game is the same, but you can certainly give them tips and hints that will improve their chances of success.
At some point we have all been told by someone that we aren’t good enough. We may have even led ourselves on to believe such things for a period of time. When this happens, our own minds sabotage us. This means that we start believing in those negative thoughts and let them take over our lives until nothing else seems real except those doubts and fears instilled by others’ words or the negativity we put on ourselves with our own internal dialogue.
Try to stop listening to too many other people’s opinions and focus on you, listen to that voice in your head that tells you “you can do this” “you are amazing” because there is power in words, these thoughts can lift you through work or improve your performance at sport. When you feel like quitting or giving up, think of that voice and those words and they will help you.
You may never know how strong your thoughts are until they run wild, taking over your mind with negative feedback. Whenever we’re doing something challenging, we’ve all had the experience of our minds telling us “no” but it is important to remember that those voices aren’t real. They are just a false belief instilled by others’ opinions or our own self-doubt so try to stay focused on the positive side of life because there is nothing more powerful than positive self talk.
Acknowledge the power of positive thinking.
