9. Change Your Thinking
What we sincerely believe regarding ourselves is true for us.
Orison Swett Marden
Fortunately, there’s exciting news. You CAN change your thoughts, thereby changing your results! Here’s how. For starters, become aware of what you say to yourself all day.
Each of us has an internal voice; in other words, we talk to ourselves!
Too often, however, what we say is negative, critical and self-limiting. Perhaps you find yourself thinking, “I can’t do this” or “I always mess things up.” These thoughts work against you. Instead, repeat to yourself that you can and will accomplish your goal.
As we’ll discuss more fully later, it’s also important to become aware of the words you use on a regular basis. For example, do you put yourself down or talk about the things you could never have or achieve?
Your mind hears every word you speak - and, like a magnet, you’ll ultimately attract the events and circumstances that correspond to your dominant beliefs. So, make sure to use positive words about yourself and your goals.
