#MondayMotivation — What to say when you talk to yourself?

‘Nothing motivates you more than the voice that comes from within.’ — Anonymous

Whenever I need motivation, the first person look upto for is ‘ME’! And, I preach what I practice. Human mind is so powerful that if you are able to control the subconscious mind you can achieve the improbable, overcome the unimaginable and do the unthinkable!

But there is a slight catch here — it takes a little conscious effort to control your thoughts. To control your thoughts and turn them into something positive, you ought to learn the language that your mind can understand. Or, as I normally call it — you ought to learn what to say when you talk to yourself.

I am going to share some secrets that I follow, and they have been working well for me -

1. The CHARGE is in your hands

‘Don’t let anyone ever make you feel you don’t deserve what you want.’

I have never in my life heard a more powerful sentence than this. There can be many instances in life when you will be down and out. Others will say that it is not your cup of tea, you cannot do it. This is when the negative thoughts can pile up, frustrate you, leading to a situation of utter annoyance.

But if you keep reminding your brain that the charge is in your hands, and not in the words coming from other people’s mouth, then you can easily bounce back.

2. You can be as HAPPY as you want to be

Happiness resides within you. You can do things to impress others, but they will seldom give you happiness. But the problem with people today is that they are too busy doing things to impress other people. And that’s why they end up regretting those decisions.

This is where the power of subconscious mind can be the best friend for you! Remember, you can be as happy as you want to be. Don’t give the control of your life’s happiness in the hands of other people. If you choose to be happy, there’s nothing in this world that can stop you from being in that state!

3. Be the BEST version of you

Average is boring. If you are satisfied being average, then don’t forget there are millions of others just like you who are satisfied with being average throughout their life. But there are only a handful of people who choose to be the BEST! And the entire world admires those best people!

So, don’t be satisfied with average. If you have set a benchmark, and are able to achieve it easily then the next time go ahead and raise the odds. Push yourself. Go beyond your limits. Get to know your breaking point and then try to raise it higher every time you make it!

It can apply to even the smallest of tasks in your life — from hitting more than the usual number of crunches in the gym to finishing more than the numbers of tasks at work daily that you usually do.

When it comes to speaking to yourself, make some ground rules. Stay away from negative thoughts and negative people. Trust me when you will train your mind to actually focus on the brighter side of everything, rather than feeling down and out after a minor failure, you will be able to transform your life for good.
