Using NLP to Change Negative Self Talk into Positive Self Talk

positive self talk“The more man meditates upon good thoughts; the better will be his world and the world at large.”Confucius

As Confucius pointed out what you think about consistently affects your whole world. Your thoughts are directly affected by your self talk, what you say to yourself on a regular basis.

We all talk to ourselves – all the time. The questions you need to ask yourself is if your self talk positive or negative?  While positive self talk can make your world a better place, negative self talk can make your life a prison of your own making.

Learn How to Create Positive Self Talk!

Negative self talk is things you say to yourself that are negative, demanding and overly critical. If you hear yourself saying things like “How could you do such a stupid thing?” or “Why can’t you ever get anything right?” you are engaging in negative self talk.

Silencing Negative Self Talk

Your inner voice causes your mind to conjure up images. These images can either help or hinder your life’s progress. By eliminating or a least reducing your negative self talk you can begin to use your subconscious mind to create positive images that will propel you toward success.

Use these steps to counter negative self talk:

1. Listen to the Voice

Listen to your negative self talk and identity where it’s coming from. You might also want to try to identify whose voice it is. Is it yours, your parent’s, your spouse’s or your boss’?

2. Validate the Information

Determine if the negative self talk is valid. Sometimes we say things to ourselves that need to be said, just not in a very loving way. If this is the case thank your inner critic for pointing out the issues and then ask it if it will, in the future, speak to you in a loving manner, a way that you can better understand and accept.

Listen to that inner voice and wait for an answer. If needed, negotiate with it. Since, in this case your negative self talk is valid and is trying to help you, guide it toward better communications with you so your self talk can be useful in the future.

Changing Negative Self talk into Positive Self Talk

If your negative self talk is not valid, then there are a few Neuro Linguistic Programming Techniques (NLP) you can use to change your negative self talk into positive self talk.

1. Turn down the volume of your negative self talk until it completely disappears. Now substitute a positive affirmation for your negative self talk.

For example, a positive affirmation you could use if you find yourself saying “How could you do such a stupid thing?” might be “I grow as a result of learning from my mistakes”.

2. Change the speed of your negative self talk to wither a very fast or slow pace. You can make it so fast or slow you just can’t understand it or so it becomes so weird sounding you just can’t believe it. Again, substitute a positive affirmation for your negative self talk.

3. Change the sound of your negative self talk voice to the voice of Homer Simpson, Fred Flintstone or your favorite carton character. Using your own voice substitute a positive affirmation for your negative self talk.

4. Put the voice in a sealed box or locked drawer so the voice can’t escape. Put insulation around it so you can’t hear it. Now substitute a positive affirmation for your negative self talk.
