Positive Self-Talk, Powerful Interactions
April 21, 2017
We only see what we look at. To look is an act of choice.

"One of the ways to recognize, promote and sustain optimism, hope and joy is to intentionally fill our thoughts with positive self-talk," asserts Dr. Gregory L. Jantz in his article, "The Power of Positive Self-Talk" (Psychology Today, May 16, 2016)

"Try the following exercise," he urges. “Write down some of the negative messages inside your mind…Be specific whenever possible, and include anyone you remember who contributed to that message. Now, take a moment to intentionally counteract those negative messages with positive truths in your life...

"When you make a mistake – and you will because we all do – you can choose to overwrite that message with a positive one, such as 'I choose to accept and grow from my mistake’ or ‘As I learn from my mistakes, I am becoming a better person.'

"The practice of positive self-talk is often the process that allows you to discover the obscured optimism, hope, and joy in any given situation."
