What Is Self Talk?
It is asking yourself questions that direct your conscious and subconscious mind toward a positive goal or solution. The key in life is coming up with the right question. Once you have the right question, the answer usually comes quickly.
Once you start using self talk you become like an inventor. You are constantly wondering how you can do something better. It could be any process in life, from getting better gas mileage, receiving a raise at your job, finding the love of your life, experiencing radiant health or motivating others to improve the world.
Countless people don’t ask themselves many questions at all. If they do, those questions are often negative.
- Why do I always fail?
- Why do I have a horrible backhand? (tennis players, as an example)
- Why can’t I keep a job?
- Why does my mother in law hate me?
Ask and you shall instantly receive. Any question you ask will instantly start attracting answers to you. So if you ask, “Why am I addicted to cooked food?” You will get a list of answers.
But do these answers get you closer to your goal? Actually, they’ll probably make you feel bad about yourself. It will tell you all the reasons why you can’t succeed.
Some better questions would be:
- How can I enjoy eating a healthy raw food diet?
- What are the health, beauty, mental and athletic benefits of eating a raw food diet?
One of the key ideas with positive self talk is to focus your questions on a positive goal. In other words, ask for what you want, not for what you don’t want. You have to expect that you can get what you are asking for.
All inventions and innovations start with a question. It has been this way since the beginning of humanity. Positive self talk shows you how to be an active inventor and innovator in your own life. If you ask a better question, you get a better answer.
Always ask yourself how you can improve something.
- How can I do this faster?
- How can I delegate this task?
- What is the “silver lining” behind this problem?
- How can I spend more time doing what I am best at?
- What brings me the most joy?
Remember to ask questions that direct you toward things that you want to achieve. There are always finer levels of self talk.
