De-clutter your mind. Empty out the trash. Release all the thoughts that no longer serve you, especially the self-degrading ones that keep you at a lower vibration. The mind is a powerful instrument. You have the power to talk your self into illness and you have the power to talk yourself out of illness. You have the power to boost yourself up before a speaking engagement with uplifting words of confidence and you have the power to deflate yourself before a speaking engagement with negative self-chatter. It is very important that you arm yourself with the tools of uplifting words and thoughts and against negative and deflating thoughts. Your mind is a playground. Don’t let the bully run the playground. Overcoming negative self-talk isn’t automatic, but with daily practice, it is absolutely attainable. Your negative self-talk didn’t appear overnight. It took years of repetition. It took many experiences. It took daily dedication. To rid the mind of negative self-talk, it will take the same rigor and regimen as the creation of it. Daily affirmations are the best place to start. You will begin to rewire your brain with each daily affirmation. Keep your eye on the prize. Practice daily, especially when you catch yourself thinking negatively. This is the greatest opportunity to retrain your brain. Catch yourself in the negative thought pattern and immediately reach for the positive and switch it around. It will take practice, practice, practice, but eventually it will come naturally, just like the negative thought process once did. Amen.
