Our today topic is importance of self talk.We will talk about importance of self talk.What are the main importance of self talk?What we say to others is far less important than what we say to ourselves. All day, every day, our mind is filled with thoughts that lead the life we live. This internal conversation determines our achievements and frustrations. If you intend to develop in any direction of your life, start by changing your inner conversation, whether it’s your health, your career, your relationships, your movement. You’ll be amazed to see what’s going on.
What is Internal Talk?
We speak 50000 words every day (150 to 300 words per minute). While reading these words, you are also in a dialogue with yourself. On the one hand, you are discussing the effects that you have left in this article, and what you have to do today or your concerns about the future. This inner thinking or inner speech occurs in the conscious region of our mind.
What most people are not aware of is that our inner conversations are the commands given to our subconscious. The task of our subconscious mind is to carry orders issued by the conscious region of our mind. Our subconscious is our personal service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
How does Internal Speech Work?
Imagine a ship crossing the sea. The captain of the ship loudly says his orders, and the crew performs them. Imagine the crew inside these missions, not knowing where the ship went and what to do. Captain consciousness and crew represent the subconscious.
So when the captain gave these orders to the crew:
”Full throttle forward, 15 degrees north, etc.“,
The crew only responds as follows: ”Yes, the captain“ and tries to fulfill the orders in full.
Importance Of Self Talk
The crew doesn’t care if the ship is heading towards an iceberg, or it’s going to collide with another ship, or whether it’s headed for the target. Orders can not be judged in any way and the captain cannot be questioned. The ship metaphor shows the relationship between consciousness and subconscious. They can be explained as two parts of the mind, not two different minds.
Therefore, what we say to ourselves or how we define ourselves takes consciousness as a starting point. If we constantly say:
These are instructions that are directed to the subconscious, even if you don’t know it. When the task of our subconscious mind is to try to follow the instructions without stopping, these problems are all over the water. Our subconscious mind is unable to decide whether the instructions are good or bad for us, and just fulfill what we ask for.
Why is Internal Conversation Important?
Let us take note immediately:) We do not expect what we want in life, but what we expect Ş. It is also important to realize that (our view of ourselves is created by our inner speech, and our opinion about ourselves (self) is decisive for our performance in every aspect of life.
We may have hundreds of views of ourselves. We have a good view of our culinary talent, for example, alı I cook very good food , we may have a bad opinion about our social skills.I find it hard to make friends with people. I can’t say two words to a person I met for the first time. After saying this, our subconscious is trying to make our opinion consistent with ourselves. Well, it could be good, bad.
Change Your Life by Changing Your Thoughts
We did not come to the world with a belief, attitude or idea. We were an empty ship. We weren’t right or left. We neither the fountain, nor the pentagon. We didn’t have beliefs about what the world should be like. Our family, together with the data we received around us, began to form our opinions about ourselves. Our ideas that we believe that we will be on top, or that we cannot succeed on the contrary, have become clear in our minds. When we were 6 years old, most of our early opinions about ourselves were already formed. But these were not how we heard from others, but how we interpreted them in our inner conversation.
Our own internal conversation creates our view of ourselves and we have a direct relationship between our view of ourselves and our performance. If we want to increase our performance and effectiveness in any area of our lives, we need to improve our opinion about ourselves.
By creating the language that will enable us to reach the desired result, we can move our opinion about ourselves. Let’s begin to send instructions to our subconscious by repeating our renewed inner speech. Our subconscious will immediately start working to fulfill new tasks.
Our subconscious never judges. He does not argue whether he is right or wrong, he does not try to calculate whether it is good for us. The conscious region of the mind does what it has been told.If you want to change your life, take the first step with your inner conversation, I’m sure the results will surprise you.
