Taking a Closer Look at Self Talk

mindfulness performance success

Negative self-talk, characterized by self-criticism and self-doubt, can erode feelings of worthiness and self-esteem. Positive self-talk, which involves self-affirmation and self-compassion, can bolster one's sense of worthiness, fostering a healthier self-concept. The findings from new research emphasize the pivotal role that self-talk plays in shaping feelings of worthiness, underscoring the importance of cultivating a more positive and self-affirming inner dialogue for individuals seeking to enhance their sense of self-worth. Challenging negative self-talk increases our resilience and begins to wear down the negativity and soften the self-talk, eventually changing and healing it.

Positive self-talk engages and changes our brains. Greater creativity, openness, presence, every area of our lives begin to improve.
