“You will become what you think about most; your success or failure in anything, large or small, will depend on your programming—what you accept from others, and what you say when you talk to yourself.” ― Shad Helmstetter, What To Say When You Talk To Your Self
“Repetition is a convincing argument.” ― Shad Helmstetter, What To Say When You Talk To Your Self
Those are two quotes from one of my favorite books. I always recommend anyone who wants success in anything read it. Whether you want success in building your Young Living Business or success in health and fitness goals, the words we are saying over and over have a powerful impact on your success in any endeavor.
The more you say the same things over and over to yourself the more you internalize it.
For instance, if you have fears about building a successful Young Living Business and you are repeating negative words in your head or speaking them out loud, they become reality.
Here are a few common statements people struggle with as they are building their business:
Can you hear yourself saying this or something similar?
Another area to watch out for is your vocabulary about money. Do you find yourself using words like “hard-earned money” or “I can’t afford that”? Usually you don’t even notice you are using self-defeating language. We all struggle with it but if you make an effort to stop and switch to some better words, it is possible to get in the habit of better self talk.
Michael Losier teaches: Each time you hear yourself talk about what you DON’T want, and each time you hear yourself complain or observe what you DON’T want, or catch yourself in a negative self-talk pattern, ask yourself this question:
So, what do I want?
Change the words.
What I DON’T want
What I DO want
It’s hard to find people to sign up in my business
To easily attract people
I keep getting team members who don’t stay in the business
Team members who eagerly grow their businesses
I have so much doubt about being successful
My confidence grows every day
I keep getting rejected when I try to tell others about my business
I’m attracting people who want to know more about my business and join me
I’m not making the money I want. I’m broke and desperate for more money
My income increases steadily. I have a surplus and abundance of money
I like to take these statements and make them into affirmations and gratitude statements that I repeat when I need to shift out of a negative attitude.
I am grateful that I am easily attracting people.
I am grateful that I am attracting customers and motivated team members who eagerly grow their businesses.
I am grateful that my income increases steadily. I have a surplus and abundance of money.
Notice that these statements also include the words “I am”. Not only is gratitude one of the most powerful positive emotions, “I am” puts it in the NOW! Add essential oils to your affirmations and power them up even more.
Some oils to consider with your positive self talk:
There are other oils you could use. Just go with what feels right in the moment.
Remember, when you catch yourself with negative self talk, just stop, mentally say, “Delete” and switch to what you DO want.
