Positive Self Talk
Everyone has doubts, but many people's outlooks default to negativity. If you are always picking apart the things you've done, you will constantly be hearing a negative voice in your head.
If, on the other hand, you say positive statements to yourself, you'll be boosting your level of confidence and feel better about your overall progress.
A positive self affirmation is a statement that you say to yourself that affirms something positive about how you're doing. The more often you can say positive self-statements to yourself, the faster you are going to make progress - it's not just about achieving goals, but telling yourself that you can achieve them. It's just like programming a computer, except in this case, you're programming your mind.
Try this exercise for one week - every time you say something negative about yourself or your progress, state two positive things you have done, and then repeat those to yourself. You'll find that by developing a habit of doing this, you'll feel much better about yourself and you may have an easier time sticking with your goals as well.
Don't ever overlook the power of your mind - what you say to yourself on a daily basis will influence your results. Stay positive!
