Changing The Self Talk

I know we’re told talking to yourself is somewhat of an insane practice and forbid if you answer with a resolution. Okay honestly have you ever talked to yourself? I’ll answer for me with both hands 🙌 raised. GUILTY. For me it’s a check and balance system. Okay another raise for the honesty when I self talk first I am not always aware it’s verbal. Really it’s a thought or thoughts I’m processing and it just comes out. So what. Now about that self talk.

I once was unable to do two workout routines and kept modifying. What were they pushups and knee tuck jumps. I’d hear push-up and down on my knees I went. Knee push ups were good and easy especially my range of motion was so similar to a high plank. Knee tuck jumps I’d just step it out with high knee raise. Okay, I’m not knocking modification because the benefits are there and for many it’s a safety approach to prevent injury. I knew when I wanted to attempt each and it was a change in my mindset. How well instead of saying I couldn’t do either (that self talk) I changed my words. Haha yep I begin telling my self after each attempt l just hadn’t mastered the move yet. Yes it worked for me, however I still need to get a little lower on those push up and I have mastered knee tuck jumps. Next it’s those tricep push-ups off the knees.

How about you, what talk should you have with yourself? Go ahead I will never label you because I know you’re resolving and evolving. Self talk to your hidden greatness.
