If you find your inner conversation running along negative lines, you have the power to change the subject, to think along different lines. —Martha Smock—
Most of us carry on a continual inner dialogue. At times we’re sizing up our co-workers or perhaps strangers entering a room. At other times we’re being
critical of our appearance, or a piece of work we’ve just completed, or of our capabilities to handle a new challenge that’s in our path. If were to log the minutes of
self-talk and categorize them, many of us might discover that few moments of the inner dialogue are supportive or filled with praise. In fact,
we often verbally abuse ourselves and others—a behavior we can ill afford.
Determination to change our inner thoughts is our first step, if we want to find greater peace and happiness in this life. We are under no one’s
power but our own, and we have chosen negative thinking for whatever payoff it offered. Time will prove to us that the payoffs from positive thinking are far greater. We tend to become the person our thoughts prepare us to be.
I will celebrate my personal power and use it to my advantage. Today!
