Build Confidence with self-talk
What is Self-Talk?
You may have not paid much attention to it, or spent any time considering it however our self-talk can have a greater impact on how we view ourselves and the world around.
Your inner voice is what self-talk refers to, and it’s basically the part of your brain that speaks the truth. This constant commentary can be hidden from our awareness, and it can have a significant impact on how we feel about ourselves.
Your internal dialogue is self-talk. Your subconscious mind influences it and it can reveal your thoughts, beliefs and questions. It can be positive or negative. It can be encouraging or it can be frustrating. Your personality can influence how you talk about yourself. Your self-talk might be more positive and optimistic if you are an optimist. If you are a pessimist, the opposite is true.
Your self-talk is what your thoughts and feelings are about yourself. You interpret and reflect on the situations that you encounter throughout the day.
