Improve your Self Confidence with Positive Self Talk

Positive self talk is paramount when developing an internal dialogue that supports growth and empowerment. The words you choose to use, both thought and spoken, directly affect your ability to navigate any situation with strong, bold self confidence, including many of life’s challenges that could bring an otherwise unprepared individual to their knees.

You may think you know what your value to the world is and assume your comfort level in society accordingly. For example: Even though you believe that your hard work and personal achievements are worthy of a pampering massage or pedicure; you have decided that you are better suited to receiving your rewards at the less expensive spa instead of allowing yourself to be at ease and relax completely in the ultra chic location. This is self worth based on an ideal provided to you rather than exuded from within you.

When your confidence resides within, you can withstand negative attack because your values are rooted with self-assurance from inside. You possess the belief that you are worthy regardless of whether others share the same opinions or not.
