3 Steps to Boosting Your Confidence by Changing Your Self-Talk
Imagine this scenario:
Work doesn’t feel satisfying. You don’t feel like you’ve been getting enough responsibility at work. You’d like to prove you’re capable of more, perhaps get a promotion. But you don’t say anything. You hope your boss will somehow magically understand and be the first to bring it up.
Or try this:
You’ve been interested in a certain someone for a long time. So far, you’ve been content to watch from afar. You find yourself wistfully thinking about how nice it would be if they noticed you if they said hello. You wait, silently, not far away and wonder if you’ll ever catch their eye.
If either of these scenarios sounds familiar, it might be you’re needing a substantial boost in your self-confidence. Confidence is what takes us from the world of wishful thinking over into action. Confidence starts a conversation. Confidence gives you the impetus to stand up and say what’s on your mind.
The problem with self-confidence is it tends to stem from your self-talk. What you tell yourself dictates how you’re feeling about yourself. If you’re constantly putting yourself down, you’re going to struggle with feeling confident enough to approach a difficult situation. After all, if you don’t like yourself, how can you expect the world to?
You can change these scenarios. You start with changing your self-talk in three easy steps.
When you really pay attention to what you’re saying you might be surprised. Most of us tune out the words we say most often because we’ve heard them so many times before. You might be amazed at just how negative some of those thoughts are.
Verify What’s True, and What Isn’t
The question then becomes, just which of these statements are true, and which ones aren’t. What evidence do you have of this? Don’t be afraid to become an investigator. For example, are you always late? Check and find out. Our minds are very good at blowing things out of proportion.
Rephrase What’s Being Said
If you don’t like the answers you’re getting in the previous step, it’s time to rephrase what you’re saying. Replace outright lies with positive truths. Turn statements around into questions that seek out solutions.
By being mindful of your self-talk, you’ll find your confidence growing exponentially. You’ll feel better about yourself, and more courageous in being able to express your feelings, with the expectation that someone else will want to listen to what you’re saying. After all, when you like you, how can anyone else resist?
The Real World
How we say things makes a big difference in the response we get.
We must take control of and responsibility for our own emotions and behavior. We all have hot buttons and soft spots that make us more likely to react to certain things. In addition, there are people and issues that can cause a negative or over-the-top reaction in us.
On the other side of the coin, some people are jerks that are intentionally say and do things they know will push our buttons.

The Things You Say
We don’t always pay attention to the conversations around us. When we get bored or think we’ve heard it all before we tend to tune out, catching only one word in a dozen. We fake out the person we’re with, nodding and catching the gist. Sometimes we even get away with it.
While this might be okay when the conversation isn’t important, there comes a time when you know you ought to be listening. If you’re talking to someone who matters to you, whose opinion counts, you probably want to listen up…especially when the one doing the talking is you.
We don’t always listen to our own self-talk. We tend to tune ourselves out, figuring it’s all the “same old same old.” After a while, we might not be hearing it anymore. This becomes a real problem when the self-talk turns negative.
Negative self-talk is what holds us back. It keeps us from accomplishing the things we could and can affect our health if it goes on long enough. On the other hand, positive self-talk is what gets us where we want to go. It boosts us when we need a jolt to set us into motion. It inspires and enables us to get to where we want to go.
In this package, you’re going to find a discussion of both positive and negative self-talk. You’re going to discover just why it is we get so negative and how to flip the script, to change self-talk over to the positive. Once you’re done, you’re never going to ignore what you’ve been trying to tell yourself ever again, nor will you allow yourself to fall into the trap of negative self-talk when you’ve got the powerful positivity of an inner dialogue designed to inspire in your arsenal.
