I was asked in a recent interview about the chapter in my book that covers ‘Winning Language.’ He asked me: What does this mean to me?
My response: It’s about how we speak to ourselves, do we speak to ourselves in a kind way?
I always use the example especially when speaking at keynote events, I say ‘Be your best friend.’
People often look at me oddly, so let me explain.
I often advise people to talk to themselves as if they were talking to their best friend. This may sound strange at first, but it helps get your mental and physical state off to a good start.
What benefits does this positive language give you? You feel good. It really helps when you’re struggling and it motivates you to keep going. It makes you grateful. It reminds you to be kind to yourself and encouraging; sometimes we can be really hard on ourselves.
Giving yourself those rewards, celebrating and being kind in the way you talk to yourself – that’s also what I mean by the winning language. Talk to yourself like you would to your best friend.
This is an important point to get your mindset started on the right track! I talk further about this in my ‘7 Steps to getting your dream business up and running’ webinar.
Our self-talk is very important, because it’s with us every day.
