Now most of you have in your mind your spouse or best friend. Some of you have considered a sibling or favorite cousin---but the person that I am referring to is you.
You spend most of your time with yourself. You communicate with yourself more than you communicate to anyone else. That communication takes place in your thoughts, personal journals, dreams, and lets be real, some of us literally talk to ourselves---out loud.
It has been reported that 87% of self-communication is negative.
I want you to learn to engage in positive self-communication. Starting today, I want you to communicate, out loud, 5 positive statements to yourself. You can write them down and read them aloud. You can speak them out loud in the car on the way to work. You can look at yourself in the mirror and say them every morning. However, you feel comfortable doing is okay by me, so long as you begin today.
You can only reach your fullest potential if you identify your strengths and remind yourself of them daily.
