73 | Getting Rid Of Negative Self-Talk, Past Baggage And Other People’s Expectations To Live The Life YOU Want To Lead

In this week’s episode, we are focusing on negative self-talk.  The voices in our head that hold us back.  These can be the voices of others, voices of our past, our own voice telling us real and perceived “truths” that keep us from doing what we want to do.  I’m going to be very vulnerable with you because this subject is near and dear to my heart and you have no idea how much I live in my head.  It’s about the should’ve would’ve could’ve, which are not necessarily wrong but you need to find what is important to you and what brings you joy and work through those voices in your head.  I will talk you through a self-talk exercise that will help you let go of your past, shed expectations and quiet that negative self-talk in your head that’s not serving you.

In this episode, you will specifically learn how to…

  • Replace negative language into positive language – Find what makes you unique and integrate it into how you speak about yourself.  For example, “I am not creative” becomes “I’m creative in this way”
  • Figure out if your obstacle is real or perceived – Think about something that you have overcome in your past and how you can apply that to an obstacle today.
  • Let go over the baggage of your past – Committing to yourself to find how to change something that’s negative in your life and how you can perceive it differently.
