The right self-talk is the underlying principle that makes many other personal development strategies work.
Here's how it works:
Your subconscious mind is always listening to and believing everything you repeatedly say and think about yourself. It will believe anything you tell it if you do it often enough and with enough emotion.
If you want proof of this principle in action, look no further than your current unconscious behaviors or beliefs. Many of them were created in this same way—from repeatedly hearing a message, either from ourselves or those around us (often our immediate family).
You can use positive self-talk to override your past negative programming by erasing or replacing it with conscious, positive new directions.
Whenever I feel I need to change or strengthen certain habits or behaviors of mine, I write them down in the present tense, exactly as I want to manifest them. Then, I read each one 5-10 times before bed or whenever I remember throughout the day.
This isn't the only way to change habits or behaviors but it is one of many tools.
