I remember the day I received a vivid lesson on the subtle power of what we hear.  A friend of mine and I were enjoying a great time of fellowship over lunch.  We were talking about "'Self-Talk"' and the benefits we receive for listening to it on a daily basis.  We sat there for over an hour totally caught up in our conversation with each other.  Background music was softly being played.

As we walked out to our cars later, we both started signing the chorus to the song we recently heard.  We hadn't even really listened to the song, yet it had penetrated our spirits and was now lingering in our cousciousness.  Our mouths automatically started speaking what had been sown in our hearts through the gateway of our ears.  

That's why you need to be so selective about what type of conversation you permit yourself to hear.  Stop hanging around with people that constantly talk about their doubt and fears.  You can't do it without being adversely affected.   You may say, "oh , I just let those thoughts go in one ear and out the other."  But that's impossible!  Just as we ended up singing that song, you'll end up signing you friend's song of doubt and fear when times get tough.  

You simply must guard your ears.  The words you habitually listen to will become what you believe!!!

This "'Self-Talk"' Video was inspired by Dr. Shad Helmstetter, who without dieting lost 38 lbs in 10 and a half weeks!   In his book "What to say When You Talk To Yourself" he compares our mind to a computer and that it's programmed in a very similar way.

Dr. Helmstetter listen to this; and if you would like to try '"Self-Talk"' free for a month go to:
You can put "'Self-Talk on your phone and listen to it any where you go.    
 From the moment we were born, all messages we received through our five senses are recorded in our brain. That part of the brain does not know the difference between good or bad or right or wrong. Eventually we started repeating these messages to ourselves until we believed that they are true and develop us into who we are today. This "Law of Repetition" as the Author describes it is what's called "'Self-Talk"'. The good news is just like a computer we can re- program our brain with Self-Talk. The Author also talks about the problem he had with his weight. He had tried numerous diets which failed. He then discovered that self-talk was helping Olympic Athletes achieve gold medals, so he decided to tackle the weight problem with "'Self- talk"'. It worked! Without dieting he lost 38 lb in 10 and a half weeks listening to "'self-talk"' audio while shaving each morning in front of a mirror. The astounding thing was his wife also unintentionally lost 25 lbs while overhearing the "'self- talk"' audio on the other side of the bathroom while she was putting on her makeup. The following "'Self-Talk"' audio was developed using Shad Helmstetter 's guidelines and is aimed at helping you lose weight without dieting but by reprogramming your mind using "'Self-Talk"'. The idea is that you listen to the audio on a daily basis for an extended time period until you see results. At first don't worry if this '"Self-Talk"' Audio conflicts with your beliefs; this is normal. These messages will become ingrained in your mind and become a part of you.

A photograph is shaped more by the "'Self-Talk'" of the person taking the picture than by what's in front of it. 

 

To prove this Canon Australia invited six photographers to a portrait session with a twist. ‘Decoy’ is one of six experiments from The Lab, designed to shift creative thinking behind the lens.

Hearing you child say, “I hate myself”, “I am so stupid”, or “No body likes me” can be heart breaking and alarming.

What your children says out loud gives you a window into what they are thinking – their ‘”self-talk”’.  You know they are engaging in negative ‘”self-talk”’ when you hear things like:  “I’m never going to get this!” or “I hate school!”  Sometimes it’s not what they way out load, but you may notice self-defeating, subtle facial expressions or mumbles under their breath.  There are so many ways to change the negative ‘”self-talk”’ in your house and help your children replace their negative thinking with positive ‘”self-talk”’. 

Here are some in home strategies to decrease negative ‘”self-talk”’:

* Listen to free ‘”self-talk”’ downloads.  As you take them to school and as they go to sleep let them hear the ‘”self-talk”’ that will make them into the person God created them to be.  Truth Wins Free "'Self-Talk"' Download

* Love yourself!  Treat yourself like a best friend.  How you talk about yourself becomes a model that you children will follow.

* Praise. Seek out opportunities to praise your son or daughter for achievements or good behavior.  Find ways to praise your children when talking to others – especially if your child is in earshot, but not a part of your conversation. 

* Get Sassy! Encourage your child to be THE BOSS of their negative voice and TALK BACK to it!  When your negative voice tells you “You’re not going to do well on this test” don’t let it take your confidence away!! Tell that voice, “I’m a good learner.  I’m going to try my best.  If I try my best, I’ll do okay.”

But most of all here is a list of things children love to hear their parents say:

I think you’re fantastic!

You did a great Job!

You make me smile.
