I invite you to kick disempowering words and phrases to the curb and replace them with positive ones. Do this for the next 30 days and you will be glad that you did. You will have created new neuro-pathways in your mind to think and speak using a more positive framework.
Positive thinking really does change your brain! It is not some mumbo jumbo that new-age fanatics have conjured up.
The field of science called neuroplasticity has proven that our thoughts can change the structure and function of our brains. The idea was first introduced by William James in 1890, but it was soundly rejected by scientists who uniformly believed the brain is rigidly mapped out, with certain parts of the brain controlling certain functions. If that part is dead or damaged, the function is altered or lost. Well, it appears they were wrong.
Neuroplasticity now enjoys wide acceptance as scientists are proving the brain is endlessly adaptable and dynamic.
Here Are Some Ideas on How to Move From a Negative Dialogue Into a More Empowered One.
- Replace the phrase, I can’t do that with I can do that.
- Stop hoping things will work out, state, “I’m confident this will work out”.
- Wishing doesn’t get you anywhere, instead place your intention on what you desire, I’m placing my intention on ……….
- Never, ever, use the phrase, This may sound stupid. Too many women discredit themselves using this phrase. Get in the habit of saying, “In my opinion”.
Sometimes, when you are making this type of change it is great to enlist a friend for support. I encourage you to find a buddy that can “call you out” when you mutter words or phrases that takes your power away. Together, brainstorm a more empowering way to express yourself. This added support can really help you shift your way of thinking and how you express yourself.
Let me know how you are doing with this 30-day challenge. I can’t wait to hear how you kicked disempowering words to the curb.
