What is self talk and how can I benefit from it?
Internal Self Talk
Self Talk is internal vocalisation of your ideas, feelings and intentions you have about yourself and is in response to the things that you do or that happen in your life.
Self Talk is your own internal, often involuntary, commentary on life in response to something that has happened to you or that has had an impact on you.
The Impact of Self Talk
What you say to yourself can have a big impact on your life. There are two types of Self Talk; Positive and Negative.
Self talk is like an internal coach who eggs you on; either encouraging you to try harder and succeed. It can boost your confidence and sense of self worth; or it can act like an internal bully which keeps criticising and undermining your attempts to achieve things.
