Spring Clean Your Inner Dialog

It’s a lot easier to make your own luck when your inner dialog is your number one fan.

So if you Spring Clean only one thing this year, let it be this. Everything else will start to fall into place as a result. Let me show you how with proven tactics I’ve used on myself and neuroscience is proving to be true!

Neuroscience is finding that how we talk to ourselves resides in the same parts of our brains as many other bodily functions, like hormones. So our brain takes the words we use and tells the body to act accordingly.

The words we use also impact what we see and what we don’t see around us.

How to Know Where Your Inner Dialog is Holding You Back

Ask yourself these coaching prompts:

  • Where in your life are you not seeing the “luck” that you desire?
  • How do you talk to yourself about this?
  • What should you start saying to yourself instead?

Now comes the hardest part of all. Yes, inner dialog work was one of the toughest things I’ve ever done. It’s a long game that no one celebrates you for, except for maybe a coach. 

How to Create Change

Coaching Tip:

  • Catch yourself in the negative thought.
  • Pause.
  • Alter that thought slightly to something more positive.
  • Do it every time until you’ve re-wired that part of your brain and that negative thought is a distant fading memory. 

Examples of Re-Worded Negative Inner Dialog

The classic… I don’t know so I’ll never get there…

  • Old thought: I don’t know what I’m doing, I’ll never get to the success I seek. 
  • New thought: I’m learning everyday, as long as I keep going one step at a time, I’ll get there!

Money Mindset

  • Old thought: I’m horrible with money, I’ll never figure out how to be financially stable. 
  • New thought: Money is a tool that I’m learning to use, and I’m asking for help so I can get even better. I’m on the right track. 

And the ever present in our society, how we talk to our bodies

  • Old thought: My body sucks and I just feel so unattractive. 
  • New thought: My body performs so many miracles just to exist. I’m committed to nurturing it and playing up my strengths. 

Where are you ready to create your own luck and lasting change?
