SELF AWARENESS

SELF-AWARENESS

The words you use and the thoughts in your head actually show up in your interactions with others. Take a few minutes to review you internal dialogue with yourself and perhaps what you even say out load. Are the phrases you use positive or negative? Are they empowering or deflating. You become what you think so it is time to ensure you are looking at the bright side.

"PUSH A BOLDER UP A HILL"

This sounds so difficult and hard; almost like it is impossible. Rarely is something impossible. Maybe you can switch this to WE HAVE A BIG OPPORTUNITIES TO MAKE THIS GREAT.

"IT’S A RAT RACE"

Can’t you envision all the people running around in all directions but never getting anywhere. Perhaps instead this could become LET’S CREATE AN INSPIRING PATH TO OUR GOAL.

"I FEEL OVERWHELMED"

This phrase feels heavy. Just saying it makes you want to lay down and go to sleep. Instead, you could think I NEED AN ENERGY BREAK TO REGAIN MY STRENGTH.

"I AM SO FRUSTRATED"

Instead of letting yourself stay in frustration mode, try to think of what the frustration is telling you. Are you really listening to the other person? Are you just tired and can’t handle the situation right now? Whatever it is, this can become I NEED TO BREATHE JUST FOR A FEW MINUTES.

"HE’S A DRILL SARGEANT"

Do you know a leader who just seems to push not matter what? Think about him this way HE CAN GET US TO THE OTHER SIDE NO MATTER WHAT.

"THERE IS PENDING DOOM"

Sounds scary and imminent. Turn this vibe around to HOW CAN WE TURN THIS OPPORTUNITY INTO A WIN?

"THERE ARE SO MANY ROADBLOCKS"

It’s normal to have bumps along the way. WHAT LESSON DO I NEED TO LEARN RIGHT NOW?

"TWO STEPS FORWARD, ONE STEP BACK"

Most people use this to mean they are not getting ahead. But actually, you are, just slowly. How about seeing it as WE ARE MAKING PROGRESS SLOW BUT STEADY.

"THIS IS INSANE"

 

This definitely portrays a situation out of control. However, a more positive point of view could be THERE ARE THINGS I DON’T UNDERSTAND WITH THIS SITUATION.

You get the point. Watch the language you use and how it affects your outlook and your actions.
