It might sound absurd or even ludicrous for someone to be talking to himself. However, knowing how to talk yourself would go a long way in putting you in the right mindset and keep you ready to tackle whatever you have set out to do. It is not news to us that how ever we feel and talk to ourselves would mostly likely affect how we do things. It is then important to learn how to talk to yourself in a positive way so as to always been in the right mind set when doing something. Below are tips which are guaranteed to help improve your intrapersonal communication:
1. Don’t be ashamed to talk to yourself.
I am not ashamed to admit I talk to myself. I ask myself serious and/or simple questions every day that centers on my attitude, love for myself, love for God, love for my husband, love for other people, and so much more. Most times, I don’t answer certain questions right away because I want to wait to see if the answer will come from God. But because I asked myself a question and God knows what I asked, He’ll answer. That’s why I have no shame because most answers come from God. I may give an answer to some of the simple questions but for more of those serious questions, it’s a few days or weeks because I want to make sure God answers and not myself. If I answer, I may not end up with the best solution. If I give room for God to answer, I am more likely to follow the right solution.
2. Have daily, consistent reflection time.
Since the start of 2020, I’ve been doing tons of self-reflection. I’ve been telling people how I spend so much time in the mirror nowadays. Not sounding conceited but being transparent and sharing the fact that I need help. I need God, I need my husband, I need my family, I need trustworthy friends, etc. I’m not perfect. I love to learn and I have a lot of knowledge. However, I still need God to supply all my needs according to His riches in glory. (Phil. 4:19) I still need protection, love, support, healthy food, decent clothes, etc. I can’t survive without God and what He supplies
3. Break limiting beliefs through thanksgiving.
Each person has an idea of who they are. Most are quick to recognize their weaknesses but so many are slow to recognize their strengths. It’s easy to recognize a strength with a well-known public figure because that’s all the media will show. But nowadays, the truth is coming forth and recognizing that even the they have flaws. We have to break these limiting beliefs by being so thankful for what we do have! Don’t take what you have for granted. Don’t doubt yourself by comparing yourself to others. It’s not worth comparing or competing. Be grateful for how God made you.
You have always encouraged others, why not love yourself enough to also encourage yourself. You should not at all be embarrassed to do this. Always try to improve your intrapersonal communication skill and you would inevitably reap the benefits of conversing in a positive way with yourself.
