Who here has been personally victimized by negative self talk? Anyone ever find themselves saying things you would NEVER say to a loved one, but have zero issue saying to yourself? Do phrases like “I don’t know if I am good enough” or “I’m not sure I am strong enough” every creep into your head? Maybe you are tough on yourself about the way you look. Or what size jeans you wear. Maybe you are SUPER guilty of comparing yourself to others. You might say things like “I have big dreams but I’m not sure they will ever really happen.” You’re human…it happens to the best of us. But I am here to tell you that you need to break that habit. That’s what it is. You are in a habit of speaking to yourself poorly. And honestly sis, that ain’t the move.
Listen friend, it is our responsibility to cheer for ourselves. You need to be your BIGGEST and LOUDEST cheerleader! The world has enough people telling us we aren’t good enough, or we aren’t strong enough, or we don’t have it in us. You don’t need to add yourself to that list. You have a lot to give the world. You are smart and confident and capable of anything you put your mind to. How do you expect others to cheer for you, if you can’t cheer for yourself? You need to feel secure in what you are doing. You need to approach life with a FIERCE kind of confidence. And I won’t sit here and lie to you friend, that kind of confidence doesn’t come easy. There’s lots of heart work involved. You’ve got to love yourself, love where you’re at, and fall in love with where you are going. But the words you use when you speak to yourself are going to help put you in an encouraging space!
So CHEER for yourself! Celebrate yourself! CLAP FOR YOURSELF!! You deserve happiness and joy and success but YOU NEED TO BELIEVE IT WILL HAPPEN. You need to manifest those good things and positive thoughts. You know better than to talk down on yourself! So you need to try and DO BETTER. You have so much to give the world, but it’s going to be hard to accomplish your dreams if you don’t believe in yourself.
So speak kindly to yourself. Think positive thoughts. Manifest good things. Show up as the most authentic version of your and LOVE who that is. Cheer that person on. I’m talking, hoot and holler and ring your cow bell and blow your air horn kind of cheering for yourself. Believe in yourself and your dreams! You are worth so much. And you are someone worth rooting for.
I hope you know that I am rooting for you, too!
