Negative self-talk does not help us achieve our goals, yet I hear it all the time in my work with my coaching clients and from my peers who are fellow rising leaders. In this Power20 episode, I’m sharing why negative self-talk is so destructive and I equip you with an exercise to flip the script (literally, I share a story about a friend flipping flash cards to combat negative self-talk. Try it!).
I’m choosing to talk about this on the podcast because I am passionate about wellness. I believe in the wellness of our future leaders and I see it suffering all around me. Negative self-talk plays a big role in this.
I also believe that my purpose is to help people achieve their goals. Negative self-talk has no space on the journey to goal achievement. I want to help you get out of your own way, love yourself, and ultimately achieve the things that are beyond your wildest dreams.
Let’s do this!
PLEASE NOTE: There is adult language in this episode. I’ve found that people use a lot of swear words when they talk to themselves. It’s only 1-2 words, but if you are listening with little ones, you may want to use headphones.
