I was prompted to write this hearing the tragic news concerning the apparent suicide of actor and comedian Robin Williams.
On TV and at the movies, you and I saw a happy, successful actor and comedian, but what was his self talk?
It would appear from the various media reports that he had been battling some personal demons. We never know what is going on inside someone's head.
You see, each and every one of us has an internal voice. We all have self talk.
Our self talk can be the best thing since the proverbial sliced bread, it can aid us in times of self doubt, your internal voice is the one that says "go on do it, what harm can come of it!".
However there is the opposite, there is the voice of doom, the one that sabotages your confidence, saps you of your 'mojo', keeps you from achieving greatness, greatness in your terms no one else's.
You see, when you lack confidence and the internal voice that gives you self talk fails to big you up, your own expectations drop and therefore when you don't achieve the things you want to, you confirm to yourself the self talk. Its a self fulfilling prophecy, and so is the alternative.
The alternative confident voice brings on self fulfilling thoughts, which leads to self fulfilling behaviours which can exceed your own expectations.
