Positive Talk Creates Positive Action – How to Stop Talking Like a Loser

Every day we make many tiny decisions that affect our lives.  One of the decisions we make almost unconsciously is the way we talk to ourselves, and the way our words affect our attitude and our action.  I caught myself doing it yesterday when I considered going to the gym and then thought “I don’t want to do it.” Right away I decided that was it – no more loser talk, time to go work out!

Here’s a list of phrases that I call loser talk – phrases I don’t want to use in my vocabulary, and that you shouldn’t have in yours either

Loser Talk

  • I can’t do it
  • It’s too hard
  • That’s impossible
  • I am too tired
  • I can do it tomorrow
  • I don’t want to do it

Replace the above with:

Winner Talk

  • I can do it
  • This is hard, but not too hard for me
  • I am tired, but I will keep trying for just a little longer
  • I will not put it off until tomorrow, I will do it today
  • I want to do this.  I am so fortunate that in this life I even have the opportunities I am given.  Where other peoples lives are filled with sorrow and suffering, I have infinite possibilities ahead of me.  I will never squander these chances and opportunities. I will always make the most of them.
