Your Self Talk: What Are You Telling Yourself?

Have you ever noticed how influenced you can be by what others say?  And guess who says the most to you? Yourself, your self-talk. And this self-talk — constant inner chatter — usually goes by unnoticed, like noise in the background.

Some of the messages we send to ourselves we wouldn’t say about our enemies. (“You’re a stupid idiot:”; “You’re a dumb klutz”; “You can’t do anything right.”)

And what you tell yourself, whether you’re listening or not, programs and directs your life. Your self-talk sometimes becomes a self-fulfilling (or unfulfilling) prophecy.

But take heart. We don’t have to be on automatic, which can lead to poor decision making and a general dullness and routineness of life.

It’s good to know you can monitor yourself, listen to yourself and hear the signals in that ongoing self-talk that fills the background of your life.

So how do you do that –  bring attention, light and awareness to what you are telling yourself? Here are four important strategies to apply for a greater life. 

Are You Committed to Your Dreams?

Your better life, your best life… is it a wish, a vague hope, or something more? 

Your life can be an extraordinary one, where your dreams and goals are coming true, often in unexpected ways if… you commit to it. 

What is Commitment? 

“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity,” Seneca, the Roman philosopher said. To get lucky, you want to keep going in the desired direction. 

To stay the course (with all its twists and turns), you need a strong commitment. That means near 10 out of 10 in commitment, though it may fluctuate at times. 

An Example 

The Words You Use

Words are so much a part of our lives, we rarely examine them. Here are a couple important things to keep in mind.

Our ongoing stream of thoughts contains many negative messages, some reasonable alerts, while many others are false warnings and alarms. We also re-play our favorite negative messages about ourselves and the world.

What’s more, living presents many societal problems that affect us.  The media focuses on conflict as well, influencing – often unconsciously –how we describe things.

As a result, it’s easy to use negatively laden words and phrases without realizing the toll they take – on our daily life and the quality of our life

By contrast, using words with awareness can make a positive difference. Let’s explore how words can depress us or uplift us.

The Energy in the Words You Use

We describe below a powerful little exercise from our recent book The Ultimate Paradigm Shift. 

Your Brightest Possible Future

Even in these times that try men’s souls, we seek an optimal future. The current challenges can inspire us to rise up and envision a better – a much better —world.

What kind of future do you want to live in? To answer this all-important question, here’s some help. Fill in this sentence:

“I want to live in a more ____________ world.”

Now imagine your personal journey through this awesome future.

The more you can craft an optimal future, the better for you and for the world. Your optimal experiences can reverberate in wonderful, unfathomable ways.

If you are a holistic-minded, heart-centered person, you have certain priorities. You want to make the world a more connected, loving place.

What you contribute, how you live your life, can make the difference. So as you elevate your life, the world around you grows and flourishes too. As you rise to greater vibratory heights, your perspective expands.

The Bright Future Creates the Present 

As you seek more freedom, meaning and depth in your future, you integrate this awareness into your present. Hence the future shapes your present.

For your exciting, future life, where do you want more freedom?

The Magic of Inner Peace

World peace, as you know, starts with you. Having personal peace uplifts yourself and others ─ producing loving thoughts, kind actions and creative aliveness.

But how do you embody inner peace? Let’s look at four ways to promote your own personal peace.

1. Intend to be more peaceful

Your intentions matter. That’s where peace starts.

I (Phillip) had to set aside my cynical side of envisioning cut-out happy faces to embrace a deeper sense of peace and happiness.

With more superficial notions aside, you can intend each day to be more peaceful, happy and loving. Your conscious intent will make you an active participant in creating this kind of life.

If people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be, as Abraham Lincoln said, then we can decide to align with the happier more peaceful side of life.

Transform Your Life with Gratitude


What’s often the missing ingredient for love, healing and manifestation? Gratitude.

Gratitude is being thankful and appreciative, and more…  Expressing it in your life is a game-changer. Gratitude can bring you up when you’re down. It can create a wonderful view alive, keeping you strong and flexible.

Learning how to express gratitude is a key to a wonderful life. Let it transform you. Here’s how…

Gratitude: The Magic Elixir

Gratitude can get you through the morass of life, in all its uncertainty and confusion. It can help life make more sense.

When you use gratitude, it become a magic elixir for an empowering, transcendent life. It redirects your attention to goodness, even amidst the bad. It gives you a fresh outlook. You connect with others and yourself more. As research shows, you become healthier, happier and can even live longer.

You realize you are fortunate in so many ways. As you focus on your good fortune, it grows into abundance and prosperity, too.

Providing a backdrop for your life, gratitude can help you better handle loss and overwhelm. It provides a way to becoming a more open, humble person.

To make gratitude grow with all its wonderful benefits, you must plant the seeds. How? By practicing it. Include gratitude in your journal and meditation.

Also, gratitude and wonder arise from appreciating nature; the sky, the earth, the water all around us. It just takes an intention to do so.

Einstein Quote on Intuition

Would you like to supercharge your intuition? Do you want to benefit from the insights your intuition can provide? If so, you’re not alone.

Fear of Selling and Spiritual Growth


Do you enjoy selling?  Well some people do. Many others, particularly holistically minded people, find selling doesn’t come naturally to them. They may have many negative associations about selling. They may even have a strong fear of selling (selling out?).

Yet what’s most important here,  looking at the big picture, it becomes apparent that selling is part of the spiritual journey to wholeness. Thus it’s good to face any fears or contradictions around this area of our lives.

What is Selling?

Part of the confusion with selling is that it has two definitions. One has to do with persuading people, the other has to do with transferring goods or services in exchange for money. Each can present challenges, especially when money is involved.

Mastering Life’s Mystery and Energies: The 4 Keys to Mastering Your Life

How do you gain mastery? The definition of mastery is “comprehensive knowledge or skill in a subject or accomplishment.” What’s more, how do you master life’s mystery and energies?

In this article, we will first explore gaining mastery of a particular subject – then expand to discussing how to gain mastery of your life as a whole.

Examples of masters are Shin Lim the magician who recently won America’s Got Talent, Roger Federer or Serena Williams in tennis, or Izhak Perlman for his violin ability. To master something, you must put together certain elements, then you will not only begin to act like a master, but live with mastery in that realm.

First, a suggestion: Don’t sell yourself short on becoming masterful. Before we get specific in our examination of mastery, let’s say one need not rise to the very best artist or athlete on earth to gain mastery.

There’s no requirement to be part of an exclusive group of superhumans to become masterful. Mastery is open to virtually anyone who is willing to follow a certain path that leads to advanced accomplishment in a certain area.

One consideration to understanding mastery is that sometimes there are external measurable standards to guide you, like speed or wins or skill level. Then there are internals that are harder to measure, which come from the unique expression and life experience of each person.

Let’s look at the four key components to help one gain mastery.
