Your Inner Dialogue...

Posted By: Randy GageMarch 23, 2018

In yesterday’s post I said everything in your life depends on how you represent it to yourself — the “inner dialogue” you use with yourself.

So how does that play out?

Someone near and dear to me, hired one of those webinar gurus on Facebook and joined his coaching program. After four weeks of lessons, he sent in his first attempt at a webinar for critique. The coach told him it was good to go and could be released as is.

So naturally my friend was elated, proud of his amazing progress, and could wait to put his webinar out to the world.

Ah, no.

When I spoke to him, he was depressed, and thought he wasn’t really getting his money’s worth from his coach because he didn’t give him a tough critique.

Like us all, he faced a situation, and could play either one of two default settings:

  • The positive one where he embraced his own talent and accept the compliment.
  • Or the negative one, where he questioned the motives of his coach and demeaned his own talent.

I’m not writing this to call out my Boo. (In fact he’s probably going to slap me into next week, when he sees this.)  But to highlight the choice we all face, a thousand times a day, with the inner dialogue we share with ourselves.

I could just have easily done a post showcasing how I automatically jump to the negative conclusion myself. (Cancel, cancel, let me not affirm that. Let’s say, how in the past, I would automatically default to the negative conclusion.)  And of course I am really writing this for…

You.

What is the inner dialogue you tell yourself?  What is your default setting?  And how can you improve that dialogue, to manifest better results in your career and life?

  1. WOW!! Your message moves right into my morning thoughts. Thank you. This helps remind me that I am what I think about most of the time. You rock..Heck,I ROCK

  2. So, Randy, did you watch his webinar (or presentation of same)? And if so, was it good? If you did not watch it, why? How can you make a judgment without seeing the evidence?

      1. And don't lose sight of the most important point. It isn't about me making a judgement. I'm irrelevant to the discussion. It's about the judgement he made for himself.

  3. I have to start doing blogs again. Implementing some daily stuff for my dissertation this week.

    I Also need to add in vlogs.

    The aha moment on my research for my dissertation was to start doing daily research in small chuks if time instead of doing large chunks a few times per week.

    This is how you change beliefs and habits.

    I do daily personal development, I can do daily work on my dissertation.

    Make your changes daily to create the new beliefs.
