Talk Back to Those Gremlins!

108

We all do it.  That little voice that seems to appear from nowhere ….

  • I’m not good at this
  • I can’t do that
  • I don’t have time
  • I’m not sure
  • What will they think?
  • I’m such an idiot

Would you talk like that to a loved one?

The answer is ‘probably not.’

Talking to those gremlins
Next time you catch yourself talking like that to yourself, pause for a moment …. and talk back.  Don’t allow your negative gremlin to get away with it.  Give it a challenge and ask yourself the following 5 questions:

  1. Really? Is that REALLY true?
  2. What is helpful about talking to myself in this way?
  3. What could I say to myself right now that is true and more empowering?
  4. What do I really want and need right now that is making me talk to myself in such a negative way? Make it a juicy statement of intent!
  5. What can I put into place to help me achieve this?

For a wonderful book about taming your gremlin check out Taming Your Gremlin (Revised Edition): A Surprisingly Simple Method for Getting Out of Your Own Way.

Repeatedly challenging those gremlins will give you a truer and more positive perspective of yourself.

And you deserve that. We all do.

Do you want your gremlin to shut the f….k up? Start talking back to your gremlin.

Happiness Quotation of the Week

Dance like there is nobody watching!

109

Dancing is pure bliss and happiness for me.  Getting lost in the rhythm of the music.  It feels like a sexy meditation of some sort.  Loosening the mind, body and soul all at the same time.  Is there anything that makes you feel like this?

Some people talk about getting the same type of experience from running or walking or playing a sport or even an instrument.  Yoga is a good one that I also enjoy. How about sex?   Its when all parts of you feel connected and in harmony, working as one.

Apart from the feel good ‘now’ feelings, of course, the long term health benefits of using your body are marvellous.  Any habits which increase your well-being in this way can only increase health and happiness. Habit creation can sometimes take a little bit of effort but when its something you adore doing anyway then you are halfway there.  Check out my free Happiness Creation Formula for creating easy, intutive happiness habits that support you.

Is there anything that makes you feel happy in the mind, body and soul all at the same time? Could you do more of it?  Could you create an effortless habit out of it to increase your fun and happiness levels?
