We can avoid saying things that unwittingly hold us back.

Sometimes we say things to ourselves that aren’t in our self-interest. Calling yourself a loser or saying “I’m such an idiot” every time you make a mistake isn’t having a positive effect on your self-esteem (on the other hand, you should definitely try affirmations), but beyond the obviously negative self-talk, there are a host of things we say that hold us back more quietly.

While not as plainly negative as “I suck at everything,” these phrases sabotage us in a sneakier—but still damaging—way. Here are some words and phrases that work in the background to stealthily undermine us; things we’d be better off leaving behind when trying to reach our goals.

https://lifehacker.com/11-self-sabotag ... our-vocabulary-1847529464

“I don’t have time”
“I don’t know how”
“I’m not ready”
“I’ll try”
“Maybe”
“I should...”
“If it happens, it happens”
“But so-and-so really needs me”
“I’m not smart/talented/brave enough”
“Just my luck”
“If only...”

Our words have power. What we send out comes back to us, even if we don't believe it does. If your life is perfect then disregard this but, if you have many problems and sorrows, try guarding your words for a week or two and note what changes. Or do nothing and continue as you are, it's always your choice.

Over time I have become more mindful of these thoughts and the effects they have. All starting with, "I'll try." That one is the biggest one that everyone in this community should probably be familiar with, but might not really realize how often they use it, or the impact it's having.

Of course, I'm referring to Yoda's, "...do or do not..." But when I took the time to reflect on that and be mindful of how often I would say that, and then actively correct myself when I would; the change was phenomenal.

The others still creep in as well from time to time, but just even being aware of these phrases is huge.

"I don't have time." Often, I try to think, if this is important to me, I will find or create the time. But time can be tricky...

"I don't know how." You can (probably) learn. There are so many resources out there, really.

I think a lot of these can be countered with the question, "why?"
I'm not ready. Okay, why am I not ready?
I should... Okay, why aren't I?
I'm not ____ enough. Why do I think that? Or if you really believe that you aren't ____ enough, why don't I improve that aspect of myself?

Well said Link. I also sometimes allow negative statements to come out. It's important to catch yourself and clean those statements up. The other day I said I forgot something and my friend who is like minded quickly reminded me that I didn't forget but had just remembered at that point.

That's also why we need to surround ourselves with people who believe as we do. Positive friends lift us up and we lift them up during our trials in life, making success so much easier.

As to time management, I always affirm that I take full responsibility for my time and always reach my appointments safely and ahead of time.

I also take time to be thankful for what I have. I affirm I always have more then enough to do what-ever I want to do.

I affirm that I am virus free and no cold, flu, virus, or sickness can effect me. This statement actually strengthens your immune system, just as fear and worry can weaken it.

I constantly affirm that I cast out worry and fears and go boldly forward during this life. It works as affirmations are positive words that change us and our lives.

Thank you for sharing this, Master O.

One of the trickiest pieces of advice I've ever tried to integrate was was "We can only ever take people at face value". That it was okay to trust what people were telling me without second-guessing, and that the speaker was solely responsible for meaning what they say.

We can also include ourselves in this wisdom. The unconscious mind doesn't process sarcasm or humor; and what the thinker thinks, the prover proves. The negative statements we tell ourselves, out loud or internally, are hard at work to become your reality.

We don't have to walk in that darkness. :)

I think it's also important to remove statements like "I am angry, I'm mad etc..

These phrases are negatively charged and ultimately bring down our frequency. We need to learn to detach from out pain and fears. Anger is a form of pain usually generated by some form of fear. You are not anger. anger is a feeling you have which is why we should re-fraise it to express how we feel. "I feel anger or I feel angry. In this we we prevent our selves from becoming a feeling and that prevents use from psychologically associating ourselves with anger or fear.

"The negative statements we tell ourselves, out loud or internally, are hard at work to become your reality." - Master Rozen


Absolutely spot on! Seriously I am having trouble expressing how profound this statement is. I am convinced this could not have been worded any better. Thank you Rozen for sharing

"I think it's also important to remove statements like "I am angry, I'm mad" etc.."


I totally agree, it's a delicate balance between acknowledge the sensations, and embodying their definitions. The same goes for doctor 'diagnosis'. It's amazing what you can change when you go from:

"I'm Depressed" to "I am experiencing Depression."
"My arm hurts" to "my arm experiencing an injury."
"I have an Autoimmune disease" to "my body is experiencing an autoimmune response."

I acknowledge where I hold on to these sensations within myself and allow them to pass or to shift in their appropriate time. The feelings, sensations, beliefs and the time they exist in are all a part of my ecosystem.

I've posted about her before. She talks about the connection between body and mind. She talks about the difference of saying I am depressed vs saying I'm fighting depression, which implies healing is taking place. Thoughts create things from a scientific point of view.
