How we talk to ourselves dictates how we show up and interact with others. So, when we spiral and indulge in negative self-talk, we block our growth, creativity and, ultimately, greater levels of success.
Begin moving to a more positive mindset by looking at what part of the interaction didn’t go as well as you would have liked. See if there are areas for you to improve on, and if so, view it as a learning experience. Remember that the interaction was only one instance of your life. It doesn’t define you.
Once you understand what helps you move into a better mindset, you can see the negative self-talk for what it is — a story that’s not true.
