An excellent self-talk article with many good affirmations.

Your Fat Cells Are Listening by Carol Tuttle

"At a quantum level, we are all just big bundles of energy. Our thoughts are energy, our words are energy, and our emotions are energy. Whatever you choose to focus on multiplies. That is, energy flows to whatever you think about a lot, speak about a lot, and whatever you respond to with emotion -- and it grows.

You have a relationship with your body, and YOUR BODY IS LISTENING TO YOU!"

If you didn't hear it with your own ears, and see it with your own eyes, don't invent it in your small mind and say it with your big mouth!

"Today and every day, I choose to use the gift of choice. Each day I choose what I think, what I do, what I eat, what exercise I will get, and even what my attitude will be. I know that life is a series of choices, and I choose to make my life work right. I choose to choose." ~Dr. Shad Helmstetter.

Positive Self-Talk 101

"I am good enough. I am smart enough and doggone it, people like me."

Remember Stuart Smalley, the character on Saturday Night Live who did those positive affirmations in front of a mirror? It was a funny skitóbut he was actually onto something that works.

We all talk to ourselves every day, and most of the time what we say to ourselves isn't that nice. In fact, studies show we have tens of thousands of thoughts a day and 70% are negative! And we wonder why we feel defeated? Changing how you talk to yourself can be one of the most important things you can do for your health, your mood, and your body because the voice you let play inside your mind determines how you feel.

So each morning, remind yourself to pay attention to your thoughts. Are your thoughts positive? Negative? Depressing? Discouraging or empowering? If your internal dialogue is positive and you encounter a setback, you can talk yourself through it. You will automatically say things like: "I can do this. I have overcome challenges before. I know this is temporary. I will turn things around." Positive self-talk is comforting, empowering, and contributes greatly to ease of mind and happiness.

So how do you start? Practice saying, "STOP!" whenever you notice that your internal dialogue isn't positive. When you think a negative thought, replace it with a positive statement about yourself, written in the present tense. Here are a few examples:

I am strong.
I am confident.
I believe in me.

Tell yourself these things every day. You really can have control over your thoughts, and with some practice, you will be amazed at the results.
