One of my biggest pet peeves is when people call themselves “fat,” “a loser,” “stupid,” or a variety of other harsh name calling.

I feel super sensitive when I hear people say these types of negative things out loud. Partially because as a coach, I have been trained to listen. But not to just listen in any way, but to listen for specific things such as language because as soon as we put words to an experience, it shapes the way we feel about ourselves and our lives.

If we want to feel better, we must be mindful of the language/meaning we are giving events and experiences. 

I used to say really mean things to myself such as, “I’m fat”, “I’ll never be successful”, “I’m ugly” and many more mean things.

When I “woke up” and became aware of the impact this type of language was having on my life – it made sense why I was single and not succeeding in my career. DOH!

I’m not saying every word that comes out of my mouth is perfect or that I am always especially nice with the words I speak in my own head, but I consciously changed the things I was saying to myself and it literally changed my life. {Click to Tweet it!}

WordsAs philosopher, Lao Tzu said:

“Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habit. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.”

Simply put, the words we use, shape our reality. 

So, if you want to change your results, watch your language!

Here Are 4 Tips to Changing Your Language: 

1. Get rid of harsh words and tones. Replace them with kind words and soft tones. 

2. Be mindful of when you use words such as “always” and “never.” 

3. When an insecure voice arises from your mind, observe it and do not identify with it.

4. If you say something out loud and notice it was self-deprecating, you can correct it. Change the pattern! 

The subconscious mind does not know the difference between what’s true or false. It accepts the things you say, think and feel and uses them as material from which it builds your life experiences.
