The comforting voice is that voice in your head when you try and do something like, lose weight and it says, I can’t do this.

Overcoming negative thoughts is a crucial step in nurturing our mental health and well-being. The incessant chatter of our inner critic, fueled by negative self-talk and persistent pessimistic thoughts, can significantly impact our lives. These negative thought patterns often lead to anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. It’s essential to recognize the damaging effects of constant negative self-talk on our psyche and emotional state.

One effective way to combat negative self talk and challenge negative self-talk patterns is to replace them with positive self-talk and affirmations. A positive inner voice can help shift our thought patterns from negativity to positivity, fostering a healthier mindset. Techniques like cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness are known to address unwanted thoughts and cognitive distortions, helping us reframe our beliefs and emotional responses. Seeking professional help, such as online therapy, can provide valuable strategies to transform negative thought patterns into a more positive mindset. By confronting and countering negativity with positive self-talk, we can gradually reduce stress and limit the influence of our worst critic, our inner voice, ultimately improving our mental well-being.

And we all have that in our heads. When I was losing weight for many years, I tried and I just never believed because I listened to that part of myself that said, Jacob, you’re not good enough. You’re not great enough to lose £60 and I believed it. So what you guys need to do is take that voice as a challenge when it says you can’t, that has to become the reason as to why you can. I talk a lot about turning all the negative things in your life into positive ones.

And this is the most important one because it’s internal it’s inside you. This is the one thing that you can control your thought. So the next time that you guys hear that voice in your head saying, you can’t, you’re going to say, I’ll show you and then go ahead and do anything, no matter how small it is to prove that voice wrong and get some traction and show yourself and your comfort voice that you can do this because can simply put guys, there’s nothing special about me.

I’m no different from you. And if I can do it, there’s no doubt that you guys can.

Thanks, guys. That was today’s Trainer Tip Tuesday. And I’ll see you guys next week. Take care.
