Build up or tear down…

by Daniel · 3 comments

“Most of your unhappiness in life is due to the fact that you are listening to yourself instead of talking to yourself”. — David Martyn Lloyd-Jones.

Of course we all talk to ourselves on a daily basis. We are thinkers and self talkers. Often we talk to ourselves in the negative, “aaa look at you, you did it again, when are you gonna learn”? “OK time to get moving, you need to get to a meeting, pick up bread and milk, call Sean, ahhhh crap you forgot to call…”! Our self talk goes on and on and we listen to ourselves dump the negatives on. This kind of self talk leads to feelings of doubt, fear or despair. Before we have our first cup of coffee we may have beat ourselves into negativity and if we leave it at that we may have ruined our day.

We must go beyond reacting to what we feel. We must talk to ourselves about what is real. The truth is we will fail at times. We will forget to make the call. We will forget or fail to live up to our expectations for the day. But how we talk to ourselves must move us to positive action and not add drag to our lives. Our self talk must build us up and not tear us down!

Go, Go, Go…

Dear Dan,
Great to hear from you and your words of wisdom! Sober and loving it!!!!
You are so right, on the mark. Thank God I speak those positive affirmations
Out loud every day. All is well one day at a time and so grateful for being sober as I wake today
This week I had a job interview with a company out of china opening their firdt flagship store
In US, great opputunity! Long story short I was asked what the most difficult challenge
I had to overcome this past year, my answer, to find humilty in my life in begiining
This new journey in my career. For me it was thinking outside the box, give them a real answer and let them know who I am
, Not just what I have achieved in business, it worked! I am in the running for the position
which many people are going after in this market. I wonder where that idea came from,
That Basterd!
Love you
William. PS- God blessed me to have crossed paths with you, and opened my ears
To hear the truth you spoke to me!
