We give ourselves so many negative messages in a given day that it becomes necessary to do a little emotional housekeeping. We want you to begin to notice every time you say something negative to yourself. Whether it’s overtly harsh or something as small as “oh I’m so clumsy,” we give ourselves so many negative messages in a day that the only way to truly banish that nonsense is to carefully observe our thoughts and words. The next step is to correct those negative statements when they come up. With practice, you’ll find yourself slowing down and finally completely removing those self-defeating messages from your vocabulary.
