Stop the Negative Chatter


I am seeing a pattern develop with many of the women I coach who are feeling stuck. The reason they are stuck is because they have been listening to the negative chatter in their head. No they are not crazy and they are not hearing voices, they are hearing the self talk that we all do.

What does your voice say? Have you ever heard it say anything like this?

  • I’m not good enough.
  • I’m so stupid.
  • Who do I think I am trying to run a business?
  • Nobody cares about what I have to say.
  • I can’t do this.
  • I’m not smart enough.

Next time you hear yourself saying something negative to yourself say STOP. Tell that voice to be quiet. Take this one step further and replace that negative talk with something positive. Pick one sentence or phrase that works for you. Something like I am a successful business woman. I am smart. I think it was Heather Jacobson that first gave me this idea and she liked the phrase “I am a very intelligent woman”.

In summary, stop the negative chatter and replace it with positive, affirming statements.

You are a successful business woman (or man)!
