How To Talk Yourself Into Success: The Most Effective Communication Skills For You To Master
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Here is an aspect of effective communication that is too rarely talked about or thought about: the quality of your communication with YOURSELF.

Just as there may be nothing more important to a relationship than the communication that links those involved, how you communicate with yourself can make a world of difference in your life.

The to improve communication at this level, pay close attention to what you are saying in order to be aware of what you are talking yourself into.

Your subconscious believes what you say. If you are not careful, you can talk yourself into a negative, self-defeating attitude.

Communication problems with others can prove costly, but probably not as costly as communicating poorly with yourself.

One of the most important communication skills to develop is the skill noticing the impact of your message upon your emotional state, including your morale, motivation, self-confidence and self-esteem.

Improving the communication in the workplace of your daily living experiences can help you to steer clear of success-sabotaging mindsets.

For instance, if you begin talking about problems with the economy, you may stir up feelings of insecurity and powerlessness within you.

Additionally, you program your subconscious to look for problems and to overlook opportunities in the economy.

If you discipline your speech to talk about the economy as offering nothing but opportunities, you program your subconscious to look for and find those opportunities, and you help yourself to stay motivated, productive, and stress-free.

Speaking CONSTRUCTIVELY is a communication skill that everyone can benefit from developing. It can be described as the skill of talking oneself into opportunities rather than into obstacles, into solutions rather than into more problems.

Observing the impact of your speech on your emotional state, and disciplining your speech to remain constructive are two ways to communicate your way into success.

Here is a third way: to notice when you are stating assumptions as if they are facts.

For instance, if you feel frustrated in a relationship, you might say something like, “We obviously never going to work well with one another”.

You are expressing an assumption here as if it was a fact.

Your subconscious then interprets this statement as fact and now you have talked yourself into a deeper relationship problem.

All you REALLY know is that you have just experienced some painful relationship strife.

But because you expressed your assumption about future possibilities as fact, you now feel entangled in a relationship that is not meant for you. You talked yourself into a bigger, deeper hole.

Make it a basic part of your personal communication skills training, applied to professional team building AND to personal relationships, to be particularly careful about speaking when you feel emotional.

Even saying something like, “I really don’t like that person” deepens the hold of a painful, critical perspective and keeps you from seeing the good, the blessings, the opportunities that every event brings.

The more emotional you are when speaking, the more deeply your speech impacts and programs your subconscious.

To demonstrate effective communication for success, stick to facts and be clear about them. Avoid confusing what you imagine, expect or speculate with what you really know.

This will help you to remain emotionally balanced, to recognize opportunities and to avert dangers, and to make better decisions.

Speaking FACTUALLY is an integral part of successfully communicating with yourself.
