Self-Talk For Building Self-Confidence

We human beings talk to ourselves all day long. This is also known as "thinking." We keep up a running commentary about a multitude of things each day.

If your self-talk tends to minimize or lower your self-confidence, right now you can choose to use better, higher, and wiser self-talk.

Just being aware of what you are telling yourself about your self-confidence can be very beneficial. If you already say things that are positive and helpful, choose to keep the same pattern. You can even improve your positive self-confidence with even greater self-talk about your self-confidence.

(Self-confidence, chapter 5 – Artscroll Publications)
