Who'd Have Thought It?

So what's got me so worried?


Hello %FirstName%.

Welcome to Who’d have thought it?

They say that talking to yourself is the first sign of madness, but we all do it ...most of the time. I’m not talking about out loud here, I’m talking about all the thoughts that are continually running through your head: your self-talk. Once you're aware of it and train yourself to be in control of it, it makes a huge difference to feeling happier at work and elsewhere


Want to find out more: Let’s open up the box and find out.

There is nothing you need to worry about later.


There’s a phrase I’ve heard a lot this month from a lot of people and yes, if I’m honest, I’ve caught myself saying it a couple of of times too. It’s a bit of a throw-away phrase really which we use when we’re putting something off:

“We’ll [I’ll / let’s / why don't we] worry about that later”

When we say that, we’re setting ourselves up to experience whatever "that" is as some kind of problem that we need to (and will) worry about or find more difficult that we need to. In other words, programming yourself for stress.

How would it be if you didn't do that? What if you programmed yourself to find life easier? Might be good, eh?

So this month, pay attention to what you're saying to yourself (how you’re programming yourself) and find a way to do it that’s more helpful to you and others.  When you find yourself saying “I’ll worry about that later” why not change the thought to “I’ll deal with that effortlessly [happily / easily / etc] later”. It’ll make a difference to your day.

Here’s to your success.


PS. Keep going with this one. In a month’s time you’ll have created a new habit where your first thought will be the positive one.
