Have you ever thought that the origin of everything you communicate about yourself or your organization all begins with what you are saying to you? It’s called INTRApersonal communication—what you say to yourself. Our self-talk is a vital component of how we communicate with others around us, how others view us, and how successful we are in life. (Kinda deep, I know.)
I encourage you to pay attention to your own self-talk. What do you say to yourself…
- When you’re facing a tough challenge?
- When it’s late and you still haven’t written those donor thank you notes and you just want to go home?
- When that donor says no? or yes?
- When you fail?
- When you’re faced with a situation where you might fail or are likely to fail?
These are often scripts that we replay in our brains over and over again throughout our lives. If we can become aware of those scripts and even consciously change those scripts, we can often change the patterns in our lives.
Take note of what you say to yourself. What do you think about what you’re saying to you?
