“Be mindful of your self-talk. It’s a conversation with the Universe.”
Most people I know believe that the Universe hears and acknowledges everything we put “out there” and does in fact respond in kind, i.e. send out a positive thought and you get a positive response and, alternatively, put out a negative thought and you get a negative response. That makes sense doesn’t it? So then, being the sensible and intelligent beings we are, we should be extremely mindful in what we say when we converse with ourselves as everything we say will be heard, acted upon and responded to in kind. Surely also it is better to be in a positive frame of mind as this gives us power in believing in our own abilities too which can only help the Universe in helping us. Self-doubt needs to be relegated to a faraway galaxy!
