Yes, you read the question right. What do you hear when you look at the mirror? Apparently, for this particular article, it is not what to you see in the mirror, but what you HEAR that makes all the difference.
Unfortunately people hear negative self talk and critical chatter more often than not. They judge themselves harshly and relentlessly. (I’m sure it is not you…I’m just saying)
The voices in their heads go on: “I’m too old; I’m too dark; look at all these wrinkles; bla bla bla. The voices go on and on, and so does the physical facial reactions to match the inner dialogue. That slowly but surely eats away their confidence, self esteem, and enthusiasm.
Question: How can one stop the negative clatter and replace it with positive prompters?
There are numerous ways; one of them is telling oneself to STOP the negative voice every time it starts the useless chat.
In my book Do Not Force it, Tap The Good; there is a whole chapter on mirror talk, the humor side of it, and how to reprogram oneself to employ his/her mind to change his/her inner voice, and hence tap into his/her infinite potential.
