Description

Talking to ourselves - and learning to listen

We all speak to ourselves on a daily basis. Whether it’s out loud or an internal (or infernal) commentary, we all practice self-talk, and how we speak to ourselves can have a significant effect on our emotions and subsequent actions.

Some people’s self-talk is mostly about the future while, for others, it’s an internal dialogue about the past. Some self-talk is positive and upbeat, while other self-talk is harsh, critical, or defeatist. Self-talk can focus on other people, but, more often than not, it is about ourselves - and is often negative.

If you listen carefully, you’ll notice that your inner conversation reflects thoughts and emotions. Self-talk isn’t random. It exhibits patterns that repeat themselves. And everyone has their own characteristic self-talk that is uniquely theirs.

In The Science of Self Talk, mindfulness expert Ian Tuhovsky explains how we can rewrite the script when it comes to our internal communication. Through a series of simple exercises for use in daily life, you can understand your own self-talk in order to change the conversation.

This unique book covers:

  • Constructive self-talk and dysfunctional self-talk - and knowing the difference
  • The impact of negative self-talk
  • Learned helplessness
  • Positive self-talk - challenge or threat?
  • The Pareto Principle which says that, for many events, roughly 80 percent of the effects come from 20 percent of the causes
  • Creating the right circumstances for motivation
  • Getting to know yourself
  • Loving yourself - emotional intelligence
  • Turning down the volume on your self-talk

Self-talk is a little like turning on the director’s commentary on a movie. You can simply watch the movie, or you can add in commentary about what’s happening in it - this is, in a nutshell, what most of us do in our daily lives. The Science of Self Talk can help you to rewrite the script of your movie and improve the way that you - and others - see yourself.

This helped my negative thinking so much. <br /><br /><br /><br />

The part about labelling negative dialogue and family members was great. A great read. Straight to the point. Relatable and honest.

Short and sweet

A very quick and helpful introduction to the topic that inspires more research. It includes great practical ideas to start using off the bat.
I found the Narrator very pleasant to listen to as well.

Everyone should listen to this book

Wow this should be listened to by everyone. This book is all about changing the way you talk to yourself. Now you might say I never talk to myself but you would be wrong. You may not even be aware of it and most likely it is a negative voice. I live in a world with many family and friends being more negative than positive with me. So the last thing I need is to be negative with myself too. I found this book to be very easy to listen to and ably. Do you know a teenager? Get them this book someday they will thank you. Randy Streu is the narrator for this audiobook and his voice is perfect for this audiobook, easy to listen to and follow. I was gifted this book with the understanding that I would leave an honest review.

Great motivation!

Very satisfying content, great examples of how we diminishing ourselves with negative self talk, also piece of good advice how to transform it into positive self talk in easy way! I like the idea of walking meditation and combination of some of them too. Keep it up! Exercises are very useful as such quoting is on point.

A Great Guide

This is a great guide for those looking to change their inner musings. I've always thought of myself as a fairly positive person but after listening to this book and doing some of the exercises I realized that I could do a lot better. The author does an excellent job trying to cover the main points of being aware of one's self talk and helping to give people a starting point. Of course there's always more that can be said and done to improve but this book gives a great place to start. I enjoyed listening to it and learned a bit more about myself in the process. The narration was well done and helped to keep the listener engaged.
