Like our physical habits, we all have mental habits that often manifest themselves in the form of self-talk, or conversations, comments, etc. we have in our heads. And indeed there are parallels here between physical habits and mental habits. The way we talk to ourselves about the events in our lives is subject to the same laws of learning and habit formation as physical behaviors. It has been said that “things happen in life,” but HOW you INTERPRET, REACT, and ASSIGN MEANING to those things determines how we feel. And if our thoughts determine how we feel, we can change how we think to change how we feel. That is, we can identify and examine our self-talk habits to feel better on a repeated basis. As Tony Robbins says: “The only thing keeping you from getting what you want is the story you keep telling yourself.”
