Video Tip: The No Negative Self Talk Rule! Don’t Let Your Biggest Enemy Live Between Your Ears
Written by Lisa Montanaro | September 18, 2020

In this quick video, I share one of the rules I ask all of my clients to follow — the No Negative Self Talk Rule. Language is powerful and you need to make sure that the messages you send to yourself aren’t always deflating ones. Learn to rephrase your language to more positive messages. Explore what’s at the core of your negative talk, and try to combat it before it leaves your lips. I give some examples of how to do that to help you along.

Remember, don’t let your biggest enemy be the one that lives between your ears!

Helping others be the best versions of themselves gets me jazzed!

I’ve worn many hats in my lifetime—often at the same time—while enjoying fulfilling careers. I’ve been a performer, teacher, sign language instructor, lawyer, career counselor, law professor, coach, consultant, mediator, entrepreneur, speaker, trainer, writer, and author. 

I’m an eternal optimist and life-long learner, constantly researching ways to improve personal and professional effectiveness. And it brings me great joy to then pass on the results of that persistent curiosity to my clients and audiences. 

Of all the career hats I’ve been privileged to wear, my favorite is owner of this business since 2002. Why? Because it provides me the opportunity to work with wonderful organizational and individual clients. On any given day, I get to connect deeply with audiences, work with dedicated teams, improve workplaces, watch clients have a-ha moments, and know I’ve made a difference in their lives and careers. And that is very satisfying.
