We face enough challenges on a daily basis, it’s enough to send us mad a lot of the time. To help you out here, I want to talk about your internal scripts, to make sure they are working with you, so you have the best possible chance to face the world head on.
What are your internal scripts?
They are the internal stories you are telling yourself about your life.
Why is that important?
Because it’s your internal scripts that influence how you feel about yourself, and everything that you do. If you want to be able to get ahead in life, you need to make sure that your internal script accurately represents the kind of woman you want to be, and the kind of life you want to live.
Let’s take a look at a couple of examples of different internal scripts.
Melissa just started a new job, and today is her first day. Insider her head she is telling herself that she is nervous about what could happen. She’s thinking about whether or not she will like her new boss, or the other women at work.
She’s also telling herself that if it doesn’t work out she will just go back to her old job and get her previous position back, after all her old boss said she could come back any time.
That’s a very negative and limiting internal script. So, let’s put a different one inside Melissa’s head.
Melissa just started a new job, and today is her first day. Inside her head she is telling herself that this is a great opportunity to do something more with her life than she was doing at her last job. She’s thinking about potentially meeting new friends and how she is going to ask the boss for any special advice she can give her to do the best job she possibly can. She’s also thinking a lot about how she’ll be able to go on holiday more often because of the great benefits she’ll receive at the new company.
The job is exactly the same, and so is the position that Melissa has, and even the other women and her new boss are all the same. So, what’s different?
It’s obvious isn’t it? It’s her internal script.
In the first example she is focusing on all the negative aspects about what she is doing. She’s focused on the potential things that could go wrong for her. In the second example, even though all of the aspects of the situation are the same, internally she is focusing on the positives and potential positives about the whole thing.
In the first example she’s worried. In the second, yes, she may be a little nervous still, but she is focusing on the positives, so she feels better about everything.
It’s extremely important that your internal scripts are productive and positive so that they don’t hold you back from achieving the types of things you want to achieve.
If your internal scripts are negative, they will almost certainly hold you back, and even if they don’t, they will make you worried, anxious and upset. If you switch this around though, your internal scripts will be helping you instead of hindering you.
Pay Close Attention To Your Words
To get a grip on your internal scripts, you first need to pay very close attention to what you are saying to yourself inside your head.
Second, you need to switch around everything that’s negative so that it’s positive
Thirdly, you need to fully transform any habitual negativity into habitual positivity.
Do that and you’ll be a woman without limits!
