If you have worked with Ruby Cubes in the past you will know one of our main focuses is on language. We focus on the language we use verbally and more importantly our self-talk.
Self-talk is the language that goes on in our heads and determines how we think and feel about things. This has bought me to look into how we often describe our lives and as we move into this new year, we urge you to take the time to think about the following;
As you become more and more aware of your language, do you hear yourself saying, my life’s really busy?
Busy has the connotation of being hectic, out of kilter, time-poor and often brings on a level of stress. What if you changed that to thinking about and stating that your life is really full?
Full has a connection to fulfillment, abundance, and meaningfulness. Often, we hear people say, particularly those in business, that they seem to be doing so much more for less return and others stating how much they seem to be juggling their day-to-day commitments.
There is no denying this is often the way life can be, so maybe it’s time to change our internal language and really focus on what matters and what truly makes a difference. This might mean viewing the tasks that you’re doing as bringing you closer to your goals, whatever they may be. Because whilst there can be external circumstances that we have no control over, we always have control over how we view them.
Research has shown, that those who are able to remain positive during times of change or when they’re under pressure come through stronger, more focused, and able to achieve much greater results. Mindset and attitude are without doubt fundamental in creating this success.
So, as you embark on the year ahead, do so with the intention of creating a new and different alignment. A great way to begin is by challenging or being aware of your language. As you do and you change that language, you will notice that it changes your thoughts and then, ultimately changes your experiences. We really urge you to look at your language, listen to your language and hear your language in order to truly enjoy the year ahead.
