What is the Quality of Your Communication with Yourself?By Nigel D St.HillThe quality of our life is the quality of our communication. It is not the events of our life thatdetermine how we feel about things or how things turn out, but rather how we communicate withourselves about the events of our life. It is not what happens, in other words, it is what we dowith what happens inside our head that determines how we feel and how we react. If we want tomaster our own life, we have to master how we communicate with ourselves.The way we are feeling about anything in life, is based on the meaning that we associate withthat situation. In other words nothing in life has any meaning, except the meaning we give it.Here is an example. A friend once told me that while on his regular morning run with his dog onthe highway, he heard this screeching sound behind him, as he looked back, he noticed thedriver beckoning to him to get in the car quickly. Completely startled, he asked, why? To whichthe man replied that there was a dog chasing him. You see, that man was badly bitten by a dog,so in his mind he projected his fear onto the situation.We must learn how to communicate with ourselves in empowering ways and not indisempowering ways. Most of us in life get caught up in the habit of doing something, and justdo it that way over and over again, until pretty soon, we forget why we even started or why wewere doing it in the first place. You dont want to remain unconscious. Unconsciouscommunication creates pain. I’ll ask you this question, why do we communicate?I believe we communicate for three reasons: 1. To create a positive feeling within ourselves or to amplify a positive feeling we are already having. 2. To get out of negative feelings or a negative state. 3. To create a new result. We dont like the way something is happening and we want to change it.

This leads to the questions: “Why do you want to create a new result? Why do you want tochange anything?”The only reason you want to change anything in your life is, because you think that if you dothat (get the new dress, car, relationship) you will feel better. Isnt that true? The only reasonyou seek to create new results is to feel good. Why do you want to get out of the negativefeeling? It is to feel good.The challenge is that most of us dont communicate in a way to make us feel good or thatempower us. This week, I encourage you to pay attention to your self-talk. What are you tellingyourself? Is it empowering or disempowering you?Nigel St. Hill is a writer and a life and money management coach helping people discover theirpath to prosperity, so that they could live the life of their dreams.
