EP156: The Change Show

  • In Today’s episode, I read a checklist from the book, What to Say When You Talk To Yourself by Shad Helmstetter
  • The book is all about rewiring your brain with positive thoughts and self-talk. I highly recommend it.
  • The checklist is to introduce positive habits and self-talk as change happens from within.
  • What you feed your mind is what you become. Feed it positivity and the world around you will change.

Amazon Alexa Tip

Did you know that you can listen to Kindle Books on using your Amazon Alexa App or listen on the Echo or Dot smart speakers?

I buy the Kindle edition of books (including this book) for usually $3.99 or less and listen on the Alexa App on my phone just like I would an Audible book or podcast.

Quote From Book What To Say When You Talk To Yourself:

Whatever you put into your mind in one way or another, is what you will get back out, in one way or another.

What does your self-talk sound like?

Are you kind and positive and encouraging when you talk to yourself?


Do you beat yourself up over all the things?

  • The endless to-do list that you can’t seem to ever finish
  • The projects that you never seem to have time for
  • The failed attempts at getting in shape
  • The inability to get ahead financially, etc.
  • I am not good at…
  • I struggle with…
  • I just can’t seem to…
  • I’m not cut out for…
