A 5 week group program to modify negative self-talk
Are you a hot mess? Crazy? Lazy? Awkward? Stupid? Careless? Selfish? Stubborn?
Did any of those jump out at you as a word that you often use to describe yourself, even off-hand?
Do you find yourself saying something like “You’re so stupid!” or “You’re so lazy” under your breath when you mess up?
GIRRRRLLL, you know that’s not who you really are. But for some reason you just can’t shake that negative word coming back every time you mess up. It’s like a vocabulary staple and once you realize it you absolutely hate it.
One word can easily affect us in so many ways. It’s a bit mindblowing when you realize how one word has been holding you back from everything. This one word can hold you back on your self-love journey, in your career or business, in your relationships and, even, in trying new hobbies. WHAAAAAAT? How can we let one word hold so much power over us?
It’s simple. It sneaks up on us without us even realizing it. Before we know it, it’s moved into our house, sharing our bed and we’re in this awesome codependent relationship with this word. This word becomes a defining word for you and you don’t even question it anymore.
But it doesn’t have to be like that! You don’t HAVE to have this word in your life. You can end that dependency on it, embrace your truths and grow your self-love. This word is not an absolute truth. This word does not define you.
It’s time for you to throw that word away in 2018 and uplevel your self-talk. Wouldn’t you agree?
Jump aboard the Hot Mess Express
We’re leaving the station with all of our baggage on January 8th and somewhere along the way we’ll throw all of that baggage out the window.
On February 8th, we’ll arrive at our destination – a gorgeous place full of self-love and sisterhood. Our new bags will be packed with a positive word bank, systems, and a strong support system. Doesn’t that sound lovely?
Identify your negative word or phrase
In the first week, we will work on digging into that word and identifying your triggers whenever you use your word.
Accept & release the negative connotation
The secret key to letting go anything negative is to actually accept, work through it and release. Why do you choose that word?
Replace the words you use in your daily self-talk
Once you’ve accepted that word, you’re probably still going to struggle with the release. That is, until you replace it.
Embrace systems & habits to maintain
Our words (both thought and spoken) guide our habits and systems. Creating new habits begins with replacing your words.
The words you use are powerfulNot just in how you speak to others about yourself, but also in the words you use within your head. Our thoughts are the first step into action toward following our dreams and living our best lives. Our words have the ability to shape our lives completely. Your words can either hold you back or catapult you into greatness. Where is it that you want to be?

“Crazy” held me back
When I was younger, I really connected to the word crazy. I thought that it had both positive and negative connotations. Of course, I only identified with the positive connotation. I used to tell people that I was “good crazy” because I even had a scale for craziness. Good crazy meant that I would fight for what I believed in, but I wouldn’t cross the line into overboard. Good crazy encompassed my anxiety disorder. Bad crazy was the overzealous girlfrined meme, if you know what I mean. I didn’t realize I was still dismissing myself by even using the term crazy. There is no gray area with words like this. It’s black and white. Crazy means mentally unstable. Whether I was “good mentally unstable” or not, I was still telling myself that I was mentally unstable. The same applies with terms like hot mess, stupid, lazy, etc. If the general definition of the word is negative, you’re still going to harbor negative feelings toward the word. You’re holding yourself back. You’re dismissing yourself. You’re telling yourself you aren’t even worthy to sit at the table. And, girl, you are SO worthy of sitting at the table and driving your own car.
