There’s a little voice that runs in my head that tells me “Jenn, you can’t….”

You can’t start your own business.

You can’t lose the baby weight.

You can’t be a full time working mom.

You can’t fit in a workout today.

You can’t afford to live there.

You can’t fix your marriage.

Maybe I am overly cautious, maybe it’s a lack of confidence, but I know I’m not alone. The truth is we all have moments of self doubt.

Negativity is a slippery slope. One negative thought can lead to another and another, so how (and when) do you pull yourself out?

I started implementing a “Power Phrase” which is something I learned from a podcast by Chalene Johnson.

A power phrase is something that you say to yourself in moments of self doubt. In times when you know in your head and your heart you have to do something that scares you. In times when your inner voice is telling you “no, you can’t.” What do you tell yourself to get through it? In those moments, I say these words in my head:

I set the record straight: “Actually, I can.” You’re telling me I can’t, but you’re lying. I CAN. Call me crazy, but it works.

What we constantly tell ourselves over and over again eventually becomes our reality. Make sure you’re telling yourself what you want to hear.

Chances are you already have a power phrase, but if you don’t, take some time today to think about what it might be. Here are a few examples:

That’s not true.

Oh, no you don’t.

It’s not gonna kill you.

All is well.

I got this.

So tell me, what is YOUR power phrase? 

xo,
Jenn
