Easy Steps for Internal Constructive Criticism

This audible is short, simple, and to the point. The author sets forth that we are our own worst critic and that the negative thoughts in our head should be questioned. Once we realize all of our thoughts, even positive, should be mulled over we can get better at encouraging ourselves and get control over our negative thoughts and self-talk.

I think this book can be useful for anyone and its so short you can get through it in one sitting.

I think this will help me.

What about Randal Schaffer’s performance did you like?

His voice was clear and precise. It was an excellent choice for this book and I wouldn't hesitate to listen to him again.

Any additional comments?

I was provided a complimentary copy of this audio by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Ok, I think we can all say we've had negative thoughts about ourselves in one way or another. Personally I still think of things I did as a kid (and beyond) and think of how I could have done "whatever" differently. And of course I have moments where I forget something and yell at myself for being stupid. I don't usually beat myself up for long and for the most part I when I do something "dumb" I talk to myself in my head and then forget about. But of course sometimes there are things you just can't let go of. I'm not going to say what mine are (kinda personal) but usually those thoughts come in a torrent when I wake up at 2am for whatever reason and then I can't go back to sleep, then BAM, on come those thoughts.

Usually my method to try and clear my head is too picture a field, a pretty green field with colorful flowers and sunshine and butterfly's, and a little girl (basically me) running and having fun, not a care in the world. Honestly that doesn't work for long because my brain will stay on that thought for a minute and then flash to something else, and I have to consciously bring myself back to that sunny field. Sometimes I can fall back asleep, but more often than not I can't and I either end of lying their or listening to an audiobook hoping to distract my mind enough to nod off again.

But now I have another method to try after listening to "Self Talk." We are indeed our own worse critics and it's hard to stop. I've known about my own "self talk" for a long time, since I was a kid actually. Since I am an introvert and awkward in social settings, I was (and am) always talking to myself about being more open and out there. Not easy, let me tell you. But did just listen to Small Talk: How to Talk to People, Start Conversations, Improve Your Charisma, Social Skills and Lessen Social Anxiety and learned several techniques to try. :)

I'm not saying I am cured, but there are exercises in this book to help you work through some of your biggest negative thoughts. I've just listened to this audio once, but I will be doing it again and I will be taking notes and trying to work thru some of the exercises. I finished this story earlier today and I have been thinking about some of the tips or strategies mentioned ever since.

The narrator, I loved his voice. It reminded me of this actor, who's face I can see but the name is escaping me!!! Argh!!! When it comes to me I will be sure to update this. But I really loved his voice and since it sounded familiar, and I like the actor who's voice it sounded like, it felt comforting to hear him speak, like an old friend. Gah, talk about inner voice!! This is killing me.

I do recommend this and I look forward to listening to this again. I know it will help me if I practice and use the strategies outlined.

It was all good.

JUST what I needed!!

I used to be very confident and happy and resilient. Over the past couple of years, I’ve been going through a lot of problems mainly stemming from the way I think.

After reading time of books and doing many expensive online courses, I saw a brand new documentary of an Irish MMA fighter and his success story was AWESOME!

And during the film I realized that some of the main reasons he was so confident, happy, and successful at winning UFC fights were:

1) He was often self-talking aloud at how strong he was getting, how he was the best fighter in his weight class, and more. Yet it was beyond elaborate and I saw that both internal and aloud, this guy was psyching himself until and telling him great things about himself, his actions, his goals, and more.

2) He was constantly visualizing himself winning the next fight, and he even got as detailed as visualizing what his opponents facial expression would be at the beginning of Round 1.

After watching 5 years of this guys life being successful in his career, in his relationship, and in so many other life areas, I was so inspired because I wanted to cultivate that champion mindset and self talk he used.

I was then reminded of another audible I listened to recently where the author was an ex Navy Seal, and this guy attributed much of his success leading Seal teams in training and on missions to self talk, visualizing, and breathing patterns.

Okay now for my book review:

SELF TALK WAS ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!!!

It was JUST what I needed and I listened to the entire audible on a night walk.

Straight to the point without a bunch of fluff, this book changed my life forever.

I mean seriously...

It was so practical and easy to follow and I know starting right now I’ll be able to start practicing these strategies and my confidence and resiliency and happiness will hit all time highs!

I seriously can’t recommend the book enough. Take it from a guy that has read hundreds and hundreds of non fiction books and many in the personal development/psychology genres....if you aren’t already using self talk as a powerful resource to make you totally kick butt emotionally and mentally in life, then but this book now and listen to it right away.

You’ll be glad you did.

This is something I’ll be listening to over and over, taking notes on, studying, and making this skill a deeply engrained habit

Can you see how excited I am just pondering the possibilities of using these simple skills?

I can guarantee you this book will be getting way more 5 stars and peoples lives will change dramatically when using the tips you’ll learn in Self Talk.

I usually don’t purchase books without any reviews but I liked the Sample audio passage and for a few bucks it was a no brainer to buy it and see how it was.

Next time I will listen to it at home with a notepad and pen because this is seriously going to be a skill I master.

Many thanks to Aston Sanderson for writing this and turning it into an Audible.
