Do you think before you speak? I know I sure don’t! Which is something I can:
a) openly admit
b) share that I am working on this
It is hard for us to filter between what our mind thinks & what comes out of our mouths.
Before saying something to someone, always think about how you’d feel if someone told you the same thing?
Below is a great strategy to go through in your head whenever you have thoughts or even just something to say in general?
T = Is what I am saying true?
H = Is what I am saying helpful?
I = Is what I am saying inspiring?
N = Is what I am saying necessary?
K = Is what I am saying kind?
^ Thinking the above will really help filter whether or not what you have to say is relevant or irrelevant.
Take into consideration the other persons feelings & not just your own.
Below is a little something to remind yourself that when you keep your mindset positive, positive things can happen:
Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive, because your words become your behaviour.
Keep your behaviour positive, because your behaviour becomes your habits.
Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values.
Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny.
