SELF TALK by Dr Denis McBrinn: Narrated by Sara Dylan

Welcome to this short audio presentation which is designed to bring a clear definition of what self-talk is, how to achieve effective and positive self-talk, and to give you an opportunity to focus and reflect on the level of effective and positive self-talk currently in your life.

"There's someone in my head, but it's not me." Roger Waters

There is a voice inside everyone's head that is constantly talking.

It never stops: Always chattering away, every minute of our waking hours. This is known as our "Self-Talk" or "Internal Monologue".

No one else ever hears this internal voice but us. We are the sole listeners to our self-talk.

What our self-talk repeatedly says to us and how we respond to it, has a big influence on our life.

If our egos are too dominant, then our self-talk may be critical and demanding. What does your self-talk say to you? Is it generally positive or negative? Is it compassionate or critical? Is it constructive or conflicting? Is it a voice of hope and encouragement? A voice of anxiety and fear?

"What One Can Be. One Must Be" Abraham Maslow

Our potential as human beings is closely associated with our human needs.

There is an emptiness in human hearts that can lead to anxiety, regret and disillusionment, when ignored. But a better understanding of our fundamental needs and their priorities, helps us to shape our destiny And experience a life of meaning and purpose.

This short audio presentation by Dr Denis McBrinn and narrated by Sara Dylan, is designed to bring a clear and understanding of what being true to yourself means, and to lead you gently into reflection on how your true self can bring clarity to your daily living and the realisation that: To be true to others, you must start by being true to yourself.

Once you are true to yourself, you’re also true to other people.

"May the True, Higher Self Within - Always Guide You" Krishna

Our true self is the soul of being. It is the part of us not defined by: ego, status, job, role or function.

It is our evolving higher self that seeks to rise above our basic instincts.

It represents the blue print for the realisation of what we can become. Our true self is the "silence" within that calls us to live our best possible lives.

As young children, we instinctively hear this inner call with great clarity. We live joyfully in the present moment and laugh and smile, much more than adults.

But as we grow up, worldly matters arise and the ego instinctively develops as part of survival.

We then learn to use psychological defences to protect ourselves from the harsh, competitive world.

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent" Eleanor Roosevelt

The word esteem derives from the Latin meaning "to estimate".

Self-esteem is about how we estimate or regard ourselves and the beliefs we have about ourselves.

It is related to the type of person we think we are; our values; skills and abilities.

Esteem is associated with our sense of accomplishment.

"If prayer is you talking to God, then intuition is God talking to you." Wayne Dyer

What is intuition? How does it arise in our lives? How do we develop it? Derived from the Latin word Intueri, it means “to look within".

Intuition is our inner wisdom that develops from awareness of the "unseen and hidden".

Intuition lies within our subconscious. Intuition is like whispered guidance from our soul.

It is our soul's equivalent of "Sat. Nav." or "GPS".

Many great innovations, have been ignited by sparks of intuition.

All of us have the ability to be intuitive; We just need to give it more attention and practice.

"Life's Greatest Opportunities are Fulfilled by Facing Life's Greatest Challenges" Eleesha

There is no shortage of challenges in life! Life is a journey through loss with many obstacles along the way. We will experience the loss of loved ones through bereavement: The loss of good health through illness, accidents or old age.

And major life events such as: getting married, giving birth, divorce, redundancy and retirement are all challenging times that can cause stress and anxiety.

When something difficult and challenging happens to us, we have three choices. We can either allow the situation to define us for the rest of our lives. Let it destroy us. Or use it to strengthen us and to make us better, rather than bitter.

This audio learning experience will give you the opportunity to make the decision to become stronger, more assertive, and better, not bitter.

"I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed" Michael Jordon

A basic human need is to grow and achieve success at some level in our lives. You might seek success in your profession; you might want success on the sporting field; or to be a successful parent; or to be successful in your business; or to succeed in living your spiritual or religious beliefs.

Each of us has our own definition of success. But the clearer we are on what success means for us, the more likely we are to achieve it.

“The heart that gives, gathers.” Tao Te Ching

Much happiness can be obtained by giving.

When we give of ourselves to others we feel the glow of the life force flowing through us.

Our sense of spiritual fulfilment is strongly associated with our contribution to the well-being of others.

No one can survive without others contributing in some way to their welfare.

New born babies do not survive unless they are given care and attention from others. Babies cannot develop alone.

Giving and receiving is an essential human need. We have evolved to give and to receive.

Ours is the most complex culture in history.

We experience more activity and devour more information in one day than our ancestors did in a lifetime.

We live in the midst of an intense technological haze of consumerism, advertising and entertainment.

"Once I had money and I spent every dime, still I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind"

When we think of abundance and prosperity in our lives we usually think of wealth and material things.

But the word prosperity comes from the Latin meaning "to live in hope".

True prosperity results from living with an attitude of hope and faith in finding abundance: Abundance, not just in material things but also in health and in spirit.

"Focus on finding a solution, rather than just dwelling on the problem"

Good problem solvers put the focus on finding a solution rather than the problem.

Defining a problem clearly and correctly is important - a problem fully stated is half-solved.

But most of us spend 80% of the time on the problem and only 20% on finding a solution.

We tend to be "Problem Focused" rather than "Solution Focused" because it is easier to blame than act.

This audio learning experience includes a guided process for using left and right brain characteristics for problem solving.

Tragic events do not heed nor take consideration of our human feelings.

It is entirely normal to experience feelings of outrage, hurt and sorrow at such times.We may feel devastated, angry and want revenge.

But feelings of being wronged and hurt, while normal, can prolong our suffering.

Although it is not easy, dealing effectively with sorrow requires us to accept, forgive and gradually let go.

Tips on being Assertive by Dr Denis McBrinn, narrated by Sara Dylan. This audiobook will bring to you a clear and comprehensive list of useful tips to help you become more assertive

The communication skill of being assertive, is about striking the right balance between our needs and the needs of others.

If we are always centred on satisfying our own needs, at the expense of others, we will be perceived as being selfish and aggressive.

On the other hand, if we are always putting the needs of others first and neglecting our own essential needs, we risk being taken for granted and our self-esteem will suffer.

Assertiveness is about finding the right response to situations, that is neither aggressive nor passive. It is an important communication tool, that can be learned and developed, with practice.

By Dr Denis McBrinn

In our culture we have been conditioned to fear failure. We hate to make mistakes, dislike criticism and don’t like to appear stupid in the eyes others. Whether it is in our careers, business, education, relationships, sport or in life generally, we don’t want others to think of us as failures. In some cases we will deny or cover things up rather than admit mistakes. It’s because everyone loves a winner. Everybody needs to love and to be loved. If we don’t win then the fear is that we may not be enough and we won’t be loved.

But this is not reality. No one is perfect. No one is right all the time and no one wins all the time. Studies of very successful people reveal that they faced many setbacks and had many failures along the way to ultimate success.
