How many of us have heard someone at a party say, “I’m just not good at remembering names?” We become what we tell ourselves internally. This is called, “self-talk,” and there’s good self-talk and there’s bad self-talk. Think your bad at remembering names, declare it to the world, and no surprise you’ll be exactly what you say to yourself.

“I’m not good with numbers.”

“Never been good at speaking to an audience.”

“I’m terrified of flying.”
