How Self-Talk can change Perceptions

Recently while listening to a video from NLP Trainer Kain Ramsay, I learned that we could interpret our self-talk in three ways.


The Head-Heart-Gut model that Kain Ramsay shared is an interesting way to analyse how we think and behave.


Have you heard the phrase “Use your Head” in the context of a discussion?


When we use our heads, we usually think logically and focus on right versus wrong.


Like a mirror that reflects everything, when we use our heads, we rationally evaluate the pros and cons, focusing on the problems.


Using our heads seldom involves emotions.


On the contrary, when we use our hearts, we are focused on what we want and think about a desired state.


Logic and rationale don’t have a place while thinking from the heart.


Our Gut tells us what we can do and the next steps towards what we want.


Our Gut tells us that we must take responsibility for what is essential for our success and happiness.


Using the Head-Heart-Gut model, we can identify how our self-talk varies from one context to another.


Our self-talk has the potential to change our perceptions, but we must choose actions that can bring us closer to our goals


How are you listening to your Head, Heart and Gut?


How is your Self-Talk changing your perceptions?
