People talk within themselves throughout waking time, known as internal conversation, internal monologue, self-talk, inner speech, inner discourse, or internal discourse. It is pretty natural and normal.
However, some people argue in their heads, leading to internal conflict, anxiety, and depression. Most challenges in individuals arise due to the arguments within their minds. When people feed their minds with negative information, they evolve as negative individuals, whereas when people provide their minds with positive information, they develop as positive individuals.
Don’t waste your precious mental time.
When you argue in your head, you poison your mind and waste your precious time. It may have adverse effects on the people around you. People often think that wasting time is physical. It is mental as well. People waste more of their mental time and less physical time in their lives. When you excessively think about negative people and unpleasant events from the past, you waste your precious time mentally.
Research shows that people waste 30 percent of their time thinking about their unpleasant past that cannot be changed. So, learn to live in the present without thinking about your unpleasant past and worrying about the future. Feed your mind with positive thoughts and work constructively and creatively to achieve success.
Avoid becoming a chronic overthinker.
Overcome the paralysis of analysis. Avoid thinking as follows: I wish I succeeded as an entrepreneur. I wish I had been born into a healthy family. I wish I had a regular education. I wish I had had an education from prominent educational institutions.
I wish I had had a mentor or coach in my early life to become successful. Avoid irrational imaginative internal arguments. Be realistic and practical. Be positive and confident. See the light in you to lead your life with peace and happiness.
“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” – Marcus Aurelius.
Avoid imaginary irrational arguments in your head.
Here are some tips to avoid arguing in your head. Don’t take unhealthy criticism personally. Be thick-skinned. Avoid individuals who enjoy discussing with others. Don’t react to them. Ignore them. Act positively. Detach from negative individuals and attach to positive individuals. Have self-awareness.
Understand the power of internal monologue and leverage it constructively. Write down the journal. For instance, whenever there is an issue or conflict in my mind, I write it down. It serves as a therapy. I get relief and a solution for it. Additionally, I unlock the power of my subconscious mind to find solutions for problems and resolve conflicts effectively.
Rehearsing arguments is a double-edged sword.
Research shows that rehearsing arguments in your mind ends up causing more harm than good, leading to mental illness and damaging your body. It adversely affects your mind and body. However, litigation lawyers often rehearse mentally before arguing in the courts. Before writing an article or research paper, I play out the whole scenario.
Before uploading a video on my YouTube channel, I explain the whole scenario. Before attending an interview, podcast, or webinar as a guest, I present the entire scenario. It helps me contribute my best as I anticipate probable questions and rehearse with my answers. So, playing out the whole scenario is a double-edged sword. It all depends on how you use your mind and subconscious mind.
