116. How Our Internal Dialogue Shapes Our Communication with Others
"Is your internal dialogue shaping your reality and relationships?
In this thought-provoking episode of the Language Alchemy Podcast, Alejandra Siroka delves into the power of our internal dialogue and how it impacts our communication with others. She challenges us to focus on the judgments that we hold in our internal dialogue about other people and the impact those judgments have in ourselves and in our communication.
Through an eye-opening experiment, Alejandra guides us to examine our internal dialogue about people we like and those we don't. She reveals how our judgments and perceptions shape our interactions and relationships. By becoming aware of our internal dialogue, we can transform our communication and create a kinder, more harmonious reality.
• "Language is a way to look at reality and to relate to reality depending on what we see.” (6:07 | Alejandra Siroka)
• “If you'd like to be in thriving mode more often than in just minimum survival mode in your relationships, then notice the stories you tell yourself about other people. Albert Einstein has been quoted to say, the most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or a hostile universe. So listen to your internal dialogue to know whether your internal dialogue is friendly or hostile. And if your relationships are mostly hostile, unsatisfactory, superficial, or inauthentic, then that's because your internal dialogue is filled with negative judgments about others.” (16:06 | Alejandra Siroka)
• "If you want a reality that is kinder, more harmonious, calmer, more connecting, then, you need to use a language in your internal dialogue that sees that reality, especially other people, in the friendly way you want to experience your reality." (17:07 | Alejandra Siroka)
