Intrapersonal Communication. Every time you use words, you re-create their meaning

Intrapersonal communication is communication with oneself, using internal vocalization or reflective thinking.
Like other forms of communication, intrapersonal communication is triggered by some internal or external stimulus.
- we may communicate with our self about what we want to eat due to the internal stimulus of hunger
- or we may react intrapersonally to an event we witness
Unlike other forms of communication, intrapersonal communication takes place only inside our heads.
So, what is the point of intrapersonal communication, if no one else even sees it?
Well, it serves several social functions. For example
- a person may use self-talk to calm himself down in a stressful situation
- or a shy person may remind herself to smile during a social event
Intrapersonal communication also helps build and maintain our self-concept. We form an understanding of:
- who we are based on how other people communicate with us
- and how we process that communication intrapersonally
Keep in your mind! Every time you use words, you re-create their meaning.
The words you habitually use when you’re thinking (and then expressing) mold how you see the world.
For example, people who habitually think (and speak and write) the word „WIN” tend to find an ever-increasing number of things to win.
This relationship between word usage and perception is hugely important in business.
- When you train yourself to speak and write using clearly defined words arranged into concise sentences, you’re training your brain to think more clearly.
- More important, when you write and speak more clearly, you increase your positive influence on your team. Due to their mirror neurons, they’ll begin to imitate your clarity in their own thought processes.
Clarity is contagious. The conversations you have with yourself have a direct impact on how you feel and how you behave.
If your self-talk is filled with self-doubt, harsh criticism, and catastrophic predictions, you’ll struggle to reach your goals.
You can train your brain to think differently. In fact, training your brain to think differently physically changes your brain.
Keep Building Mental Muscle!
Just like any new skill, training your brain to think differently takes time. But the more you practice positive thinking, the more mental muscle you’ll build.
Start now with ”I`m a winner!” And you will find a way to be a winner.
