No sound on the planet has more power over you than the little voice inside your head! Whether it be to remind you of what you need to be doing at any point in time, or as cartoonists have depicted it over the decades, internal civil war. We’ve all seen the portrayal of the challenge between good and evil – whether to ‘eat the chocolate or the piece of fruit’; ‘tell the truth’ vs ‘what’s the harm in telling a little white lie?’ It plays out like a Shakespearean tragedy inside the theatre of our minds. Some people I work with doubt the existence of the ‘little voice’. If you’re not sure yourself, read this sentence out loud then read it in your head. Do they sound familiar? So now we all know we have that voice. What we may not know is that we have the ability to program it! Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky suggested way back in the 1930s that our internal monologue was tied to our ability to speak out loud. And Vygotsky proved that when inner speech is occurring, your larynx is actually making tiny muscular movements. In so doing, Vygotsky inferred that inner speech was caused by the internalization of external speech. He put forth the idea that inner speech goes through the same process as external speech up until the words are actually spoken aloud. Do you have a little voice in your head that keeps undermining you? Well as we have known since the 1930’s, your internal ‘self-talk’ determines how you approach the outside world. And it is not a broadcasting frequency set by the circumstances in your life as much as it is a result set by your thinking and your ultimate choice to make positive or negative self-talk your default channel. “You are the programmer of your internal self-talk”. Starting with your ‘internal dialogue’ and culminating in your exchanges with others, 100% of your success comes from your ability to communicate. So it is vital to get your internal dialogue right to ensure that the most important relationship you’ll ever have, (your connection with you) is as strong as possible! The way you define yourself with the little voice inside your head thousands of times a day, determines how you relate to, and act in, the outside world with others.

James Taylor Consulting in the Gold Coast

3JL Pty. Ltd. Located on the Gold Coast and is directed by James Taylor is consulting on a couple of new projects located in South East Queensland, the development market is changing quite rapidly at the moment and property is getting hard to find, James has witnessed deals that he consulted on in 2012/13 sell for double the initial purchase price, as an example a property in Brisbane was negotiated for 9.2 million dollars and a DA was applied for and granted the vendor was then approached by another developer who in turn negotiated the purchase of the property for 20.2 million dollars. This is just one example of the market conditions that are taking place in Queensland due to shortage of land and stock and with the Australian dollar decreasing in value overseas buyers are looking to take advantage of the value in the marketplace.
