Recover From Stuttering - Find a Route to Success

Newsletter 17: July 2011

If I steer my vessel in the wrong direction, I can find a map and chart out a new course. Stopping is not an option. I will find my way as long as I keep my eyes on the prize. For people who stutter, the prize is the achievement of fluency. If you find yourself steering in the wrong direction, find your way by adopting a fluency technique that works.

Success is a journey, not a destination. That is why I strive to make each step count. A positive attitude helps me move forward and embrace my fluency technique.

Flexibility allows me to prosper despite failure. Being flexible gives me the strength to keep going when I would rather stop. I will persevere until I master the fluency technique, then I will continue to manage my stutter by using technique whenever I speak.

Self-Reflection Questions:
1. What do I do when I reach a dead end?
2. How might I become less rigid and more flexible?
3. What changes can I make to ensure that I enjoy the journey just as much as the end reward?

Ezy-Speech Affirmation of the Month

I AM THE BODY IN MOTION THAT STAYS IN MOTION.

This universal law of physics applies to both my body and mind. Once I commit to using my fluency technique, it's easy to maintain momentum. Knowing this, I can soar past obstacles in my path and remain focused on my tasks and goals. The energy of my forward momentum helps push challenges aside. My active and focused mind is able to figure out a way to work with, or overcome, difficulties. Sometimes I may have to slow my speech down and then build up the speed gradually as I regain confidence in my fluency technique, but I always maintain momentum. I choose to maintain my forward momentum in order to achieve fluency. Today, I strive to be the body in motion that stays in motion. With my forward momentum, I can handle any falter with my speech. My strategies are set to keep me on course to attain my fluency goals.
