Recover From Stuttering - Let’s Take Control Of Our Own Fluency Management (Part 2)

Newsletter 45: November 2013

Let’s continue on with the transition of technique. The October and November newsletters are looking at how you can take ownership and control of your own fluency management. This month we will consider five more positive aspects of self that will help lead to successful fluency management. Remember, now that you have your wonderful technique, the ball is in your hands. Run with it and start kicking some goals.

  • I STAY POSITIVE

    I am a person who bounces back from adversity. I am positive and I don’t let a problem or hiccup with my speech ruin my day. I get back on the Ezy-Speech horse immediately.

  • I CHALLENGE MYSELF

    I take on new and more difficult speaking situations with confidence and practise technique whenever I can. I practise every time I open my mouth and think before I speak. I never speak spontaneously. I am courageous in challenging speaking situations. I do it, and it helps me grow as a person.

  • I ADDRESS MY TECHNIQUE

    Every time I prepare to speak, I address my technique. Ensuring that technique is always there means that fluency is always there. It means that confidence in technique is maintained.

  • I SUPPORT OTHER PEOPLE WHO STUTTER

    I am a person who is supportive of other stutterers and am willing to make myself available to help others within the Ezy-Speech Network and their quest for fluency. Now I have much more control over my own fluency, I find myself listening to people more carefully when in conversation. I am becoming more caring and not so self-absorbed.

  • I EXPERIENCE LIFE TO ITS FULLEST

    By taking on more speaking roles, I now find myself experiencing much more in my life than I ever would have before! The world is my oyster. Speaking opportunities for me now offer excitement and new possibilities.

Over these two months we have looked at a number of positive affirmations that will help you focus on ways to help your fluency transition from important clinical practice to more real-world speaking situations. Often people find this the most difficult part of fluency management. Set yourself small achievable goals, don’t expect big results too early, and reward yourself for success.

Remember that mastering your dysfluency is more than just undertaking therapy for your stutter. More importantly, you have to accept that there are going to be major changes in how you feel about yourself, others and life in general. Get ready for the overwhelming feeling of positivity and happiness that goes along with finally managing your fluency.
