Improve Your Quality Of Life By Reducing Your Stuttering Anxiety

Newsletter 81: November 2016

Change Your Responses

Jack Canfield, co-author of the books in the series, Chicken Soup for the Soul, claims that one of the key success principles is to take 100% responsibility for your life and your results.

So if you want a different outcome, you have to change your responses. For example, give up blaming others, complaining, making excuses and so on.

Jack emphasises the power of our thoughts: “You have to harness the power of your thoughts. Your thoughts (self-talk) control your physical reality more than you realise.”

Rather than viewing your stutter as an obstacle, use your fluency technique to empower your speech. By being proactive in regard to your fluency management, and harnessing the power of positive thinking, you can improve your quality of life by reducing your stutter and the associated anxiety.
