“Control Your Destiny”: Positive Self-Talk, Students & Stephen Curry

| 0 comments

I haven’t really explored the concept of positive self-talk though, after watching Stephen Curry in the video below using it (“Control Your Destiny!”), I thought it might be work learning more about it.

I did find this NPR piece, Why Saying Is Believing — The Science Of Self-Talk, which had a lot of information, including suggesting that research says we shouldn’t use “I.” Instead, use either “you” or your own name.

Have you had experience working with students on the idea of positive self-talk?
