The Universe, our subconscious, accepts whatever we choose to believe about ourselves. What I believe about myself will become true for me, be it positive or negative. Whether I think negative or positive things about myself is a choice on my part. I have unlimited thoughts about myself that I can think. The choice is mine, always has been.
In addition, when I think or speak about another, my subconscious mind thinks that I am referring to myself. My subconscious mind does not know or recognize that other people, places and things exist, only me. So what I think and say about other people, places and things does matter as it is affecting me, improving or harming my image of myself.
