I believe that it's important to listen to your inner dialogue; however, I believe that it's more important to improve your inner dialogue. One way to change your inner dialogue is by changing your speech.
"Don't look at where you fell, but where you slipped." - African Proverb
Thoughts come before your Speech, while Actions come after. Like the steering wheel on a car, your actions follow what you say. So, what you say is very important. If your speech is important to your direction, and thoughts determine your speech, what determines our thoughts? This is actually a very complicated question since we think so many things. While we have many various and sundry thoughts, there is a dominant pattern to your thinking. This pattern is created by your belief system.
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ. - Romans 10:17
What we say contributes to what we believe. How much it contributes is dependent upon a few things. First, how passionately did you say it? Emotion increases the likelihood that you will incorporate your words into your belief system. That's often why many people hold onto non-productive belief systems from their childhood. For example, if the father yells at the child that they'll never amount to anything, the child will internalize those words.

Second, how many times did you say the words? Just like creating a new habit, repetition of speech will create new beliefs. A corollary to this is how often you say the words. Compare creating a new belief to memorization. When you repeat things over and over and over for five minutes, you will remember what you have been repeating. The question is how long you will remember it. After placing the words into your memory, you need to support that memory with repetition that is spaced out over time. One methodology that is effective is to repeat the words enough to incorporate into your short-term memory (5-10 minutes), then repeat them from memory after 6 hours, then again after twelve hours, then again after 24 hours, then again after 48 hours. Each time double the amount of time between repetition.

The concept of spacing repetition out over time is similar to resting your muscles between exercise. When you create new memories, you are actually making new physical connections in your brain. If you rest in between repetition, those connections have time to establish themselves. Each time you repeat the words, the connection becomes stronger.
