In the latest installment of Shark Theory, host Baylor Barbee dives deep into the power of self-talk and the importance of being in one’s own support group. The episode titled “The Big Event 2024” begins with Baylor’s excitement and preparation for an upcoming event, leading to an insightful discussion about internal dialogues and the influence they have on our lives.

Baylor begins with a relatable anecdote about choosing between a handheld mic and a lavalier mic, which serves as an entry point into the exploration of what we say under our breath. In two comprehensive paragraphs, he challenges listeners to consider the silent words that shape their self-perception, addressing the impact that negative and positive self-talk can have on an individual’s psyche. Baylor encourages listeners to examine the supportive nature of their social circles and stresses the significance of choosing to turn up the volume on affirmative thoughts while diminishing the power of negative ones.
