Recognize Your Potential and Surpass Your Dreams
By Guest Writer Deborah Brown
Coach Your Critic OUT!
The infamous inner critic, you know, that little voice inside your head that says you can not, until you're pretty darn sure it is right. Well, it is not. It is dead wrong, I am going to give you the surefire cure to oust your critic and realize your amazing potential.
Tactic Two: Talk Back
Don't stand negative self-talk. Interesting that we won't accept someone else putting us down, but we are quite content to let our inner critic do us in? Quit being your own worst enemy. When you hear "I
can not", talk back immediately! You can talk your inner critic back into silence. It is not fond of fighting.
Tactic Three: Write It Down To Size
Yes indeed, the pen is a powerful tool. Once you have learned to recognize the inner critic, and you have started talking back, keep it in its place by writing it out. This takes a little more time and a little more discipline but in the long run you will come out ahead. Write down all the icky, finicky, frustrating stuff in your head. Write freely with no editing, no reading, or no rereading. Just get it out. Vent and complain, about everything on your mind. Then you will be rid of the emotional clutter that can keep you from succeeding. But you are not finished! Write out your affirmations. All those great things that you want to do, be, and achieve. Write them like they have already happened. Believe it or not, it will start to sink into your subconscious until you find yourself making these things happen.
Tactic Four: Be Nicer to Yourself
This is permission to be a little insane. In fact, this exercise might make you feel a little funny at first, but if you keep at it, in time you won't even be able to find your inner critic. Nothing makes it shrink like a face to face showdown. So gather your courage, and look in the mirror. Instead of criticizing yourself, as we so often do, give yourself some encouragement. Biblically we are told to treat our neighbors like ourselves. If we did that, our neighbors would move! Unless, we start treating ourselves better. And it is high time we did. Write down ten great things about yourself and read them everyday. Before long, you'll begin to see that you are right. You have amazing potential and superb ideas. You are on the verge of making your dreams a reality.
These four tactics are all you need to cure your inner critic. The more you use them, the better they will work. So, create a routine that puts you at the head of your team!
