Good day beautiful people! I’m feelin’ the urge to write today. The weather is a bit blah and rainy for my liking, so writing does the trick =)
Today’s post is all about those inner critics. You know…the ones who crawl up in your head telling you can or cannot do something because of fear of failure. The ones that keep you from living your best life. The ones that say you should or should not eat something. There’s lots more, but I’ll stop there.
I have them too, but I sure as heck DO NOT have to listen to all of them, and you don’t either! Now, please use common sense here with me folks. Don't do nothing crazy. I'm merely here to share with you my personal thoughts on how to help with mindset.
Let me use myself as an example.
I remember the time how it felt before starting coaching. I didn’t know where it would land me, but if I listened to those inner critics it would’ve told me it was unsafe. It would’ve told me to stay in fear and not believe in myself or my passion to help others.
But all that was BS! Pure BS plain and simple. Coaching helps heal my heart as much as I hope to heal others.
Why do our minds decide to back-talk in the first place?
Because our minds like to keep us stuck in a hamster wheel. It’s meant to keep us safe and away from harm (which is good). But sometimes our minds keep turning and turning till there’s nowhere to go but in the same direction. Ya know what I mean?
That’s NOT where I want you to be.
I want you to quiet those voices in your head that tell you….you are not good enough. YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH!
I want you to start believing that ANYTHING is possible. YOU are possible my friend.
I want you to know that YOU CAN and WILL get out of those diets. You are MORE THAN THE SCALE!
To get unstuck:
1.) Acknowledge where the belief/thought came from. How is serving you? Is it serving you? Challenge that thought!
2.) Be kind to yourself. If it's something you feel emotional about, recognize that self-compassion is the best approach.
3.) Look at it from a different perspective. What would you tell a friend if they were feeling negative, depressed, or stuck?
The more negative critics we allow in our mind, the more power they have over us. And vice-versa, the more positive thoughts you allow, the more the critics subside over time.
My overall message to you is that, you must be willing to accept that the power to change, comes from within. No one but you can do this for you.
My friend, this is YOUR YEAR to stop criticizing yourself. I believe in you!
Need more tips? Let's work together.
Bye for now,
