Today I want to talk to those of you who have a mean voice inside your head. Maybe it’s the voice of self-doubt questioning yourself. Maybe it’s your internal critic, your judge that lives inside your head. It’s pretty common for folks to wrestle with negative thoughts that want to run through your mind and loop over and over, stirring up negative energy with them.The first thing that I want you to know is, that mean voice in your head is a liar. A bold-faced liar.
Those things are not true and there’s actually no benefit in you listening to them, buying into them, and spending more time swirling in that negativity. Those negative thoughts are really just symptoms of our own insecurities, anxieties, or our own feelings of depression. We want to start disempowering them as opposed to feeding into them.
I want to give you 2 strategies today that might help with that.
When you are in a negative state, one of the things that can be helpful is to consciously choose a positive energy state that you would prefer to be in instead. That way you have something to shift towards. For example, if you’ve really been doubting yourself lately, you might say “What I really want to feel instead is, confident.” So, the first thing you can ask yourself is “How would I rather feel instead?” Use that as a beacon for going forward. There are some additional tools and strategies for accessing that positive state that my team and I would be happy to give you.
The second tool that I want to give you is, when the mean voice inside your head has made being inside of your head a hostile environment, get the heck out of there. Get away from that voice. Don’t pay attention to it. Go outside, go see a friend, turn on a funny movie. Do something to distract yourself to interrupt that negative loop inside your mind.
