We can be our own worst enemy.
The troubling voice in our heads – that inner critic – becomes comfortable tearing down confidence and self-esteem. If others don’t do it, we learn to do it.
Change the inner critic that is holding you back.
Defend yourself – don’t allow verbal attacks to go unaddressed.
Speak up and advocate for yourself – it is not the job of others to be our advocates. We must go first.
Don’t avoid the criticism that stimulates your inner critic – deal with it in a positive way that encourages growth.
Learning to confront and battle your inner critic takes time – it’s not possible to push it away with any one move.
Live a life of approval and acceptance from the most important person in your life – you.
