No words spoken by another can be as damaging as the words we repeat over and over in our head that are critical.
Success is passed over and often forgotten – even major accomplishments.
Somehow it is easier for most people to be critical of themselves than it is to be appreciative.
There is no need for an inner critic.
No way we should be our own worst enemy.
Those little voices of self-doubt that affect confidence.
Have you ever heard someone say to you, “Give me constructive criticism.”? I want it.
A better response is: ”What do you think you’ve done well and what can you do better”.
Balance the quest for perfection with an appreciation of accomplishment.
