Here are a few tips on how to get the upper hand when that inner-critic is bringing you down.
Dismantle it. When you notice negative mind-talk, ask yourself, “Is it true?” Most likely, the answer is no. These thoughts are not based on fact.
Understand it. Take the time to reflect on where they come from. They’re probably the result of insecurities from the past. Have compassion for yourself.
Move on. Don’t let them stop you from working towards big goals. Yes, it’s uncomfortable to step out in a new way, but go for it!
