    It s kinda like the ear doctor clearing out your earwax so they can best see your eardrum Eieww but you get my drift right 3 Steps to Silence Your Inner Critic Step 1 Identify Your Critic The first step to erasing the inner critic s power is to identify it and take it from an unconscious automatic response to conscious awareness Who s voice is it Where does it emanate from What does it sound like Is it near or far Booming and close Step 2 Change Your Critical Voice We have the power to change how the critical voice occurs to us simply by changing aspects and characteristics of it Change the tone and pitch of the critical voice Change the physical location of the voice make it some from somewhere silly like your kneecap Make it sound like farther away less vivid less menacing less powerful Put it in a silly cartoony voice one that makes you laugh that you can t take seriously Step 3 Strengthen Your Positive Voice Nature abhors a vacuum and without a new toy for the mind the negative critical voice could easily sneak back in Strengthen your own positive encouraging voice to support you towards your bold action Think of a positive encouraging voice Is it yours a coach s a mentor s a friend s If the voice is not yours change it so you are hearing the encouragement in your voice Make the voice louder brighter more vivid Boom it as if from loudspeakers Add images mental movie clips to the encouragement Let your encouragement fill your mind a great movie of positivity in your personal theater To your clear channels and a booming theater of success Cynthia Share this Share Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google Pinterest Like this Like Loading 5 Comments on Strengths Strategy Video 1 3 Steps to Silence Your Inner Critic and Create a Clean Slate Lisa 04 14 2013 at 6 25 pm oooo I loved ID ing my inner critic As soon as you gave your example I totally heard the BIG BAD BOOM from the top of my head it makes me get heavy in the shoulders and my neck feel sore UGH ish hehehe Hearing it as a tiny toon under my toe I thought I d just take a step well what big bad boom THANKS Lisa 04 14 2013 at 6 26 pm oooo I loved ID ing my inner critic As soon as you gave your example I totally heard the BIG BAD BOOM from the top of my head it makes me get heavy in the shoulders and my neck feel sore UGH ish hehehe Hearing it as a tiny toon under my toe I thought I d just take a step and well what big bad boom THANKS Cynthia Lou 04 14 2013 at 6 29 pm LOL that s great imagery love it thanks for sharing Lisa The more silly examples I collect the more fun

  • Stop Wasting Energy Hiding “Flaws” – Book Review: “The Gifts of Imperfection” by Brené Brown | Cynthia Lou
    Resilient Spirit Letting Go of Numbing and Powerlessness 4 Cultivating Gratitude and Joy Letting Go of Scarcity and FEar of the DArk 5 Cultivating Intuition and Trusting Faith Letting Go of the Need for Certainty 6 Cultivating Creativity Letting Go of Comparison 7 Cultivating Play and Rest Letting Go of Exhaustion as a Status Symbol and Productivity as Self Worth 8 Cultivating Calm and Stillness Letting Go of Anxiety as a Lifestyl 9 Cultivating Meaningful Work Letting Go of Self Doubt and Supposed To 10 Cultivating Laughter Song and Dance Letting Go of Being Cool and Always in Control My Favorite Guidepost I loved the way Brown paired a positive powerful quality with its counter negative quality that needed to be released Many of the connections I d never thought of as being in opposition or a hindrance For example as a designer I d never thought that Cultivating Creativity required the letting go of Comparison and yet my most crippled creative blocked periods were exactly when I was comparing myself to someone else or comparing myself to a false set of expectations set in my head On the contrary when I recount my times of creative lucidity I was mentally free to create no rules no standards just pure joy and connection These are the times when I ve designed spot on masterpieces in a matter of just a few minutes versus the times I labored and stressed out over a pretty good piece of work D I G Deep To anchor in the new concepts each guidepost was accompanied with practical ways to apply the concepts to your life To this end Brown creates is her DIG methodology In her pre crisis school of thought digging deeper was her way of creating more doing more and forcing her way through situations Dig deeper and it will all work out right Yes and no Yes some things were taken care of but she was left more and more tired more and more drained Digging deeper in this sense was highly depleting On the other hand her new DIG methodology is about getting things done while rejuvenating and generating both energy and results DIG stands for Get Deliberate Get Inspired and Get Going Your Friends Helpful or Hurtful Another distinction I found particularly useful is Brown s breakdown of which friends can help build you up or tap into and trigger a shame spiral that will send you down the wrong path She outlines six specific friend types only one of which can truly help us when we fall down into that shame spiral It s not the our friends don t care she points out but that they may not have the tools or wherewithal to offer the kind of support that will dissipate the negativity we re feeling There are times in the past where I ve shared sadness or pain with a friend only to have their response go horribly awry and make me feel worse Brown
