Hello friends! Do you remember those goals you set back in January? Have you taken small steps forward to be on the path to achieve those pursuits and dreams? If you haven’t started moving forward, what do you think is the reason?
After speaking to countless AMAZING women I noticed a few things. First, they were smart, capable, and interesting. They had dreams and passions in every area of their lives, from wanting to move to a new country to starting a new business to speaking up in meetings to learning a sport.
BUT, there was ONE thing that was common in each of these remarkable women.
They felt something was holding them back. Something that made them doubt themselves. Something that made them think of every potential pitfall that could happen.
That “something” was their inner critic. The voice of self-doubt that says “You’re not good enough,” “You WILL fail,” “Don’t bother trying.”
This inner critic is not a soft spoken, kind voice merely giving words of caution to keep you safe. It is instead a loud, cruel bellowing voice determined to keep you confined to NEVER move an inch past your comfort zone.
As I continued to listen to these females, I knew I had to do something. Think of all the ideas, thoughts, businesses and talents that are going unnoticed because of this nagging inner critic.
