Are you letting your inner critic steal your thunder? Is that negative critic always ruining your motivation to dream and make things happen? Our inner critic is our conscious mind that tells us that we are no good, don't deserve what we want, or can't accomplish what our heart is telling us we can. So often we let our inner critic stop us from accomplishing the things our heart has always hoped and dreamed for. So how do we get our inner critic to stop stealing our thunder? We begin by understanding that what our inner critic is saying is not always true. We only have to believe our inner critic if we want to. Our inner critic is based upon limited beliefs that were built up from our past traumas, environments and people we have surrounded ourselves with. Most times the thoughts coming from inside out mind are really just untrue beliefs that were formed from outside factors that have affected our thinking. We have the ability to quiet our inner critic by telling it we will not listen when it degrades us or talks to us negatively. We will only engage in our inner critic when it encourages us. So how do we get our inner critic to encourage us? We start having positive self-talk within our minds. Set positive intentions, and say them to yourself. We tell ourselves all the reason why we should follow our heart, and ignore all the reason why we shouldn't. The inner critic will not steal your thunder any longer, as long as you stick up to it and detach from it. Many people let years pass by and allow their inner critic talk them out of following their dream career or trying new things that could be life changing. Don't let your inner critic talk you out of being the confident happy person you have the ability to be. You can be whatever you heart tells you it can be. But, you have to tell your inner critic to stop making decisions for you, follow your heart instead and continue to make sure that critic disappears by constantly detaching from it.
