Too many leaders let their inner critic lead the way.
The voice in their head that points out everything that’s wrong with them, focuses on every mistake and confirms that they’re not good enough.
The one who constantly worries about what people think of them.
The one who says what they want is not available to them.
As a result, people are constantly overthinking and doubting themselves. Or when the worry gets to be too much, they end up not taking action on what really matters.
Why pay attention?
Anytime you are doing something new and out of your comfort zone, you will likely second guess yourself, and the imposter syndrome will seep in.
All the fears, worries and doubts can stop you cold in your tracks.
But -- when you can turn down the volume on your inner critic and what everyone else expects of you, and make your choices in deeper alignment with your values, priorities and intuition within you -- those fears and worries won’t matter.
So the real transformation and shift come when you can learn to let go of your inner critic.
This week I am sharing a video on letting go of the inner critic to get back your confidence AND time (I explain what I mean in the video).
I keep it real by sharing my own struggle with my inner critic and what you can do so you can feel more confident, free up time and energy (you have no idea how it's costing you now letting the inner critic drive) and shine in a whole new way.
Instead of sacrificing your family / personal life or your career to free up time and energy, let’s sacrifice the doubts, worry and your inner critic from leading the way.
All my best!
