The INNER CRITIC:
---We can end up doing little of anything, because BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY - NO sense looking silly. If everything was a guaranteed success there would be no problem and we could laud it over the whole world showing how good we are. But, if we fail, we may look foolish in the eyes of the very people we have fooled or think we have fooled. We have our ever so precious reputation to think of so, it is easier to chalk things up to what’s the use? Nothing ventured, Nothing gained…but, nothing lost so, I can get back to my quiet desperation and indignation. I can now sit and enjoy the million and a half excuses I will make concerning why I will NOT pursue this.
---This is what the inner critic does. Your job is to have an idea of something that you’d like to do or would be a good idea to do AND the inner critic gets the fire wood, the kindling, lights the match and basically has you sit in a paralyzed state listening to hundreds or thousand of reasons and excuses why you should NEVER pursue this. If you allow him to feed this fire over and over…he will probably tell you that moving from this spot is NOT A GOOD IDEA, EITHER!
---Many people had parents that feel that GOOD PARENTING is about criticizing the child into seeing the errors of his way in hopes that he shapes up and acts in a way that the parent is more approving of. Please listen to the talks provided and be free of this negativity. Be Well!
