Taking the ‘I’ Out of Inner Critic

Here's a superfast way to disconnect from your inner critic...

Even though our inner critic can have a profound and lasting impact on us, it can often be quick and easy to break through its bonds…. …if you know what to do.

There are many tools and practices that I use with my clients for this purpose, this is just one of them.

Today’s Wisdom Widget focuses on taking the ‘I’ out of the inner critic.

When we can begin to see the inner critic as its own character or characters, then we can begin to create some separation from you as an ambitious, successful woman and it.  Because your inner critic’s role is not aligned with your vision for yourself if you have any goals or dreams in mind.

Simply put, your inner critic is a strategy of your safety instinct, to keep you in your comfort zone.

You may wish to have a pen and something to write on nearby to take notes about your experience once it is complete.

Journal Prompts

  1. What is something that your inner critic often says to you?
  2.  What shifts do you notice with that new way of wording it?  Go ahead and note down what feels different.
  3.  When else could you use this rephrasing?
  4.  What could that allow you to do?

Remember to share your experience of the practice and/or your insights below.

About Lorraine

Lorraine’s 15+ years of experience as a Certified Professional Coach plus her background as a radiofrequency engineer has helped her to view personal transformation with an engineering eye – isolating components and creating bespoke formulas or recipes for her clients.  It has also helped her to identify patterns and trends that can be applied to larger groups without losing the essence of your uniqueness.

The results are difficult to quantify as my clients shake off generations of inner critics, shoulds, musts and what it has meant to be a woman which leaves them free to step into a whole new realm of playing bigger in life, career and business.
