Very often our inner critic serves as a warning sign that danger is approaching. That danger is most likely to be you venturing outside of your comfort zone. But as we’ve established many times before, all the good stuff is outside of your comfort zone. Your brain wants to protect you from the potential criticism you may face when you step outside your comfort zone so your inner critic tries to talk you out of going after the things you want. Basically, it makes it really difficult and complicated for you to go after your goals.
However, by having a word with yourself on a regular basis and telling yourself that you can do this and you’ve totally got this, filling your mind with far more positive thoughts then you can start to turn down the volume of your inner critic and eventually drown out all their negativity. You probably won’t silence them completely but you’ll figure out your own way of making them be quiet.
