💡 Being an entrepreneur can be incredibly stressful and isolating work. This makes it the perfect place for a critical voice (our inner critic) to creep in when we make mistakes, procrastinate on an item on our to-do list, or don’t meet our weekly goals.
That voice is what we call our “inner business critic.” Depending on how loud our inner critic is, some of us may not consciously realize how this manifests in our work.
However, this inner critic of ours can be tamed and nurtured by simply applying the following:
✅ Develop an awareness of our thoughts.
➡️ We get so used to hearing our own narrations that it’s easy to become oblivious to the messages that we’re sending ourselves. Pay attention to what we think about and recognize that just because we think something, doesn’t mean it’s true.
✅ Ask what advice would you give a friend.
➡️ If a friend were to express feelings of self-doubt, its unlikely many of us would say, “You can’t ever do anything right,” or “You’re so stupid. No one likes you.” Yet, we’re often quick to say those things to ourselves i.e. practicing what we preach to others is important in our lives.
