That Voice in Your Head is a D*ck.
My friends, family and colleagues;
‘You’ll be brilliant at that. I know that you will do it, I have absolute faith in you. Knowing you as I do, I know you will achieve everything that you have said that you will achieve’.
The voice in my head;
‘You can’t do it, no one will hire you, what do you know about anything? You’re going to fail!!’
I had a coaching call with my own coach yesterday and it made me realise that the voice in my head is a real d*ck.
I have been absolutely purposeful about the people that I keep in my life. I have set boundaries to ensure that I don’t hang around with negative people who kill my vibe. So why is it that I let that voice in my head continually nag at me telling me that I’m not good enough, that I’m going to fail and that I can’t do what I’ve set out to do?
We get so accustomed to living with that voice that we barely notice it’s there. We just let it keep on nagging at us, completely unchecked.
Well, I’m not going to do that anymore. I’m calling bullsh*t on that voice. Each time it tells me that I can’t do something, I’m going to thank it and refer it back to all the times that I have succeeded. All the times that my grit, determination and can do attitude have won over the instinct to quit. All of the times that I’ve proved other doubters wrong and all of the times that I have failed, but learned.
Half the battle with this is awareness; once you become aware of the thought pattern, you can arrest it mid-flow and change course. I’m not saying that it’s going to be easy but it’s like leading your mind back to your breath during meditation ‘each time you do so, that’s a rep’ (ty LDLB). I’m looking forward to strengthening this muscle.
