It is true that you are your best critic. That little voice in your head which is constantly on. Sure, many a time, it stops us from messing things up. But other times, it makes us question our worth. Thoughts like ‘What will people think?’, ‘Am I really good enough?’ pop out of nowhere. And that eventually makes us overthink and causes anxiety. Want to break this cycle?
Here Are A Few Examples
You focus on the negatives and tend to ignore anything good that’s going on. This makes you anxious which only makes you more negative. This simply pulls you in a vicious circle.
You think you know what others are thinking about you and it is mostly negative.
People tend to predict the future negatively and then act as though their fears are imminent.
You view people and events in terms of all-or-nothing. One mistake you do and you treat it as an epic failure.
Tips To Overcome This
In order to overcome this negative voice in your head, the ‘TrueSuccessTM Formula’ can be applied which includes the following.
Stress robs us of all our positive energy. The more stress, the more critical you become. In order to control these levels of stress, do something healthy and helpful, something you love.
Find a higher purpose in life. Instead of being worried about making a mistake in a presentation or someone that doesn’t like you. Set higher goals purpose for yourself, then making small errors is no big deal. This will curb your anxiety. It will help you put things into perspective, and instead of listening to your inner critic you will focus on a cause greater than yourself.
Spend some time with people who have a positive influence over you. Negative people simply increase your anxiety and the negative critic in you.
