Our inner voice is designed to protect us. It always has it’s eye out for the danger that may be lurking around every corner. It has it’s eye out to keep us from any kind of harm, embarrassment, pain, or set back.
The negative thing is that no one has an inner voice that is positive. No one’s internal voice say’s:
- you’re in really good shape
- you’re good looking
- you’re smart enough to do this
- people like dealing with you
- you’re the best
That’s why those things have to be audible. You must say these things out loud to drown out the inner voice whose well intent is to protect you but actual left unchecked becomes your worst enemy. Everyone knows this but decides it’s too corny or lame to do so they stew in their own negativity (letting their inner voice protect them).
So my challenge to you is to do it for them. Tell someone how talented they are. Tell someone you believe in them. Tell someone they look good. Tell someone you like spending time with them. Go ahead. Lower the volume of their inner voice.
