Episode #40: Part 1: The Evolution of the Inner Critic and How to Silence It

 You all know the inner critic, it's that internal judgmental voice in our heads and depending on how you have it trained you can experience it in 3 different ways:

  • Judgement towards yourself
  • Judgement towards others
  • Judgement towards circumstances

Everyone has an inner critic, even the person that appears to be the most confident. Why? Because the human brain evolved to have an inner critic, it's part of our primitive brains wiring for survival.

However, as you grow it becomes your worst enemy, and one of the biggest things that stands in the way of your success, your happiness, your inner peace.

Listen in and learn:

  • All about the evolution of the inner critic
  • How to notice when your inner critic is showing up
  • Techniques to silence your inner critic
