Descrizione

When you hear putdowns like “You’re not good enough” or “You’ll fail,” it’s difficult to imagine that your inner critic has been slaving away, nonstop, for most of your life . . . with your best interests in mind. What? Your inner critic is misguided, but its intentions are so pure and positive that most people eventually tear up with gratitude once they fully understand this puzzled part of themselves.

You gave birth to your inner critic in early childhood. You very cleverly (but unconsciously) designed it as a protective shield to avoid adult disapproval. Your inner guardian held you back with messages like, “You aren’t powerful enough to do what you want.” Children have many limitations. Even though you’ve grown up, your confused, strong-willed inner critic has no understanding of your true capabilities.

Today, your negative voice continues to hold you back with a barrage of dis-empowering comments and emotions, from shame and anxiety to self-sabotage. Until you re-educate this extremely powerful part of yourself, your internal censor will continue its struggle to protect you from harm, disappointment, disapproval and failure by putting you down and making you feel unworthy, helpless, fatigued, possibly even depressed. Your inner critic needs a new job description and a new software program.

Readers are relieved when they discover their inner critic is not really their enemy. They are amazed to learn that the more we try to banish our inner critics, the stronger they become. Readers gain freedom when they discover that our inner critics want to help us and they were originally designed to keep us out of trouble. It’s very empowering to learn that you can transmute what you originally created.

After you explore the myths about your inner critic and you comprehend its potentially positive power, you can easily and rapidly transform your internal censor into a loving, supportive internal coach. You’ll love becoming the strong, confident person you’ve always been destined to become.

With a new job description, your inner critic will deliver gift after gift to you.
• You’ll discover your hidden strengths, so you’ll be confident being Your Authentic Self.
• You’ll be motivated by intelligent optimism, productive insights and an intuitive edge.
• You’ll feel immune to unfair criticism by other people.
• Inner peace will soothe you, including when you face new challenges.
• You’ll radiate confidence when you promote your abilities and accomplishments.
• Your new level of courage will help you gain the recognition, respect and appreciation you deserve.
• Taking intelligent risks will become a joyful, spontaneous process instead of creating anxiety.
• You’ll thrive when you enjoy rewarding relationships in which your needs are met.

Are you ready to give your inner critic a new job description?

The innovative, freedom-producing approach you’re about to benefit from emerged from years of work with hundreds of coaching clients who were facing the same challenges you’re struggling with. Like you, they were haunted by critical self-talk. Negative comments from the external world mirrored the putdowns of their inner critic. Many of these clients struggled to please other people instead of being their Authentic Self. Self-promotion was difficult when they were anxious or their confidence waned. It was often frightening to take a healthy risk.

Are you ready to calm the crippling voice of your inner critic? Take advantage of a proven program tested by hundreds of Dr. Doris’ clients before she was interviewed on CNN, The Today Show and NPR. You’ll gain special value from the illustrations and the workbook that are part of the book.

14. Deep down inside, I may be a courageous person, but my inner critic zaps my courage to change. (T/F)

15. I often try to please people instead of expressing my true opinions or being My Authentic Self. (T/F)

16. When someone makes a critical comment, instead of taking time to reflect on the accuracy of what they say, I assume the criticism is valid and feel bad about myself. (T/F)

17. I sometimes assume people are being critical of me and later I discover they weren’t. (T/F)
