How to Silence Your Inner Negative Nelly (or Nelson)

We all struggle with our inner critic — the voice that says we’re not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough.

If I listen closely I can hear my inner Negative Nelly now. She’s saying, “Don’t make a fool of yourself!”

This inner voice USED to stop me from experiencing new adventures and opportunities to grow.

But not anymore.

Now, when Nelly pops up, I fight back with a powerful process from psychologist Lynn Newman. I ask myself 3 questions:

Question 1: So what?

When I want to tell Nelly, “Just because you said it, doesn’t make it true!”  

Question 2: Who cares?

When I want to tell Nelly “Your criticism doesn’t mean a thing!”

Question 3: Why not?

When I want to tell Nelly ” Hey, I CAN do this. I don’t care what you think!”

YOU are in charge of your life. Not your inner Negative Nelly… or Nelson.
