The Difference Between Fear + Your Inner Critic and What to Do About Them EP#351

Jun 21, 2020


Tell me if this sounds familiar: You get all pumped up about a new love interest or an exciting new job opportunity and then BAM! All of a sudden you feel a sinking feeling in your belly and a barrage of commentary starts in your mind. What if he thinks I’m too high-maintenance? What if they think I’m under-qualified? What if her family hates me? What if they think I’m incompetent?

You know that mind vortex, amiright? This, my friend, is the lovely little dance between Fear and your Inner Critic: the hybrid of how you FEEL and what you are SAYING to yourself in your own mind. Much of the time they work very much in tandem, but there is a subtle difference.

Why does this matter? Because the more you can understand what negativity is happening in your mind and body, the more equipped you are to combat it… And overcome it. In this episode, I tease apart the differences between these two concepts and show you ways you can “catch” either one. The more you understand, the better you will be at choosing to listen to your powerful inner voice so you can actually find that soulmate or start that biz or go back and finish that degree. And feel damn good about it.

This pod explores:

  • The #1 phrase you must start listening for in order to operate from a place of confidence instead of fear
  • My favorite tool to distract yourself from catastrophic thinking so you can actually focus (and get) what you really want
  • How to know if your Inner Critic is more of a feeling or a voice or both and what to do with each of them
  • Two areas to focus on so you can jump from fearful and freaked-out to confident and courageous
