Tell the pessimistic jury that presides inside your head to just stop talking

When was the last time you heard yourself using berating language or statements? You know the type of thing: “You’ll not good enough”, “You can’t do this”, or “Your nose is too big”. Here’s 5 ways that you can confront and silence your inner critic.

“Pay no attention to what the critics say. A statue has never been erected in honor of a critic!” Jean Sibelius

    Hi Kevin,
    A good video about limiting the effects of the inner wicked voice and good to be back on the trails with you after my time with your Udemy Course. I must say that I enjoy your walking videos better!

    I am now into my 4th month and almost all the cravings have gone and I am even sleeping through the night. I am very much aware of ‘gossip’ in conversations with my work colleagues and I now am finding the negative energy contained in gossip very offensive and difficult to live with.
    I often find that my mind is connecting every day experiences and perceptions with memories of circumstances and events where I have let people down or not behaved as well, as I would have liked to have behaved. My inner devil’s voice often uses these memories to remind me of my failures and inadequacies and I am aware that Ithis type of self-criticism has lead me to the use of alcohol as tool to stop this voice from making me depressed.
    Being selective about the people that I connect with is important for me at this time. I am to make a visit to my home town in UK and have a long weekend off from my work in Denmark. I will be meeting up with old friends and family and this will be a test of my resolve to learn how to socialise without alcohol. A good video and I look forward to watching it again.

      Hey Stephen,
      Glad you enjoyed the video. A lot of people like the walking videos, I can’t consistently replicate good quality audio or sound with them so I don’t think they’d get past the udemy standards crew. Maybe I’m selling the wrong thing? lol. take care, Kevin

    Hi Kevin
    Good video with some good advice – I’m new to this – having tried and failed many times I am just 2 weeks in and have found your website and videos really inspiring. Today esp as I’m due to go to a function on Sunday and the tips to shut up my inner voice are well needed!! Thank u
