So we all have this voice in our head that talks to us. I envision mine as a little koala bear, named George. But I call him a Gremlin. He can be the most frustrating and obnoxious voice you can imagine. This is when I love him best, asleep.
So what am I talking about? You know that voice that tells you, "you can't do this", "you'll never be successful", "you are so stupid" and doesn't the list go on and on. Well George has really gotten in my head the last month and been very successful. It is time to get away from him and start thinking positively.
So how do I do this...
1. Make a list of all my accomplishments. Things I am proud of, both personal and business related. They can be simple things. I can have this to review when that Gremlin is active.2. Clear my head, go for a walk, run, hike. Enjoy nature. Get those creative juices flowing. Even listening to music can clear the old head.
3. Do something that makes me happy. Something you don't get the opportunity to do often.
4. Meet a friend or friends for lunch. This can really boost your confidence and put that Gremlin to sleep.
These are pretty simple tips for overcoming your gremlin. Sometimes they help me and other times unfortunately they don't. We all have those negative thoughts, how do you overcome those negative thoughts?
