Chapter 2. Unmuddle Your Mindset > Notice How Your Critic Sabotages You

Notice How Your Critic Sabotages You

The Critic in your mind whispers to you during introductions. Just when the person you're talking with is saying his name, the Critic says, "You never can remember people's names." Sure enough, while the Critic is whispering at you, the other person's name is blotted out.

The Critic mutters when there is a silence in the middle of a conversation. In your head, the Critic says, "You never can think of anything to talk about." Because you're listening to the Critic, guess what . . . it's a self-fulfilling prophecy; you aren't able to think of anything to say.
