Chapter 2. Unmuddle Your Mindset > Convert Your Critic Into Your Coach

Convert Your Critic Into Your Coach

Who writes all the Critic's scripts? You do! Taking responsibility for what the voice in your head is saying isn't easy. It's been with you for a long time. It's always there. It's so automatic that it seems to be firmly entrenched. You forget to listen for it, but it slips in. It's hard to be conscious of the Critic. And you may have gotten so used to letting the Critic beat up on you that you've started to believe that what it says is true.

There are many theories about why the Critic appears and where the critical voice in your head comes from. Often, people remember that their parents or teachers put a label on them. "He's shy," they might have said. Or, "She's clumsy." Even well-meaning adults can give children plenty of critical comments that are replayed through the years by their Critics.
