I just realized that I’ve been quite absent from here…. but I think I have a good reason.
I’ve been putting the finished touches on a new self-study program called Inner Critic to Inner Ally: The Beginner’s Guide.
For many years I worked with people facing major life changes, often in traumatic situations. For the past few years, my focus has shifted a little and now includes much more “performance improvement” — coaching and consulting to people who are doing well, but want to do better.
Why am I telling you this?
Because I’ve noticed that managing the little voice in our heads that say us “you can’t,” and “you’re not good enough,” or “don’t even try” is a fairly common challenge. It intrudes into our writing, running our businesses, setting goals, and spills over into our families. (You know, that “bad parent, guilty parent” voice?)
I realized that I had developed a collection of exercises and techniques that lots of people have been able to use to break up some of those mental roadblocks. And, it’s taking me longer than expected to create the product and the format.
NOTE: If I hadn’t sent her out to pick up lunch for the team, I’d insert a mean comment from my own Inner Bully here. (Today I’m calling her “Barbie.”)
Anyway, it’s time to get off my own back and get back to work. Take a look at the cover… and I’ll let you know when it’s ready. Whenever that is.
IT’S HERE NOW.
