No doubt you will know what I mean when I talk about my inner critic. It is that ever present voice in my head that tells me I should …
- do better
- say or not say something
- lose weight and exercise more
- work harder
- achieve more
- be happier
- help others more
- and so forth
I am aware of my inner critic some of the time and at other times it has full rein.
This is where Donal Trump plays a role! I dreamt last night that I was working for him and no matter what I did it wasn’t good enough. I was nearly fired every time I encoutered him in my daily work. When I reflected on my dream this morning I interpreted it to mean that my inner critic has a lot of Mr Trump’s characteristics. I am basing this on his reality TV show The Apprentice.
So now I will have no hesitation in naming this inner critic, Donald, and showing him the door and saying ” You are fired!”
