*How To Avoid The Inner Critic*
How often have you envisioned a new idea, project or goal but ended up in "inertia-land" even before you've begun?
Inertia - you know - that weird sensation of feeling like you've stepped in mud up to your ankles : - )
Let's take a look at the definition of inertia for a moment...
According to Webster's dictionary, inertia means: Resistance or disinclination to motion, action, or change: the inertia of an entrenched bureaucracy.
sluggishness, The tendency of a body to resist acceleration Hmmm, do we notice a pattern here by chance?
Resistance pops up both times.
So what do we make of this?
Looking at the definition of resistance gives us:
1. The act or an instance of resisting or the capacity to resist.
2. A force that tends to oppose or retard motion. Now we're beginning to understand the reason for the sluggishness - but what's doing the resisting?
The ego mind - the part that's been conditioned by society, media, family, government, "corporate cults" and any other "system" that aims to hold you in a trance of following what they think is right for you.
So how do you avoid this resistance of the ego? First, you need to become fully aware of what your thinking and feeling. Second, you need to determine what's really important in your life. Is it your job, your family, money, etc.?
Hint: If you're focusing on any external desire, the ego's got control over you. (money, power, status, etc)
The KEY is to tune into what your Spirit is saying - to listen to it and honor it.
Example: If you're feeling sluggish at work and you know you can't stand your job, you may need a change of scenery.
Other possibility - if you're not facing an inner issue that's causing the resistance, the real solution is to come to terms with it (and free the "stuck" energy that's been causing the issue to begin with.)
Here's the "Essence" of how to avoid the Inner Critic starting today...
Become fully alive and... (yes you guessed it), really
and allow the "kid-like" energy in you to come put and play. Be outrageous today in your own way.
Take one step today that you've never taken before. The moment you do, you'll begin to free the inertia that holds back your Life's Dreams from becoming real.
Your Life's Dreams are sacred my friend.
We're counting on you to LIVE them and share them with the rest of us...
You've got some cool things to do today, we look forward to hearing your successes (and even if you happen to stumble, no problem, so do we occasionally : - )
Today's the day my friend, to be the real YOU
in all your glory...
And So It Is...
