When you let your inner critic run the show.

One of the things my inner critic tells me a lot is that I’m not good enough at anything.

It says things like,

  • I’m a good writer, but not good enough to land a feature on a really big publication.
  • I’m a good blogger, but not good enough to grow my following beyond a certain point.
  • I’m a good designer, but not enough to do it for a living. 
  • I’m a jack of all trades, master of none.
  • I’m smart, but I’m not smart enough to be considered a thought leader.
  • I was a good food blogger, but certainly not the best out there.
  • I’m really good at copying what I see, but couldn’t create something like that on my own.
  • I’m only good because I’ve been doing it for a long time.

It’s even gotten sneaky and said things like, I did good, but SHE did better.

So I thought I’d channel my best inner girlfriend and tell myself what SHE would say. Which is that I’m being ridiculous and am WAY better than I give myself credit for.

No ifs, ands, or buts about it.
