Tame Your Inner Critic Before It Ruins Your Business

If you gave your inner genius as much credence as your inner critic,
you would be light years ahead of where you now stand. — Alan Cohen

Reflect. Change. Grow.

I have been on a deep dive with understanding the nature of thought and it’s implication for all people but mostly professionals since that’s who I work with the most.

I was talking with a friend about some earlier training and work I had done with Voice Dialogue and the Psychology of Selves.

In the psychology of selves understanding we all have these different personas or identities that get born within our psyche and can often interfere with what we’re trying to get done in life.

Meet The Inner Critic

There is one particular known as the Inner Critic.

As I have been sitting with my new understanding of how the mind works what I am seeing is fascinating.

Our personas or identities are no more than a cluster of habitual thought patterns that have clotted together making people highly susceptible to a stroke of misfortune.

So, I wanted to take a moment and expose this villain that is responsible for eroding peoples self-worth and self-esteem.

I’ll be brief.

The inner critic is simply a sub-personality and gets born within all of us.

In order for the critic to remain alive within us there must be thought.

Sub-personalities are no more than a cluster of habitual thoughts that have become fixated, creating an illusionary persona of being something real and formidable to deal with.

The Inner Critic is a voice within each of us that criticizes us mercilessly. It is relentless in it’s ability to spot all of our short comings faster than the speed of light.

The Inner Critic is what feeds our insecure thoughts.

The Inner Critic takes it upon itself a 24/7 job of examining and policing our every thought, feeling, and attitude.

It is also keeping a close eye on how well we are doing, while also keeping  a close eye on what everyone else is doing so that it can let you know in no uncertain terms how well you’re doing.

The Inner critic is the source of many of my coaching clients difficulties when it come to both growing their business and even working with a coach.

The Critic will have you second guessing in your ability to learn, grow and change and will also attack you for even considering wanting to reach out for help.

You must learn how to tame your inner critic or it will rob you of the life you where born to live.

Key Points

Here are few things to keep in mind.

    1. The inner critic is not real
    2. As you wake up to the nature of your inner critic you will stop entertaining it.
    3. The more you wake up to the fact the you are living in a world of thought the more freedom and joy you will experience.
    4. Remember you don’t have to be afraid of thought.

For my clients who have woken up to the nature of thought they are beginning  to notice their ability to relax and enjoy life way more than they ever imaged was possible.

The Promise

People with just the slightest understanding of how your mind works and where your experience is coming from, allows people start to experience more clarity, direction and peace of mind.

Mastering the inner game of life and business is both rewarding and practical but easy to overlook.

The happiness, freedom, success and joy you are looking for is much more attainable then you might think.

Don’t let you inner critic get the best of you.

Fastest Way To Increase Productivity Is Employee Engagement

I was recently published in a Hubstaff article on my thoughts with regards to employee engagement. Here is what I said.

You can hire people’s hands, but you must win people’s heart.

In order to win people’s hearts, you must teach them that engagement is innate and already within them.

One of the biggest mistakes employers make is trying to maximize productivity on the backs and hands of their employees.

Of course, this is shortsighted.

Unfortunately, most experts of employee engagement offer prescriptive or strategic ways to manage and control employees to increase engagement.

Why is employee engagement such a hot topic?

It’s because employers are finally waking up to the fact that low morale is in direct proportion with the employee’s lack of engagement.

And, we all know poor morale is not good for the bottom line.

Here’s the secret when it comes to employee engagement.

Human beings are born to be engaged.

We have an innate ability to find value and meaning in whatever we throw ourselves into.

So, what gets in the way of this innate ability? Self-doubt, second-guessing, and excessive feelings of pressure to perform.

All the above could be summarized in the fact that the employee is drowning in troublesome thought.

The solution is helping the employee get out from underneath problematic thinking.

How Greg helps cultivate a productivity mindset

We work with individuals and teams helping them understand the essence underneath human capital via a transformational conversation delivered over the course of three-to-four days.

We teach people a new way to think about what really drives motivation, engagement, and success.

Our teachings are based on one simple truth about how the mind works, which leads to a vast array of powerful and positive changes.

This inside-out understanding of where people’s experience is coming from holds the key to a satisfying, successful, and inspiring work life.

For example, when we look at engagement from an outside-in approach it would look like the organization, management, or boss is responsible for the employees’ job satisfaction and feelings of engagement.

With an inside-out understanding, the employee takes 100% responsibility for where their moment-to-moment experience is coming from.

With just a little bit of understanding, the employee stops blaming and making excuses for work/life experiences.

When employees get out from underneath extraneous problematic thinking they are naturally more engaged.

Employees who make the link between engagement and enjoyment are obviously happier and more productive employees.

Who is Greg Clowminzer?

An Interview with San Diego Voyager

Today we’d like to introduce you to Greg Clowminzer.

Greg, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.

I was a stressed-out young professional who was disillusioned with my career path and lifestyle back in the day. I was on a fast track at the time and became a partner and vice president of a commercial investment real estate company specializing in sales and acquisition of multi-family properties. I was very active in the community and held several leadership positions at both a local and state level.

The good news is I was making a decent living which afforded me to invest in myself. As I begin learning about myself and what made me tick and I started to get really excited about what I was learning and couldn’t wait to share it with others. Although I was quite shocked that others didn’t share my same enthusiasm for my new understandings. Read more

Clarity Of Mind The Key To High Performance

Most people would agree that clarity of mind is a good thing.

Yet those very same people innocently are involved with stirring up the bee hive of excessive thought.

Although people see clarity of mind as a helpful approach to any life encounter, it’s usually the last place they focus on to solve recurring problems, challenges and issues.

I had this really cool experience this week when going though my morning routine.

I was in the bathroom getting ready for my day when I noticed of how quiet everything seemed to be.

And then I realized it wasn’t quiet out there but my mind had settled to an even deeper level of quiet.   Read more
