"Thriving along side our inner critic 👹. 📝 New Blog up now! Dustinwatten.com/blog
💮“You aren’t good enough” “You can’t do anything right” “Who are you trying to fool” “you are blowing it for your team right now!” – Who is that? Where do these thoughts come from? And what can we do, to be more mindful of our inner critic and allow us to be our creative, fluid and confident version of our-self?
💮Personally, it wasn’t that long ago that I subjected myself to everything the inner critic had to say about me. Every malicious, hostile, destructive and shameful thought stuck to me as if it was another layer of myself. Whether I was welcoming or not, he found a way to get his foot in the door, whether it was after a couple bad float serve receptions, a missed dig or an un-hittable set, his voice punctured me and left me deflated and dejected.
💮How could I be my best self once deflated, what if I started a match with a couple of bad plays, would it even be possible to continue with the level I had going into the match or was I destined to play with 70%, 60%, 50% of my physical level with my confidence and focus hijacked by this malicious voice inside my head?
💮I used to fear the confrontation, even playing ignorant when the whispers began to be audible but I come to welcomed the voice with mindfulness and compassion. I know it is an on-going battle, one that will presumably never end but I am prepared for the voice and I hope by sharing my methods, you too can continue to be the most authentic version of yourself through the ebbs and flows of life.
