Today’s guest is Life Coach Julie McCoy. Teresa McQueen talks with Julie about how to silence our inner Saboteur – that little voice in our head that touts self-doubt and fear. Listen in as Julie provides some valuable insight into how to evict (or at least muzzle) that inner critic and reach your full potential in the year to come!
“The bigger the goal, the louder the [Saboteur] voice.”– Julie McCoy
Highlights From This Week’s Workplace Perspective:
- The inner critic can be a positive force for improvement, but the Saboteur’s voices is always going to try to trip us up.
- The main thing that characterizes the voice of the Saboteur [is that] the Saboteur is a liar.
- You’ll never win an argument with the Saboteur, but you have within you positive voices that can talk back and help silence the inner critic’s monologue.
Julie’s Tips for Employers and Employees
- Recognizing that the Saboteur is never going to fall silent is one of the first steps to turning down its volume.
- Confront the Saboteur head-on and identify its message. Once you identify the message you can figure out what parts are true and which parts are false. Work with what’s true and turn up the volume; lessening the impact of the Saboteur’s false message.
- Identify and work to bring forward the positive voices. Focus on the voice of positivity when the Saboteur raises its voice and tries to step to the front.
