Don't believe the Mean Voice!
Do you have a mean voice in your head that tells you: you are not good enough? I've got one! You too? Your inner mean voice is not so unique. It talks down to everyone!
This week I learned once again how strong the Mean Voice is!
I asked my Personal Branding students to share their beliefs. An authentic personal brand has to be rooted in self-love in order for it to really work! It’s not just a shiny pretty layer but an authentic expression of who you Really Are. Ignoring the mean voice doesn't work.
It starts hissing in your ear when you get ready to ask someone to work with and it says: Don't ask for money, who is going to pay you? Or "Are you going to wear that dress for the photoshoot? You're way too fat!" or "Don't tell anyone about your your psychic powers, they will make so much fun of you! And anyway, you're nothing special"".
Oh My! The absolutely horrible things we believe about ourselves.
While the members shared what they really believed, I read all their words out loud:
I'm too fat, too old, too young, I will never really make it, too shallow, too stupid, too highly educated, too little education, nobody will take me seriously . . .
Tears were streaming down my face - I wasn't able to stop them -.
There are not enough ‘happy-happy-joy-joy’ thoughts in the world that can push out those beliefs - when you don't understand that they are just there to keep you small.
My clients were lucky enough to have business shaman Marian Nielsen Joos do a shamanic healing for them. I watched fear dissolve, spirit animals appear, birds start singing. And the best of all : beliefs became just what they are: ‘a believe’ instead of truth set in stone.
I’m so happy I ditched the conventional marketing and branding path for the weird and wonderful road!
I'm telling you this because if you have a mean voice I urge to understand that it's NOT you. It's an asshole bullshit voice! Don't obey the mean voice. Make fun of it (not of yourself! only of the voice) do EFT, hire help, breathe, refuse to believe it! Tell it: "Bloody move out of my head". Do on do it now: put your hand on your heart and listen to your heart instead!
You Rock! and don't let that stupid mean voice tell you otherwise!
Write it, sing it, dance it: "I am super duper awesome, I am lovable, I am beautiful, I am me!"
