Look in the mirror. It’s you.

If you had a friend that talked to you the way you talk to yourself, you would avoid them at any cost. If you had an employee that constantly spreads negativity and always expects the worst, you would fire them asap.

Children learn many languages in school. It would be much more important to learn positive self-talk. Instead, we live our lives constantly barraged by this inner jerk, limiting our ability to believe in ourselves and our own abilities, reaching our potential.

If you want to stop your worst enemy, this book might be helpful.

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts. Therefore, guard accordingly, and take that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature” — Marcus Aurelius

Don’t listen to the pest inside your head. Remember: you got this.
