As CHANGEMAKERS, we are lifetime learners who can be sabotaged by our own thoughts. It’s staggering how much chatter we tolerate that often derails our positive change making.

What ARE those voices in our head?

💡You know, the ones that shout “not good enough” and “do you really think you are ready for this”?

💡Do you ever hear “who do you think you are to do this”? or “Is this really your place to speak up like this”?

💡These voices create doubt in ourselves (despite being highly competent and qualified).

💡These voices sow seeds of anxiety and prompts us to avoid conflict and say yes to things that we don’t want.
💡These voices create anxiety when things are not go our way.
💡These insidious whisperings distract us from achieving our goals.
💡 As if that was not enough (excuse the pun), these inner thoughts prompt skepticism and cynicism.
So, for the love of all that is good, how do we get a grip on the inner chatter?
✔️ Glad you asked. Through my executive coaching and my own practice, I’ve discovered an amazing methodology of building mental fitness which re-centers me and quiets the inner thoughts.
✔️ Similar to building physical fitness, building mental fitness is a process to achieve a strong capacity for wellbeing – cultivating awareness of how we feel, think, and behave that positively impacts all aspects of our lives.
Mental fitness can be enhanced by developing the skills and practices to improve and sustain your state of wellbeing so you can perform at your best.
To become and grow as an effective leader, developing core resources and becoming aware of how you think, behave, and feel is central to the very essence of what it means to lead.
Does this sound like you?
