Have you ever found yourself really excited about something, only to eventually talk yourself out of doing it with questions like 'who the hell are you?' 'Why would you think about doing something like this?' Or a statement of 'you're crazy to believe this will work.'
The good news is that you're not crazy. We all have that inner voice talking us out of greatness and doing amazing things. There's just a difference between people who succeed and those who don't. Those who succeed have learned to turn off the voice.
Coach Jennie, has named this inner voice 'Hilda', and she's been using her with her coaching clients for years. She has now published a book that talks about the four types of Hilda-isms that we seem to tell ourselves the most.
