The Committee in Your Head

You cannot watch, listen to, or read the news for long without being bombarded with bad news, gloomy forecasts and general negativity. Bad news sells.

Let too much of it into your head, and your performance will suffer. I believe that in life we get the ‘negatives’ for nothing. We must work for the positive. We must consciously seek out the good, the positive, focusing on what we can do instead of worrying about things that are beyond our control, much of which will never happen.

And then there’s those little ‘voices’ in our head, the voices that tell you that you won’t amount to much, that you can’t do something, that real estate is too hard. Those negative voices are the committee in your head.

You may have heard the saying, “Feelings aren’t facts”. This is never truer than when it comes to listening to the ‘committee’.

You’re not stupid, you’re not a failure, despite what the ‘committee’ tells you. Don’t fall for it.

Understand that we all have our own committees and you can bet that yours is no more negative than anybody else’s. Replace the committee’s negativity with positive Affirmations. Change the inner dialogue.

When you think about it, why shouldn’t YOU succeed? Other people have succeeded, so why not you?

If you want an antidote to the committee’s negativity, develop a bigger picture of what you want from your career and your life. Set goals and write positive Affirmations that will change your thinking over time. Goals and Affirmations will help to quiet the committee.

Focus on the positive. Let the committee find another audience.
