Mumbo Jumbo




“Self-talk reflects your innermost feelings.”
Asa Don Brown

Your attitude directly determines how well you live your life. In reality it never pays to get discouraged. Staying mindful and making positivity a way of life helps you restore your belief in yourself, no matter where you are.


Yet unfortunately each of us have our very own special saboteur. The saboteur is the voice in your head that says, “You are not good enough.” “Who do you think you are?” “If you take this new job, everyone will find out what a fraud you are.” The saboteur’s job is to “protect” you from taking risks and making changes. 


We need to distinguish between our voice and the saboteur’s mumbo-jumbo. Notice how the inner critic drives the choices and decisions you make.


Begin by noticing the negative voices playing in your head. Notice the times when they crop up. Recognise that the voices are not you and they are not true. Learning to separate your own voice from that of the saboteur is a powerful and life changing tool.


Remember you need to be your own cheer leader not your own worst enemy.


”Turn down the volume of your negative inner voice and create a nurturing inner voice to take it’s place. When you make a mistake, forgive yourself, learn from it, and move on instead of obsessing about it. Equally important, don’t allow anyone else to dwell on your mistakes or shortcomings or to expect perfection from you.”
