WEBVTT 1 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:14.560 Good Day, my friends welcome to a moment with Moge. Thank you so much for 2 00:00:14.600 --> 00:00:19.840 downloading the show, I'm feeling pretty cheery today, because I get a 3 00:00:19.980 --> 00:00:25.700 chance to have a moment with you, I hope, you're having a great day and 4 00:00:25.740 --> 00:00:30.460 that you were able to find the gift in the situation. Yesterday, 5 00:00:31.940 --> 00:00:36.920 Louise Hey joins us to day on Speaker's Corner and Louise tells us 6 00:00:38.000 --> 00:00:43.340 remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn't worked. 7 00:00:44.000 --> 00:00:47.800 Try Approving of yourself and see what happens. 8 00:00:49.200 --> 00:00:56.340 My friend we talked last week about criticism, burses feedback, 9 00:00:57.400 --> 00:00:58.580 so feed back 10 00:00:59.760 --> 00:01:06.560 can help us learn from our mistakes and learn our weaknesses, because feedback 11 00:01:07.060 --> 00:01:14.000 is all about improvement, but sometimes we can take this too far and it becomes 12 00:01:14.240 --> 00:01:20.020 self criticism which prevents our growth by inhibiting us from taking 13 00:01:20.160 --> 00:01:26.720 risks. It stops us from believing in ourselves in our abilities. Remember 14 00:01:27.340 --> 00:01:34.560 feedback is about the solution, but criticism is about the problem and we 15 00:01:34.620 --> 00:01:40.920 know that where our thoughts go is where focus goes. So, let's start 16 00:01:41.160 --> 00:01:44.560 working on having a little self compassion 17 00:01:45.740 --> 00:01:51.400 and let's be kind and forgiving to ourselves. We have to accept that we're 18 00:01:51.500 --> 00:01:52.340 not perfect 19 00:01:53.360 --> 00:01:57.140 and that we have limitations and that we're not always 20 00:01:58.580 --> 00:02:05.940 at the top of our game. The first step encountering or inner critic is to 21 00:02:06.040 --> 00:02:06.940 recognize 22 00:02:07.980 --> 00:02:12.320 when the inner critic is doing the talking in our heads 23 00:02:13.420 --> 00:02:17.740 and remember the inner critic. Isn't you, 24 00:02:18.940 --> 00:02:24.300 the inner critic is part of the resistance and you don't have to 25 00:02:24.340 --> 00:02:26.520 believe what it says 26 00:02:27.660 --> 00:02:34.620 at first, it's easier to notice when the inner critic is done talk, but for 27 00:02:34.660 --> 00:02:40.960 us to be effective in silencing the air critic, we have to catch it at the 28 00:02:41.000 --> 00:02:41.620 beginning 29 00:02:42.740 --> 00:02:43.880 before it starts. 30 00:02:45.000 --> 00:02:49.300 We all have that negative tape that runs in her head, and you know what it 31 00:02:49.320 --> 00:02:51.700 is, and you know when it starts 32 00:02:52.860 --> 00:02:58.680 every negative thing. The inner critic tells you you can turn into something 33 00:02:58.900 --> 00:03:04.800 positive and that's how we shut the inner critic up. 34 00:03:05.920 --> 00:03:09.300 Carpe Momento, my friend I'll talk to you to Morrow
