Hypercritical Personality

trap number three hypercritical. So hypercritical is a self doubt trap that a lot of us have where it can be triggered by past failure. Okay, um, this is typically where you've been wounded at something and then the fear of getting burned again or putting yourself out there again. It's so big that you argue against yourself. So you're the kind of person if you're not this kind of person, I guarantee maybe there's somebody in your life like this They got an excuse for everything is one way that this manifest itself, the way that it manifests itself for me is because I'm a trained lawyer. I lawyer against on idea. So I will be really smart about all the reasons why it's not gonna work now. Sometimes you know it isn't the right time. But if you're constantly arguing against yourself and you're just so sick of it, this is what being hypercritical if you if you focus on the reasons why you can't. So this is what I call obstacle thinking. You're the kind of person that's grown into spotting ...

the things that are wrong, spotting all the reasons why and then, like, literally just dig in on your position and what we want to turn you in is the kind of person that spots the opportunity that fixates not on what could go wrong, but on what might go right. Um, the thing about hypercritical like this kind of former self doubt hesitations busy nus up here. Hiding is shrinking, and it's a little bit quiet. It has a little bit. The stress is a little bit of an edge to it. Like there's there's something that feels like, uh like, it's tough.

Looking to build some more confidence and push through the imposter feeling I have trying to sell myself as a self taught artist. Happy to say I use the 54321 rule a lot and I didn’t know it. I call it my what have I got to loose rule. I also learned some new techniques and good “habits” to keep my day on track and prepare myself against any fear or anxiety I may encounter when powering through my day. A great motivator, Mel keeps it simple with advice and tips backed by proven scientific research . Highly recommend this
