Is there a little voice in your head that often says to you: “What a dumb person you are!” or “You won’t do it right, so why bother!” or “Either I get that new job, or I’ll be stuck in this one forever!” Your inner “Critic” is that voice – the one that is all-to-ready to berate, criticize, and demean you. If your “Critic” is not managed, it can rob you of feeling good about yourself. Strong self-esteem – the value and worth you put on yourself – is an attribute that enables you to succeed at work and in relationships. In order to have healthy self-esteem, it’s important to confront the “Critic” and change the language of that internal voice. There are many strategies that can help people develop healthy self-esteem.
