here is an NLP strategy that is great to self coach to get over the voice inside your head.
Ask yourself –
“is it your voice?
Does it sound like the voice you have on the outside?
Does it perhaps sound like your mothers voice or someone you know?
What exactly does the voice say?”
now turn up the volume and make it really loud…
“is it coming from the left or the right?”
notice the feelings you are experiencing now.
now, move the voice away from you and off into the distance and turn the sound right down.
Ask yourself… “did I ever hear somebody talk that I totally disbelieved or mistrusted or lied?”
As you listen to the voice – slowly change the tone of the voice that voice of someone you absolutely mistrust and do not believe.
Now move the voice around to the back of your head and push it back so it is further and further behind you.
Now, repeat hearing that old voice inside your head and change the tone to the untrustworthy voice, move it behind your head and push the voice further and further away..
repeat this process quickly three more times.
Now imagine ducks flying overhead in spotted boxer shorts, and take a deep breath and exhale.
recall that old voice you no longer trust and notice the change, now…
