Personal Saboteurs: The Judge (Your Inner Critic)

Podcast Episode

We’re kicking off a 4 episode series dedicated to the way we sabotage ourselves, and really try to understand what these trigger points are and how we can work around them. At the end of the day, we are humans, and while we can’t control everything, we can take steps to engineer our successes and feel more confident in our own lives.  Stephanie and Whitney discuss the steps you can take to mitigate self sabotaging behaviors. They outline ways you can identify your own saboteurs and share a quiz you can take to find out how to identify self sabotaging behaviors. In this episode, we cover saboteur #1: the “Judge ” – that inner critic that thinks it’s pushing you to do better when in reality it’s only making you miserable.

  • The first step to mitigating self sabotaging behaviors is to identify what those behaviors are through positive intelligence [1:33]
  • Self criticism and judgement doesn’t make you a better person [3:10]
  • The most pervasive Judge is conditional judgment [4:40]
