This is the second part of a special 2-part series of the podcast where we continue our deep dive into one of the most foundational principles of psychological strength. Specifically, the inner chatter of the committee in your mind.
What is the committee in your mind? It’s the set of inner voices that chatter on a near-constant basis and have something to say and a judgment about every situation you find yourself in. It’s the set of mental patterns you’ve developed over time that leads you to over-function, be self-critical, and ignore your own needs. It’s the set of voices that leads you to suffer unnecessarily.
Part of understanding critical thoughts and improving mental health is how we manage this internal monologue. Sometimes, this committee can help understand another person’s point of view, some typed of inner speech assists in problem-solving.
It’s time to recognize them, pay attention, and begin to disobey them.
During this first part of this series, we introduced you to a set of unhelpful committee members who show up involuntarily. These forms of inner speech all people experience can disrupt more helpful internal dialogue. If you missed that episode, you’ll want to go back and catch it.
Now, we’d like to walk you through a set of more helpful committee members. These are members who will not show up uninvited. Rather, they need more of a formal invitation to speak. However, if you can summon them to the conversation, you’ll find yourself in a much better, more confident, aligned position to move forward in the way you truly want to.
The [Helpful] Committee Members:
- The Coach
- The Wise Advisor
- The Asset
