Amazon Hot New Release! Silence the Voice of Self Doubt While it’s easy to believe that the main barriers to being more productive, generating and developing ideas, and doing our best work are external (how many times have you vented to a coworker about “hitting a wall?”), the truth is that these frustrating blocks are most often in our own heads. What is the entity responsible for this? The Inner Critic. The Inner Critic is relentless, driving us toward perfectionism and fanning the flames of self doubt, self-sabotage, and self criticism while dousing the sparks of creative ideas before they have a chance to develop. It encourages rationalization to help us feel better about snuffing out these sparks and keeps us believing that it’s saving us from rejection, judgment, and failure. Worst of all, it makes us think all of this is our own idea. How do we break free of something that feels like it’s a natural part of who we are? Denise Jacobs, Speaker, Author and Chief Creativity Evangelist of The Creative Dose, who speaks at web conferences and consults with tech companies worldwide, maps a way out in her latest work, Banish Your Inner Critic. This book is your manual and toolkit to help you not only reclaim your creativity and productivity, but bump it up to extreme productivity, clearing a path for you to find your zone more often – and stay in it longer. Jacobs’ guidebook will provide instant relief and lasting insight, showing you how to: • Identify and quiet the voice of self-sabotage in your head • Master three power practices to transform how you relate to yourself and your creativity forever • Overcome the fear of not knowing enough or not being original enough • Free yourself from comparisons, overwhelm, and self-criticism • Transform your self-talk into a tool for success • Generate more ideas than ever before • Embrace your expertise and share your brilliance with the world Calling on neuroscience, psychology, mindfulness principles, and self-compassion research, deftly blended with personal storytelling, Jacobs presents approachable and immediately applicable techniques for putting your Inner Critic in its place. Banish Your Inner Critic will help you make your creative process more fluid and develop practices to cultivate innovation. When your next creative idea sparks into being, you will be ready to nurture it into a dazzling light of success. Banish your Inner Critic to start doing your best work, achieving excellence, and contributing meaningfully to the world!

Incorporating anecdotes from the author’s many nature retreats, Buddhist wisdom and teachings, important nature writings by others, and nature itself, the book invites readers to participate in, not just observe, nature; develop a loving connection with the earth as a form of environmental activism; decrease urban alienation through experiencing nature; embody nature’s peaceful presence; and connect with ancient spiritual wisdom through nature meditations.

Can't stop the critical voice in your head? Constantly bombarded with negative thoughts? From an early age, many of us have this critical voice in our head which we called the inner critic. It's the voice that tells us: You are not good enough. You will never amount to anything. You are a bad person. You don't deserve love. No one loves you. We have tried many different exercises and techniques to get rid of it, but nothing seems to be effective. These intrusive thoughts keep popping up whenever they want. Instead of overcoming our self-criticism, we make the inner critic our enemy and blame ourselves for having such self-loathing thoughts. Some of us even feel that beating ourselves up is good for us and helps to keep our behavior in check. But how is that working for you? How can we stop our self-criticism? The truth is we can't control most of our thoughts. Our unhealthy, habitual ways of thinking are the result of past conditioning, and they have become a part of our protective mechanism. It's not easy to change this system overnight. Instead of fixing our thoughts and silencing our inner critic, what we can do is to change our unconscious reactions to self-criticism. Our inner critic might have judged us negatively and told us lies about ourselves, but we don't have to believe everything that it says. The reason why we feel so hurt from our negative self-talk is not that the words are hurtful. It's because we trust these harsh criticisms are true!
