Often times we underestimate how deeply critical we can be of ourselves. Our critical inner voice is often birthed from adverse experiences to the degree in which we limit ourselves or undermine our potential. Self-criticism can take a toll on our thoughts and productivity. We must become more aware of what we speak into our lives. Words have power. Speak life, happiness and positivity. Take a deep breath, go easy on yourself and practice affirming who you are on a daily basis.
