The Committee in Your Mind (Part 1)Aug 19, 2020
This is a special episode of the podcast. It’s actually the first part of a 2-part series we’re doing to 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 voices that chatter on a near-constant basis and have something to say and a judgement 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.
It’s time to recognize them and begin to disobey them.
During this first part of this series, we introduce you to a set of unhelpful committee members who show up involuntarily. They permeate nearly every moment of our lives, influencing our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
We’ll walk you through who each committee member is, how to recognize them, and at the end, we’ll walk you through some actionable steps to begin to quiet their voices and minimize their impact on you.
The [Unhelpful] Committee Members:
- The Inner Critic
- The Persecutor
- The Debbie Downer
- The Judge
- The Task-Master
- The Logistics Person
- The Martyr
- The Victim
- The People Pleaser
- The Worrier
Be sure to catch next week’s episode where we introduce you to the HELPFUL committee members who need more of a formal introduction to show up to the party. You wont’ want to miss it!
