"Ready to transform your inner voice into a positive force?"
For some of you, this may be the most important episode you’ll listen to this year.
We listen to our inner voice every day. Sometimes it can be bursting with love and positivity for ourselves, but more often than not, it’s full of negativity and critique.
Every time we say something to ourselves, we’re triggering an emotion, and if this phrase or word is used consistently, it will become a regularly used pattern in our brains.
Over time, this can then become part of our identity, belief system and behaviours, subsequently impacting our happiness, success and ability to live a life we love.
Instead of trying to get rid of our troublesome voice, we can transform our inner critique into our very own positive cheerleader, a friendly and supportive ally.
So why not start transforming your inner voice into a powerful positive force? -- Jo Pickard tells us how!(For a 3-step process to change your inner voice into a positive powerhouse read my article on 3 Steps To Improve Your Inner Voice)

3 Steps To A Powerful Positive Inner Voice
1.Observe your inner voice and recognise when it's being negative - now lets change it!
2. Now try these tricks to change your inner critic - some may work even better for you than others;
See yourself turning down the volume of your inner voice to mute
Change the voice tone to one that makes you laugh - like Donald Duck, Patsy from Absolutely Fabulous, Miranda Hart, Michael Macintyre etc.
Move the voice from where it's coming from
If you can see it, shrink the image down to the size of a pin head and roll it way off behind you until it disappears
Change the colour so its really dark, old and faded
3. Now create a beautiful sounding inner voice that says wonderful, positive things to you
Have your new fabulous inner voice say to you all the amazing things you want to hear e.g. I can do this, I am calm, positive and serene, I am beautiful
Match the tone/pace of your inner voice with how you want to feel e.g. upbeat, loud and fast paced to get you energised or slow, soft and quiet to feel calm.
The more you practice doing this, the stronger the neural pathways will get and your powerful positive inner voice will become the norm
