We hold ourselves to high standards. Sometimes, we elevate those standards to impossible ones. The desire to have something be perfect feeds anxiety and leads to procrastination.

Petra Kolber says it’s time to stop listening to that inner critic who makes you feel like it’s not worth it if you’re not perfect.

The feeling may not ever go away. Awareness of the inner critic who bars you from doing your best work will help you catch it faster. It takes work to get past the negative self talk.

When you own imperfections, they lose their power over you.

Exploring your potential shuts up the critic. 

Listen as Petra joins Dr. Bond to share doable steps to cultivate your joy and silence the inner negativity.
