As women, we are often our own worst enemy. That voice inside us is relentless in its pursuit of making us feel bad about ourselves, pulling us down for total insignificancies and elbowing good voices out the way. This inner critic is often instrumental in stopping us succeed, achieving the heights we’re capable of. Successful women have also had to contend this voice but they have ignored and overcome. They found ways to shut down their inner critic. They share their wisdom so you can too.
1. J.K. Rowling
It’s crazy to think about J.K. Rowling failing at anything, but believe it or not, before she rose to fame and fortune, her manuscript for the first Harry Potter novel was rejected by a host of publishers, and this continued recently when she released rejection letters from publishers for her crime novel under the false name Robert Galbraith! Her message for shutting down your inner critic is to simply “learn to fail”, and then you can move on without being hurt every time.
