Working with Self-Criticism

I'm sure you can relate to this: You want to do something. And yet, you keep telling yourself that you are stupid, that you'll never succeed. You jump to the worst case scenarios and then start comparing yourself to others who are doing this thing you want to do but are doing it SO MUCH BETTER than you. 

What's going on? Why are we often our own worst enemies? How does it make sense on some level that the mind evolved to be super negative and critical towards us? 

In this short video, I talk about the job description of the mind and how to deal with this harsh, painful way of speaking to ourselves. 

Hint: The mind will never become a cheerleader. And if we wait for this to happen, we'll never do anything in life.
