Meet Hilda :: A Formal Introduction to Your Irksome Inner Naysayer

You know that negative voice in your head? The one that says you can’t, you shouldn’t, you suck? It’s not your dark side. It’s not a lizard. It’s certainly not a fuzzy creature that you shouldn’t feed after midnight.

It’s just Hilda.

Let me back up. Say you’ve decided to start something spectacular. Brilliant! But almost immediately after you proclaim, “I am going to {insert your goal here}” you start hearing her voice . . .

You’re dreaming far too big for someone like you.
You know you’re going to fail. Why even try?
They will find out you’re a phony, y’know.
Pfffft, this could never happen for you.
You really want to tempt fate like this?
People are going to laugh at you.
Why can’t you just be grateful?
That’s a really, really bad plan.
You shouldn’t have said that.
Who do you think you are?
Umm, that is a stupid idea.
You’re not good enough.
You’re just not ready yet.
You can’t do that until…
You’re so ignorant.
You don’t wanna.
You don’t know.
You shouldn’t.
You’ll never.
You won’t.
You can’t.
You suck.

. . . I know it ain’t just me.

You know this voice. You’ve heard it before. You may even be hearing it right now. And if you’re like everyone I have ever met, the voice in your head already has some signature phrases designed to torture you. This voice is upsetting and pervasive.

I call her Hilda.

She’s your irksome, inner naysayer who constantly tells you how much you suck. She’s the annoying, internal personal saboteur inside your brain that tells you incessantly that you’re not good enough. She jabs you in the ribs when she thinks you’re getting too big for your britches. She takes note of all your past failures and sends you not-so-gentle reminders of those moments every time a new idea arises. She’s the nagging, negative voice inside your brain that relentlessly picks away at your sense of possibility, your ambitions, your confidence, and your tenacity.

She’s the one with the disempowering messages who cunningly chips away at your potential. While you’re shaking out dusty beliefs, creating fresh mindsets, and setting new and lofty goals, Hilda’s in your head, saying disempowering things like I listed above.

Does her negativity sound familiar? If so, you’re in good company.

Hilda’s sole job in your life is to keep you small. To keep you stuck. To keep you safe. Because she doesn’t want you to get yelled at. Or get burned. Or embarrassed. Or fail miserably. Or get uncomfy in any way whatsoever. She simply stands between you and all that you could be. And unfortunately, she’s really freaking good at getting her way.

But here’s the good news: she is not the boss of you.

You don’t have to squander your power and potential. Instead, you have recognize what’s going on. You have to call her out. You have to listen closely to this voice and realize how much power it has and how much control you actually have over it and realize it’s not in charge of your life.

I’m here to help you seize control from Hilda. You’re gonna call on her BS. You’re gonna look it square in the eye. You’re gonna recognize her noise for what it is AND what it is not. Or to put it more directly, you’re gonna shut her up.
