Fixed Mindset: "I'm afraid I'll fail or look stupid."

People with a fixed mindset believe their talents, abilities, and intelligence are predetermined at birth. People with fixed mindsets are afraid of trying new things because they want to appear intelligent and talented despite their lack of experience. Change your fixed Mindset if you hear this voice.

Lethargy: "I'm too tired. I don't have the energy."

Close your eyes for a moment. Keep an eye on your breathing. Accepting lethargy is frequently the most effective way to overcome it. You can also try grounding exercises to help you release your energy. If that doesn't work, a 60-second cold shower changes our biochemistry and wakes us up.

Apathy: "I just don't care about anything."

Regret: "I'm too old to get started. It's too late."

Having regrets is a part of adulthood. Regret only holds us back when we don't allow ourselves to grieve the past. When you hear this voice, feel the sense of loss and then let it go. These voices are just beliefs, not truths.

Identity: "I'm just a lazy person."

When we're centered, we are neutral. We don't define ourselves as either lazy people or the opposite (achievers). We just are. Acknowledge this voice, but then ask it to step aside. We can express laziness, but it never defines who we are.
