Keeping your head when those around you are losing theirs!

By | February 23, 2015

Sometimes our worst enemy whether in life or in business does not come from without but rather from within!

At one time or another we have all come up against that faceless voice that attempts to inject our minds with feelings of doubt or insecurity.

In one of his recent blog posts, Seth Godin speaks to ‘The trolls inside‘!

The worst troll is in your head.

Internet trolls are the commenters begging for a fight, the anonymous critics eager to tear you down, the hateful packs of roving evil dwarves, out for amusement.

But the one in your head, that voice of insecurity and self-criticism, that’s the one you need to be the most vigilant about.

Do not feed the troll.

Do not reason with the troll.

Do not argue with the troll.

Most of all, don’t litigate. Don’t make your case, call your witnesses, prove you are right. Because the troll knows how to sway a jury even better than you do.

Get off the troll train. Turn your back, walk away, ship the work.
