Focus on what’s working.

Write down 3 things that are going well now. These could be big or small. Related to your business or not. The point is to acknowledge that there is movement in your life now and build on that momentum.

Dialogue with your inner critic.

Find out what it’s most afraid of or what it’s protecting you from. Start to recognize its concerns or triggers. The more aware you are of when you’re in it’s grips, the easier it will be to tell it to bug off!

If it’s helpful, draw a picture of your inner critic. I love how When I Grow Up Coach Michelle Ward doodled her Vampire named Vern. Certainly helps to diffuse the critic’s power when all you can do is chuckle at how silly it is!

“Let things come out full spade in one big wave so you don’t ferment over them for months on end.” – Leonie Allan, creator of GoddessGuidebook.com

I love this tip from that Leonie Allan shared with us during the Right-Brainers in Business Video Summit. She asked, “If you were going to create something really glorious, really magical this weekend and have it finished by the end of the weekend – what would you create and why don’t you do it?” Brilliant! That’s how she created her first Goddess Planner and Workbook in four days and she sold tons of them. If you get a flash of inspiration just go for it before your left brain even has time to kick-in and stall you!

Oh, and here’s a bonus Left-Brain Chill Pill of sorts from Goddess Leonie that had me cracking up – A song for frustrated business goddesses!

“Slow down.” – Pam Slim, author of Escape from Cubicle Nation

During her guest appearance on the Right-Brainers in Business Video Summit, Pam Slim showed us this great gift she received from author Patti Digh. It’s a small, artsy tile that says “slow down” and Pam said that looking at it helps calm her down when she’s feeling a bit out of touch or is spinning.

How can you create a touchstone to remind you to slow down? Maybe it’s a rock from outside to remind you to stop and ground. Or a photo that inspires you to pause and take a deep breath. When I’m feeling like I’m in a tizzy, I love to listen to India Arie’s fabulous song “Slow down.”

Sleep on it. You’ll have fresh insights tomorrow.

Is your head spinning with too many options and what ifs? Not sure about what to do? Don’t try to muscle your way to an answer if your mind is feeling muddled. Instead, take a break and come back to it later with a clear head.

“The act of creating something new makes us vulnerable.” – Lisa Sonora Beam, author of The Creative Entrepreneur

During her Right-Brainers in Business guest interview, Lisa Sonora Beam shared one of her favorite Left-Brain Chill Pills. It comes in the form of a mantra that she repeats to her self. “The act of creating something new makes us vulnerable.”

She went on to say, “Just recognizing that whenever we are going to start something new that feelings will come up and sometimes they are not so comfortable but I really look at that as a good sign because if we weren’t feeling a little nervous or something – nervous at one end of the spectrum, terrified at the other end – then we are probably not on the right path for us at that the moment.” Very wise!
