How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make
Does this get any better
Should I carry on
Will it matter when I’m gone
Will any of this matter

 

Even Madonna has an Inner Critic. We all do.

I’ve seen my inner critic. She lives inside my head. I call her Miss Bossy-Pants.

A tiny, skinny, bleached blonde know-it-all wearing too much black eyeliner, all puffed up, who thinks she knows me. She likes to shoot down my dreams. Say things like, “You are not worthy,” and, “Who the Hell do you think you are, a Superstar?” And, the best one…”You should just quit!”

Have you heard yours? What lies does she tell you?

I also have a Future Self. She’s deep. And wise.

When Inner Critic pokes her snarky, bossy-pants face in my business and says, “Don’t even bother, Loser”! I just say, “I see you, but I’m not listening.” Then, I look to my Future Self, who beckons me with her sweet, siren song. She tells me to carry on, that what I do matters, that I have something the world needs, that I have gifts to share. To never give up.

To Lead.

What does your inner critic look like? Learn to recognize her.

The more you call her out, the more your Inner Critic’s voice will diminish. Even if she doesn’t go away entirely–which she won’t–you can quiet her. Then ask, “What would my Future Self say or do?” Listen to the quieter–yet stronger voice calling you forward. Calling you to Lead.

Seek out the still, strong voice. Stifle the Inner Critic!

Who you gonna call?

You make a difference.

So, how high?

The sky’s the limit.

How High by Madonna

(Lyrics)

How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make
How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make

It’s funny
I spent my whole life wanting to be talked about
I did it
Just about everything to see my name in lights

Was it all worth it
And how did I earn it
Nobody’s perfect
I guess I deserve it

How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make
Does this get any better
Should I carry on
Will it matter when I’m gone
Will any of this matter

It’s funny
How everybody mentions my name
They’re never very nice
I took it
Just about everything except my own advice

Was it all worth it
And how did I earn it
Nobody’s perfect
I guess I deserve it

How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make
(Nothing lasts forever)
Does this get any better
Should I carry on
Will it matter when I’m gone
(Does it make a difference)
Will any of this matter

How high, does it make a difference
Nothing lasts forever
Should I, will it matter when I’m gone
Will any of this matter

How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make
Should I carry on
Will it matter when I’m gone

How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make
Does this get any better
Should I carry on
Will it matter when I’m gone
Will any of this matter

How high are the stakes
(How high, does it make a difference)
Nothing lasts forever
Does this get any better
Should I carry on
(Should I, will it matter when I’m gone)
Does it make a difference
Will any of this matter

How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make
Should I carry on
Will it matter when I’m gone

How high are the stakes
How much fortune can you make
Should I carry on
Will it matter when I’m gone
