Description

Do you have people dishing out negative comments and judgmental opinions about your life like they're giving away free samples at the grocery store? 

The old advice is to: (1) Just ignore them and they'll go away or (2) You can't change negative people, so just accept it 

But what happens when the criticism comes from the people closest to you, the ones who are supposed to support you? 

This week we're diving into why the people around you are doubting or judging you and learn actionable strategies to help you do something about it instead 

You'll learn:

  • the 5 most common reasons why some people may be negative or judgmental towards you
  • how repeated negativity turns into a habit and what you can do about it instead
  • the impact of other people's negative emotions have on our mental and psychological well-being 
  • how to set up strong personal boundaries to protect your inner peace from negative individuals
  • why their judgment is more about THEM than about you 
  • the way to turn their criticism and judgment into fuel for your own personal growth and development 
  • to reframe any situation into a positive one, helping you effectively navigate any resistance you may encounter
