Working with tens of hundreds of clients over the last seven years, what strikes me when they open up is just how awful it can be inside their heads.
The more successful the outer image, often the more toxic the internal dialogue is.
That never ending internal criticism can lead to feelings of emptiness, unworthiness and even wanting to check out or numb it all away.
I can relate as I’ve been there myself. At the height of my successful PR & Marketing career I’d close the door to the never-ending chorus inside with sleeping pills, alcohol, or other distractions.
Yet if I achieved silence I felt alone and a nagging feeling would creep in asking ‘Is this as good as it gets?’.
