At some point in our lives we have all had a kind of little voice in our heads that tells us: “You can not do it”. And we must not feel bad about listening to it, but we must identify when it appears to begin to free ourselves from it.

“This voice appears when we are living a stage of stress, insecurity or low self-esteem. We should not let it take over us because it damages our mental health“, Explain the psychotherapist of the International Clinic, Liliana Tuñoque.
In addition, the expert gives us some tips to put into practice to fight the ‘I can’t’:
➜ Think positive. Remember that with effort and sacrifice you can achieve your goals.
➜ Ask yourself before limiting yourself. For example, if you say: “I can’t pass the course” … Why can’t I pass it? Am I not going to study? There you will realize that if you study, everything will be fine.
➜ Analyze if your fear it has a real basis or it is an assumption.

What’s more remember there will be situations where things will not turn out as you expect, but you should not be discouraged. Reframe your strategy to achieve what you have in mind.
