Favorite quotes of the episode: 

“Most people are saying, ‘Once I get to someplace other than right now, I’ll be happy.’ And that’s where our suffering comes from.”

“The key to life is the ability to be able to stay centered with all of it.”

“Be an observer of your mind.”

“Discomfort is nothing more than an inner vibration…and I don’t have to make that feeling go away.”

“Pain is part of life, suffering is a choice.”

Episode Overview

In this episode, I talk with Joanna Kleinman from Dethroning Your Inner Critic to discuss how to dethrone our inner critics!

She is a licensed psychotherapist, a national workshop leader, and best-selling author with more than 22 years of experience working in private practice with clients both locally and all over the world via zoom. 

She created the online transformational program called “Dethroning Your Inner Critic™, and podcast. It is an approach that centers around her groundbreaking M.I.N.D Method, which consists of examining the habitual and conditioned thoughts and beliefs in our minds that have been playing on a repetitive loop for our whole lives and are as transparent as breathing. 

She teaches clients to rewire the automatic hardwiring in their minds, not by changing the conditioned thoughts, but by breaking the habit of giving energy and attention to the conditioned thoughts and beliefs. 

The M.I.N.D Method is one-of-a-kind and its foundation is guided by the unconventional idea that you don’t need a lifetime to learn, master, and then change the processes of the mind. 

Most people try to change the external circumstances of their lives in order to think and feel the contentment and satisfaction they desire.  Her methods focus on changing from the inside out.  This is the type of transformation that leads you to ‘waking up’ and viewing the world in a different way.
