If you are catching yourself exercising self-destructive behavior and negative self-talk more and more, you may be dealing with an inner child who is acting out. In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Jack Canfield mentions that if your inner child is struggling to feel heard, you may need to adopt a few new habits.
In this respect, it’s important to note the difference between acting “childish” and celebrating a child’s wide-eyed wonder for life. Canfield explains that if you are feeling negative as an adult, may mean that your inner child is feeling wounded. To uplift your inner child, Canfield recommends the following tips:
- Be patient. Children are famously known for being short on patience and resisting long waits. If you are constantly impatient, this will stand in the way of your ability to set and meet goals, which often entail more than expected.
- Grant forgiveness to your inner child.
- Extend encouragement. Instill the belief in your inner child that you can do whatever you want.
- Take advantage of opportunities to have fun in life.
