“To all appearances, Eleanor Longden was just like every other student, heading to college full of promise and without a care in the world. That was until the voices in her head started talking. Initially innocuous, these internal narrators became increasingly antagonistic and dictatorial, turning her life into a living nightmare. Diagnosed with schizophrenia, hospitalized, drugged, Longden was discarded by a system that didn’t know how to help her. Longden tells the moving tale of her years-long journey back to mental health, and makes the case that it was through learning to listen to her voices that she was able to survive.” – TED
This TED talk rings especially true when compared to my own coaching through SoulBlazing™. Indeed, we all struggle with voices in our own head that are responding to pain that we experienced in our childhood, although Eleanor struggled with them in far more literal ways.
After watching this video, ask yourself what Impostors figuratively whisper to you, and why. If it’s anything like what Eleanor experienced, the more you try to understand why the voices exist, the faster you will have a handle on controlling them and making them work for you, rather than against.

Just like Eleanor, the sooner you learn to diagnose the origins of your inner voices, the sooner you can transform your life!
