GOAL: Continue to master the art of re-training your Inner Bully AND quickly find your inner-calmness


When you are aware that your Inner Bully is talking to you, stop, take several deep breaths and ask yourself:

  • What story am I telling myself about this situation? 
  • Are the concerns that I’m having now valid for this particular situation, or is it my Inner Bully telling me stories from my past to keep me inside my box?
  • What do I truly want to do?
  • What can I do right now to be the Boss?


Create a plan of how you want to feel and how you want to be. Spend a little time thinking about these details. Look to others for inspiration. Then practice being this way in your mind--over and over again, until you feel comfortable, or even excited!


Each time you have an emotion that you don't want to have, practice neutralizing that emotion and shift yourself into a calm state by using the simple and powerful "Choosing Calm" and  "Simple Truth" techniques. 

** Remember to write these down in your journal so you can track your progress.
