All too often, we ambitious women allow ourselves to be overly influenced by detractors. Because it never occurs to us to question motives or do a quick mental fact check about whether or not this person knows what the heck he or she is talking about. Time to pull out a reality check tool to nip this tendency in the bud.
Are you giving too much airtime to naysayers, saboteurs, doubters and underminers?
If you answered true to two or more of these statements, you need to beef up your detractor-defense strategies. Not to worry. It's perfectly normal for your confidence to take a hit when a negative person assaults your idea or something about you. The important thing is not to let those feelings linger or get you down. Recognize it as a detractor situation. Feel the impact for a minute, or for an hour, or for a day (and yes, of course, it's sometimes painful), and then let it go. Keep yourself moving forward, optimistic—and most important, armed with strategies to protect yourself and your power from further attack.
