Thank you for the thoughtful words, Nalini. I agree, we must not only shut out the negative voices, but also focus on the inner, true self and what we believe about ourselves. I have experienced success in this by shedding off relationships with negative critics and doubters, as well as practicing mindfulness and developing more positive mindsets (The book Mindset by Carol Dweck was an excellent read for me!).
