This works for me - if I am "stuck" and having difficulty motivating myself, or I notice a lot of negative 'self-talk,' I start writing down a conversation with this inner voice, using an objective, journalistic, "adult" voice to ask questions of myself and get to the root of my feelings. Tapping into this encouraging, grown-up part of who I am helps to work the negatives out of my thinking and return me to a more positive and courageous mindset. It's like being my own best friend!
