Who is in charge - Self 1 or Self 2?

Self 2 - The often quiet inner voice of trust and belief in self and one's own potential. Characteristics such as:

- relaxed concentration

- focused

- present

- calm

- self belief


Self 1 - The loud inner voice of the Judge or Critic. Characteristics such as:

- anxious

- perfectionist
