How do you speak to yourself when you make a mistake? Do you say, “It’s okay, You’ll get it next time,” or does it go something like this, “You’re so stupid… you’re always making stupid mistakes!”
We’ve all dealt with a bully at some point in our lives and we know exactly how it feels to be bullied. But did you know that you have an inner bully inside of you who is stopping you from living your best life.
Bruce Langford is a Mindfulness consultant and creator of the top-ranked iTunes podcast, Mindfulness Mode. He is hired by companies to improve corporate culture by replacing stress and anxiety with team spirit and self-respect.
As a result of his trainings, employee sick time declines, general wellness improves, and profits increase.

“[Bullying] happens everywhere, it happens in businesses and families, for sure, and I think people become so ego-focused. And we start operating from that place of ego and we can’t see anything else. We can’t see other people’s perspectives. We start losing empathy for other people and we start driving forward based on what our ego is telling us.” – Bruce Langford
“We all have a creative side and that creative side can help us understand who we really are and who we’re meant to be. But if we push it away and we hide it and use that mask to pretend that it doesn’t exist, then that doesn’t serve us.” – Bruce Langford
