How much is the Pinocchio Syndrome Costing You?

By: Viraj Sawant

Increasing revenue is something that you need to constantly address and one way to do it is to decrease expenses. How much of your day is spent on thinking and arguing with your self? How much are the self-arguments costing you? What if you didn’t spend time on that? Can you imagine a day where you didn’t have a single argument with yourself? Let me explain how and why you may have those arguments so that you can recognize self-sabotage.

You can use a variety of ways to ?nd out how you are sabotaging yourself. The ?rst and easiest way is to acknowledge the daily con?icts that you experience. Con?icts occur when part of your mind wants one thing, and part of you wants something else. When this happens, there is a great deal of confusion. This state is very uncomfortable and, depending on the degree of the con?ict, it can be painful with severe rami?cations. When we act out of one side of the mind based on actions that we have suppressed we may do something inappropriate and damaging.

When we act out of the other side of the mind, the opportunity may arise when this side reacts as well. In this state of mind, there is a lack of peace, to put it simply.

Acknowledge the daily conflicts that you experience.

You may recall Jiminy Cricket in the movie Pinocchio. Jiminy Cricket is the small cricket representing Pinocchio’s conscience. The wolf and his friends constantly persuade Pinocchio to do things that are wrong. When Pinocchio begins doing something naughty, Jiminy Cricket jumps on Pinocchio’s shoulder and speaks up, telling him what not to do. At times Pinocchio listens, and other times he does not. He constantly struggles whether to listen to the wolf or to listen to Jiminy. Jiminy has to be very persistent with Pinocchio to get him to listen.

Are your conflicts about food, money or relationships? What is your “Jiminy” saying to you and why? What are you arguing with your self about? Can you come to terms with the two sides? How would your day have been better if you and your “self” got along and how much more money would you have made today?

Are you ready to let go of the Pinocchio Syndrome once and for all?
