Well, let us let you into a secret – it doesn’t know how things are going to turn out so here’s the kinds of things it says and how you can turn them on their head.

1) IM: Why are you bothering to learn guitar – you’ll never be any good

How does your IM know? Answer: It doesn’t – you could be an amazing guitarist and you’ll never know if you don’t try! Think I’m going to be brilliant at guitar (or any other instrument) and get ready to rock!

2) IM: That’s right don’t ask your crush out – you’ll only get hurt, they’ll never say yes

Are you sure? They might feel the same way about you about you but you’ll never know if both of your IMs are screaming not to ask as both of you don’t want to get hurt. We wouldn’t really recommend Joey’s technique but imagine them saying yes and go for it.

3) IM: Really, you’re studying when you could be on Twitter? You’re not going to pass these exams

There’s a saying if you fail to prepare you’re preparing to fail so tell your IM to shut up. Find out the best way you learn and give studying a go. If that’s brainstorms, drawing cartoons about the subjects, writing songs, flash cards – experiment and see what works.

4) IM: Submit your writing/art work for a competition / to an agent / publisher etc – you’re joking, right. There are so many other people more talented than you

There’s always going to people entering these competitions, submitting to agents and publishers but don’t think about them – focus on why you created this thing in the first place why you love it and submit it anyway. Repeating the mantra just because you think their are people more talented than you there’s probably others out there who think you’re more talented than them. Submit the work and see what happens – you never know what’s around the corner.
