Think hard now, when was the last time you said or did something that wasn’t influenced by the opinions of the voices in your head or your worries about what other people will think? I’ll bet it was a while ago. Maybe never.
This whole week for me has been about that. What do I really think about things? Am I doing this to please someone else? What would I really say? Because we are so used to listening to the criticisms and voices in our heads that we have forgotten what we really think, what we really believe.
You don’t mean it to be that way, it is just part of the human condition. We start off with our parents telling us how to behave and think and we follow that till we move on to our friends and work colleagues and lets not forget the media and what it spouts at us.
So today I want you to take five minutes and listen to your mind, really listen. What voice amongst all the rest is actually yours, is actually what you believe?
