“My words create my reality. If I change the message I have the power to change my life” Christine Lewicki
The little voices in our heads or the chatterbox…we all have it and it accompanies us everyday.
There’s the voice of enthusiasm full of projects, ideas. The voice that encourages us to grow and discover. It’s the little voice that says ” what if…”
And there’s the voice of fear that drags us down and kills our joy. The one that stops and prevents us from moving forward. It’s the little voice that says: ” I can’t do it …I am not capable…”
These two little voices or chatterbox live inside us and they are especially active in the creative, curious and entrepreneur types.
The voice of fear is often powerful and takes up lots of room in our lives. It often gets on our nerves, frustrates and gives us a bad image of ourselves. We’d like it to shut it up but to no avail.
Do you know the book called “Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway” by Susan Jeffers ? It’s an excellent book that encourages us to forge ahead with our projects beyond our fears.
Today, I’d like to invite you to consider and treat the voice of fear like your ally. I’d like you to ask yourself the following question: “How is this fear voice seeking my good?” What is it trying to tell you?
Could it be that this little fear voice is telling you are not ready,that the timing is not quite right… Take a good listen to hear what it is trying to tell you (versus limiting you) Sometimes fear is telling us that we are going through something very important for us. If we feel afraid it simply means we are living something important. It doesn’t necessarily mean that we have to stop and take a step back but on the contrary forge ahead and go forward because it matters. (with caution).
Once you’ve identified the messages, tune in again to the voice of enthusiasm and feed off it as soon as possible. Can you see how these two voices can become partners for your well-being and your growth?
I’d like to invite you to take notice of these two voices and really decipher what they are telling you… play and adjust the volume! Most important seek to identify the message of the little voice that limits you and replace the message with a stronger more positive message!
