What Are Your Voices Telling You?

Fear, dreams,

Fear, dreams,

Have you ever noticed that the voices we hear in our heads NEVER say anything positive?  Have you ever awakened in the morning and immediately said to yourself, “You’re awesome!!  You can conquer the world!”

Uh.  No.

Why is that??

How come we have to fill our social media feeds with inspirational quotes?  I mean, have you ever seen anyone with a Pinterest board named, “Simmer Down” or “How to be Average.”

I seem to always be second guessing myself.  Asking myself things like, why are you chasing after that?  Who do you think you are?  No one is going to take you seriously.  What kind a credentials do you have that will make people want to share with you?

Those are the voices of fear.  Fear doesn’t tell the truth.  And fear isn’t rational.  Fear immediately tells you the “worst case scenario” and skips right over the facts and probabilities.

Let’s tell the truth.  It’s never as bad as we make it out to be in our heads.  Is it?  Why don’t we stop the madness right now and pull the cover off of fear.

  • I’m not perfect.  I don’t have to be.  And neither does any one else.  As a matter of fact, I’m not sure perfection even exists.  I’m just me.
  • My dreams aren’t too big.  They are attainable.  Not only do I have the tools and motivation to get there, but I also have the natural talent and calling.  If I didn’t want this dream deep down, I wouldn’t be looking for a way to follow it.  My dream is perfectly suited for me.
  • Others may not understand my calling.  That’s okay.  I don’t understand theirs.  But I’m going to support anyone who is in pursuit of their dream.  I hope they can do the same.
  • People want to be heard.  But they want to be heard by someone who cares and is honest.  I’m just going to be true to myself.  I can’t think of anyone else I’d rather be.

What are your dreams?  What sort of fears are you facing as you work toward them?  Can you prove to yourself that they aren’t true?
