We often find ourselves with a lot of conflicting voices speaking into our lives.

These voices or opinions could come from the people around us or even from within ourselves.

The voices that we pay heed to significantly influence how we live our lives, so my question today is, which voice are you listening to?

The voice that says, “You can do it,” or the one that says, “You’ve got no chance?”

The voice that says, “You’re valuable,” or the one that says, “You’ve got nothing to offer?”

The voice that says, “Keep trying,” or the one that says, “Give up?”

The voice that says, “You can make a difference in the world,” or the one that says, “What’s the point?”

The voice that says, “Awesome job, well done,” or the one that says, “Pfft, this is what you did wrong?”

The voice that says, “Let’s get some work done,” or the one that says, “I can’t be bothered?”

The voice that says, “Life is great,” or the one that says, “Life sucks?”

The voice that says, “It doesn’t have to be this way, make some changes,” or the one that says, “You’re stuck and you can never escape?”

Be careful about which voice you’re listening to.

And be careful about what you’re saying to those around you.
