3 lessons on listening to our “inner voice”

I have learned a few things as I have explored the principle of “the answer to all questions lie within” this week. I would love to hear what you have learned as well.

  1. The more we pay attention to the inner voice within each of us, the more noticeable it becomes. Like a muscle, we have to work it out in order for it to strengthen.  As we pay attention we will be able to notice when the answers come to our questions.
  2. We all have the answers within each of us…and when we have the support of a coach or mentor that can assist us with recognizing these answers…results are increased
  3. We have multiple voices that speak to us, and may be disguised as our “inner voice”.  Some of them tell us that we are not good enough, that we cant do it, that we should stop trying.  The others inspire us to take action to greatness.In the end we get to choose which one we listen to.  We need to be able to recognize all of these promptings, but the ones we should listen to are the promptings that assist us in becoming who we are meant to be.

This clip shares some great insight into the battle we sometimes go through with the “inner voices” we have.

Here is to all of us listening to the inner voice that motivates, inspires, and directs us to greatness.

Following your inner voice takes courage

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs

I love this quote from Steve Jobs.  It is one of my favorites.  Having the courage to follow your heart and intuition takes effort, but it has been my experience that every time I do…things always work out for the best.

How has having the courage to follow your inner voice helped you?
