Voices…

The loudest and most influential voice you hear is your own inner voice, your self critic. It can work for you or against you, depending on the messages you allow. Keith Harrell

I would love to share with you that the critic in us goes completely away.  The truth is it doesn’t.  It quiets radically but does not just go away entirely.  As we press on in life and continue to improve our thinking and outlook, as we utilize the tools to develop a strong positive mental attitude the voice becomes a quiet whisper that rears its ugly head once in a while!  For me that is great news.  I carried around with me the obnoxious critic that told me I failed or would continue to fail at everything.

As I have recovered and focused on living life to the fullest, the voice has diminished to the faint whisper it is today.  The negative inner voice has become a barometer that tells me I need to make an adjustment in my life.  When I find myself thinking negatively I stop, clear and refocus on what I can do to change how I am thinking.  I often bring myself back to reality and talk my way through it or if it is something persistent I get the advice of others like my sponsor.  Fortunately, as time has gone by there are less and less of these occurrences!
