THE FIRST VOICE - YOUR MIND TALKING TO YOU
The first voice is your mind
talking to you. Itís a voice from the past that continually
reminds you about who you are and what you can and cannot do.
It replays all the beliefs installed in your mind by your
parents and culture.
The first voice doesnít
discriminate between beliefs that are true or false, and often
its message is irrational and self-destructive. Nevertheless,
the first voice doesnít care. Itís simply in replay mode and
makes no attempt to critically assess the message. Whether your
beliefs are true or false is irrelevant to your mind while itís
in replay mode. Once it latches on to a belief, it tenaciously
clings to it and treats it as if it were true. When your mind
is in replay mode, it doesnít split hairs over the veracity of
what itís saying.
Your inner voice is a backward
look into your past. It reflects all of the thoughts you have
had up until the present. In it, you find all of the
limitations that have prevented you from living your dreams The
lingering immature ideas from your childhood and youth hide in
that internal monologue. When you became an adult, you didnít
leave all that mental baggage behind; itís still present and
constantly asserts itself in your self-talk.
This backward look can either
help or hurt you. If you listen to what it has to say and
believe the message, you will adopt a lifestyle dominated by the
limitations of the past. This ancient self-talk will shackle
you to the problems of the past, and your dreams will recede
into the distance. Your limiting beliefs will trap you in a
time warp in which every day is a replay of all the days that
went before. Instead of living three hundred and sixty five new
days each year, you will live one day three hundred and sixty
five times, and you will do it for the rest of your life,
repeating your old mistakes, trapped in the limitations of the
About five percent of people
listen to their inner voice, and what they hear motivates them
to change. Nothing could ever convince them to adopt the
limitations of the past and join the Life Long Disoriented.
When their inner voice starts its litany of limitations, these
people say, ďThanks for telling me that,Ē and then they banish
those limitations from their mind.
