I Hear Voices.

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

The dominant voice in my head tells me, “You are awesome. You will accomplish great things. Your potential will open up the possibilities of the universe.” In leadership and in life, it is important to be aware of the voices taking up real estate in your head because the voices will either push you down a downward spiral of negativity and despair or take you high above the clouds of joy and fascination.

“One’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes

To attain happiness and peace of mind, we must understand the concept that all is invented in our thoughts and we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously. Labels and definitions are up to us to create, accept, reject, and define. We control the thoughts and voices in our mind. Thus, we are the ones that are accountable for the choices we make, and we are the ones that select which voice to listen to and which voice to kick out.

When times get tough, the challenges become daunting, and doubt begins to sets in…my dominant voice reminds me that I am worthy, I am courageous, and I am wonderful. And drowns out the minor voices of negativity and my heart is filled with an abundance of joy and laughter. I believe the world is filled with limitless awesome possibilities for everyone and I will never give anyone permission to “dull my sparkle.” Stand tall, be proud, and let our voices drown out the negativity of our world.

“Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love.” – Brené Brown


  • What voices dominate your thoughts?
  • What voices do you choose to listen to? Why?
  • What shapes the definition of how we experience our world?
  • What is your vision of utopia?
  • Is our thoughts linked to how we see the world?


Take out a piece of paper, write in a journal, or type away at the computer. Find a quiet place and introspect on what are the triggers that defines how you experience life? For example, what triggers happiness, sadness, joy, pain, love, etc.? Afterwards, knowing what you know about your triggers, do you have control of them? Why or why not?

  1. This is an incredible article. I was pleasantly surprised at the opening quote which happens to be my favorite.I’m sure the article speaks to many on the same level. I wonder why we’re sometimes conditioned to be average. It sure takes additional effort to get out of the rut and make yourself believe you have so much more in you, than you think you do! Thankyou for writing this down, it’s relatable and inspiring!

    1. Hi Jiji. Thank you for your comments. I believe the reason for the “average” conditioning is that people are so busy being busy that they forget to treat themselves or lose sight of their dreams. That is why we must continue to connect with others and create a collective surge of positivity to enhance our life and the lives of those around us.

    1. Hi Laura. I know what you mean. I used to get into a funk and tried to find a way out of it, and it didn’t dawn on me to explore what triggered it in the first place. Thanks.
