A friend of mine has a beautiful 4 year old daughter. Often this young lady will speak loudly inside and her mother will request her “use your inside voice, please”. Every time, I hear her share this with her daughter, I think what does my “inside voice” say to me. Is my inner voice screaming – judgment, am I blaming myself about the past, fearing the future, make excuses about my behavior or outcomes, procrastinating about the future? I stand in awe of my friend consistently encouragement to her daughter of how she can do anything. She is teaching her to keep her commitments, she makes agreements with her then holds her accountable, and she laughs and plays with her. They have an amazing relationship.
As I was listening to my inner voice this morning and thinking “Gee I am weary of the circumstances of my life”, it would be great to go to work draw a check come home. Then the thought came- who would I desire for my CEO. WOW then the big one came stop your complaining you have one CEO –“Christ Essential One”.
Who do you believe is the CEO who is the director of your journey? Is it Mr. /Mrs. Blame, Excuses, Procrastination? When you visit your internal “Board Room”, what is your voice saying? Does it create an entanglement or are you empowered?
