Voices

You Can Get With This or You Can Get With That . . .

You can get with this or you can get with that. But you can’t do both.

The world today is filled with many voices all competing for our attention.  Books, podcasts YouTube Videos, webinars, meetings and the like are jockeying for position in between our ears or in front of our eyes. Attention is the new commodity according to Gary Vaynerchuck, who day trades attention.

Each of these voices has something significant to offer and each is speaking a truth but is that truth or offering good for you?

Do you follow someone because their words ignite something within you? Do you follow because someone you know follows them? Do follow because they followed you and you are being polite by following them back? Do you follow to get more followers? Do you follow what I’m saying?

Listening to or “following” many different voices can be difficult and confusing. Each voice has a different point of view which may be the reason that many listeners or followers are stuck or unstable in their endeavors. One voice says, “Do this.” Another voice says, “Do that”. The listener/follower is now torn between two opinions. “No one can follow two opinions. No one can follow two voices.

Which voice is right for you? The voice to whom you give your attention must speak truth. Truth that is true for you. That voice must nourish your growth. That voice must help you reach your destination (your destiny) and help you fulfill your purpose.

It’s time to consider and audit the books, podcasts, videos, the meetings, and webinars to whom we give our attention. It’s time to delete and discard those voices that don’t take us where we want to go. It’s no fun realizing that you missed your turn because you weren’t  listening to the right directions. Listen to and follow those who are going your way. Do it today. You don’t have time to be on the wrong road. #Whatsonyourplaylist

Piece of Mind

We all have great thoughts and wonderful ideas. However, our thoughts and ideas are no good to us or anyone else unless they are shared.

Words are the vehicle that we use to share these thoughts and ideas. We use words to paint pictures of our thoughts and ideas to share with others.

What comes to your mind when I say the word “dog”? Do you see Ralphie, your childhood pet or do you see the neighbors little black the chihuahua that seems to never stop barking?

Your words help us to image (imagine) your thoughts and ideas. This is why it is important to capture the vision (your thoughts & ideas), write it and make it simple on paper. This will require that you sit down, get quiet and turn off all distractions.

Now take that written vision of the company, building, ministry, book or invention and begin building it out. Share it with others. Effective communication is really important at this point. You must consistently communicate and clarify your vision to and with your team until they see the vision like you see it.

There is a beautiful building in you, a great symphony or best-selling book for which the world is waiting. Do it today. Write that vision. Make it simple and give us a piece of your mind.
