I’ve been reading a book by Susan Baroncini-Moe–Business in Blue Jeans. She makes a lot of good points. One of her observations is about the voices we have in our heads….
The Voices in Your Head: Have you ever taken a moment to notice all the voices in your head? While you’re going about your daily life, there are voices in your head that are observing, considering, judging, commenting on the past, planning for the future, making lists, reacting to everything… it’s an almost endless dialogue. And only some of the voices in your head belong to you.
That’s right. You have voices in your head that belong to all kinds of people: family members, friends, teachers, pastors, bosses, coworkers, some random person that you met at a bar one time. They’re all in there, they all have something to say, and we all make the mistake of thinking that what they’re saying is what we believe.
