We all have that voice inside that comes straight from our heart and sometimes contradicts what our brain is telling us to do. This voice is our inner voice; it is the voice that you feel deep in your gut and the voice that helps you make the decisions that are best for you.
However, we do not always listen to this voice because it can be overshadowed by external words of doubt and negativity. There are days where it feels like the whole world is against you and nothing can seem to go right. But it is in these moments that we need to turn the volume up on our inner voice. After a while, our minds can be clouded by the overwhelming amount of negative comments and doubters that we begin to lose sight of all our hard work. But our inner voice is there to pick us up, brush us off, and put us right back on our feet.
It is so important to listen to your inner voice because it reminds us of our abilities, passions, and our self-worth. It is our reminder that no matter how many people doubt us, we know what we are capable of achieving.
This inner voice knows me on a level deeper than anyone else ever will. Because of this, I am the only person who can decide what is best for me and what I will accomplish in life. My inner voice is what gives me the confidence every single day to keep working hard to achieve my goals. Respect, growth, and success start with me. Others will see the change in me soon after. Because if I do not believe in myself, how can I expect anybody else to? It is like the old saying, “you must love yourself before expecting anyone to love you.” Remember to love yourself and to trust that you know your future and that each day of hard work brings you closer to your end goal.
The inner voice that told your younger self that you wanted to be a fashion designer, doctor, or CEO of a company, is the same inner voice that will tell you every day that you can do it. During my hardest times in life, my inner voice is my most loyal friend. It keeps me stable and on the right path. Trust that old friend of yours that is your inner voice. It will be honest with you, love you, and give you the strength to keep going. Your inner voice will be there for you during your most challenging times, but it will also be there during your biggest accomplishments to congratulate you.
Trust your guts and listen to your heart. Your inner voice knows what it’s talking about.
