I don’t know about you, but when I’m watching a movie, I like it best with surround sound. I guess it does a better job of making me feel like I’m right there in the middle of all the action; it makes the movie come alive.
Think about the dream you have for your life and imagine it playing like a movie. Does your surround sound make your dream come alive? If not, it’s time to reevaluate who and what you’re allowing yourself to listen to.
We all have our own personal surround sound. Whether it’s the voices of the people around us, or our own self-talk, we are constantly absorbing “surround sound.” These voices are critical in determining whether or not we believe we have what it takes to live out our dreams, and it’s why words are so powerful and transformational.
Take some time today to become aware of the words you’re hearing on a constant basis. What kind of friends do you allow to influence you? What kind of music do you listen to? What kind of words do you speak to yourself throughout the day? Determining whether or not your surround sound is life-giving to you, is a key factor in determining whether or not you’re giving life to your dreams and purpose.
