So, About Those Voices In Your Head…

The Wrong Voice tells you to do things to make money. It says “Make money first, then you will be free to pursue your dreams”. But the Wrong Voice is full of crap.

The Wrong Voice comes from your Lizard Brain, the amygdale. It’s the reptilian part of your brain that is not very intelligent and is only concerned, in a kind of scared little animal way, with surviving in a harsh world.

In order to be butt-kicking superheroes, we need to identify this voice (which Steven Pressfield calls the Resistance) and laugh in his face. We need to learn and understand the power of the following simple quote by Steve Jobs:

“There is no reason not to follow our heart.”

At first glance this may seem like a clichéd line, and indeed “follow your heart” kind of is. But to me the real power that drives this statement is “there is no reason not to…”.

He was being literal – there truly is no actual reason not to follow your heart. There literally is no reason not to sing, write, paint, start your dream business, have a child, restore that old car or whatever.

It can be hard to hear your Right Voice, but it’s always there, patiently urging you to kick massive butt…

    From personal experience, your advice is probably easier to act on before marriage, mortgage, car note, children! I will say that my music composing has really flourished these past 15 years despite my work and all those “distractions”, above. Had I followed my heart rather than the advice of my elders, I may have been published by now. Who knows? My added advice is “Keep doing what you love to do. Find a way despite all the demands on your time and attention. You will find peace in your pursuit.”

    Yes agreed. Note I did not say “quit your day job”. The way out is through.
