Subj: Open your mouth and say OWWWWWWW
Many people say they want to become a professional blog artist, own their own business, make a ton of money, travel the world and live free…
If only they could find their own voice.
The only thing required of an artist is a voice.
If you do not possess a voice, what on earth makes you think you will make a living from your art?
Here's the answer: Nothing will happen for you if you do not have a voice.
If you lack a voice the only thing you will be able to do is use your ears to take orders.
Thankfully, it is VERY EASY! to find your own voice.
It is in the one place you are not looking.
If you cannot find your own voice it is because you are looking for it everywhere but in plain sight.
Here's an example…
Have you ever lost your car keys and looked for them for 15 minutes?
You looked everywhere you could think of, in the refrigerator, in the bathroom, under the bed, under the rug, you even looked on the ceiling.
When you finally find your car keys, where were they the whole time?
They were on the table right in front of your face the whole time.
You looked absolutely everywhere for the car keys, except for right in front of your face.
So how do you find your own voice?
If you cannot find your voice it is the same problem, you are looking absolutely everywhere but you are not looking at the obvious.
To find your voice, you'll do so many silly things like:
- Accept that you have a unique and special voice that is overflowing with possibilities.
- Regularly spend time in stillness and silence.
- Cultivate your ability to listen to the world around you.
- Tap into your passion overlap.
- Get really objective.
- After you’ve meditated for a few minutes, place your hand on your heart and ask: “Where am I holding back?”
- Find someone who really believes in you.
You'll do these things and they won't work, yet you still believe the answer is in doing more rather than doing less.
You still think the answer is in thinking bigger rather than thinking small.
You're still looking for the car keys in the toilet when they are on the table by the door the whole time.
You look everywhere except for the one place your voice actually is: hidden in plain sight.
Are you ready to stop doing stupid things and start doing things the only way they actually work?
Would you like to actually find your voice in the simplest way?
Are you ready to start looking at the obvious?
Ok, here is where you can find your voice…
YOUR VOICE IS IN YOUR MOUTH.
To find your voice, look in your mouth. It was there the whole time.
Open your mouth, use your voice, write the words your mouth says.
This is how you find your voice. It was never lost, you simply chose not to hear it or use it.
You can look in a million other places for your voice, but the only thing you will find elsewhere is nothing.
Like when you look for the car keys in the backyard when they were on the table by the front door the whole time, where they always are.
Your voice is in your mouth, it always was. It has never been lost, you are just not using it.
Your voice has already been developed and is waiting to be used, but you were too busy sitting in the backyard and meditating in silence, looking for something that was never lost.
Why are you making it so hard to find your voice when it is not even hiding from you?
Open your mouth and talk, do not be a shy little mouse.
Open your mouth and roar, your voice was never hidden from you in the first place.
Open your mouth and say OWWWWWWWWW!
Your voice was always there, waiting for you to take control.
Now that you know exactly where it is…
Until next time.
