The Saipanpreneur Project
In your master's voice
In your master's voice
The only way to take control of your life, raise your standard of living and move beyond merely surviving is to create your own unique product or service that you offer to increasing numbers of people in exchange for the things of value that you desire. This simple formula applies to countries as well as people. A self-sufficient economy has its own products or services of value to export to the world. Similarly, a self-sufficient individual has something of value to exchange in the global marketplace. That thing of value is based on your natural talent, skill, or interest—in other words, your passion!
In Your Master’s Voice
When there's no good reason not to
and you feel like choosing not
It's the opposing team of failure
trying hard to block your shot
When you lose the fire of forward
and choose to stay in bed and sleep
You'll be sure it's the clutch of “never will”
that’s grasping at your feet
The familiar face of failure
visits often as a friend
It's up to you to send it off
and choose victory in the end
So how to tell, how best to see
the habits that keep you back?
It's your thoughts from others' views of you
that's keeping you in lack
So ask the stars what road to take
what move to make your choice
Your guide towards the prize you seek
speaks in your master's voice
The Master’s Voice is about our “failure mechanism.” Our failure mechanism is what keeps us doing the things that will guarantee our failure. Even though we all say that we want success, our fear of success, and our desire to stay within a familiar comfort zone are the real deciding factors in our everyday decisions.
We all hear voices that guide us throughout the day. We all have a familiar guide which consults us when any opportunity or decision presents itself. This guide often speaks to us in the voice of our fears, the voice of our self-perceptions, the voice of our beliefs and our expectations.
It is what will always keep us on the outside of our dreams looking in.
Your “master” is that belief or perception which has the greatest influence over you. If your master is fear, doubt and low expectations, then that is the voice you will hear. If your master is prosperity, self-love and faith, then that is the voice you will hear. Find and choose your master and then listen well!
