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

 

 

 

 

Commentary:

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!
