What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.
Who you are speaks so loudly I can’t hear what you’re saying.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson, US essayist and poet (1803 – 1882)

It addressed the profound impact of actions and authenticity on communication.
Have you ever felt pulled in different directions because of conflicting voices in your head, leaving you unsure of what to do? It is like standing at a crossroads and being bombarded with loud noises of thoughts, feelings, and desires, making it difficult to choose the right path.

Imagine you are at a career crossroads, torn between pursuing your passion and sticking with a stable job that provides financial security. Now, one voice is telling you to pursue your dream, while another is telling you to stick with your job because it is too risky and full of struggles and uncertainties.

In your mind, your opposing thoughts are like two teams competing for victory and power. One side represents your desire for fulfillment and passion, while the other wants you to be safe and financially secure.

Between all the noise, you hear questions like:
What if pursuing your passion leads to financial difficulties?
What if you choose stability, feel unfulfilled, and yearn for something more?

Know that this is a classic tug-of-war between the heart and the head. Causing you to worry about making the wrong decision, leaving you torn and confused.

Aside from your own internal voices, you probably have external voices telling you what to do. Their judgement and fears frequently exacerbate your conflicting thoughts, making it even more difficult for you to tune out the noise and listen to your own inner voice.

There are no one-size-fits-all solutions. You can always find a middle ground. Is it possible to turn your passion into a stable career, or vice versa? What risks are you willing to take while maintaining your safety net?

What are you going to give in return when you achieve your goals and dreams? Remember, you only get what you give. It is not always necessary to choose one over the other; sometimes finding a harmonious balance is enough.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. – Winston Churchill

Being a part of a Mastermind group of people who share your desire to be, do, and have will motivate you to reach your full potential. They help you gain clarity on your priorities, values, and the pros and cons of each choice.

The right Mastermind group teaches you to be authentic. So that your actions and words align, and our outward behavior reflects our inner life. To trust your instincts and make decisions that align with your values, goals, and dreams.

You will be encouraged to take one step at a time towards authenticity and aligning your actions with who you truly are. To embrace the journey, knowing that each step towards your definite major purpose quiets your voices and shapes not only what you do but also who you are.
