John O’Leary shares an excerpt from his instant bestselling book IN AWE to remind us to reflect on whose voice we are listening to.
Enjoy this excerpt from p. 21 of John O’Leary’s instant
national bestselling book IN AWE.
Whose voice are you listening to . . . and who says they’re right?
If the news as presented by the media is bringing you down, stop watching. If your friends and co-workers are too often naysayers, challenge them to change, or find new friends. And if the voice in
your head is whispering negativity, it’s high time to replace it with a new song.
What would happen if, when you are told you can’t do things or you can’t handle a certain task, you dared to disagree? To engage your sense of wonder and say: Says who?
Not like a petulant child, with disrespect for authority. But with a kind, curious, adventurous spirit, simply pushing back against or testing the limits.
Once we are no longer afraid to challenge the status quo, we’ll start to see possibilities around every corner.
