You’ve probably heard it said that we have two dogs inside of us that are fighting each other, and that whichever one we feed the most wins.
There’s some truth to this, although the reality is much deeper. For example, you have more than two dogs. You have two minds. You have two voices. You basically have two versions of your self.
For example, have you ever been trying to lose weight, but then someone puts a piece of cake in front of you, and you’re suddenly facing a moment of temptation?
One part of you wants the cake, and within seconds, a voice within you starts saying, “It’s okay if I eat this piece of cake now, because I’ll get right back on my diet tomorrow.” All the while, there’s still another voice saying, “Don’t eat that cake. Stick to your diet.”
The Voice of Your Conscience
Now extend this into other areas of your life, and it gets much deeper. How so? It’s because you’ll be dealing with issues that aren’t so easily discerned like the temptation to eat a piece of cake. Sometimes, there are things we think are good which are actually destructive.
For example, you might think the way you address problems with your kids is good, but in reality, you’re hurting them. You might think that your moodiness is helpful to you because it keeps others in line, but in reality, you’re acting like a child.
Yet, we still have that “voice of conscience” deep within us that’s telling us, “What you’re doing is not good,” and it’s that voice that needs to be turned up louder!
Developing Your Better Self
In order for you to really see growth and prosperity in your life, you’re going to need to develop your better self—to put it in charge while weaken your old self: that part of you that keeps you spinning your wheels in fruitlessness.
