What you need to hear

Many times, what you need to hear is not what you want to hear. Yet when you pay heed to what you need to hear, it can make a positive difference in the direction of your life.

It can be painful to hear an uncomfortable truth about yourself. It can also be highly useful, and even transformative.

Is there something you’ve been avoiding admitting to yourself, something you need to hear? Go ahead, put it into words, and then get busy doing something positive about it.

Do you resent others who have attempted to tell you what you need to hear? Let go of the silly resentment, listen carefully, and then move forward with newfound strength.

Truth is powerful and it can also be uncomfortable, inconvenient, embarrassing and troublesome. Truth is worth the trouble, however, and when you’re willing to accept the truth it will add great effectiveness to whatever you’re doing.

Go ahead, be strong, and listen to what you need to hear. Put yourself on the bright, clear side of truth, and move forward more positively than ever before.

— Ralph Marston
