Who do you listen to?

This past Sunday, the pastor came out on the stage with a set of noise cancelling headphones and a pair of earbuds.  He used these to make a great point.  The pastor made the comment “who you listen to affects what you do”.

With the earbuds, we hear EVERYTHING.  The friend or family member who cares enough to point out the truth can be heard along with all of the other noise.  All those people who are telling you what you want to hear instead of what you NEED to hear.  The truth.

We hear this in our business all the time.  Choose your associations carefully.  Be careful who you spend your time with.  Watch what you listen to.  Because “who you listen to affects what you do”.

And what you do affects who you become.

Always remember:  “Who you listen to affects what you do”.

God Bless and have a great day!
