It’s normal to hear voices when you live in Sherman Country. Someone’s yelling about the cold in the winter, the heat in the summer, or about their quality erections. It’s when you start to hear voices in your head that you may have to worry.

Right now, are you hearing voices?

If so, start to listen to what they’re saying. They may have some good ideas. In fact, some of my best ideas have come from the voices. Though, some of my worst ones have also come from those voices, but that’s beside the point.

The voices often guide me through life.

Here’s a perfect example of something I learned from listening to a voice from the inner sanctum of my brain:

Surround yourself with people who talk about vision and ideas, not about people.

I’m not a gossip. It’s not something I find particularly interesting. Now, get me in a room where people are talking about their creative visions and their crazy ideas? I’m hooked.

The Voices Make It Hard to Focus

Have you ever had voices direct you through the various things you do in life? Maybe it’s a warning that your mother gave you when you were four. Maybe it’s a word of encouragement your father gave to you in high school. Then again, it could be your boss’s voice echoing through your brain to remind you that you’ve got a lot of work to do and not a lot of time to do it.

With so many voices in my head, it’s hard to focus.

I’m sorry. I couldn’t hear you over the the little voice in my head saying, “What a load of crap.”

Of course, I’ve got random voices that don’t appear to be from anyone except my own wild imagination. Those are the scariest.

3 out of 4 voices in my head want to go to sleep. The other one wants to know if penguins have knees.

Do you think I listen to the three voices that want me to fall sound asleep? Of course not. I end up staying up until three AM because I’m going down a rabbit hole on the internet about the anatomy of a penguin.

Since I didn’t get enough sleep because of this thought, I’ll save you the same struggle. Penguins do have knees. In fact, their leg anatomy is almost the same as ours. We just don’t realize it because of the feathers covering most of their legs.

As for the other voices, we have to decide which ones we want to listen to. I’ll listen to my boss’s voice because it keeps me employed. The other ones can provide me with inspiration, but often, they show up after I’ve already made the wrong decision. Perhaps I need to work on that…

I told my psychiatrist that I’ve been hearing voices. He told me that I don’t have a psychiatrist.

Write down your ideas

The Voices in My Head Are Saying a LOT About You

I’m sorry. I couldn’t hear you over the little voice in my head saying, “What a load of crap.”

Have you had voices talk to you about the people who are actively involved in your life? Those voices are quite opinionated. If you say what those voices are saying out loud, you’re likely to insult someone.

If you’ve read a post on the internet, a voice may be telling you that the person is a liar. However, you can’t actually call the person a liar. If you do, all hell will break loose. You could end up getting cyber-bullied or even thrown off the platform.

If you’re listening to your boss go on and on, a voice may tell you that they need to shut the hell up. If you tell your boss to shut up, though, you could end up getting reprimanded or fired. It’s unlikely that your boss will buy the excuse, “I’m sorry, the voice in my head told me to tell you that.” That’s how you end up on a three-day psych hold, not that I’d know anything about that.

Telling anyone about the voices can be dangerous. When they’re talking about the people you’re reading about or standing in front of, it’s best to ignore the voices. Tune them out entirely.

The only voices you should be listening to are those that are providing you with sound advice, inspiration, or creative ideas. Those usually won’t get you into trouble. Well, unless the ideas are really out in left field. As such, you might want to write the ideas out and share them with a friend first. If your friend looks at you as though you’ve lost your mind, shove that idea aside.

Listening to the Voices (Some of Them)

“It is impossible to say how first the idea entered my brain; but once conceived, it haunted me day and night.” – Edgar Allan Poe

Once you get certain ideas in your head, it may be difficult to lose it until you’ve made it happen.

If you’ve driven through Sherman Country, you’ve likely seen a billboard or two about quality erections. Before you know it, you’ve thought about how your life could be drastically improved if you build a pole barn on your property.

I get it. There’s nothing better than a pole barn. After all, it is carefully crafted specifically to your needs. It can be a barndominium, a she shed, or a garage for all of your favorite toys.

Listening to some of the voices in your head can be a great way to move forward and live your best life.

Maybe the voices have told you that it’s time to invest in a new snowmobile. However, reality sets in with the conundrum of where you’re going to store it.

At Sherman Pole Buildings, we invite you to listen to more of the voices in your head because we can help to support them – especially when those voices are encouraging you to get a pole building.

Let us help you take some of your amazing ideas to the next level.
