Finding your voice is essential in today’s interconnected world. Many of us feel we don’t know what we want to say, or that we simply have nothing new to contribute.
In speaking with many people, it actually seems that it is not that we don’t have anything to say, we more lack the confidence in ourselves to share what we really believe.
So much in life we are told how we are wrong, our mistakes are highlighted not our successes, and over time it is easy to develop a voice in our heads that questions everything we think and say.
But the world needs our voice, our truth, our unique perspective.
In deciding whether to share our voice we should not so much look at the absolute “rightness” or “wrongness” of what we are about to say, but if we focus on whether it feels right to us.
Chances are, if it feels right to you, not matter how crazy it might seem at first, it will resonate with others. In fact, the crazier it seems, the more it will mean to other people that you took the chance to share it with the world.
Communicating your message is not so much about being a holder of absolute truth, but about letting others know that it is okay for them to share what is deep inside of their soul.
Let’s live an example. Be the voice you always wanted to hear.
