Let’s face it!
There’s nothing comfortable about feeling uncomfortable every time you open your mouth.
It’s itchy, scratchy, and awful sticky all over your body.
But in order to have a voice, we must use our voice. And our voices can’t be so low that no one hears them.
In today’s world, if you want to be heard, whether at home, in the workplace, or even in the middle of Main Street, you have to speak up!
Want to be successful in life? Speak UP!
I tend to be a loud person, and I get things done. I don’t cower when the time comes to demand my space on this planet.
I wouldn’t cower if it became time to demand your due either. In my opinion, Equal Opportunities For All rules!
Personally, I believe we can all do better when it comes to getting what we want in our lives, and in our world.
No hate speak necessary!
What it requires is knowing, and saying what that is in a way that is clearly understood – hopefully the 1st time.
Interestingly enough, I’ve been told many times that I say what many people are only thinking.
Did I mention I get things done?
Personal injustices can no longer be tolerated.
Who’s with me on this statement?
Will there be consequences? Sure will. Either way, loud or quiet, there will be consequences. Sure will.
Can those consequences serve you? Serve me? Serve us all?
These are the questions when asked & answered, serve us on purpose!
I was watching a TED Talk the other day, and listened to this young lady by the name of Luvvie Ajayi.
She is an excellent speaker, who doesn’t mince her words. My sista!
She’s also funny.
She refers to herself as a domino, who doesn’t mind being the first to start a chain reaction in order to effect change.
She proudly stands by her claim of being a professional trouble maker. She critiques the world, and its clinky, clanky, systems, AND people who refuse to do better.
And this is the way she defends her “side-look” position.
She says: “Before I say anything, I ask myself three questions.”
Do I mean it?
Can I defend it?
Am I saying it with love?
What’s your stance? Are you a peacekeeper who’d rather say nothing than to start something that could get ugly before it gets better???
I’m not here to judge. I simply like to spark up certain thought processes as I suspect what I’m soap boxing about here, has crossed your mind a time or two.
What serves you personally?
