In a society where self-expression is the key to everything, having the courage to speak up is more important than ever. We’ve got video, social media, facetime chats… everything requires you to speak up. But how are your clients going to find you if they can’t hear you? How are you going to get that raise if you don’t ask for it? While this is a huge can of worms to open, for now, let’s just look at why we don’t speak up and the two key reasons behind it.

1. CREATING SPACE FOR OTHERS

Firstly, by not speaking up you can create space for others to learn from their mistakes. For instance, you could speak up and warn someone that by doing it THAT way, they could get in trouble or make a mistake. But are they the type of person who would actually listen to you? Allow them to learn by experience.

2. YOUR FEARS

And secondly, the biggest and most common reason why you don’t speak up… is fear.
Fear that you:

  • will be misinterpreted
  • will be unloved or unliked
  • won’t be respected for what you have to say

Fear from:

  • past experiences
  • emotional bias
  • your own insecurities

It is only in addressing these fears through a personal growth journey of Self Awareness, Radical Self Love & Courage can you truly stand up and speak up without holding back.
