If You Want To Succeed, Stop Being Afraid Of Your Own Voice

If You Want To Succeed, Stop Being Afraid Of Your Own Voice

If you want to succeed, if you want to change your life, if you want to truly achieve your dreams, then you must not be afraid of your own voice. You must not be afraid to speak up and ask for what you want or demand what you deserve. You must not be afraid to stand up for yourself. You must use your voice because this is your superpower. This is your weapon against any injustice or blame or disrespect.

If you want to shine, stop being afraid of your talent. Stop brushing it aside, stop being afraid of criticism or what people may think or how perfect it should be before you release it. Stop being afraid of taking the first step because you don’t know where it will take you. You are not here to just get by, you are not here to just do the bare minimum, you are not here to live like you don’t have a say in how your life goes or what kind of life you should be living.

If you want to find real love, stop biting your tongue every time someone treats you poorly or hurts you. Stop keeping things to yourself because you don’t want to lose this person. Stop letting things slide because you don’t know what kind of mess your words will create. It’s actually the ultimate test to see how much someone wants you or what their true intentions are because some people only love you as long as they can have their way but when you want things to go your way for a change, that’s when you’ll see their true colors.

Because your voice will not always be heard and you may not always get the results you want from speaking up but trust me nothing kills you inside more than silence especially when it comes to the things that matter most to you. Nothing hurts more than knowing your words could have made a difference, it could have brought you more happiness or spared you a lot of pain and suffering. Nothing hurts more than knowing you have a powerful voice that you didn’t use when you had the chance.

Don’t let anyone tell you that your voice doesn’t matter or it won’t change anything because it can and it will. Eventually, your voice will be heard and people will listen to you. Eventually, your life will be dependent on you only and that’s when your voice will be your superpower. Stop being afraid of your own voice. Stop being afraid of how far that voice can take you and how much your words can change your life. Stop being afraid of your own voice and learn how to make it your favorite sound.
