I know the feeling. You have something terribly important to say. And you’ve played it back and forth in your head. But when the moment comes for you to speak it out loud – you freeze. Words come out as garbled bits of incoherent sentences which don’t articulate your thoughts well. You are dismayed by the way they sound, all sad and sorry.
Then it happens. Your confidence takes a precipitous fall.
You end up feeling all disgruntled and disappointed in yourself . As if a part of you has failed. Then come the questions and self doubt rushing in as air rushes in to suck up a void.
Does that sound familiar to you?
Yes. Failure is familiar. So is Misspoken sentences. Inarticulate thoughts . Lost opportunities .
But you know what it really means?..
Playing it in your head is just not enough.
You have to go out there and let your idea grow. Say it out loud to yourself. Feel the power of your words to change the world – or at least your own. You have to let your words be comfortable in their own skin.
If you have something important to say – don’t wait to say it till the last moment. Say it out loud to yourself – right now!
