To be honest, I am writing this first post as much to myself as to you. I need a shot of courage today as I find my own best voice on this new-to-me platform. Would you like to read over my shoulder as I lower the boom on fear?
Okay, here it goes.
There are actual flesh-and-blood people in this world who need what you, and ONLY you, bring.
Let me say it again because I want to be sure you hear it: People are literally waiting. for. you. They need YOUR voice, whether you are a speaker, singer, actor or advocate. People need you to start showing up today. The world needs your voice in the arena. And nobody–not one person alive–can bring what you bring at this moment in history. Now.
Let that sink in.
How does this news hit you today? Maybe your fear has forced you into a smaller story. Maybe you’ve bought the lie it’s selling that you don’t have any redeeming qualities at all. The limiting beliefs and lies you’ve agreed to for years about yourself don’t negate the reality that you have a larger role to play in the greater Story. You aren’t too old. You aren’t too young. Your chance hasn’t passed you by, and you certainly don’t need to get more information, time, experience or money.
Find the courage to start.
Finding your voice in this noisy world feels daunting, doesn’t it? Do a brief Google search and you can find many people doing the very thing you are wanting to do. They are bravely saying the thing you are wanting to say. Some are even excelling at the very thing you feel strongly about doing yourself. You read about them, see them, hear them, and you feel intimidated to even try. Please believe me when I say I totally understand! But I’m here to remind you today that this is YOUR story, not theirs. You only get one crack at it. And believe it or not, even if there is somebody in the same space you see yourself in, the world still desperately needs what YOU and ONLY YOU can bring.
Your gifting makes room for you in the world.
The book of Proverbs says that your gifting makes room for you in the world. It opens doors so that you are brought before kings. The kicker? You have to actually be willing to be visible to get into that space of ‘brought before’. You have to position yourself. You have to take that first step towards stepping out, being seen, being heard. You have to actually start.
The world is waiting for us to start, friend. It is waiting for us to show up. Period. Your gift will make room for you, but first you must try. You can do this and so can I. Here I go…I am here at The Voice Love Co., ready to help you in your journey with resources, encouragement and a good dose of taking it up to the next level vocally no matter which arena you are about to enter.
The world is waiting for what you are going to bring it. Let me help you start to believe that you CAN today…
