Do you struggle with expressing yourself in front of people?
Are you afraid of saying the wrong things and making mistake while speaking?
Have you noticed yourself sometimes that you want to say something but couldn’t say it?
I know it happens with a lot of people.
It’s embarrassing and annoying when you can’t say what you want to say.
But, have you ever thought about why do you struggle with that?
Just the other day I was talking with one of my clients and we were doing some exercise together.
She was speaking something and suddenly she stopped and said: “oh, it’s not funny”.
I said “how do you know if it’s funny or not?” you didn’t even finish your sentence yet.
Did you notice something?
It’s self-judgement which stops you from expressing yourself.
It’s YOU who is holding yourself back by judging yourself.
No one is perfect and no one says the right thing, at the time, and at the right place every time.
Trying to be perfect and saying the right things all the time can stop you from saying anything AT ALL.
If you want to be a good speaker, memorise words, use scripts and prepared lines.
But if you want to be an amazing speaker, be authentic and don’t judge yourself.
Share your thoughts and ideas like it MATTERS and believe that whatever you have to say is valuable.
