What you have to say absolutely matters. This is true for every single person—including those with whom you disagree. Being heard for who you are—and contributing in a way that helps to move the conversation forward—is how we grow, as individuals and as societies. This is because when you step into that space and give yourself an authentic voice, you also give permission to other people to find their voice and speak their truth.
When people see that you’re delivering an authentic message, it’s contagious. When they sense that your voice is authentic, they begin to understand not only your message but also the fact that they have a space to have their own voices heard, and to make their own contribution to the conversation.
But if you’re not used to having a voice, it isn’t always easy to find the confidence to speak authentically.
You are probably someone who has a high level of professional skill or life experience that you wish to share with others through podcasting. You know your subject, but you’re still looking for complete clarity around your true message, in tandem with working to find your authentic voice, build your tribe, and create your legacy.
It is so easy for a person’s message to remain unspoken and unexpressed. As you move through life, repeatedly being told to fall into line, to be seen and not heard, to only speak when spoken to, and to not answer back, you become muted. Once this happens, you can either become too afraid to say what you want to say, or you no longer have access to the platform on which to say it.
Modern life hasn’t helped to reduce the old beliefs around “knowing your place.” The continuation of the effects of this toxic position can be seen on social media sites, where talking about what really matters to you can mean running the risk of being cancelled or trolled. This can make it even harder to feel confident about finding your voice, particularly when you’re facing an unknown public.
