This is a Collection of my writing to find my voice and how to help others find theirs through the art of blogging.
Have you heard the saying “Your actions speak louder than words”?
I want you to walk this through with me. What actions do you take when you are voicing your opinion. What do you do when you want to get attention?
I know, I know. You jump up and down or raise you hands high in the air. Was I right? Well if we could do that on paper and get our readers to know that, we both have it made.
Who are we?
Have you ever started to sell something and come right out with it and got shot right down by the other person? It can really blow you away.
Well that happened to me. I thought I knew what I was doing, I had my questions ready. I started in and it was over before I knew it. Only thing left to say was “what just happened”. I was flabbergasted gassed. I was stunted. Wow, what a lesson.
So how do you speak?
This post is going to make you think. I want you to imagine and think about your day. How have you interacted with others? Then who it is that you want to target!
Whether you were just passing them or standing in a line, did you nod, say hello or look down and pass them by? When you answered the phone, was your voice irritable or pleasant? When you had lunch with a friend, how was your conversation? Was it happy and exciting?
Then when you were talking with a potential client, did your voice change, did your persona change? Did you turn into someone else?
So you ask, what does reading have to do with finding your voice!
With this exercise I want you to pick your favorite books. Do you have a favorite author? Let’s take five books or bloggers that you follow and evaluate them. Let’s look at similarities and differences, and what makes you want to come back.
Who influences you in your life, in your upbringing, in your job, and in anywhere that you like to hang out?
As we travel throughout our day, most of us are around other people, it’s kind of hard to miss them, people are everywhere. But who do we interact with can really determine what kind of a voice that we have. Do you dress differently for where you go and what you are doing? Your voice comes from inside and shows on the outside.
Do you have certain people you always interact with?
Have you ever asked others what your voice is? Most of the time, getting a person from the outside to help you will give you a better understanding of who you are.
