How to Find Your Authentic Voice?

Finding your voice means stepping into your true authentic power. It’s how you show up daily, in front of others and behind closed doors. It’s the courage to stand up for what you believe despite how others might perceive you.

What could be holding you back from finding your voice?

The number one cause for anyone not to express their voice is fear.

Fear of:

  • Rejection

  • Being disliked

  • Not being good enough

  • Opinion not being valuable

  • Not knowing enough

  • Looking stupid

  • Upsetting others

  • Being laughed at

  • Annoying others

And the list goes on.

If this list resonates with you, don’t be alarmed, you are not alone.

But, there is so much benefit in finding your voice and stepping into your power.

When you finally step into your power and reclaim your voice, you will gain self-confidence, self-love and self-respect. It will also help improve your mood, anxiety, depression and overall mental well-being. Finding your voice means living from a place of authenticity rather than people pleasing.

You are a unique being and offer a unique perspective to this world - your voice should be heard loud and clear.

How can you find your voice?

Get to know yourself.

  • Spend time alone

  • What do we do when we want to get to know someone? We spend one-on-one time with them. We spend quality time with them. Getting to know yourself is no different.

  • Journal your values

  • Knowing your true life values is essential in staying authentic to yourself. Your values dictate what is acceptable and what is not in your life.

  • Find your passions in life and do more of that.

  • Our passions spark joy in us, and operating from a joyful mindset cultivates self-love, self-respect and self-confidence.

  • Meditate

  • Calming your mind will allow you to see things more clearly.

Flip your fear statements around

  • Instead of “I am not good enough,” say: “I am enough.”

  • Instead of “my opinion is not valuable,” say: “I have a unique perspective.”

  • Instead of “I will upset others,” say: “I’m not responsible for others’ reactions.”

  • Instead of “I don’t know enough,” say: “It’s okay to be wrong.”

Practice the art of none judgement

Art of non-judgment starts with yourself.

  • Start by catching any negative or critical self chatter.

  • Don’t believe negative thoughts about yourself.

  • Counter the negative thought with a positive thought immediately.

  • With practice, you will start to view yourself through a love lens.

Be honest with yourself
