“Why would anybody want to listen to me?”
“Who am I to give my opinion?”
“What qualifies me to have a say on this matter?”
Have you ever asked yourself questions like these? Have your answers to these types of questions ever kept you from speaking up?
Do you believe that it’s necessary to become more than what you already are before you can offer your two cents?
Here’s today’s two cents:
Let your words speak for themselves.
If you say something that adds value to people’s lives, they wont care about what neighborhood you grew up in or what college you didn’t attend. On the other hand, if you waste their time, bragging about your degrees and qualifications won’t make them change their mind about you.
The majority of hardworking and suffering people don’t have the time, money, or energy to squander their resources on gimmicks that don’t produce results. People want answers to their questions and solutions to their needs. If you believe there’s the slightest chance that what you have to say may make a difference, then put it out there.
Don’t let questions about personal worthiness play a part in your equation. Instead of trying to become worthy, find something that feels like it’s worth saying, say it, and let the chips land where they fall.
People will listen or they won’t. Either way, it wont have anything to do with how “worthy” you are.
