The Voice: Making Yours Heard

There’s one lesson I’ve learned more than any other lately. And it’s this: JUST ASK. How many moments in life pass you by when you can’t muster the courage to just ask those questions? Asking who a person is, asking if you can be a part of something, and asking if you can do something. I realize how vague this sounds so let me clarify.

I’m sure you’ve been there before. You’re at a party and you see someone you want to meet. Instead, you introduce yourself to your coconut shrimp and make small talk with your champagne all night. Or you hear about an amazing opportunity to travel to a foreign country. Instead of filling out an application, you fill out an update on Facebook. Or you want to audition for that show you’ve dreamt about but instead of showing up, you settle down at home with a bag of popcorn and a chick flick you’ve already seen 10 times.

It’s self-sabotage. Maybe even the mildest form of social suicide. And yet we commit it every day. Our guts, or lack thereof, gets the best of us. We choke in the moment that it is most important that we speak.

So in honor of the recent winner of the Voice, Javier Colon, I’m encouraging you today to find “your voice.” Make yourself heard! No one will pay attention to you if they can’t hear you to begin with. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. There’s no such thing as asking a stupid question, but there is such a thing as being stupid enough to not ask.

Just ask.

Keep shining,
