“Victory comes from finding opportunities in problems” Sun Tzu

I’ve shared this quote before and things get more and more challenging out there, it can be hard to use the peripheral to see where the opportunities might actually come from.

Perhaps it’s time to up-skill, maybe it’s time to have a look at starting something for yourself but where to start? And, can you actually articulate what it is you are wanting?

Not being able to find the words you need to describe what you want or having the confidence to speak in any situation can have a real impact on your mental health and overall well-being. There’s nothing worse than feeling too frightened to speak up and be heard. 

Even  if you don’t have a leadership role per se in your work life, we are all leaders of our own lives in one way or another. Whether you get nervous speaking to people, presenting to groups, or English is your second language, it can be hard to get your voice heard. Anxiety is also an all too familiar feeling when speaking for many. Luckily, we’ve come up with a set of skills and strategies to help you regain your confidence through speech and voice development to teach you how to say it clearly for life. 

  1. It starts with having the parts of your body that you need for speaking, relaxed. Shoulder rolls, relaxing your jaw, practising a smile, then frown and back to a smile; can get your face relaxed and ready for the next step which is correcting your posture. Making sure your ears are above your shoulders is the easiest way to do this. 
  2. It’s learning the most effective way to use the full capacity of your lungs as well as controlling the outflow of your breath. Showing you how to do this requires too many words so go on to the books & courses page and have a look at the free video.

When we can find our voice and find the words to go with that voice, to stand up for our worth, the changes in this world could be huge. Perhaps like the butterfly effect theory. One small, positive word or change in behaviour will cause the same somewhere out in the world, and on it will go. Positivity breeds positivity.

Which leads me to this – 

If you are looking for something new, a business that involves coaching and training that is both ‘in real life’, has online courses producing income, as well as the 3 books on Amazon, get in touch as I am moving into a new era, and will be leaving Say It Clearly behind. This has been my life’s work, truly, from 6 years old I’ve been involved in speech and voice, so I’m not taking this lightly. I will be there from the starting conversation (or email) for all  the handover time needed, plus I’m open to a joint venture. Many options!
