Speech Is Power: Make A Positive Impact!How to present yourself and your offer more successfully
Speech is power: speech is to persuade, to convert, to compel.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Speech is power!
Yes, and power has a close relationship to responsibility. The responsibility how to use this power and also the responsibility to use it when you have to. Knowing that something needs to be improved means to stand up for it and therefore to use the power of speech.
How about responsibilities?
Most people do not really want freedom because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility. Many really honest and respectful people let those more intrusive people persuade the masses. Even though they know better, they hold back with their opinion and their offers. It is not only important for them to speak up but for all. This leads to many disadvantages because we never hear the thoughts of those who don’t speak up. This is sad and it is also irresponsible. With the words of Moliere: It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do.
Speech is power!
I have a dream
Not every speech wants to change the world and not any that wants to change it will deliver a tangible contribution. But sometimes it would be nice to help shape things, right? It is good to know how to make a positive impact when it is time to stand up. Speech is power!
In case you believe everything around you is like you want it to be and it will consist without any support, you are in a luxurious situation. Enjoy it! In case you want to make the world a better place, be prepared. Train your most impactful tool; your power of speech.
Respect and empathy
Personally, I believe that every argument needs a healthy amount of respect and empathy. I guess you know how to do that because you already filter yourself when speaking with people you care about. If you said every thought that popped into your head, there is a good chance you may not have as many friends as you do now, and the same principle extends to political discussions. You have to grasp that other people may have experienced different and more difficult hardships that you may not have faced yet, or maybe never will. Jump into their perspective and explore it, speak their language. Say what you want, anywhere you want as long as you do it with empathy. Empathy is what makes us human.
Let me support you
Train your most impactful tool; your power of speech and use it with respect. You are given a choice of how you use the power of speech. With great power comes great responsibility, use it respectfully and I will support you to present yourself and your offer successfully.
