Whenever you’re in a large or small group, professional or volunteer, and the opportunity arises to share your thoughts and opinions, do so!
When we silence our own voice by withholding our thoughts, we willingly hand over the ability to make or influence a decisions to those who do share their thoughts. We trade in our role as leaders and resign ourselves to passengers on a course someone will chart for us.
You have thoughts, insights, and ideas that could benefit those around you. However, they benefit no one, if they remain solely in your head.
