You are never going to find your voice until you start exercising it.
If you want to find your voice, you need to start talking. You need to start sharing what you know, what you believe, and what your experience has taught you. Until you start talking, until you start hear what comes out of your mouth, your heart, and your mind, you won’t know what’s really in there.
I have seen dozens of people find their voice through Toastmasters. It awesome to see someone transform from quivering, fear-racked mortal to master and commander in the course of ten speeches. You can easily do the same.
You will find your voice when you start writing. You have no idea how much you have buried deep in the crevices of your mind and even deeper in your gut. If you don’t write, you don’t really even know what you think. The act of writing sets your voice free. And it frees all the ideas, beliefs, and values you have trapped inside.
You can start writing now. You don’t even have to write for someone; you can just write for yourself. Sit down with a blank screen and blinking cursor and tap on the keys. Write whatever comes into your mind. Don’t censor yourself. Write, and write, and write and you will find something inside you.
If you want to find your voice, go looking for it by speaking and writing. I promise it’s in there, and it will reveal itself to you when you do the work.
