On this week’s GoalChatLive, host Debra Eckerling discusses Honoring Your Voice with Stacia Crawford from Stay Ready Media; actor, voice over artist, and educator David H Lawrence XVII, Narrate Your Own Book; and screenwriter/author/professor Richard Walter, Deadpan.

The trio, who work in various aspects of storytelling (PR, voiceover, and writing), talk about the power of words, owning your voice, and more.

Your Voice
– Stacia: Your voice is the words swimming around in your head. Speak in a way that resonates
– David: Have the courage to know your voice is enough. Pauses are better than filler words; let your words land
– Richard: Often what you don’t say is more powerful than what you do say. Voice is text and subtext, what you hear and what you mean; your voice is what compels observers to interact with you

How to Honor Your Voice
– David: Your voice is far better than you think it is;  humanness is much more valuable
– Richard: Stop striving for perfection
– Stacia: Make sure you have something worth saying; practice make perfect

– David: Reframe how you look at your voice
– Richard: Allow yourself to get distracted
– Stacia: Stop worrying about what other people think; your voice, your message, is unique to you

Final Thoughts
– Richard: Art is important. It’s not an add-on or an extra. It is an essential. It’s really at the core of the human experience.
– Stacia: Keep talking. Keep shining your light, because you are unique, you’re different, and you bring massive value to the world.
– David: When trying something new, there are three fears that you can overcome. The fear of the unknown. The fear of failure. And the fear of success.
