7 Steps to Fearless Speaking

By Lilyan Wilder | Go to book overview

STEP SEVEN
Give the Gift of
Your Conviction

When you are inspired by some great purpose,
some extraordinary project, all your thoughts
break their bonds: your mind transcends limi-
tations, your consciousness expands in every
direction and you find yourself in a new, great,
and wonderful world. Dormant forces, facul-
ties, and talents become alive, and you dis-
cover yourself to be a greater person by far
than you ever dreamed yourself to be.

—PATANJALI

I believe everyone has something special to share. We may not be aware of it, but it is within us. Searching for what we find meaningful brings us a deeper sense of ourselves, an acknowledgment of who we are—particularly, uniquely. Sharing that depth with one person or a group of people helps us experience and believe what we are saying in a wholly new way. Sharing your conviction is the greatest gift you can give.Yet, when you reveal your deepest beliefs and reactions on a personal level, you allow yourself to be vulnerable. At the same time, you become stronger.When you express conviction, you:
1. Speak from the core of what is meaningful to you, and find acceptance or rejection of your beliefs.
2. Experience the strength that comes from that acceptance or rejection.
3. Move to a higher level of growth and achievement.
