10 Steps to Turning Your Life Around
Never let fear keep you from speaking up. God hasn't given you a spirit of fear, but has imbued you with power, love, and a good, sound mind to give voice to your dreams, visions, ideas, and thoughts. So what if you miss the mark with a speech or message? So what if you stumble a bit, mumble, or stutter? Find your voice. Work on your diction. Work on your timing. Work on your voice, presentation, substance, and style. Speak up.
Steps to Speak Up
- Pray and listen to God's leading and direction right now. Ask God to help you to "open your mouth and increase your territory" (prayer of Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:10).
- Prepare what you are going to say and then practice articulating your message clearly.
- Embrace a bold and courageous attitude.
- Speak up and create an environment and legacy for others to speak up. Start working with those around you.
