You Should Speak Up Even When You Think You Shouldn't 

By Ange Fonce 

Are you one to sit back quietly? 

You may be hurting yourself and others.

The art of communication is not mastered by just knowing what to say and how to say it. 

A big factor is knowing when to say it... so often people sit back and say nothing when something really needs to be said...  It could be an idea, a suggestion... an observation... a criticism... and for some reason they do not want to speak up.

They may be afraid of hurting another person... looking mean or foolish... or opening a can of worms that will make a mess in everyone's lives... sometimes it seems like staying silent is the wiser choice. 

Silence Is Deemed As Approval... 

You may think that staying silent keeps you from being involved in any conflict... yet it is quite the opposite. 

Silence is as much an active form of communication as talking... anytime you are involved in a situation... people are aware of all the input and lack of it. 

If you disapprove and do not say anything it will not make you seem easy going.. if the problem persists and you did nothing people may consider it as enabling and think the issue is as much your fault as the person who actually caused the problem. 

You may destroy trust and create resentment. 

People rarely thank you for withholding information down the line.

The worst case scenario if you speak up is that someone may disagree... and at least the issue is at the forefront and an active decision can be made. 

The best case scenario is that everyone benefits and you are hailed as the hero.

Speaking Up Is An Important Form Of Honesty... 

Honesty actually builds trust, especially when combined with tact and empathy. 

Demonstrate that you will be truthful with people... that you care about them... and that you give positive advice and you will never lack for trusting friends and followers.

Gather up your confidence and share.

Thank you and may you enjoy a Prosperous and Dynamic day!
Yours Sincerely
