Whose Voice Counts?

Putting yourself out there is hard.

The homeowner is told: "You shouldn't comment. You don't have experience."

The investor is told: "You shouldn't comment. You don't have any formal training in real estate."

The real estate student is told: "You shouldn't comment. You don't have your real estate license."

The licensed salesperson is told: "You shouldn't comment. You aren't a broker."

The broker is told: "You shouldn't comment. You're not an attorney."

The attorney is told: "You shouldn't comment. You're not the 'right kind' of attorney."

The specializing attorney is told: "You shouldn't comment. You're not a judge or a jury."

The judge is told: "You should recuse yourself. You are biased on the matter."

Leadership isn't waiting for permission to speak. It isn't about who is right, but what is right... particularly in regards to solving problems and helping others in their hour of need.

There will always be haters, naysayers, and folks in this world who would suppress or diminish your contribution for fear of being discredited, losing power, losing influence, losing audience, or being confronted with a need to change... When you have valuable insight or experience to share, be brave. Perspective is not a zero-sum game. You never know whose life you might positively impact when you have the courage to contribute wisdom in the face of criticism. The world doesn't need more titles and pretense. The world needs substance.

Your voice counts.

Amanda Thomas had to laugh at your comment to Mr Banana - no he's not afraid to speak up!  And I totally agree - speaking up doesn't mean one needs to be a mean or a jerk or what so many folks these days seem to be doing. Speak up with respect and honor.
