How to Cut Through the Noise with Your Voice

How to Cut Through the Noise with Your Voice

“All the NOISE!”

Sometimes I feel like I’m reenacting The Grinch in that one scene where he says…. “All the noise, noise, noise, NOISE,” and he’s got drumsticks banging on his head.

And I don’t mean just noisy sounds. I’ve got a lot of that too. If it’s not “mommy, mommy, mommy,” or Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on TV, it’s my husband’s racing shows, or my dog barking, or downtown construction, or sirens, or… you get the idea.

What I’m referring to is what I see and read in my social feeds, in my inbox, in my browser dashboard, in my notifications all the livelong day. All day, every day we consume A LOT of noise. 

on’t get me wrong, I do enjoy learning from others and listening to them speak their truths. I’m an avid listener and reader of all kinds of opinions and philosophies. But if the message I’m getting is rooted in fear-based tactics or manipulative ploys or downright deception, that’s when I’m like… bye. 

How to Cut Through It

The problem is that all of this noise can really get in our heads. Whether it’s simply due to the volume of content out there, or due to more disingenuous forms of provocation that exist online, sharing your voice can be pretty intimidating and even scary. 

This is what I deeply, whole-heartedly and completely believe though: I believe that if you’re truly coming from a place of full authenticity, and really owning who you are, where you’ve been and how you can help others, you’ll shine no matter what. 

People can feel it. Vibes are real. We KNOW when someone is not speaking their truth. And if I’m going to be bold, (which I will, because that’s who I am now), I’m going to take this a step further and say that MAGIC happens when we’re living authentically. Things just happen and things just flow.

When you use your voice, or the anchor of your work as I call it, instead of drums beating on someone’s head, it sounds totally different. It sounds like a beautiful song. It’s refreshing and real. It’s you.

So that leads me to the question: How can you express yourself more authentically with your voice?
