Voice lessons #30


 Tony Robbins is losing his voice.

 For those of you who don’t know him, Tony is a highly acclaimed motivational speaker. I believe he is losing his voice for a fantastic reason. He has taken his fiery passion for inspiring others and joyfully cheered so many people on to a better life that he is literally using his voice up!

 I am gradually losing my voice too. The doctor’s say I am hoarse because my thyroid gland is enlarged and pressing on my trachea. I know this to be true but I believe the real problem is that I have not pursued my own passion for motivational speaking in the way I had always dreamed of doing. The hoarseness is merely a symbol of my frustration with myself for not letting my voice be heard.


Tony may have used his voice too much.

I’ve used mine too little.


That’s going to change. I have two big speaking presentations scheduled in the fall and I know in my heart that, by then, I’ll be ready.

 We each have a unique voice in the world. It doesn’t necessarily have to be about speaking. It is whatever gifts we have to share. What is it that you are passionate about? Let your voice be heard today. Use it until you’ve used it up!

 You and the world will be better for it.

Let your spirit soar!
