The ripple effect of finding a confident voice…
After more than 80 episodes of this podcast I realized something. You can’t be a part of sharing this many stories without experiencing growth. And as I reflected on the many guests, I felt magnetized to one in particular from very early in the show’s history. “The lesson of the ripple effect of finding a confident voice” certainly seems appropriate at this moment. It seems only right to share it again. If you have heard this one already, I encourage you to listen to it again with fresh ears. And if its new to you, get ready for a powerful and entertaining conversation with Eduardo Placer, in which you will discover fearless communication — and the lion and the kitty. – Julie Chan
Eduardo Placer, Social Impact Entrepreneur, Motivational Speaker, Community Builder, and Founder/CEO of Fearless Communicators (a dynamic public speaking coaching business that empowers leaders and change-makers) – (bio), joins Julie Chan for a discussion of finding one’s voice, and a follow up to a prior full intuitive reading, at the MouthMedia Network Studio.
Placer reviews how he started as an actor, and how he realized we all have a voice and a story to share, and how owning a voice and story can allow us to make impact. How he found himself on stage, wondering if is this all he was called to do in life, with the answer growing louder. He discusses public speaking, how the body shows up to the event of speaking, working with a school in southern Kenya, an LGBTQ activist organization in southeastern Africa, working with women in business to help the with their voice, and endeavoring to arm fearless communicators across the planet to speak about things that can make a difference. Placer reveals how he is an introverted extrovert, the opportunity to discover the power of you through sharing through those with less self-confidence having an empathy different than someone who is a natural.
A conversation on where the voice is located, finding one’s voice, breathing and tension, and relieving jaw tensions and stretching. Intention, outcome and result, who are we being when speaking, what is the audience experiencing and feeling, and then the result. How we can choose to not be at mercy of inner dialogue we have of not being good enough, and how that dialogue is universal. Purpose and mission is being called to speak, we all have something important to say, are the unique person to share that, and present to that power. If the focus is on oneself, that focus is in the wrong place. Finding one’s voice, “powertalk”, and how to give amazing presentations. The movement of a supreme love community, radical supreme love. How when one does not have one’s voice and not speaking up makes one disappear. Our charge is to communicate, and how commitment must be bigger than concerns.
A follow up since the full intuitive purpose reading with Eduardo, being the lion, understanding where he stands in the chain of life, how his ferociousness can be overwhelming when unleashed, how the duality of being a lion and timid cat is his theme, battling the two and learning how to embrace the two. Eduardo reflects on what reading was like, how it has impacted, fearless sharing vs. timid sharing, moved out of scarcity context and moving into an abundance context. Leading the pride, just standing in the space of not being a selfish lion, needing the support of the pride, being unapologetic and owning the power, leading from a place of selflessness and abundance, showing up to serve, and making a difference.
