Speaking our dreams, thoughts and goals out loud gives them power and intention.
We keep a lot to ourselves for the fear of failing or being judged. Or it could even be that we simply feel like we're not ready to share our aspirations with others.
But keeping things bottled up inside of us - both the good and the bad - can often hinder our progress and prevent us from reaching our full potential.
When we say something out loud, we bring it into the physical world and make it real. We make it tangible. By verbalizing our thoughts and goals, we make a commitment to ourselves to take action and work towards achieving them.
