Fearless communication is a way of being that can come about when we are able to express ourselves authentically. It’s about being able to deliver a direct and honest message without second-guessing or feeling small.
It’s a communication style that is based on trust, respect and integrity. It creates space for intimacy and also fosters accountability.
When we communicate fearlessly, we are in touch with our own needs and wants. We are clear about what we expect of ourselves and others. And we express ourselves accordingly.
You might be thinking to yourself that this is definitely something I wish I could do, right?
To understand the difference between fearless and fearful communication, it’s important to know where fear lives in our bodies. Fear is an emotion that is usually felt in the chest or gut. It’s a physical sensation that can rise up and take over quickly. Fear paralyses.
Is fear paralyzing you?
Fearful communication often happens when we allow our fear to take control. Instead of being present and speaking our truth, we speak from a place of fear. We might avoid eye contact, speak softly or quickly, and use hedging language. It’s hard to trust a message that is communicated from this place because it often lacks clarity and purpose.
“If I only could have the courage to string a direct and honest sentence together instead of babbling for 2 minutes whilst shaking inside.”
End of the story- no results, awful feeling inside and a mind that’s bombed with self-critic, shame and feeling useless.
Fearless communication is the opposite. It comes from a place of presence and truth. When we communicate from this place, our words and actions are aligned. We speak with confidence and clarity. It just feels good all over. No second guessing.
Here are some real examples you might relate to:
Fearless Communication at its best is liberating and empowering.
- Being able to say NO to whoever and feeling great inside
- Having the tools to build a direct and honest sentence without sounding aggressive
- Having the courage to speak from a place of vulnerability aka making clear requestions
- Presenting in front of a senior audience with confidence and excitement
- Communicating to anyone with clarity, ease and joy
