Marianne's Friday session 8am 21 February 2020: Get comfortable with being uncomfortable
How far are you willing to speak out and go out of your comfort zone? Have you ever protested or complained about something? Have you ever made a stand on something?
Luvvie Ajayit starts off by introducong herself as a professional troublemaker. She chooses to effect change is by speaking up, by being the first and by being the domino.
It isn't easy and people think that she's fearless, but she isn't. She feels like she has, because there are too few people in the world willing to be the domino, too few people willing to take that risk.
She describes a few adventurous things that she did, taking her out of her comfort zone. Have you ever done this?
To sum up. she asks herself three things: 1. Did you mean it? 2. Can you defend it? and 3. Did you say it with love? If the answer is yes to all three, she says it and let the chips fall.... Telling the truth - telling thoughtful truths - should not be a revolutionary act.
