The best advice I ever received was, “speak your mind.”
I would like to refer to myself as a suitcase person. I believe that life is more fun when you move around. So I made a vow to myself that I will study in three different Universities in my lifetime and around South Africa. So my journey began in 2007. One of the good days in the future, I would love to be the Editor in chief of a well-established magazine or Group CEO for communications at a well-established Media House.
On my way to the second destination, I experienced shitty services from this bus company named “GRAYHOUND”, but I did not let it bring me down. I am a person that always looks at the positive and try my best to always smile. You may find me as arrogant or anything but my question still stands. Why do I have to keep quiet? This is how I am and there is nothing that I or you can do about it. “Please keep your voice down it annoys me” this guy on the bus said to me. My response to him was simple and clear. “It’s not my fault that you can’t afford to buy yourself ear plugs“
I am very opinionated and speak my mind at the exact time when I feel to do so. I believe that my voice can take me wherever I want and I can make as much business deals as I can. I aim to be seen as a hardworking, enthusiastic and an intellect that stands up for what’s right. “I believe that the public has the right to know, and it will start here with me.
So, why should I abstain from speaking my mind at the time that suits me? Why should I keep quiet?
