This is one of my favorite posts on the internet. These are 6 great tips and reminders to having you taking up space in and out of competition. Whether you’re presenting a presentation or looking to take up space on a big game day.

6 WAYS TO ALLOW YOURSELF TO TAKE UP SPACE

1️⃣ Put your shoulders back – Stand tall. No slouching. No keeping to yourself in the corner. This is where those power stances come in and you claim your space, wherever you may be.

2️⃣ Remind yourself that you belong here – Your presence here on this earth is not accidental, so don’t allow yourself to be sheepish about your place any longer. If you’re in the room, you belong there. If you’re trying to get into the room, tell yourself you belong there.

3️⃣ Talk slower – No need to rush through your words. What you have to say is important, and shouldn’t be hurried along. Say what you want to say slowly with confidence. Own it.

4️⃣ Stop saying sorry – Don’t apologize for taking up someone’s time. Don’t apologize for little mess-ups. You’re human, and you aren’t perfect. You don’t need to apologize for that.

6️⃣ Speak up and speak out – Your voice should be heard. Whatever passion you have, let it be known. Whatever your opinion, speak up and tell the world about it. When someone is doing something inappropriate, share that so the problem can be fixed. The thing that will move you forward in owning your space, are hard conversations. Though scary to think about, they will catapult you to where you belong.
