Get Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable Says Luvvie Ajayi


“YOUR SILENCE SERVES NO ONE," says the writer, activist and self-proclaimed professional troublemaker.

Luvvie Ajayi isn't afraid to speak her mind, throw shade that elevates humanity and ultimately use her voice to uplift others. This Nigerian born award-winning author and speaker brought unfiltered thoughts to the TED stage to urge anyone who is on the fence about speaking up or quietening down, to rather lean into speaking up. Her comedic delivery makes this an uplifting talk that will get you laughing while challenging you to think critically.


Being the domino isn’t easy work but it is worth it. Here are the three questions Ajayi shares that you can keep in mind when speaking up about something with those you work with: 

1. Do you mean it?

2. Can you defend it?

3. Did you say it with love?
