Why is it hard for me to speak loud and clear?
Why not try getting speech or elocution lessons from a professional? All you probably need to do is speak slower, be careful to pronounce each word separately and clearly. A good teacher could help you with that.
You just have a soft spoken voice.
Not Really a Doctor
I'm willing to bet that half of the problem isn't your voice, it's their hearing. Some of it is the 'paying attention' part. More people are so fixated on their phones plus keeping earbuds in all the time can damage the inner ear. They might not realize you are talking to them, at least not right away. After spending my whole life living and working with people with hearing loss, I've had to learn a few things; Get their attention before you start talking. Make eye contact and be sure they can see your lips moving. Begin with the most important part of what you are trying to say. Long intros like, "the other day I was walking down the street...'' loses your audience immediately. Start with the big bold headline, then go for the details once you determine they are listening and care about your story. Find and exercise your voice by singing. You don't have to be good, you just have to learn how to listen to your own voice. Look up some basic vocal techniques on youtube. "Who" is right, opera singers learn how to project their voices. Hundreds of years ago they had to sing to the back row, before microphones made it easier. It's also good exercise.
They’re probably just not listening properly
strange as it may seem - cos you are trying to speak "loud" you dont need to speak "loud" in order to be heard - you need to speak in a "penetrating" voice that "projects" what you say ever heard people sing in operas? - they dont sing "loud" but they sing in a voice that "carries" across the audience so they all hear it without the aid of microphones and amplifiers Its likely you will need some sort of coaching to be able to do this - but once you can you will be able to talk only slightly louder that what you do normally but everybody will be able to hear it (it aint really louder- it just as you speak it sort of "resonates" in your head - when you can do it you will know what I mean)
Speak slow and make sure your tongue is working properly when you talk.
Prob because your pis.sed all the time.
Slow down when you speak that way the words will become clearer & not be run together
Yes. I think it's bullshit too.
Probably you're not projecting your voice properly. You shouldn't have to shout. Actors can't shout for three hours every evening; they learn to project. I learned too, as a teacher. Practise relaxing your throat muscles. If they are too tight, they'll be stressed and your voice will suffer. By the way, people don't 'tell' you 'what?' - they SAY, or ASK, 'what?'

Speak slower and project your voice.

UPDATE: I don’t think I’ve ever had any vocal problems before
