In case some of you don’t know I am writing a book and it will be be published later this year. If you would like to subscribe to my blog (Its free) and be the first to know when its ready to be purchased please click here. I thought it would be cool to leak out my introduction to give everyone a sneak peak. Feel free to comment or share it on social media to help get the word out. Thanks again for all your support!
In this book I want to talk about things that people don’t talk about. I want to talk about things that people ignore or just keep down inside them. I want to talk about things we are afraid to let out or feel that aren’t important enough to bring up. How maybe if we talked about them we would be judged or viewed as different. I don’t want this to be another cliché book that just motivates someone for a weekend and has no lasting effect. I want this to get to the core of people and make people think in a positive way. I want this to draw things out of people that they knew they had in them all along but maybe they’re just too scared to admit or talk about. I feel like I was created to write this and exploit it.
I was always afraid of being different. I wanted to be noticed but I was afraid of being too different where people might push me away. I have so many thoughts and memories in my head that I just want to write all these down before I forgot them all. We all have a story to share. We all have something to bring to the world through our unique gifts. I feel like mine was the gift of influence. And I would just be plain selfish if I didn’t use the gift that God gave me. Or maybe it is the fact that I’m scared that I will come to the end one day and realize I never used it to its full potential. Fear either paralyzes or it propels. And my good friend Gary once told me fear isn’t a good way to make decisions. I say my next couple sentences because I need to say it even though I don’t believe it all the time. I am here to influence. I am here to share my story and I am loved. I have the power to change the world one person at a time. We all do. I was meant to write this book.
I am scared to think what people might think of this book but I am willing to take the risk. We all have risks to take and I’m here to take one so others might be inspired to take their necessary risks in life, to jump when you don’t know what will happen next. Life is full of optical allusions that appear as dead end roads but in reality they are just choices to be made most of the time.
I’m here to say life does not suck. There is freedom to be had. There is peace in the uncertainty. Life doesn’t have to be dragged on just because others are moving forward. We can quiet the storms. We can stop for a minute and actually think what we are doing with our lives.
We were meant for greatness and to live fulfilling lives, to break chains that need to be broken and to love others when it’s not fair. We were meant to be vulnerable. The world needs it. Fear will no longer be the reason why I make decisions and why I won’t be vulnerable. Or at least I’m going to try it. I won’t let fear slow me down when the world tells me I can’t because it’ll waste time. There will be days and moments I fail in this, but God will correct my course. I don’t know where I’ll be in 10 years but I know there will be progress. I know God is working in me and through me. I am called to purpose. He has a plan for me. He has a plan for you. I’m here to enjoy the ride. Life is a work in progress. I have a story that is still unfolding, and I’m not even writing it. It’s about to get real, you ready?
