Chapter 7: Boldness!

[#WhatsYourMessage Day 17]

“Selfish Reasons”

One thing we have to think about when sharing our message is the boldness to spread it.

The most difficult thing for me when I was starting to share my Fired Up Life message was having to create videos. It wasn’t even about the technical stuff or editing. It was more of the thought, “Am I really going to subject myself out there for criticism?”

I realized that my worries of being judged was based on selfish reasons. It meant that I would rather not put my message out there because I was too conscious or shy or fearful.

“Moral Obligation”

But then I reflected deep and hard. I came to this conclusion: “If my message is important and it will help many people, why will I let my own personal doubts and fears get in the way?”

Here are my convictions:

  •  My message is God-given.

Fired Up Life is a gift given to me, and my duty is to be a good steward of that gift. I have to multiply its fruits and spread it, so it will reach as many people.

  • I have a “moral obligation” to spread it.

I heard this from Russel Brunson, “I honestly feel like I have a moral obligation to share my message, because it’s changed my life and I know it can do the same for others as well.”*

If your own message has changed your life, why will you deprive others of this opportunity? Brunson quotes Jay Abraham to emphasize this point:

“If you truly believe that what you have is useful and valuable to your clients, then you have a moral obligation to try to serve them in every way possible.”

  • It will bring me to my passion zone

When I’m “comfortable” I feel relieved at first, then I become lazy, then I become really sad (and depressed). Being in my comfort zone does not excite me, and honestly, it takes the life out of me. I do what I do because I believe in it. It’s never easy and it’s never comfortable, but it is meaningful. Spreading my message brings me from my comfort zone, into my passion zone. That’s where I constantly want to be.

Spreading my message requires boldness, and so will yours.

What are your fears? Why do you “fear” what you fear?

Your message is bigger than your fears, and you have the moral obligation to spread it.

“It’s not about you”

When you find your message and you feel a great passion for it, the focus will shift from you to others. At first, it is you who gets to be blessed by it, and then you have a responsibility to bless others with it.

Spreading your message is really a form of service, and it is this kind of service that makes life meaningful and joyful.

It’s about answering a call. You have been called to spread that message as a gift for others, whether it be business related, about spirituality, or about a skill you can teach.

Be bold for the sake of others. They need to hear your message.

Next, learn about leading other people who resonate with your message.
