Every person I’ve met has one thing in common: they want to be heard. By that I mean they want their voice, their lives, their insights to matter.
As we launch into a brand new year, I thought it would be appropriate to talk about how to take your stand and develop your own personal brand. This may seem unspiritual, but Jesus said that we are the light of the world and we are salt to our culture. At the very least, it means that our lives matter, that we have a message to offer, that we have things to do, we have thoughts to think, art to create, businesses to bootstrap. That all requires the courage to lift your head and moo out loud.
So as we begin the series, Moo Out Loud: How to be heard above the herd, we started out by introducing the four fears and the five practices.
If you’re going to free your inner rock star, your inner creativity, the original that God created you to be, you’re going to have to understand the five practices it requires. They are in order: free your mind, take your stand, fix your focus, find your voice, and fly your flag. We’ll think through each one of them in the weeks ahead, but today’s talk is a great overview. Do you know what the four fears are that we all face and how to face them? They’re the fears that will dog you in the new year and cause you to cast aside your new hopes and bold resolutions.
Listen to this talk and then let me know your perspective on mooing out loud.
