There is a yearning cry in the heart for significance. To feel wanted, important, worthy of something bigger than the small story playing out in the everyday humdrum. Songs cry for a love all-consuming. Hollywood reaches for the happy ever after that breaks all convention and gives significance to the tears that are shed on the hard road to the final chapter. Pale reflections of the hearts of mankind yearning for home.
Let me open up a not-so-secret to you.
“You are part of a BIGGER story!
Ultimately, it is not about YOU!
All of the world is waiting for your fullness!”
When survival depends on radical action heroic acts are accomplished.
Accepting these fundamentals will help you climb over your fears and DO IT ANYWAYS. It is astonishing what mankind will do when pushed into a corner.
Your unique voice needs to heard. Your stories need to be told. If pen never touches paper, note is never sung, guitar string never strummed, only one thing is certain. Your incredible potential will be silent.
You count, and it’s time to stand up and be counted.
Don’t leave your creative drives gasping for breath. Give vent to them. Not because they might make money. Not because this one or that one is doing such-and-such. Not because I say so.
Do it because it is WHO YOU ARE!
STOP! Consuming. START! Creating.
Create. Create. Create.
Content. Content. Content.
Share value. Share value. Share value.
Instead of bloating your capacity with pages from every one else’s story, pay attention to the river of words on the inside and seek ways to let them spill onto the page.
Lean in to your leanings, understanding that the passions that stir you will most likely stir something in others if only you will frame them in ways that others can appreciate.
Blogging is great place to start if you are a wordster.
Youtube works for singers and videographers.
Spotify for songbirds.
The avenues are open for you to walk.
Don’t be fearful to take the necessary steps to put yourself out there.
