No Hometown Prophet

Famous

Yesterday’s post, with the quote sent from Sally, is a reminder of how difficult it is to have the confidence to feel like we can make a difference.

People who know you well, will not notice your transformation, and therefore, you are much more susceptible to their ridicule and your own doubt.

And during this Lenten Season, many are reminded of Jesus’ story. Jesus wasn’t considered a Prophet in his home town, but he should have been.

Instead, he changed the course of history with his humility. And his prophetic promise, and sacrifice.

Reach Relevance Impact

Reach.  Relevance.  Impact.

Just before the entire Columbia, South Carolina airport power went out, I was filming a one-take-You Tube video of another airport hallway billboard sign.

Had the power not gone off, I would have finished the one-take-You Tube video with, “What I am trying to do is expand my reach, relevance and impact.”

I mean, who doesn’t want to do that?

Or maybe, it’s just crazy talk, or inappropriate, to think that one person might start something that could help make the world a better place.

Book Publishing Checklist Link

Roger Parker, from Published and Profitable, has been a cyber-mentor for several years now.  He doesn’t even know this.

Not because I’m trying to hide the fact.  Simply because I’m busy. Roger’s busy.  Busy makes us do strange things.  Like forget to tell people how much we appreciate what they’ve done for us.

But that’s what makes the Internet so cool.  You can have a positive influence on others, whether you meet them or not.

Click here to see, read and or print his PDF file.  It’s a great place to start to give you an idea of what you should consider if you ever want to publish your first book.

Tomorrow though, be prepared for the shock of your life.

And while it really applies to anything that’s important to you, tomorrow’s post will be particularly revealing if you have very important things you want to do in your life, but have been putting off.  Carpe diem.
