Lean in. Let me tell you a secret:
Your. Message. Matters.
My darling author, you are the only person on the whole planet who is the unique sum of your experiences, feelings, knowledge, and opinions. All that comes together into your own world-view.
You might catalog and classify your opinions through the lenses of your life like:
- Political party
- Religion (or lack thereof)
- Where you live
Or what you think about marriage, guns, equality, feminism, or the importance of bananas in smoothies.
Your message has nothing to do with your LABELS. Do you know what your message is? Find out here: Click To Tweet
But you are so much than your labels or affiliations! There are things you care about – passionately, deeply – that you know you are meant to share with the world.
THIS is your message.
It is the information, the message, the transformation only you can share. And it matters.
Your message matters to you (of course!) but more importantly, it matters to the people you’re meant to reach.
Will that be everybody? Of course not! But there are people going through life who need to hear what you have to say – and most of them don’t even know you exist.
To those people, you’re a single candle shining in the dark. Alone, it feels like you might not do much, that you one book is a drop to the ocean. That your message (and sometimes, it feels like YOU) don’t matter.
Yet… one candle can create a light to illuminate the whole world.
So when you keep your message to yourself – using whatever hallucination makes you happy today – who are you really hurting?
What precious soul are you leaving alone in the dark?
When you aren’t sharing your message that can:
- Change a marriage or relationship
- Let someone know they’re not alone
- Fix a business
- Teach a skill, recipe, or philosophy
- Heal a physical body
- Repair a wounded spirit
- Bring love and understanding into the world
When you’re not writing your book (and creating the next best seller) you’re hurting the very person YOU’RE meant to help.
Your message matters to you, it matters to that person, and it matters to me.
MY message is that I’m a word-person, a story-person, a MESSAGE person. My message is to help you take your message and get it out – to share it, to help it have meaning, to help you touch the lives of others.
To be a single candle, shining in the dark, lighting the way for YOU to light the way for millions.
Let’s get started and bring light to the world.
