# 1 – Be Okay with the Fact that NOT Everybody is Going to Love You
– For a very long time I suffered silently trying to get everyone to love me as a speaker, coach and a human being, which is literally impossible. I came to the realization that not everyone loves God so if that is impossible for God, how was it ever going to be possible for me. Once I owned the fact that not everyone was going to love me, I set myself free to help and reach more people. Even Oprah Winfrey, who has helped millions from around the globe, has “Twitter Thugs” as she likes to call them. I do my best to represent me in the best light and than I let go of feeling that everybody needs to love me go. If you can relate, I suggest you do the same.
# 2 – Let Go of “Ordinary”
– People don’t talk about Ordinary they talk about Extraordinary. If you want to make a difference and get people to pay attention to you, ordinary isn’t going to do it. You have to be willing to be “Extraordinary” as a speaker and that includes your content and your delivery. Extraordinary is what will get people to pay attention to you, to be willing to learn from you and tell everyone else why the need to learn from you.
# 3 – Willing to Move Past Your Fear
– Do you think you need to be fearless? Many would tell you that you need to let go of all fear to be able to create you dreams. They might say you need to be fearless. The bottom line is if you are stretching yourself out of your comfort zones, fear is going to show up. It is totally normal to experience some fear as long as it doesn’t paralyze you so that you do nothing. If fear stops you, than you need to address it. If fear shows up and you walk through it, it loses its power over you because you go ahead and do whatever was bringing up the fear anyway!
