“Don’t play it safe. Chase after something so much bigger than you are, there’s no way you could ever accomplish it without God.” (p. 103)
One of the essentials for becoming a change maker, according to Lomenick, is that we must be courageous as leaders. If we did have a great calling from God, but no courage to chase after it, then we would not amount to much so I truly wish to take ahold of this courage that he speaks of and go after it with everything I have.
I don’t want to dream of writing a book that people read 100 years from now without having the balls to get up early and write it and fail many, many times while trying to do so. I want to have the courage to share everything I am going through and let it help whoever it needs to.
I don’t want to fear having others write disrespectful reviews of my book/music but I must let that fear go if I am going to plunge forward doing what I love.
So as you pursue whatever it is you wish to go after, embrace the courage and plow through regardless.
