I’m coming out! The purple lips edition.

This is a follow-up to my turtle-post about sticking your neck out.

I am a communicator.  I love words.  And lots of times, they love me, too.

One kind of communication (writing) is a lot less scary than another kind (speaking).  You may have heard the statistic that public speaking is ranked as people’s #1 fear?  Even trumping death.

You know what scares me even more than public speaking and death?

Knowing what I want, and not reaching for it.  With gusto.  (What, exactly, am I waiting for?)  Malcolm S. Forbes said:

“The biggest mistake people make in life
is not trying to make a living at doing what they most enjoy.”

I agree.  Hence this coming out announcement.  With a request.

  1. The announcement:  I want to be a professional (as in paid) speaker.
  2. The request:  See those big, purple lips on the upper right-side of your screen?  Click ’em! And if you know of anyone who might be interested in what I’m up to, share that link with them, please.  Or direct them to this site.

Your help is so appreciated!  This turtle thanks you ;-)

    “I’m coming out! I want the world to know. Got to let it show.

    There’s a new me coming out. And I just have to live. And I wanna give.
    I’m completely positive.

    I think this time around, I am gonna do it.
    Like you never knew it. Ooh, I’ll make it through

    The time has come for me to break out of the shell…
    I have to shout, that I’m coming out!

    I’ve got to show the world all that I wanna be, and all my abilities
    There’s so much more to me. Somehow, I have to make them
    Just understand. I got it well in hand. And, oh, how I’ve planned.

    I’m spreadin’ love. There’s no need to fear.
    And I just feel so glad everytime I hear:

    I’m coming out! I want the world to know, got to let it show.
    I’m coming out. I want the world to know, got to let it show.”

    Congratulations on your decision to share the counterpart of your natural communication gift. Writing and speaking — fueled by your genuine and magnificent heart for humanity — are the vehicle that will transport you to your Destiny. The time is right, as the world is desperate for those who are willing to apply balm to its many ills. You have been preparing throughout your entire life, and you are ready for the work. May God bless you as you go forth!
