Becoming Someone Worth Following

Often I encourage my friends to live their lives out loud. How I define “living out loud” is to not be afraid to share publicly your achievements, your journey and your thoughts.

Sometimes I will hear people say things like, “Yeah but no one cares what I’m doing” or “I’m not doing anything important enough for people to want to follow me” or “But I haven’t done anything noteworthy, yet.”

By living your life out-loud you give others “permission” to do the same. Of course they don’t need your permission, it’s just a lot easier to go down a certain path when you get to read about and watch someone else go down that path as well. It encourages people by giving them some sort of framework of what may happen to them emotionally, physically, spiritually when they also decide to take a similar path. It takes out a little bit of the uncertainty. It creates a sense of belief in another person, because we aren’t all that different from each other at the end of the day.

You are already someone worth following. I promise you, you are. Just make sure you stand for something worth standing for.
