Do you have the courage to be anonymous?
Do you have the courage to say your truth, embody your ideas, live your passions, follow your dreams, and be the person God called you to be even if no one notices?
Many of us are afraid to step out there and do what we really want to do because we don’t have a following or we fear that the world will be indifferent towards us.
When you’re hated, at least you know you’re relevant. When people disagree with you, at least you know they’re paying attention to what you have to say; you get the pleasure of knowing you struck a chord. But what about when people don’t show up?
When they don’t click “like”; when they don’t follow you on twitter; when they don’t show up to your performances or showcases; when they don’t promote you or praise you; when they don’t see any value in your activities; when they don’t encourage you, can you still show up to do what you believe God called you to do?
Can you look past the empty seats long enough to remember that this is the key to your fulfillment in life? Can you hear past the sound of crickets clearly enough to hear the inner voice telling you that this is the key to altering physical reality in the unique way you’ve been designed to do so?
I personally believe it is impossible to consistently devote yourself to any activity over time without eventually being recognized by people. But in order to even get to that level, you have to be willing to act on faith. You must be willing to show up when there’s no following to help you reinforce your personal convictions. That is exactly what I’d like to encourage you to do from here on out.
Don’t worry about who is or isn’t following you. Just keep following God and do what you know you’re supposed to do.
Everything else will take care of itself.
That’s my two cents.
