I had the privilege of listening to Seth Godin in person for a few hours over the past couple days at a John Maxwell conference and like only Seth can, he delivered many profound one liners that were inspiring and thought provoking.
He challenged and encouraged us to go Make a Ruckus!
Here is the essence of his message, one I think all of us need to hear, internalize and apply:
Decide what you stand for and stand. Figure out what your dent in the universe means and make a dent. Choose to matter. Do work that is distinguished and remarkable! Notable and worth talking about. Do something different. Make a difference. Lead us. We want to be led by somebody who cares and is doing something meaningful. Learn to dance with fear. Don’t let it stop you. Step out. You may fail but that’s good. Learn to fail your way to success. Believe in you. Pick you. Invest in you. Bring you.
Make a ruckus!
