During my fourth year in college, I attended a Women’s Leadership seminar on campus. When the afternoon speaker took the podium, dressed to kill in her St. John knit suit, and perfectly coiffed hair, I knew why I was there. As she worked the room with poise and charm, humor, and grace, she embodied everything I knew I was destined to become; a Woman of Power.
This afternoon as I sat in front of my computer screen, barefoot, dressed in a summer caftan, and leading a session for corporate leaders from around the country, I realized that I was indeed walking in my gift. It wasn't in the way I saw it that day in college, but it was the way God intended.
Most people think that they need a bigger platform, more followers, or that they need more notoriety. That could not be further from the truth. What you need is a message that you believe in at the core of your soul and a lifestyle that backs it up.
In these times of uncertainty, you don’t need a bigger stage. You need a voice ready to answer God’s clarion call to show up and be obedient, whether you are in your living room or the biggest arena in the world.
This week, I want you to find ways to take up more space and offer your gift to the world. Stop waiting for the right time and take your shot now. It may take years to get to your desired destination, but the moment you take flight, you give someone else the license to soar.
