I’m always battling this conflict in my mind of wanting to help others but needing to make money for myself. There’s also a battle of wanting to be this big celebrity authority, but still wanting to stay humble.
We Godpreneurs that have a big message to share with the world can sometimes feel this conflict and it may hold us back from pushing forward with our cause.
Many of you know, I read the Bible almost every morning to hear from God on what he wants me to do today and what message he wants for the Godpreneurs.
Today I got a peak into, what I believe to be, the formula for achieving authority and potentially celebrity status in your niche, while doing exactly what we’ve been commanded to do.
Ready? I’m excited!
But wait, to set this up, I have to share something amazing that led to this.
My wife and I attend a marriage growth group (Bible study) where we’re reading Andy Stanley’s book “Staying in Love”. Each week there are devotionals we are to do together at home to prepare for the following week.
The morning of writing this blog, before opening the devotional, I prayed “God, speak to me today on what you want me to do and share.” That’s my routine every morning: coming to my CEO and asking what’s the plan for today.
The devotional had me read Philippians 2:1-11, and that’s where and how I got the revelation I’m sharing with you today.
I’m going to do something different. I’m going to break this down in sections and explain each section from the point of guide to Becoming an authority.
