My blogging journey started over 2.5 years ago. I had no idea what would really come from it. I had high hopes, but there is no way I could be certain what the real results would be. All I know is I was frustrated with where I was, and some of the struggles I was having as a husband and a father.
I’m not alone
My thoughts were, “surely I’m not the only man who feels he could lead and love his family better. Surely, there are some other men who are highly motivated to do so, but have been overwhelmed.” And I was right. There are a ton of other men who share these thoughts and feelings.
So my journey began to connect with these men, and to ultimately become a better husband and better dad, while helping them do the same. The journey has not been easy, but I can say I am more than pleased, and feel more passionate than ever about this. I was recently asked to share my passion and how it relates to me blogging and building an online platform.
Sharing my story
New York Times best-selling author of the book Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World, Michael Hyatt and his team reached out to me and asked me to be a part of a video series he was putting together. The video series, called Your Platform Makeover, would feature some interviews with me, and a platform makeover intended to help me and those who watch make a few small tweaks in order to reach more people with our messages.
The past week the first of three videos in this series was released, and the following two will be released over the next several days. The video series is free for a limited time. The response to the video has been amazing!
As I’ve discovered through blogging there are many other men out there who share my challenges and my passions. Many of these men voiced this in the comments of the videos.
In addition to that, there were women sharing their passions, and people with many different missions sharing what they are passionate about. As of this morning there were more than 300 comments of people sharing their passions and leaving inspiring comments.
Be inspired and encouraged
It’s great knowing there are so many people out there who want to make a positive impact on others. My guess is you are one of them too, but maybe you haven’t stepped out there to do it. I’m hoping you do. If this is you, watching the video series will inspire you.
At a minimum I hope in watching the video you are encouraged to be the very best you can in whatever roles you serve, and for whoever matters most in your life.
What are you passionate about? Who are the people who matter most in your life?
