My dad, David Foster, is hosting my post today via his past blog page (http://www.davidfoster.tv/). Even though he has been in heaven for over 2 years now his words are louder than ever. This is a blog about concluding the serious “Moo Out Loud.” I challenge you to read it and think about your brand. Moooo!
“Yesterday we concluded the series “Moo Out Loud: How to Stand up and be Heard Above the Herd.” We talked about the five practices of those who understand how important it is to develop their own brand.
With the changes in the way we do life, knowing who you are, why you’re here, and what you want is more important than ever before. Because if you don’t, someone else will define it for you and live your life for you. Having a life of your very own is something for which you’re going to have to fight. So just floating through life and hoping someone will give you a job that will guarantee the good life is no longer an option. I think we all know that by now.
So today we finished by highlighting practice number 5, flying your own flag. This simply means that you are the person responsible for your reputation for how people see you. The truth of the matter is, that we’ve gotten so used to fixating on our flaws that we’ve forgotten to focus on our strengths and abilities God has given us, and on why we’re here.
So yesterday, we talked about why people still believe the lie that they’re not creative. There are four reasons. Go through each one and ask yourself if you’ve ever believed these. We talked about what flying your flag means, what it communicates. And then lastly we asked the four flag questions. Look at your own reputation, how you carry yourself, how you live, how you occupy your space, and if the questions of force, love, agreement, and good are all clearly answered in the way you do life.”
