21 Days of Leadership
“God, make me famous. Make me stand out so I can make a big difference in the world”
This quote jumped out at me when I was listening to a Joel Osteen podcast this morning re: Asking Big.
And I will admit – my first reaction to this was resistance. The thought of asking to be famous felt selfish in a “who the hell do you think you are Tina” kind of way.
But let’s be real – I can’t lead anyone if they don’t know who I am. If I don’t stand out. If I’m not famous in my own right.
The definition of famous is ‘known about by many people’. Being famous is simply being known by the people you are meant to serve.
And so my question for you today is simple:
What do you want to be famous for?
A leader must first CLAIM her desire to be famous – to be known for the impact that she is meant to have in the world.
Until you own this desire fully you will never create the success you want. You will not attract the right clients. You will not make enough money. You will feel stuck and frustrated in your efforts.
Leadership asks that you go all in – you can’t have one foot in the world of safety (hiding) and the other in the world of impact (fame).
Today I ask you to boldly proclaim what you want to be famous for.
I’ll go first.
I want to be famous for helping women find the courage to lead. Lead themselves. Lead their clients. Lead their businesses. Lead their teams.
I want to be known as a leader of leaders.

I’m right here with you.
