I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about being a ‘fanatic!’ What’s a fanatic?
1. a person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal, especially for an extreme religious or political cause.
1. filled with or expressing excessive zeal.
I think really you can be a fanatic for anything. I was listening to a song on the radio called talking about not being ashamed for being ‘on fire’ about your faith. This is so true. While each of us have a choice, I can still be sold out. I have friends from all walks of life but I do want to be authentic to me and sold out for that which I believe, who I am and passions I have. Whether you’re a fanatic for a hobby, a team, a cause, your faith . . . I have been thinking . . . I am going to go all out (or so I desire to) and I hope you do too. In 2015 I’m making a conscious effort to be sold out!
Being sold out may mean stepping out of our comfort zone or even scary but sold out is to take the full plunge, doing the hokey pokey with all digits in, taking that leap and making a commitment that there’s no hesitation! Of course we want to be a fanatic for good, for uplifting purpose, and for the better of our brothers and sisters.
How about you? Are you with me? I think when we are sold out, our causes and enthusiasm are contagious! I want to share and live out loud. I want to overcome those big mountains by saying . . . I’m a fanatic and I’m going to believe the impossible! What is it going to hurt? Yes, maybe disappointment but if I keep hoping and believing . . . I know things will happen. Are you with me? What’s an area you want to be sold out in/for?
Warmest creative wishes,
