This post is a response to the LYL Start-a-Blog prompt “What’s your elevator pitch?”
My fourth entry to the Blogging Challenge is devoted to this prompt: “What’s one thing you’re proud of?”
Honestly, most of all I am proud of the Life I am currently building for myself… but I would leave it for a later writing… like half a year or even later than that.
Instead I will tell you about my efforts with Live Your Legend LOCAL. Maybe the current results after a year are still quite far from an actual success story and could even look more like a failure from the outside… But I am very proud of myself for stepping up to do it, glad to have the experiences and the learning that I accumulated over my first year at it…
What people thank me for… Ironically, at first this one has been even more hurting and painful than anger… I thought of writing a whole passage devoted on the topic of “how I have been feeling invisible”. But that’s not the point of the prompt, and my mood has changed over the last 24 hours, finally leaving that bitterness and anger behind and switching back to excitement and happiness.
However, I still had to think hard for some time to find what to write here.
Today’s writing prompt: “What really makes you angry about the world?”
Dale Carnegie used to say that anyone could become a great public speaker if they were angry enough. And when it comes to helping people and living your legend, starting with your biggest frustrations can open up a lot of ideas as to the difference you want to make. Think of what consistently makes you mad about the world and what you wish was different.
