"Ọ̀rọ̀ òkèèrè, bí kò bá lé kan, yóò dín kan." Words heard from afar, if they are not overstated, they would be understated. There is a difference between being humble -or polite - and muffling your voice. Common sense isn't common. When it comes to sharing your unique vision, you have got to make it plain. I cannot tell you how many people I work with who communicate in cryptic, muffled language and get mad because nobody understands them. You cannot even understand yourself. So how do you expect anybody else to figure you out? You have to get comfortable stating the obvious, over and again. Don't assume people know who you are, what you're about and why it matters. Instead, assume that they don't enjoy any of the insights that you do. Even further, assume that they are drawn to you precisely because you possess some kind of rare and special knowledge. Share it! Share it openly and boldly with the people you're destined to serve. Learn more in the 16 Essential Traits of Personal Priesthood.
