“The size of your audience doesn’t matter.  Keep up the good work.”

Well it doesn’t, and yet it does.

The size of your audience doesn’t matter if –

  • You are living in private with the same integrity as you are presenting in public
  • You are enjoying what you’re doing for the joy of the experience, not for the purpose of simply impressing others
  • You would do what you’re doing even if there was no audience
  • Your sense of value is in knowing who you really are – your true self – and that’s enough gratification for you, regardless the size of your audience

The size of your audience does matter if –

  • You have a passion, a message, a talent, or a skill that can make this world a better place
  • You like sharing with others
  • Others indicate that what you have to offer is of value
  • Having people appreciate, applaud, and admire you feels good to you

So consider these two elements:

  • the intention of your heart
  • the purpose of your life

Choose then the size of your audience.

If you know in your heart that you are really meant to be on a larger stage – then do not allow your anxiety, fear of shame, or false modesty to keep you from stepping on that stage.  You never want to look back and say, “I wish I would have . . .”

And always, keep up the good work, regardless the size of the audience!
