Escape Average & Do Work that Matters

Posted: 04/08/13 3:00 PM (Modified: 04/08/13 3:00 PM)

I'm not sure if you're aware of this but I am a HUGE Jon Acuff fan. Why? Well, first, he wrote a book called Stuff Christians Like and as someone who has grown up in the church my entire life, I found it downright hilarious. 

But that's not the only reason why I like Jon Acuff. I like him because he's real. He is an encourager and a motivator but not of the normal kind. Years ago when I realized I had learned a method that could greatly help other people, I also realized I had a choice. I had a choice to keep it to myself, I had a choice to only share it with my family, I had a choice to stop. I chose to start. I chose to punch fear in the face and start public speaking. 

I used to throw up anytime I spoke in public. I used to sweat. A lot. I used to get dizzy speaking to just 4 or 5 people. I remember that clearly. Something inside of me told me to start, no matter what it felt like, I wanted to do work that matters and escape average and that is what I did.

Some of you need to escape average too, some of you have a passion and a dream down deep inside that has been buried by daily routine and something inside of you is calling you to start. Start being awesome. Start your dream. Start your passion. 

I want to encourage you to pre-order a copy of Jon Acuff's latest book, Start. I don't recommend books very often but I'm recommending this one because I believe it will alter your life and I'm not saying that lightly. 

If you preorder Start on, you get $250 in AMAZING extras including The Hater Handbook (my favorite) and 3 Stages of Every Awesome Idea ebook plus, 2 video segments from Start Night, 4 Quitter conference audio sessions and the Start ebook.

Visit and get moving on your dream.

Start by Jon Acuff
