If you want to be popular, draw a crowd, or have a lot of people like you, is it all about pleasing them and not you?
I know the first thing going through most people’s minds right now is…”be yourself” “be authentic” that will draw people in. Will it?
‘Pleasing others’ sounds fake, but what about ‘serving others’? Denying yourself.
Popular sounds like a flimsy word to most adults. We think of high school and not being popular, not liking that, therefore trashing the word.
Maybe successful or appealing is a better word.
Think about packed out restaurants, best selling movies, sports teams with packed arenas, full churches, popular political candidates…
Who is it about?
