There was a time in my life when I thought I wanted to be famous. Well, maybe not famous, but at least notable. When we took the Meyers-Briggs personality test in high school and college, I would undoubtedly always get the “Extrovert” E. I used to love meeting as many people as possible, being included in major events, going to parties where there would be lots of people, making an impression.
As I got older and began my career in ministry, I thought it would be great to become a public speaker. Maybe not be on a major circuit, but at least on a minor one where I got to travel and meet lots of people and be a recognizable name. I wanted people calling me because they were so impressed with my public speaking skills.
