Titles: Things I wish I would have known when I was fifteen.

We live in a world of titles: president, beauty queen, New York Times bestselling author, and many, many more.  I don’t think there’s anything wrong with titles.  They make lofty goals, and something to work toward.  It’s when a person connects their worth to a title that you get into trouble—thinking you are only of value if you hold the title you desire.

Remember titles are just nouns.  Yeah, they sound cool when you put them in front of your name but they are not the “end-all” for what you can accomplish.  Some of the most influential people in my life have never been president of anything.  You can touch lives without a title.  You were of worth the moment you were born, and don’t let the world or anybody else make you think differently.
