Season: 2 Episode: 020
Summary: It’s difficult to rise up and fulfill the purpose God has called you to when those in your life are threatened by your success. Csilla explains why driven people set the pace for everyone else, and why you gain more even if you lose some while doing what God has called you to do.
“Driven people set the pace for everyone else.”
“The person who is growing disturbs the ecosystem of the other person.”
“The success of one points out the lack of success is another.”
“Our culture is fascinated by famous and successful people because deep down inside we all want our lives to count for something.”

Feel free to email with questions or episode topics. If you recommend a topic for an episode and I use it, I will dedicate it to you.

4) Finding our voice in a noisy world is intimidating, scary and confusing. Your book, Finding Your Voice, addresses many of these issues. It would appear that everyone has a platform due to social media and the internet, but why do you think it’s so hard for women to share the message God puts in their hearts?

6) What encouragement do you have for those who feel the nudge to use their voice for the Lord? And what advice do you have for the one who feels she may lose friends, or family may
