Iolani School Boy Scouts

April 28, 2017 at 09:59PM

The number one fear in the world? Public speaking. Growing up on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu, I'd shake or freeze up from nervousness and shyness when speaking in front of class among my peers. Made me quite self-conscious. I preferred being in the audience and I feared having the spotlight. Fast forward to today, having performed live beatboxing music and having done public speaking engagements such as the first and second TEDx Talks in Honolulu and other engagements in hip-hop culture classrooms in universities and events through 13 years have compelled me to get out of my comfort zone to develop my current personality and today, I no longer get the jitters unless I stop practicing and training. Earlier tonight, I spoke publicly in front of Hawaii's 4th graders at Iolani School and you know you're a public speaker when you have a captive audience as young as 4th graders. Hey now!

I was a guest speaker for this Boy Scouts Den. They are so fun, and they repeatedly asked me to beatbox for them. They're awesome! Feedback I received is I kept them engaged. A parent mentioned she appreciated that I advocated education as a by product of the Freeman Foundation Study Abroad Scholarship Program offered through the University of Hawaii at Kapiolani Community College and Beijing Foreign Studies University, Mike Curb College MELE Program in Music Business and Audio Engineering partnership with Belmont University and Honolulu Community College. I also mentioned I did judo with the alias "Spider-Man" and how it saved my life. I also shared I trained with Iolani School alumnus, Hawaii High School Association State Wrestling Champion, Team USA Judo Beijing Olympian, and Hawaii Judo Academy founder Taylor Takata. Big mahalo to Word of Life's Associate Pastor and Author of "Compel" Wally Matanza, Patti, Isaiah, and the Iolani School Boy Scouts Den of 4th graders for having me in this public speaking engagement! I hope to see you again soon!

Know the fruit of your labor is your labor of love. If you know that, no one can take that from you. When you recognize that, know your worth is eternally internal, not external. When we sow bountifully, we will reap bountifully and bear much fruit that is far bigger than ourselves, what is in our posessions. No earthly riches can fulfill what Father God can. When someone cannot see we are highly favored and the harvest coming our way, know that for him or her though seeing, do not see. Keep on moving and recognize we have more than enough. We need not another person's approval for the fruit of our labor that bears much fruit. Be glad and rejoice for this is the Day that the Lord has made called Today. Know that Father God approves of us, our work ethic and dedication. It is you who Father God is well pleased.

Be bold! When a topic is controversial and you feel strongly about it, be unafraid to speak out in public even when in error. Most of us don't care about how politically correct a person can be over how authentic and real he or she is. It's how we learn from one another as long as we're appropriate to one another. Most of the time when we are in error we learn more. That does not mean to be intentionally in error like a troll would be, but it is good to give our best effort to speak out on tough and sensitive topics. No one cares if we are always right. Even a mathematically cannot always be right, but that mathematician will find a way to learn from his or her math errors. If you only spoke out when you are right, then you will not grow into tackling tougher topics. The moment you feel you need to stay silent on tough issues is the moment you've allowed yourself to be passive about an issue that does concern you. We have a voice for our generation. Be that voice. Use your voice. Be passionate and use your voice to advocate on the topics you want to be heard.
