Men tend to go for broke and build an amazing life for one of two reasons.
One, we’re still desperately trying to impress someone, so we drive hard in a plea for affirmation we have yet to receive or accept.
And two, we’re desperately trying to change the world.
One of those motivations is healthy and the other is not.
Part of being bold for good is deciding to boldly go for all that life has to offer, squeezing every drop of abundance from it that we possibly can. It’s rejecting passivity and getting off the sidelines and getting engaged. It’s being intentional.
Being bold for good usually involves some directional choices about relationships, careers, hobbies, and causes.
Guys trapped in passivity don’t build great relationships or successful careers, and while they may give lip service, they rarely support good causes with their time, their talent, and their treasure.
Being bold for good is all about hacking life, toughing it out, and striving for more than mere passive survival, and doing it all with a sense of purpose. That is, going big and bold, not merely for pride or pleasure, but for a cause bigger than ourselves.
Enter Joseph Hayes.
Joseph is a highly successful realtor in Northwest Arkansas. He lists and sells a ton of houses while maintaining a pretty humble personality.
And he understands going big and bold for a good cause. That is, he’s willing to pursue excellence and success so that his resources can matter for a much bigger cause – namely, But God Ministries.
Joseph made the decision to give back from every sale, involving his clients in the generosity, and he puts his name and reputation behind the cause as well.

Now, having seen what it looks like to be bold for good in action, do one of two things…
- Go big and bold with your life so that you can help Joseph’s good cause, or
- Go big and bold with your life and serve and support your own good cause.
