Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
— Margaret Mead
Evil only succeeds when good people do nothing.
— Martin Luther King, Jr
We strive to leave a positive mark on the world, and to leave an inspiring legacy.
Whether our focus is climate change, human rights, or animal rights – changing the world means that we sometimes come face to face with the bleakest parts of humanity.
Being a world-changer has a way of bringing out the best in us. And, the worst in us.
All too often, world-changers get burnt out. Overwhelmed with despair, anger, stress, or trauma. We don’t get a chance to relax, because there’s always more to be done.
Activists are leaders.
Some qualities of great leaders are:
They are confident and have good self-esteem
They manage their feelings of worry, guilt, etc in useful ways
They communicate effectively
They know how to say “no” and set boundaries
They strive to do their best (and they’re ok with not being perfect)
Being an effective activist isn’t a goal, it’s a way of thinking. But sometimes, things get in the way.
We might procrastinate on things that we know we should do. We might self-sabotage. We might have to deal with stress at work. We might have to contend with difficult but well-meaning relatives, friends, or co-workers. Sometimes, it’s challenges from the past that get triggered, and affect our day to day wellbeing.
Sometimes, the best thing we can do for our cause is to become better at dealing with our own struggles, so that we can be more effective leaders – and bring out the best in ourselves and others.
