“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit at home and think about it. Go out and get busy”
– Dale Carnegie
We must engage in effective, compassionate and collaborative Action to change the status quo and create a sustainable future. This action needs to take place in our individual lives, within our communities, and in the larger social, economic, and cultural systems of which we are a part.
Taking positive action, even when it is “unsuccessful”, fires us up, connects us to other people, and helps us align the realities of our lives with our deeper values. Taking action, in and of itself, gives our life meaning and purpose; it is an outward commitment, a show of love and care for the planet and all those who live on it.
