Vulnerability is Embraced as a Strength

By | August 25th, 2016|Blog Challenge, Emotional Intelligence, Future, Leadership, Self-Awareness|

ReWriting the World Blog Challenge Day 6 I imagine a world in which Vulnerability is embraced as a strength So that we can ask for help without shame. So that showing emotion is recognised as an important human trait that is normal and natural. So that those who express emotion are respected and revered. So that raising a new idea is met with encouragement and curiosity. So that putting yourself out there as an artist, entrepreneur or free thinker isn’t so scary. Currently, our society regards vulnerability as a weakness. This makes asking for help, posing new ideas, and creative expression seem difficult and scary things to do. This prevents [...]

We Trust Ourselves

By | August 24th, 2016|Blog Challenge, Future, Self-Awareness|

ReWriting the World Blog Challenge Day 5 I imagine a world in which we trust ourselves. So that... We stop looking outside ourselves for answers and start relying on our selves because we have a deep connection to our sense of self. We can look in the mirror and experience a strong foundation of confidence and self-awareness. We feel grounded in our relationship with ourselves such that we have strong relationships with others in our families and communities. Today, we are forever second guessing our own intelligence, our own wisdom, looking to others, role models, the media, pop culture for [...]

We Take Responsibility for Collective Wellness

By | August 22nd, 2016|Blog Challenge, Future, Leadership|

ReWrite the World Blog Challenge Day 3   I imagine a world in which we take responsibility for collective wellness. So that... • We see the role we all play in our collective health, from physical to community to planetary. • We recognise the impact of our personal contribution to the macro and start by prioritising our personal wellbeing while giving care and attention to the big picture of wellness in our communities and on our planet.  • We improve our personal and planetary health, through a commitment to personal and planetary healing, and a recognition that they are [...]

Peace Begins at Home

By | August 21st, 2016|Blog Challenge, Future, Leadership|

ReWrite the World Blog Challenge Day 2 I imagine a world in which peace begins at home. So that conflict resolution is a common occurrence, diffusing and preventing violence and the emotional scars that remain. So that families address conflict before it causes damage to hearts, minds and bodies. So that healthy discussion enables differences of opinion to co-exist as a matter of course. So that nation states focus on peaceful resolution of differences and unmet expectations.   Today,  35% of women globally, experience physical and/or sexual violence, primarily by their intimate partners. Children learn to deal with frustration and conflict using violence. It starts in [...]

Business respects it’s social license to operate

By | August 20th, 2016|Blog Challenge, Future, Leadership|

ReWriting the World Blog Challenge Day 1 I imagine a world in which business respects it’s social license to operate. So that trust is earned rather than bought. Business outcomes are equated with the greater good, human needs and social evolution. So that we can go to jobs at companies that we feel respect us, it’s customers and shareholders are at par with these other two priorities. I imagine that if a business does not operate in a manner congruent with human needs and the greater good, there is an understanding that it will not operate for long, as [...]

Why ReWrite the World Blog Challenge?

By | August 19th, 2016|Blog Challenge, Future|

I imagine a world in which our minds are consumed the possibilities of a bright future, not because we turn our backs on the storms and darkness, but because we embrace it all and allow the contrast to inform our experience and because we have dealt with the shadow, the things we’ve been reluctant to talk about. I imagine a world in which we have the hard conversations as a society, that get us closer to a sense of planetary wellbeing.  Would you like to join me? If you’re as hungry for a vision of a better future, as [...]
