Welcome, my fellow Revolutionaries! I am over-the-moon excited to have you join me for this adventure.
The Ripple Revolution is about the power of the individual to change the world. It is a reconfiguration of how we think about making a difference, and what we think is possible.
But it’s not a blog about being a selfless altruist who gives until you’re bled dry. It’s a blog about living an energized life, and putting that energy to work to make the world a better place.
It’s a blog that recognizes how mind-boggling huge (my favorite phrase to describe this) the potential to make a difference is that each of us has, not through grand and glorious feats, but through our everyday lives.
The outcomes of the choices we make and the actions we take create ripples. And those ripples change the world. Taken cumulatively, over the course of your life, the potential for positive change is (wait for it) mind-bogglingly huge!
That cumulative impact of your choices and actions creates your Ripple Legacy. Throughout your life, you are creating your Ripple Legacy. Some of the ripples you create are positive, some less so. The Ripple Revolution is about consciously, purposefully tilting the balance in favor of those positive ripples, and doing it in an energizing way that is sustainable for the long-term.
A Ripple Revolution Hub
I see this blog and this site evolving into a Ripple Revolution hub, tapping into the insights of experts across a wide range of topics. To start with, I am creating a Revolution Resources section with book recommendations to help you in your question to energize your impact.
I plan to create a Ripple Revolution podcast, interviewing both personal development experts and change catalysts (if you sign up for the e-mail newsletter, I will let you know when that launches).
And above all, I would love to hear your voice. I hope this becomes a hub for interesting, insightful discussion. We all have much to learn from each other.
How to be a Ripple Revolutionary
How do you become a Ripple Revolutionary? It’s simple. You just start! It’s as easy as the next choice you make or the next action you take. It could be setting a goal to smile at at least one stranger tomorrow. It could be remembering to tell your kids why you’re proud of them. It could be sitting down and making a microcredit loan on kiva.org.
There are a bazillion ways to be a Ripple Revolutionary. Some of them take no investment – like a smile – while others require wholesale life changes.
There is no wrong way to be a Ripple Revolutionary. The key is simply to do it. And the best time to start is right now!
