The Everyday Revolutionary – Go Ahead

Davy Crockett, the King of the Wild Frontier, has a few things to teach us about being an Everyday Revolutionary – luckily it does NOT involve wrestling a bear! Listen in while we take in good advice from a frontier legend.Davy_Crockett_blog

Create Social Capital

Social capital, the ability to use your social network to accomplish your goals, is important to the Everyday Revolutionary. Those around you and their skills, expertise and social networks are a valuable resource. Learning to make the most of your social capital and expand your network can be key to your success!

Seize The Initiative!

120606022644-d-day-11-horizontal-large-galleryIf you’ve ever seen a good war movie worth it’s salt, you’ve heard the line that is the title of this post. This is good advice for the Everyday Revolutionary. Many have been encouraged by quotes from great military leaders about taking the initiative. My great quote came from my Aunt, a great cook and cunning strategist. Check out the podcast to see what she had to say about initiative.

A Thousand Miles and a Single Step

The Journey of a Thousand Miles begins with a single step – Lao Tzu

 

This was most quoted to me after my mother had asked me to take out the trash for the third or fourth time back when I was a kid. Although it seems to be applied toward loftier goals than simply getting the trash out to the curb, the logic is sound; a little forward motion is required to get anywhere.

And so it goes with the things you want to accomplish. Dreaming, complaining or wishing does not accomplish the end of the dream, complaint or wish. Only doing brings any of those things to fruition. And doing has a starting point, that famous first step.

That first step into being an Everyday Revolutionary can take you out of your comfort zone, deep into uncharted territory. But that is still a start. It doesn’t have to be pretty, it has to be a start.  I would suggest that it’s most likely not going to be pretty, this out-of-the-comfort-zone, unchartered region, so that’s one less thing to worry about.

What ever change you have set your mind to undertake, begin. Even if you are unsure exactly the steps to take in the process, begin taking those steps. It’s easier to find the path from the front yard than it is the couch in the living room.

Take that first step!wandelen

Start With The Destination In Mind

Our second podcast discusses the importance of a clear destination or purpose for your Everyday Revolution. Remember, you’re on a mission! Before Sir Edmund Hillary successfully climbed Mt. Everest, he knew where he was going. To the top!

Welcome to the Everyday Revolutionary

We here at The Everyday Revolutionary believe that most revolutions are not televised, but are actually small, everyday occurrences fomented by ordinary people with extraordinary grit to see things change and their visions to fruition. We’ve put together a series of podcasts covering a wide array of topics, like how to get started, creating social capital and others that will be of interest to The Everyday Revolutionary. So, thanks for being willing to join in the revolution happening in your neck of the woods and dig in!
