Because we are fundamentally relational beings, our engagement with and perception of the world is shaped by our conversations every day.
These conversations may be local or global, and everything in between. They tend to either confirm or in some way reshape the way we think things are: from the way we live our daily lives and do our work, to the meaning of life, the universe, and well, everything.
For those who believe things could be better, we have a choice: criticise from the sidelines or have the courage to become the change we want to see.
But this can’t be a solo act, turning the tide is too much for one person alone.
Neither can we change the conversation if we can’t hear our voice, or know what is important to us and propels us out of our comfort zone.
And then there’s the space. Because if we are going to flourish and realise the possibilities, we also need to create the opportunity to reflect and recharge. Otherwise, all we have is the repetition of existing noise, and this is about a different kind of change. One that emerges and grows fresh fruit.
Are you ready to become more of the kind of change you want to see?
Thanks for reading
This is the scope of the final part of my new book Quiet Disruptors: Creating Change Without Shouting, available in paperback and Kindle on Amazon.
The first two parts (why now? and the stories of new voices) leads us straight to personal application. With very practical questions, tips and resources to develop your voice and change the conversation for good.
I’d love to hear about the difference you’re making where you are.
The usual short pause points have been interspersed with introductions to the book and build on the Manifesto shared last weekend. I hope they have helped give you a sense of what to find inside its pages.
