Thrive Authentically – Three Steps

Thrive Authentically – 3 Steps

What does it mean to thrive authentically?

We live our purpose and earn a living without destroying the environment and our fellow humans. This pursuit helps us meet all our human needs and wants in a constantly changing world: we expand our understanding of the many forces constantly in motion, in addition to physical and mental health and safety, economic security, and a sense of value and belonging.

The goal of The Climate Economy is to help every individual thrive authentically. At the end of the day, everyone is safe and secure and having all their needs fulfilled. In The Climate Economy, education, entrepreneurship, caring, service, creativity, unlimited energy from the sun and new climate venture creation are the core of all the activities. There are so many opportunities in The Climate Economy to improve on how we get our energy, housing energy, transportation and everything, without causing harmful emission or otherwise harming nature or humanity. Every new creative climate venture can be a business or just a project with friends.

Here are the three steps. You don’t have to take them all in any particular order.

1. Understand your needs and impact.

Everyone’s first priority always has to be their own mental and physical health and safety. We need to have clean air and water, adequate shelter, food, education, healthcare, security and mental health. As we build and protect our comfort zone, we have to ensure that we don’t harm others or the environment in doing so. To get started:

Understand and evaluate your personal needs and impact.

Think about the things that you really need to be happy and healthy, and how you can cut unnecessary waste.

Ask questions.

Seek out truth in a world of disinformation.

Know your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in a world with a changing climate.

2. Be a star in The Climate Economy.

All kinds of jobs are available in The Climate Economy in areas like clean energy, natural conservation and restoration, and the circular economy just to name a few. And we can create new ventures that are good for the climate, economy and humanity based on our expertise and passions. We can all achieve economic security. To get started:

Explore and learn more about what you love, and how it fits in The Climate Economy.

Try things out.

Measure and evaluate.

Specialize and create value in your area of expertise. 

 

Friends

3. Participate and share.

Humans need to feel that their lives have meaning and that they personally have value. Belonging and contributing our strengths and experiences to a community is also a basic human need. To get started:

Share and participate.

Build community.

Build connections.

Build trust.

Contribute your expertise.

 

We know there are lots of big government solutions, corporate issues, social movements and international policies out there that people need to know about. The Climate Economy’s 3-Step Program is something that every individual can undertake, today and every day. At The Climate Economy, we believe that people who embark on our 3-Step Program will naturally increase their knowledge base in the many complicated matters of climate action as they go along. It will lead to increasing everyone’s involvement on a day-to-day basis as well as on a long-term issue basis. It’s a stepping off point. Step off!
