How We Win The Battle: By Working Together

In the first post of the year, I pointed out that 2021 is the battle year. It’s the turning point, the crux, the pivot, where everything changes. That’s a tough battle. How do we win?

By working together. Yep, that’s right: we fight and win by working together. Every one of us. It’s the only way. We need all hands on deck. We have to redefine success so that we aren’t encouraging our budding entrepreneurs and impressible youth, literal receptacles of our societal runoff, to exploit for financial gain, regardless of injustice. We pivot to mutual gain. We’re going to call it “mutually constructive cooperation,” there are many examples we can look to for this, and we’re going to learn more. We’re taking deliberate efforts to create situations that don’t cause harm. We take into consideration all stakeholders. We develop new ways of doing things that are good for all: the climate, economy and humanity. We earn a living, we protect human well-being, and we strengthen nature. It’s totally possible.

It’s possible, but it’s hard, in that it’s complex. We want to keep things as simple as possible, but these problems we’re facing are big, a lot of people have different ideas of what we should do, and different levels of resources and ability. This is all OK! This is what it means to be human. We’re all different, we all have a role to play. This is, by it’s nature, going to include conflict resolution strategies. We can begin to understand that our differences are our strengths, they should bring us together and not pull us apart. We can begin to understand that many in power will use our differences to divide and conquer, and keep the masses weak. This is a strategy where only a few will win. If we want victory for all, we all embrace our differences and work together, for the benefit of all. 

That sounds great to me. If it does to you also, set up your account on CLEANetwork, take the “Intro-To-Go: Getting Started on CLEANetwork” course, and start your journey to find your niche.
