The 9 Rules of OUR Revolution
#1. Once You’re In, You’re in for Life.
If you commit to being intentional about the impact you want to have on the world, you will always be welcome here. Ascended is a way of life. This is your home and we have your back any way you need it.
#2. This is OUR Revolution.
This is not ours. This is not yours. It is all of ours. We all contribute and make the Revolution positive and possible. There is no guru. We are just a group of people passionately committed to making our mark on the world. It’s everyone’s responsibility to grow, share and spread the impact we’re creating.
#3. We Take Our Environment Very, Very Seriously.
No one does anything alone. The people around you create who you are. If they inspire you, you’ll be inspired. If they depress you, you’ll be depressed. Those around you absolutely must dream as big or bigger and have as much passion or more than you do. There’s no time for those who don’t inspire and support doing the things that matter to you and the world. Get rid of the doubters, and don’t let the empowering ones leave your sight. You are the average of your surroundings. Choose wisely. Being here is a good start!
#4. Invest The Time & Energy to Know Who You Are – No Sleepwalking Allowed!
The better you know yourself, the more likely you are to do work that matters. Study your strengths, know your weaknesses, identify your values, define your success, learn the things that excite and terrify you. Live a life congruent with who you are. Become a self-expert.
#5. There Is No Failure.
The only way to fail is to never start in the first place. To let that idea die inside of you – to leave your song unsung. To never have the courage to dance. If you try, if you take your crack at making a difference, you have already succeeded. Some things will be a home run. Others will not. But everything is learning. And when we commit to taking action, it’s all a victory.
#6. We Are All Experts. Embrace and Develop Your Knowledge.
Live your strengths. Every one of us is expert enough at something to help someone else in a unique way. Discover what that is and put it to work every day. We are all experts and we are all beginners. Constantly offer help and receive it.
#7. We Question Everything.
Always assume there’s another way. Don’t take things for granted just because everyone else does. That’s usually the best reason to stop listening. None of you are here for average. Ask why. Ask how. Ask why not.
#8. We Don’t Do Things For The Money.
Money will never motivate anyone long enough to handle the swings of pursuing an idea. Passion and the desire to make a difference will. Money is important, and we must remember that our talents, positioned the right way, can be very valuable to people. But money takes the backseat, passion and impact take the front. Rarely do people get rich because they pursued riches. They get rich because they focused their life on helping people and changing the world. Then the money starts to show up – and by then, it usually doesn’t matter anyway.
