Be an Agent for Positive Change, With Robyn Stratton-Berkessel – PS044
Positive Change, Episode Introduction
Many of us come to an awareness – some sooner and some later – that we want to have a positive impact in all that we do. I share the “why”, the “what” and the “how” of bringing it together to make it happen. My purpose – my “why” – is to help you become an agent for positive change, so you can have the positive impact in the world you know you're capable of. When you find you own “why” – your own calling and path – you're hugely invigorated and energized to go out to do your best work. You're able to focus your sense of purpose and your contributions both of which add deeper meaning to all you do.
This is really valuable content that I’m extremely excited to share. This is a short episode of 20 minutes.
Discovering your Voice – your Story
Being an agent for positive change comes from putting your passion out there authentically. Gaining clarity around your own story – how the threads of your personal history – all of it – the highs, the lows and the in-betweens – inform who you are and your “why”. You learn from your successes and you learn from your failures. Through a well-designed process, you learn to identify when you feel most energized, and when you are most depleted. With that sense of your personal wholeness – your entire being – you find your integrity, your voice, and that's a prerequisite to being an agent for positive change.
The more you do this kind of work, the more you experience positive changes in yourself. This then is amplified, meaning you also co-create positive change with others, and it begins to spread.
People begin to feel energized, uplifted, empowered, when they focus on what they love to do, when they feel at their best, when they start to see positive results from their efforts. At work when their ideas are heard and make a difference, they experience a whole different energy from when they’re just going through the motions without a sense of purpose or contribution, or they don’t feel valued or appreciated. Most people want to do good, and feel valued, and appreciated and the way we do that is in relationship with others. We can't do this work alone.
