Once you’ve made the differences you need to make in YOUR world, don’t stop there. Move on to making a difference in THE world, for every little bit counts.
I believe in me. I believe in us.

So many humans make resolutions every year. Some make them on New Year’s Day, some make them throughout the year. While I believe the definition behind the word is great (resolution: a firm decision to do or not to do something from Google.com), it is just that. It’s a decision, but it requires no action. You can say you will or won’t do something over and over and over again, but without action, nothing will happen.
The word revolution, on the other hand, I can get behind. The definitions listed for revolution include “a dramatic and wide-reaching change”, “metamorphosis”, and “transformation”. I believe if you want to achieve any resolution, you must start a revolution towards actually making it happen.
And then keep going, even after you achieve it.
Once you achieve something, take whatever you learned and use it to help others do the same. There are quite a few actors and artists that are giving back via MasterClass.com. This is not a sponsored post, as I’ve never actually taken any of the classes, but when I saw the advertisement for it, it made my heart happy to see so many people (such as photographer Annie Leibovitz and comedian/actor Steve Martin) that I’ve admired over the years taking time out of their busy schedules to help others learn their craft.
We should all give back when we achieve something, as there is plenty of room for more and more achievers, dreamers, movers and shakers.
Did you hear that? There is PLENTY OF ROOM.
I love helping others achieve anything that I have. When I worked in the corporate world, I often met with others who wanted to learn what I did or do what I did (Learning Consulting/Instructional Design). I not only would meet with them, but I also connected them with others that I thought could help them along their path as well. I was also asked by my managers to teach about creativity, project management and more to my own teams. When I was a classroom teacher, I helped new teachers during their first year of teaching by being a resource/mentor teacher. I was also often shadowed by high school students and current teachers.
I truly believe in giving back in whatever way you can, as we are all here for each other. We all can make revolutions toward every single resolution we make. I hope to continue doing this throughout my life as I move through each new adventure.

Need a little motivation to help your resolution revolution?
In August 2018, I wrote an open letter to anyone that is at the beginning of something. If you are making resolution or not, read the letter (it’s only a 2 minute read) and hopefully it will help motivate you towards starting or continuing towards something great.
