Everyone wins when there is a strong sense of community. For community to flourish and make the world better, it needs three things in equal parts:
- Inspiration – a passionate leader who inspires others with their own energy and action, and who lifts the community up with them and fosters an inclusive culture.
- Vision – a shared sense of purpose or dream for something better will have the power to overcome differences within the group and maintain the momentum towards the end goal.
- Gutsy Crew – this is what makes or breaks the community. The power of the people, showing up, doing the work and spreading the message.
So how can you help improve community? If you see something that needs change, why not start your own movement and inspire others to get involved. Or try volunteering your time or expertise to one of the many amazing organisations already out there (like Yoga Tools for Schools Inc).
And if you are already part of a community, then invite others to join in and share the work that is being done, like sharing this wonderful community magazine you’re reading now!
“Never doubt that a small
group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world:
indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.”
~ Margaret Mead
