Every once in a while a giant boulder shifts and a billion little rocks are influenced. They roll from their comfortable home nestled in the dirt, rumbling and rolling until the the avalanche begins. Some things die in its wake and the landscape is forever changed. What was the catalyst? One event or the cumulative effect of many?
YOUR LIFE GAME CHANGER
Superimpose this analogy on your life. What event will change it all? What shift will be your game changer? I'll come back to this in depth on my Facebook Live event next week... (see below for details!)
We can also superimpose this analogy on the world. Our world is experiencing what I call a Consciousness R-Evolution. The cumulative effect of an avalanche of individuals willing to do their own personal work, inner healing and deep inquiry into purpose, who we really are as souls and the meaning of life, has created new levels of connection and awareness that are changing the game.
ECONOMIC GAME CHANGER
We are hitting a stage of critical mass where 'purpose,' 'social good' and 'environmental awareness' are all becoming mainstream concerns. From mass awareness of climate change to the mainstream conversation of sustainability and corporate social responsibility... It wasn't always this way.
It's happening because WE are becoming more self aware. Who knew the self help shelf would be the catalyst? As we learn how to change the stories of our personal lives and increase our awareness and impact as global citizens we realize we can (and ought to) change the story of the world.
ENTER THE CEO OF BLACKROCK
Today Larry Fink, Chairman and CEO of BlackRock, a multi trillion dollar behemoth of a financial investment firm wrote a letter to the heads of the largest companies in the world essentially telling them, “To prosper over time, every company must not only deliver financial performance, but also show how it makes a positive contribution to society.” You and I may know that but this is a sea change for corporate America. Fink is a boulder.
YOU CAN LEVERAGE THIS CHANGE
While companies have been dealing with the growing pains of sustainability and corporate social responsibility (the rippling waves in the sea change) they've also been taking turns with their comfy blanket principled in the free market economy, namely, an economy with no regulation where profit is the only concern.
Still a shift toward a more purposeful culture has long been underway.
Private equity institutions have also been expanding in their commitments to responsible investing and holy moly - the mainstreaming of ESG has been waiting for day like today, for a boulder to make its move. *ESG stands for environmental, social and governance factors on par with financial performance as indicators of a company's value)
"We also will continue to emphasize the importance of a diverse board. Boards with a diverse mix of genders, ethnicities, career experiences, and ways of thinking have, as a result, a more diverse and aware mindset."
Larry Fink, CEO BlackRock
"AWARE MINDSET" because that's the true game changer.
To all of us who work in the field of personal development, corporate consulting, law, finance, non profit - or work in corporatations, Fink's remarks act as that giant builder that CAN influence a billion rocks (pun intended). We are the momentum, the force behind, the rumblers and rollers, the guides of the avalanche. We are needed more than ever to step in and lead, guide and teach.
Our influence on the new dream is more important than ever because what we know about the mainstreaming of anything -it gets watered down. The potency drops and the depth distorted. Whoever leads the change embeds the instructions.
THIS IS OUR TIME
We are needed to train, coach, teach, guide, lead, speak and create the curriculum for the consciousness revolution.
Are you a leader of the Conscious Revolution? If this speaks to you then please join me...

"Leveraging and Steering the Consciousness Revolution"
*Use this meeting planner for your time zone
I'll be talking about the CONSCIOUSNESS REVOLUTION, what it is, what's influencing it, how it's impacting your emotional compass right now and how you can use your business, platform, work or philanthropy to influence the outcomes we are collectively 'hoping' to achieve.
If you're a leader in the corporate space are you aware of this radical shift in your team and how is your organization responding to the deeper needs of a workforce craving depth, truth, transparency, mindfulness, purpose, and connection?
I'm asking you to please come and participate, let's discuss this together... your comments are so important!
One of my coaches once said, "Hope is not a strategy." I've rarely used the word 'hope' since. But one thing I know for sure, is that when I was a forest activist in the 1990's living in ancient redwoods and taking a total stand for my beliefs, if I didn't have hope, there would have been no hope! There was no such thing back then as ESG!
WHERE'S YOUR SEAT AT THE TABLE?
Hope is an essential ingredient AND we need a strategy to insert ourselves in the dialogue, the unfolding of how companies behave in our world, on our earth. We have to make our seats. There is great opportunity and I want to open the dialogue on leveraging it to change the world. A few things are first required of us... come join me and let's explore this together.
