The Power of Taking a Stand

The  FOUR YEARS.GO. initiative is a commitment to build the collective will for the transformation of how we live on this planet.

The most  powerful first step an individual can make is to take a stand for this transformation.

When we have taken a stand, the world shifts. When we have taken a stand new possibilities and opportunities show up, that weren’t evident before. We see the world with new eyes.

Taking a stand is always for something, never against or in opposition to. Positions create opposition and resistance. Taking a stand creates an opening, and an opening creates room for other people to be involved.

Taking a stand is something we do despite the circumstances. It is something we do from our hearts, from our passion. Against the odds. When we take a stand, we commit to something coming into being that would not happen without taking a stand.

Taking a stand allows for the impossible to become possible, and for the possible to become real. Without someone taking a stand, nothing important happens. It is an essential step in creating our new world.

From our stand, we take action; and from having taken a stand our actions have a power and effectiveness that they never would have without taking a stand. Our stands are nothing if we never take action, of course. And without a stand our actions lack power.


Multiplying Your Impact

Invite your friends, loved ones and colleagues to take a stand with you for a thriving, just and sustainable world to be the guiding principle of our time. And invite them to take the actions that are consistent with that commitment. When you invite others, it multiplies the difference you make. When everybody does this, our power grows exponentially, and the numbers grow very fast.

200 million people standing for creating a powerful, just and sustainable world by 2014 will be an awesome manifestation of collective will. The actions we  take collectively inside of our stands can deliver on the promise of our time. This is the promise of the FOUR YEARS.GO initiative.

Take your stand now, and invite your friends to do the same.

Join Lynne Twist on December 10, 2010 for a special conference call

On December 10, from 1-2 pm Pacific time, Lynne Twist, co-founder of the Pachamama Alliance and author/founder of The Soul of Money, will host a conference call for people who have “signed” the FOUR YEARS. GO. declaration, committing themselves to shifting the direction of life on Earth to a flourishing and sustainable future for all by the end of 2014 . . . and are ready to activate that commitment by inviting others to sign the declaration too. If you haven’t declared your stand yet, do it now!

Are you ready to take the next step?

If you are ready to help spread the word about FOUR YEARS.GO., you are invited to be personally trained by the co-founder of the Pachamama Alliance, Lynne Twist!

The call is designed to inspire and empower anyone who is interested in inviting people around them to make the 4YG commitment. That could mean talking to your mother at a holiday dinner, engaging the members of your Rotary club, setting up a table outside the local market or speaking to thousands of people at a conference you are attending.

People who are actively engaging others and inviting them to take the 4YG stand will be the heart and soul of the success of the FOUR YEARS. GO. Commitment campaign.

Some bold souls will become “4YG Mobilizers,” those precious and audacious ones who will do whatever it takes to ensure that we have enough people from all parts of the globe taking and spreading the 4YG Commitment to cause the success of FOUR YEARS.GO.  Will you be a Mobilizer?

Whether you just want to get some insight into how to raise the subject of humanity’s future with your friends and family, or you are ready to go all out as a “4YG Mobilizer,” please join us for this Conference Call to learn more.
