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.
