I heard someone say that today. We are living in a time of movements. I am sure you can tell me about the ones you’ve studied or watched on the news. Just think back a few months ago to the Occupy Movement. It’s easy these days to be a part of a movement. All you gotta do is show up.
It’s also possible to work for somewhere where a movement is happening. Do you know what I mean? Do you work for someone/somewhere where there is a movement that’s happening? Do you go to work – excited to know that you are a part of this movement? It is possible – not matter what job to be a part of a movement. Some times it’s stated, and sometimes everyone there just knows what it is that they do. There is a story. There is something bigger that everyone is striving to do. They are excited because they are a part of something. They are excited because they are a part of the movement.
The identity insight is that being a part of something gives you identity. Being a part of a movement gives you a sense of identity and self That’s not ever a bad thing.
If this is the the for movements, this is also the time to find your identity in a movement that matters. Go check out Kickstarter or Kiva. Go to a TED event or go back to school. Go become a Sea Shepherd. Do something. Be someone. Matter.
