#AmericasRevival: #ServantLeaders Understand the Game / #InsideOut #EpicCommitment #positivedisruption












Can a concerted effort will arise if we all each seek our own?

Does good will sustain if we turn our hearts away after a time?

Could mental illness be warded off by living a life of servant leadership?


 A life of service for others harvests can foster happiness, and hearts and minds that place people before profit shore up peace from the inside out. Taken like a scientific formula, fomenting unique social enterprises which align one’s interest with the local, national and global communities needs in mind and heart becomes a win-win for the bottom line of the individual and the community-at-large.

Invariably, this can employ an infinite number of business dynamics under the umbrella term social enterprise. Entry into this industry is so easy that even a child can do it by having a lemonade stand that directs a portion of the proceeds towards a social good. In effect, the lemon selling-business kid becomes a social entrepreneur.

In the age of consumerism, that which is immediate appears to trump that which takes time to come to fruition. The making of money slides in as a top priority unannounced and quite rationally. We need money to purchase our food, clothing, shelter and clean water. Some earn it rapidly and in great sums, others slave all year and still live month to month, even week to week. In America, most of us are somewhere in the middle. 

  • Can a life of contentment be had when we put our shoulders to the plow for the good of our families and communities?


I don’t think it can be had. I know it can be had. To get started, we need to decide to just bring epic commitment to such fancy life goals such as leading in service. This may take a change in your lifestyle. The United States of America needs this at its current junction. Bringing our hearts and minds into concert once and for all with consistency that others can bank on and take inspiration from is pivotal to tessellating further growth. Are we not all brothers and sisters? Are we not all living side by side with each other? We don’t have to take on all of the worlds troubles at once, yet we can rest assured that if we go forth with epic commitment, if we follow our unique hearts and bring our minds, then we can manifest change we can believe in.


I know we can. I am doing this, even now. Others are also doing this, day in and day out… servant leadership, as well as  social entrepreneurship. It is as if heart warriors are all around us. We just have to acknowledge that they are there and that they are there because they care. Servant leaders serve and protect us as police officers, as firefighters, as nurses, as paramedics, as teachers, as medics, as business woman and as children. Join the movement that is unstoppable and grow your heart. America needs this kind of revival and the world looks upon America to lead. Bring your consistent spirit to bettering yourself and the people of your community.  That is positive social disruption.

Clinical Teachers: Armies of One / #edchat #criticalthinking #education

It is not the responsibility of empty vessels to create the motivation to learn, but rather, the prerogative to teach, the very responsibility of it, must be entrusted to the teacher. It can be so, that according to a child’s social-economic status, a affluent upbringing can be infused with a ‘comfort space’ of human development not generally experienced in the life of the child who hails from a low-income community. 
This juxtaposition in the human development and daily experiences of the affluent child and the child who lives at or near the poverty line bring a different array of positive and negative forces which impact their general well-being. As these two general sets of children age, the difference becomes more contrasted and is clearly evident at the time both reach middle school years. One need only look at children who receive private schooling as opposed to those who receive public school education in low-income neighborhoods. A child who attends private schooling and then e…

The Golden Rule & The Duty of Critical Thinkers / #socialresponsibility #edchat #TeamUSA

updated 2:24 pm est 11/10/17 The idea of cultivating critical thinkers is easily a lofty ideal purported to be achieved throughout academia and espoused as the hallmark of journalistic integrity.  Achieving the critical thinking mind requires a certain bravery, wherein, once our ability to tap into our own knowledge of content matter is done, we must require it upon ourself to contrast our assessment and infer from an ‘outsiders’ point of view what is true and right and what is inaccurate and, even possibly, the propagandization of a special interest.
.
For the critical thinker, the affinity to discern is attached to our decision to look at the hard truth and favor this over our viewpoints, our political inclinations, and our stance on any given subject. This is hard to do.

In the following essay, I ask what exercise in democracy is achieved if political forces practice varying levels of indoctrination, in effect swaying public interest towards their ‘camp,’ rather than promoting …
