I was having a conversation with somebody I’d mentioned this quote to around a decade ago.
“Don’t fight the existing reality, create a new reality which makes the old one obsolete.” – Buckminster Fuller
The person was somewhat irked at the time by the ‘Cheeky B**stard’ Quote when she was pouring her life and soul into her attempts to shift the prevailing paradigm.
But I’ve spoken to many people in the paradigm-shifting business who’ve experienced burnout from banging their heads against institutional walls.
Rebels and mavericks have to be masters of two worlds. They have to create the new 🌍 paradigm whilst not starving in the present world.
🔥 Burnout in the ‘Telling others to be sustainable’ business world is common! 💡
In our journey towards a sustainable, socially just and soul-satisfying future, we often find ourselves in a constant battle against the current reality.
We strive to convince those who have thrived in the existing paradigm to change their ways, to relinquish their wealth, success, and power. But this struggle can leave us exhausted and disheartened.
💪 It’s time to shift our approach! 🌱
Instead of trying to change the minds of the winners in this game, let us become real explorers, pioneers, and leaders.
It’s time to channel our energy into creating new pathways that make the old reality obsolete. Let’s build a brave new world where sustainability and prosperity go hand in hand, inspiring others to follow our lead.
✨ Forge your own path! ✨
Rather than solely focusing on convincing others, let’s focus on demonstrating the possibilities of a new reality. Let’s show the world what can be achieved when we align our actions with our sustainability values and carve out a pathway towards a brighter future.
🌟 Lead the way! 💡
By becoming the change we wish to see, we become catalysts for transformation. It’s time to embrace our role as innovators and trailblazers. Let’s pioneer sustainable solutions, champion ethical practices, and inspire others to join us in shaping a world where sustainability thrives.
🚀 Together towards a brave new world! 🌍
I invite all like-minded individuals who are passionate about being real humans not widgets in the capitalist system, to join together on this exciting journey. We collaborated our way to the top of the evolutionary tree.
Let’s unite as a community of change-makers, supporting and encouraging each other as we navigate uncharted territory. Together, we can create a new reality that renders the old one obsolete.
