When you think of ending sexual violence, dating abuse, and sexual assault, how will you commit to taking more of an active role in speaking out and taking positive actions? Who will you turn to for INSPIRATION along your journey?
How will you keep yourself motivated when challenges begin facing you, especially when dealing with others who simply don’t seem to care (certainly not as much as you). Educators, activists, and professionals constantly tell me how often they run into “apathy” as their biggest challenge. Helen Keller once said, “Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all – the apathy of human beings.” What a GREAT quote!
When facing naysayers, the key is to keep your focus on what you CAN do. Focus on the positive work being done by you and others around the world. The more you see and hear the positive, the more likely you will believe in positive results for yourself and your work. You will find yourself excited to start off each day’s work, especially when you are pumped up about a new concept and/or idea.
We want to help you continually have inspirational sources throughout the year – to help insure you do not become frustrated by the potential apathy in your community. Here at The Date Safe Project Inc, we are going to be launching an exclusive tele-seminar series starting in the next few months. You will have the opportunity to join in on a telephone conference call with a top expert, educator, activist, and/or professional. You will be provided a medium to be able to submit questions for the person being interviewed and even be able to download the entire interview afterward as an audio file (to listen to on an iPod, through your computer, etc…). You will have access to all of this for a minimal monthly fee.
Who would you like to hear interviewed? Share your answers by leaving a comment on this post. Imagine each month having the opportunity to be moved by the top minds of your colleagues and other allies. Next, you’ll take the ideas (which jumped into your brain as you listened to the interview) and put them into action!
