“The second principle is redefine what it means to have a good life. If you see that your goal in life is a beautiful life where you’re living in a way that’s good for you and the world, then you have a completely different type of activism because it’s one where people have a glint in their eye. They’re in touch with their passion. They’ve got their heart in the life they’re living. They’re living in a way that’s attractive, and people around them start thinking – what are they on? How come they’re so charged up with enthusiasm that they really seem to be more deeply alive than most other people I know? Because there’s a larger life that’s happening through us. It’s like the desire of life to continue the recovery impulse in our world. It acts through us.
One of the ways to live a great life is to have a great story happening through you. This is what I mean by redefining what it means to have a good life. You have a good story that’s happening through you. A good story that wants to keep on going. It doesn’t want to burn out after the first few chapters. That’s why centre stage is how can we do this in a way where we want to keep doing it for as long as we’re here alive on this planet”.
