Are you a sparkenationist?

A sparkenation is a word I created to denote:
a spark that ignites passion that leads to action that changes what’s normal.

In my book Changing What’s Normal there are 58 sparkenations.
To see if my book is for you please download the prologue, 3 of the sparkenations, and the table of contents here.

You can purchase here.

Sparkenationists are people who:

Act in the best interests of others
Add value
Bring a sense of wonder to every day
Carry out random acts of kindness
Challenge the status quo
Change the status quo
Co-create change where everyone can win
Co-create change people can actually believe in and make happen
Create memorable moments
Create value
Cultivate curiosity
Deliver value
Do stuff pioneering, breathtaking, and truly innovative?
Do things every day that amaze you
Do well by doing good - thrive in your work and solve problems in your world at the same time
Fufill their personal promise
Help others be accountable
Inspire others by their words and their actions
Laugh a lot
Leave homes, workplaces, communities better by being there when it really matters
Leave a legacy
Listen with their hearts as well as their minds
Make a difference
Pay it forward
Seize the moment
Share inspiring stories
Show appreciation to people
Speak from their hearts
Stand for something
Take responsibility for intentions, feelings, thoughts, and actions
Thrive on the challenges of change
Walk the road less travelled
Won’t die wondering

In living in these ways we ignite passion in people that leads to action that changes what’s normal.

Are you a sparkenationist? You are needed like never before.

Be the difference you want to see in the world.
