Join the Movement
The Be You Be Sure Project is on a multi-media mission to help the members of our generation pursue purpose. We are here to eradicate learned helplessness, to unleash the human capabilities dormant in our generation. We are capacity building for the Age of Freedom. We are here to shatter disillusionment and the low self-esteem stagnating youth populations worldwide. We believe in possibility. We are here to help our generation overcome economic failings and sustainability issues through innovation and collaboration. We are here to share the blindingly bright truth that we can create lives of value and transform our world when we come together to make our own opportunities.
Fortune favors the bold. We’ve been researching for years about our generation and the decade of life known as your twenties. This wisdom, based on psychology, philosophy, and elements of political science, covers some of the cognitive hurdles one must cross in emerging adulthood. Consider this the secular humanist backbone of our project. Our goal is for readers to grow one.
Our Homo sapien minds function in similar ways. Yet, no two people can ever share the same exact life experience, opinions, or beliefs. Humans are social creatures – vulnerable in our need for one another. Compassion will help you act with sensitive strength when conflict and differences arise to do what’s best for the bigger picture. Meet others halfway in the heart where building community starts.
People have likes and dislikes. Every time you put yourself out there, criticism can appear. People will tell you, you can’t, you won’t. You’re too much of this. You’re not enough of that. Sometimes it’s constructive. Othertimes it’s a judgment. Live your insights, and shrug off the haters – or resign yourself to a lifetime of playing small. What you have to say, and what you have to offer matters. Do your best, and fuck the rest.
Seize self control. Now is the time to participate. Life ain’t as awful as it seems when we have goals and leg work to do. If you’re not happy, change it. There’s a place you belong; people and a purpose to plug into. Resilience builds as you keep going. Stability forms alongside commitment, and this balance is wonderful. It’s not enough to dream. Answer the call. Hang up the phone. Do something.
