How To Convince People To Change

Many activist campaigns struggle because the framing of their mission is not in line with what potential supporters want or need. People are especially interested in saving money, saving time, and more strongly meeting their basic needs and desires.

Money: Does this product cost less than another? Will this lower taxes?

Time: Is this activity convenient and easy to sign up for? Does the location of this business help people access XYZ thing faster?

Care: Does this line up with a person's basic needs and beliefs about the world? Does it give them better access to food or make them healthier? Does it speak to their religious, spiritual, moral, or ethical views?

If you can center your message around at least two of these, then it makes your campaign relatable to a wider audience - people don't care about what you're saying unless it directly impacts them in some way.

It's been a long time folks but I've been hard at work! Here's an early cover design I'm working on for the book version of You Are A Great And Powerful Wizard. It's going to change a lot, fonts and all but I'm feeling excited for the end of 2020 when it's all done!! #zines #zine #book #empowerment #selfcare #affirmation
There is a profound idea that I was introduced to when I first began to meditate - we have the option of thinking, or not thinking, anytime we want to. Emotional suffering may start with an incident, but grows exponentially with our thoughts. Focus on your surroundings, your breathing, or different thoughts and visuals. Better yet, deal with whatever incident caused the thoughts in the first place. Mental control is a skill, and becomes easier with practice. Study meditation or yoga - learn methods of bringing yourself back to what is really happening right now in your direct vicinity.

We've seen things work out before, it very well might do so again. Hope!

We are social creatures. All work done by even the most highly revered individuals relies on countless people supporting them. No one is thriving without the help of others, we are all connected in this together.

This year I am working on changing my life quite a bit, having decided that I no longer want to continue repeating certain patterns that have manifested over the past decade. It's not particularly easy, because there's an attachment to an identity that has come into being, but I know that I have no obligation to perpetuating that identity, even from what others expect from me. There can of course be repercussions for not doing certain things - loss of friends, poverty, and death, to name a few - but these are extreme examples just to highlight that there is still a choice in any situation. What would you rather be doing and what is holding you back? This too can change.

I've been deeply focused on projects this week and feeling a bit shut in from the rain and flooding, but this morning I woke up remembering the bounty of beauty in this world, and how small problems become when you knock yourself out of your routine and travel - even a tiny trip an hour away does wonders, but of course, the longer the better. I am especially excited to return to a few festivals this year in celebration of art and creativity, although am hoping that even more opportunities arise to take me away. Gotta go explore this human experience, it's fantastic out there.

It might not always be comfortable voicing concerns and personal needs, but it's the only way you're going to get what you want. I've fallen all too often into the trap of avoiding conflicts or fearing the repercussions of speaking up when it only prolongs negative feelings. Of course, there are good and bad ways to communicate, especially considering the other person's needs as well as the possibility of misunderstandings (or having an unreasonable personal request). For that reason, bringing up these sensitive subjects is best done using nonviolent communication, voicing what is troubling you, how that makes you feel, what your need is, and a specific request that will make you feel more comfortable. It's not always possible to use in all situations, but will typically make things go more smoothly.
