Paying Knowledge Forward
Posted Friday, March 8, 2013 at 1:38 PM
Those of us here have been blessed with this information to better ourselves, humanity, and the planet. I don't know about you, but I want everyone to know how awesome this lifestyle is! I could be "preachy" with my parents for they have health problems that need attention but others are going to be turned off by this. However, we can still spread the knowledge with patience and observation. One of my friends at work was a vegetarian for years and when I talked to her about doing the Kick Start, she jumped on board because she was just waiting for this little push to go fully vegan. I've had two other coworkers approach me: one wants to get his health back in line so he's doing mostly plant-based (he still wants to keep fish for now) and the other saw Forks Over Knives and wants to do vegan for 12 weeks. I post on my FaceBook page all the yummy recipes I make and have another friend I've sent information to when she commented on how great I was eating.
We can do so much by leading with example without outwardly telling everyone we know that they should turn vegan too. My personal goal was to enlighten at least one person towards this lifestyle and now I have multiple!
Anyone else have success and/or tips on how we can pay it forward?
Be the change you wish to see in the world...
