What should I post?


Changing the world may seem like a daunting task. However, every one doing a little good = a lot of good. Remember: Push Yourself is the act of stepping outside of your comfort zone to stir and cultivate a movement that changes the world.

"So, what can I post about? How can I make a difference?"

It can be as simple as picking up some trash on your way into the store or work. Here are some examples of simple to extreme posts in each of the Four Push Yourself Pillars. You can post simple to extreme and everything in between. Every positive action is post-worthy and every post holds others accountable.

PHYSICALLY
Park further away in the parking lot to get some extra steps in your day Climb Mount Everest
 
INTELLECTUALLY
Try a crossword puzzle to strengthen your mind Learn a new language
 
ENVIRONMENTALLY
Turn off the water while you brush your teeth Convert your gas consuming car to an electric car
 
SOCIALLY
Give a compliment to a stranger Go on a mission trip to a third world country
