Whole Champion Glossary of Terms

Responsibility

An impulse experienced individually that causes us to start thinking, feeling, and acting with awareness and intention. Responsibility is the conscious effort to do what’s right in each moment.

Personal Responsibility

Caring for oneself and holding oneself accountable. Personal responsibility is self-love, self-care, and self-work. It’s an investment in our own personal development. Personal responsibility is awareness and balance of mind, body, and spirit. It leads to pride, empowerment, and urges us to be our best.

Social Responsibility

Caring for oneself and others, making a stand, believing in a cause, and taking action to benefit others.

Social responsibility is awareness, compassion, and action. A socially responsible person is someone who gives more than they take. A socially responsible action can be as simple as offering to carry someone’s groceries or encouraging friends to vote in local elections. It could be as involved as participating in a food drop to a village stricken by war or natural disaster or organizing a peaceful march to benefit a worthy cause.

Environmental Responsibility

A conscious awareness that our planet needs care, protection, recovery, and an opportunity to flourish in its natural state. A conscious lifestyle that embraces the protection and nourishment of the environment.

Environmental responsibility is your purposeful effort to do your part for planet Earth. It’s minimizing your ecological footprint by preventing environmental damage through sustainable, recyclable, and green ecological practices. Environmental responsibility is protecting Mother Nature just as you would a family member or a friend.

Whole

A state of harmony, completion, or resolution achieved by a group effort consisting of oneself, others, and the world at large.

Whole is awareness, responsibility, and action for a better world.

Whole is personal, social, and environmental responsibility for a better
world.

Care

Attention to providing what is necessary for the health, welfare, maintenance, and protection of someone or something. Attention or consideration applied to do something (anything) correctly.

An object of concern or attention.

Champion

A champion is someone who stands up for a cause and sees it through completion. A champion of sport, a cause, or an ideology can be an unstoppable force, not relenting until the goal is achieved. Whole champions are those who are driven to achieve. They act with unrelenting care to accomplish good for humanity and the environment. A whole champion leverages a platform based on achievements or a compelling idea to support the greater good.

Awareness

A state of being conscious of or having knowledge of something happening or existing. Awareness is the light that illuminates a situation or a state of mind. Having awareness is knowing the difference between good and bad. A whole champion’s awareness of today’s world motivates participation in stopping the bad and promoting wellbeing at the personal, local, and global level.

Network

An interconnected group of people. From a global perspective, we can see that everything around us is part of a network. Knowing this helps us to appreciate that we as individuals are also deeply connected to each other and the larger environment.

Motivation

An inner force that moves human beings physically, mentally, and spiritually. A voice in our head, the emotion in our heart, and our internal drive to do the right thing whatever that may be.

PLEDGE TO BE A WHOLE CHAMPION

I recognize that our world requires a monumental shift, and that I can help make the world better through awareness, responsibility and action. 

I understand the time is now to step up, take better care of myself, others, and the environment, and make a difference. I pledge to do my best knowing it positively effects the whole world.

Now we want to hear what you have to say. Can you tell us how you think you could make a positive difference in the world?

“The payoffs of courage and effort to create change aren’t always immediately obvious, but they work as a mighty tectonic force  that can shift the future in fundamental ways.”
