What is THE IMPACT?
Dictionary.com defines IMPACT as such:
3. influence; effect: the impact of Einstein on modern physics.
5. the force exerted by a new idea, concept, technology, or ideology: the impact of the industrial revolution.
verb (used with object)
9. to have an impact or effect on; influence; alter: The decision may impact your whole career. The auto industry will be impacted by the new labor agreements.
The ones that don’t matter in this case have been removed. THE IMPACT is the UnRuleE Lifestyle way of describing a point in someones life that drastically alters the course of one’s future. That moment in time that some privilege or tool is granted to them, which in turn enables them to grow, learn, experience what they need to get to the next level of living their dreams.
There are other terms we could have used like grant, scholarship, donation, loan, subsidization, but none of those terms embodied what this particular situation was created to do. Only THE IMPACT seemed to fit the bill.
We know we still haven’t really explained what it is, so here we go. It’s the thought of helping someone with a burning passion acquire a piece, or tool, or class etc, which has an impact on their life in a great and powerful way, and in return, if they truly are living the UnRuleE Lifestyle, they will have a profound impact on the rest of the world through following and living their dreams.
That being said, there are a few prerequisites. The first is that, you have to have the hustle. If this opportunity is granted to you, you must not squander it. You must push forward with everything within you and become that which it is you dream of.
Dream it. Live it.
Following along with that is that fact that you will be held accountable for using THE IMPACT to the fullest. Those who slack, or become lazy and complacent will have THE IMPACT revoked. There is no time to waste when it comes to fulfilling your dreams. And no room within the UnRuleE Lifestyle for slackers or those unwilling to work towards creating their own destiny.
In the words of Tony Gaskins:
“If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to build theirs.”
If you were lucky enough to have been granted THE IMPACT, you better understand what has been presented.
The thought behind THE IMPACT is that life is about constant education. Not necessarily in the go to school and get good grades way, but in whatever way helps you gain knowledge and experience to drive you closer to you goal of living your dreams. No one else will work as hard as you to fulfill your dreams, but UnRuleE wanted to give a lucky few a head start, or lucky bump in the right direction!
UnRuleE was built out of the innate compulsion to create, but also to help others and build a community with the same drive and intentions. Your passions may be different, be it welder, programmer, artist, architect, athlete, etc, but ones who live the UnRuleE Lifestyle have one thing in common, they have a burning passion to make their dreams a reality.
THE IMPACT will start small because UnRuleE is doing the same, but as the movement grows larger, so too will the THE IMPACT. From something as simple as a year of free training from Lynda.com to that aspiring designer or programmer, to eventually a year of college, or a full tuition to a trade school, or a trip to apprentice under a master of a craft.
We want to help make an impact on your life, and in return, all we ask is that you make an impact on the world. We don’t think that’s too much to ask, it’s simply living the UnRuleE Lifestyle. Dream it. Live it. Most importantly, Don’t Break Their Rules, Make Your Own.
