PRACTICAL adjective. concerned with the actual doing or use of something rather than with theory and ideas.


Below, you will find action steps that you can engage in throughout your normal day to day lives that fit with our Every Warrior mission.

Why? Because YOU when you DO SOMETHING in your everyday life, you are adding to the culture we are fighting for...one of personal responsibility to influence the world around us.

HEY WARRIOR! Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life.


Random things you can do to support those around you!

  • Listen to what the other person has to say, without trying to fix them or their situation.

  • Be open to receiving support. Then give support out of the understanding of what it means to find support. 

  • Check in on your friends regularly. Send a text. Make a phone call. Ask them how they are doing.

  • Be ready and willing to have a simple conversation with someone who you know is having a hard time. Grab a meal. Sit on the tailgate. Be a safe place to just talk it out.

  • Look for the "little things" in the lives of those around you and make much of it. No fluff. No awards. Just pay attention and celebrate their wins, no matter how big or small. 

  • Be that friend that does not give up on them.

  • Everybody loves food! Show up on their front doorstep with a meal. Whether it's home cooked or take out.  Bigger need? Two words: Meal Train. 

  • Never underestimate the power of a simple, heartfelt hug from a brother or sister.


Random things you can do to CONNECT TO THE WORLD AROUND YOU!

  • Get out of your house or dorm room and get to know the people around you.

  • Join a club, interact with parents at your kids' school, get involved with a local church or faith group, participate in social gatherings that interest you.

  • Miss someone? Call them & tell them. Parents, family, friends, siblings, grandparents...whoever it is. Make the call.

  • Take a personality profile assessment such as the Enneagram test and find out how you are wired and why you are the way you are.

  • Have a friend that needs support? Or see a coworker struggling? Invite them to have coffee or share a meal. Don't really know tham? This is the perfect way to get to know them.


Random things you can do to ENSURE YOU ARE BEST EQUIPPED!

  • Find a leadership podcast. Grab a new book. Fill your heart and mind with good, quality content. Stretch yourself.

  • Learn a new hobby/trade and teach someone how to do what you learned.

  • Surround yourself with people that stretch you. Build new relationships that sharpen you.

  • Meet once a week with a trusted friend or mentor that loves you and will help shoulder your burden, hold you accountable, press you further, and cheer you on.

  • Explore your faith and spirituality...whatever that may look like and wherever you may be. 

  • Practice vulnerability. One of the best ways to grow is to allow yourself to be fully seen with those you trust and/or those who need the experience you have.

  • TALK! Have a place you can go consistently (weekly/bi-weekly/monthly) and talk to a professional counselor or trusted mentor/leader/pastor. Everyone needs someone they can talk to about anything. 

  • Practice good and healthy boundaries.

  • Don't stop. Failure is your greatest teacher. Keep going. Keep learning. Keep growing.

  • FIGHT for your own mental, relational, emotional, and spiritual health. 

  • Practice good physical health...in a way you enjoy. Exercise, work out, meditate, yoga, walk, etc. 


Random things you can do to mobilize and influence your world!

  • Have a friend that has a need? Go meet it. Own the responsibility.

  • Know of someone going through something that you have been through? Talk to them and use your experience to guide them through.

  • See a need in the world around you that you would like to meet? Gather some friends and meet it! Need someone to believe in you? Let's talk.

  • Chase the dream deep down inside your heart that maybe only you know about. Need help? We can coach you through that.

  • Let your voice be heard. Speak up. Fight for what you believe in in such a way that advocates for the WIN. 

  • Find that place where you can make a difference and go volunteer there! Want to help kids grow to become thriving members of society? Get involved with your local school and get to work. 

  • Do something without having to be asked. See a need? Meet the need! Whether it's picking up a piece of litter or creating a charity that fills a void, or anything in between and beyond.
