The 21-Day Challenge toward a Benefit Mindset
“The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The work of life is to develop it. The meaning of life is to give your gift away.” – David Viscott
We live in a world increasingly marked by uncertainty and division – social, political, ecological and spiritual. Yet out of all of these divides a valuable insight is becoming clear – the wellbeing of the individual is indivisible from the wellbeing of the whole. This means we must develop our own wellbeing in concert with others if we hope to heal these divides in our lives and create a future of greater possibility.
We can develop individual and collective wellbeing through conscious practice. The Benefit Mindset 21-Day Challenge opens a gateway to becoming an everyday leader. Everyday leaders intentionally call upon their strengths to carry out everyday acts that benefit their own wellbeing and the wellbeing of the communities of which they are a part.
The first seven days is dedicated to practicing different ways of seeing, ‘waking up’ to notice new details in the world. This includes responding with curiosity and an open mind to perspectives outside of our own.
The second seven days is a practice of sensing the needs of others by widening the circle of caring. This practice involves a ‘growing up’ by opening the heart and responding to others’ needs with compassion.
The final seven days is a call to ‘show up’ by being present to moments of deep potential in ourselves and others. Leaning into courage enables us to open the will and allow our unique strengths to be called upon.

During the 21-Day Challenge you will record your insights and reflections toward becoming an everyday leader. Here are some tips:
- Take part together in a group to cultivate healthy sharing, discussion and collaboration.
- Reflective writing pairs well with a mindfulness practice of your choosing.
- When recording your insights remember to practice self-compassion (this is a process!).
- Limit judgement – let your words flow from a place of inner-knowing.
