Note: Even though we are a family project, we must tether ourselves to a vision. We must know our why! We must be held accountable.
Bonding and having fun with the family supporting causes that we believe in through creation of digital art projects.
Helping people locally and in the Cardano community by giving to charity. May it be contagious, bringing people with us on this amazing journey.
Below is a list of our values and ways we intend to support these values:
Family and close-friends are vital. We must ensure that we spend quality time together. Time management is a big deal. Never let work, projects or hobbies get in the way of relationship with family and close friends.
Finding ways to involve family with activities.
Thinking about how we can grow together.
Silence and meditation. Learning to be at rest and at peace.
Affirmations. Being careful of the negativity that is out there. Filtering out the noise. Self affirmations/self talk are great ways to reprogram our minds.
Not wasting time on activities that will bring us down. Focusing on things/people that will lift us up. Surrounding ourselves with positive influences.
Being visionaries. Knowing our why and our goals and what we want to accomplish. We must have a solid compass heading. What are we doing right now, today, that will get us to where we need to go tomorrow? We must take charge and have vision. Use of vision boards and keeping in front of us consistently. Consistency is undefeated!
Exercise. We must be of sound mind and body. If everything is in good shape but our bodies are in poor health, everything else will fail. We must have balance, eat right, exercise and get plenty of rest.
Reading. Build a library. Read good motivational books. Take classes. Learn something new. Be care of reading negative material. Focus on reading material that will grow yourself in the direction you need to go.
Writing. Getting in the habit of journaling. Blogging and writing in my own personal journal is what I do.
Protecting against burn out. Learning to say no. Protecting our schedule.
If we aren't having fun, it isn't worth doing.
When we get together, we should feel lifted up! If things start to become stagnate or a drag, please let us know.
Giving is at the core of what we do. It makes us feel good to be able to give back.
Giving to good causes that the community approves of and looking at ways we can get people more involved on a local level.
Make giving and community participation fun and competitive.
Be humble with people.
Proactively listen and understand.
Find common ground in disagreements.
Accept responsibility. Don't accuse others.
Show people grace and respect. Honor people and their time.
Trying to do the right thing at all times.
Putting others first and to be courteous and respectful.
Seeking ways to improve every aspect of Fire Animalz (giving, charity, artistic production, social, marketing, etc)
Trust & Transparency
Publishing charity donations in a timely manner and doing so consistently.
Addressing issues head-on.
Being reachable for people.
