Being, Believing, Doing

The model distinguishes between three ways in which doing good can be present in our lives:

  • Believing – our choices of perceptions and attitudes.
  • Being – our 'inner space' of feelings and emotions that reflected in our presence and energy.
  • Doing – our actions and behaviors There are various interactions between the three dimensions - they affect each other and are influenced by one another, so it is a dynamic and flexible process.
The ripples of impact

The Doing Good Model believes in the ripple effect. When the individual is connected to his/her own values with a doing good mindset, it is then reflected on their immediate surroundings and outwards, influencing their organization, and impacting the society as a whole.
