2015: Lights, Camera, Action!
January 10, 2015
Doesn't matter which way it's sliced, action always beats intention. Action represents the very distance that separates our dreams from our reality. The question then becomes, what kind of action creates the highest impact? I've looked at this question many times over the past few months. All of my combined life experiences loop me right back around to this...
"If you focus on how you can help, how you can serve other people, and how you can make the world a better place, nothing will be impossible for you. If you help people get what they want from life, you can get anything you want out of life." - Zig Ziglar
How long will it take to turn things around on this planet if people everywhere adopted this mindset? What are we capable of when we Unite for a common purpose? How many need to jump first before we decide to follow?
Time to take the leap...
Here's my plan. It's just the beginning. If you're inspired, donate $1 to help make it happen. Want to get involved? Email me. A wise man once said, taking bold focused action, creates explosive results. No more wasting time. The mission starts now...

"Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who are alive."
by Uwe Uehle
The empower it forward project is an idea whose time has come.
Think global - act local is a philosophy everybody is familiar with. There is a latent desire in each of us to contribute with our own gifts and inner potential towards ideas that are much bigger than we are as individuals.
Nothing is more rewarding than to make another being happy. This is one element of the unconditional love often being talked about - but what does it take to get there?
Imagine a world in which individuals decide to empower others no matter what the circumstances. Can we see & feel the real beauty that is at the core of every being we come in contact with, no matter how many layers of conditioning are hiding the true essence?
We live in times of much confusion and uncertainty about the future of our species. Are our so called leaders really able to deal with the problems humanity is facing?
The empower it forward movement tries to counter the division of people on all levels with a focus on love & unity.
Envision a world in which all the creative potential is being released by a people that does not focus on projecting criticism anymore but employs methods of tangible empowerment towards each other to enable everybody to live to the fullest regardless of personal background or circumstances.
A smile or random act of kindness is a simple act of unconditional love that can not only transform an individual - but impact communities and even larger groups of people.
Now imagine what the creation of opportunities, support of causes and empowerment towards self-sustainability can do for an individual and an entire culture.
When people make a conscious decision to help with any form of suffering they come across - being it poverty or lack of basic living condition supplies like water or food - they will realize the power that is latent in each of us.
You have probably heard the expression that to change something you need to build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete?
Do you agree that we have arrived at a point where the old model of competition and scarcity should be made obsolete by a world of exchanging value of any kind based on mutual empowerment towards building sustainable communities and a way of life that promotes harmony with nature and the environment?
How about we shift our consumer behavior towards supporting businesses and commerce that is not focused on profits but on how much sustainability can be created and how many lives we may impact with our purchase?
How about becoming an active part of a movement that is focused on maximizing sustainability and empowerment month after month on all levels of society from individual to communities that just need that initial support to kick start a new wave of decentralized but interconnected mutually empowering communities in alignment with the growing awareness that teaching somebody how to fish is of more long lasting value than just giving one or a few fish?
