Helping Fulfill the Ultimate Destiny of the United States of America
An Invitation to Help Establish a National Network of CAN DO! Community Economic Development Resource Centers for Self-help, Empowerment and Capacity Building to Enable Individuals, Organizations and Communities Realize More of Their Potential and Expand Their Capacity to Help Solve the Global Social, Economic and Environmental Challenges We Face Together on SpaceShip Earth. By Charles Betterton, MSCED Copyright 2012 by Universal Stewardheirship, Inc. Preliminary Draft Version 1.0 September, 2012
The following pages excerpted from this forthcoming publication share the general concept and examples of specific proposals for accomplishing the vision it presents for a United State of Americans. Our intent for the advance publication of these pages is to invite cocreative participation in the completion and publication of the book digitally, in print and webinars. Because this is a work in progress, there is some duplicate content. The final publication will incorporate significant recent developments including the Benefit Corporation model, the Crowd Funding provisions of the JOBS Act and the evolution of the initial vision to combine Community Economic Development principles and practices with these unprecedented resources.

A Message from the Author
Has your life ever felt like a twisted (or perhaps even broken) Rubik’s Cube? My life certainly has, and sometimes even after years of study and work on myself, I would let myself fall into the pit of discouragement, and feel depressed, or overwhelmed. Then, once again I would remember that I am a creative genius and the architect of my destiny. I would practice the principles of successful living and would once again enjoy alignment with Universal Laws. I would remember to believe in me and in the Creative Process.

As I shared the stories of my ups and downs with my coaches and Mastermind group, we discovered that all of us had experienced the same process in our lives. There had come a point in time when each of us wanted to grow personally, developing in many directions in order to realize more of our potential, find and fulfill our life’s purpose, and learn how to manifest our ultimate destinies. “Ultimate destiny?” we asked ourselves. “What does that really mean? What does it entail?” We began the search for answers by getting out a flip chart and creating some quizzes. We put those quizzes on the Internet and asked people to answer the questions they presented. As we reviewed the input from the public, we again got out the flip chart and brainstormed the concept of Ultimate Destiny. We listed the 12 areas or facets of ultimate success in life that had been identified in the answers from the quizzes. We also looked at examples of individuals who had been recognized for living their ultimate destiny and helping other fulfill theirs.

1

These areas were: Personal Growth and Potential Attaining Financial Freedom Enjoying Loving Relationships Enjoying Optimal Health Raising Your Consciousness Living in Peace, Joy, and Balance Fulfilling Your Life Purpose Achieving Ultimate Success in Business or Career Attaining Spiritual Enlightenment Fostering Global Sustainability Harnessing Your Creative Power Making a Difference, Leaving a Legacy As we began exploring and experimenting with these facets of successful living, looking for ways that we and others could begin fulfilling our ultimate destiny, we began to see that it was like the picture on the cover of a puzzle box, and we created the Ultimate Destiny Success Puzzle. We developed the concept and outline for a series of books on how to Discover and Manifest Your Ultimate Destiny. We also created the Ultimate Destiny Hall of Fame Awards to recognize individuals who are living their ultimate destiny while helping others manifest their own. Next, we started conducting research on the best tested and proven resources for achieving success in each area. We started writing short articles and quizzes for each of the 12 areas that led to fulfilling one’s ultimate destiny. We also included selfassessment quizzes, application exercises, implementation methods, strategies, and systems designed to help anyone interested in realizing their ultimate success to be able to do so in the shortest amount of time and with the lowest investment of money. After months of research and development, testing and refining, we are now ready to share Manifesting Your Ultimate Destiny with others like you who want to Realize More of Your Potential; Attain Financial Freedom; Enjoy Loving Relationships; Enjoy Optimal 2

Health; Raise Your Level of Consciousness; Live in Peace, Joy, and Balance; Fulfill Your Life Purpose; Achieve Ultimate Success in Business or Career; Attain Spiritual Enlightenment; Foster Personal and Global Sustainability; Harness Your Creative Power; Make a Difference and Leave A Legacy. As a result of studying and applying the breakthrough technologies and exercises presented in Manifesting Your Ultimate Destiny, you will be empowered to embody Paul J. Meyer’s formula: “Whatever you can vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon must inevitably come to pass.” -- Paul J. Meyer You will learn how to vividly imagine your ultimate destiny, and will enjoy accelerated success because of your ardently held desires. The self-discovery work you do will reinforce your sincere beliefs. And the goal-setting and strategic planning exercises you complete will help ensure that you always act enthusiastically positively, effectively, and efficiently as you design and manifest your ultimate destiny which must inevitably come forth! Now we have adapted most of the exercises and content from our programs initially designed to help individuals discover and manifest more of their ultimate destiny into this publication with several examples of ways that the United States of America might fulfill more of our national Ultimate Destiny. We invite you to jloin us in the cause and in this campaign. Thank you!

Charles Betterton, founder of Ultimate Destiny and creator and coauthor of the Ultimate Destiny Success System with the Small Group Discussion Version.

Helping the United States of America Fulfill Its Ultimate Destiny
"America’s destiny is not power. . . . it is light.” -- Benjamin Franklin
Our ultimate vision for America is seeing (and helping) it fulfill its ultimate destiny as envisioned by Ben Franklin and as inscribed on the Statue of Liberty. We understand that is something like “Liberty, enlightening the world”.

Helping the USA Fulfill Its Ultimate Destiny of Enlightenment 4

More specifically, we envision the establishment of a national (and then international) network of thousands of local, non-profit Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers. These Centers for Successful Living, based on 40 years of research, development and award-winning prototypes, will provide access to Successful Living Skills for the 21st Century to help individuals, organizations and communities realize more of their potential and enable and empower them to help solve the increasing global social, economic and environmental challenges we face together.

The United State of Americans
Red, White, Black, Brown or Yellow, We are all evolving human beings. Rich, or poor, some even entrepreneur, We live and work in one global economy. Christian, Jew, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim or other, We are all spiritual beings having a human experience. North, South, East, or West, even in the Territories, We move through space together at thousands of miles per hour. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, or neither, We are Americans first, living together in One Nation. Let us stand together united and not let anything or anyone divide us, As we remember our rich legacy and fulfill our ultimate destiny.

A Declaration of Inner-Dependence and Inter-Dependence
Once again we hold these truths to be self-evident as we collectively remember, honor and fulfill the ultimate destiny entrusted to us as citizens of the United States of America, one nation under God, with Life, Liberty, and Happiness for all. Our ultimate destiny as citizens is to actualize our inherent potential, individually and collectively, to help empower, enlighten and evolve ourselves, our brothers and sisters and the global community we share that Bucky Fuller referred to as Spaceship Earth. Our Founding Fathers and Mothers were inspired by inner guidance to establish the foundation upon which inner Wisdom and interdependence could help foster the pursuit, and the realization of Life, Liberty and Happiness for all. The ultimate destiny of the United States of America is to enlighten, empower and elevate our consciousness to the realization that we are one people, living in one global community, with only one future that we are destined to co-create together. © Charles Betterton 2010 www.UltimateDestinyland.com/usa.htm

Introduction to the Implementation Strategy

Solving Our Personal, Community, National and Global Ultimate Destiny Success Puzzles!
In a recent workshop, Ultimate Destiny University asked participants to brainstorm answers to the following question:
“Given the global economic and environmental crises, what attitudes and skills can help us discern and apply more positive, creative, conscious and sustainable approaches?

Here are some of the answers we received:
Awakening to our spiritual identity. Realizing more of our inherent potential. Harnessing our creative mind power. Flowing our energy to solutions rather than problems. Remembering who we really are and why we are here. Fulfilling our life purposes and missions. Making a difference and leaving a legacy. Loving, serving and blessing others. Maintaining a positive mental attitude. Applying creative thinking and problem-solving. Manifesting stewardship over the talents and treasures entrusted to us by God/Spirit/Source/Creator.

Expanding the Circle of Success

Establishing A Network of Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers to Help Empower People and Communities and Help Create and Save Jobs By Providing Resources and Expanded Capacity to Solve Personal, Community and Global Success Puzzles We are proposing, and presenting an outline for the establishment of a national (and then international) network of thousands of local, non-profit Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers. These Centers for Successful Living, based on 40 years of research, development and award-winning prototypes, will provide access to Successful Living Skills for the 21st Century to help individuals, organizations and communities realize more of their potential and enable and empower them to help solve the increasing global social, economic and environmental challenges we face together. Community Economic Development includes a focus on three areas: Self-help; Empowerment and Capacity Building. In our experiences as community organizers, disaster relief and community economic development specialists, we have found in the community visioning and strategic planning exercises we have facilitated, that the highest answers to the question: “What are the greatest challenges and obstacles facing our community?" have usually been “the lack of vision and leadership within government” and “the need for greater citizen participation in government.” When we would then ask “What are the positive corrective measures that could be taken to address those challenges?” , we have almost always gotten answers about the need for having expanded access to resources, models and success stories of how other organizations and communities have successfully addressed similar problems. After several years of testing and refining various approaches to local community development and empowerment resource centers, our team has developed an outline for the proposed establishment of a national network of CAN DO! Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers. 7

The Centers (based on 40 years of experience) will provide resources for self-help, empowerment and capacity building to enable individuals, organizations and communities to realize more of their potential and expand their capacity to help solve global economic and environmental challenges. A one-page overview on the project is available at SOPADA for Empowerment Resource Centers. An example of the invitations that will be sent to Mayors and other elected officials is at Sample Letter of Invitation to City Officials along with the Site Selection Factors for Empowerment Resource Centers. The CAN DO! Resource Centers will enable millions of people to have expanded access to state-of-the-art development training programs that are usually targeted to the top 10% of Corporate America. We are preparing to launch a campaign to Expand the Circle of Success in America by facilitating the donation of 100 million dollars worth of development training resources to and through some of the 500,000 potential local sponsor agencies we have already identified. These CAN DO! Community Empowerment Resource Centers will be staffed by certified Empower Mentors™ and Successful Living Coaches. As a result of the educational programs that will be provided, participants and their families will learn how to apply Successful Living Skills, including Basic Successful Living Skills, Master Successful Living Skills, and Ultimate Successful Living Skills. Non-profit organizations will discover innovative approaches to higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. Companies will benefit from higher levels of productivity and profitability. Communities will benefit from a shared vision, higher levels of cocreative participation in government and all areas of living together and America will fulfill its ultimate destiny of enlightenment as a fully actualizing society. In response to President Obama's call for Americans to share ideas as solicited by Change.org when he was President Elect, our team at the Ultimate Destiny University decided to publish our vision and invite co-creative participation in the implementation strategy already in place for Solving Our Personal, Community, National, Global Success Puzzles.

An Invitation to Help Establish a National Network of Community Economic Development Resource Centers for Self-Help, Empowerment and Capacity Building
What if the experts who say most people only use about 5% of their potential are right?
What if there are resources already used by the top achievers in our world that could help people utilize more of their potential and harness their creative power so they could become part of the solution to the global economic and environmental challenges we face? And what if for the first time in the history of the world, there was a way and an available technology to provide a comprehensive and integrated system for bringing the best of these tested and proven resources to millions of more people, organizations and communities world-wide? How might empowerment and capacity-building be enhanced through an international network and an infrastructure of transformational learning centers staffed by facilitators trained to help individuals, organizations and communities see, believe and achieve all they can be, do and have stewardship over? Would the world be a better place? Would we be better able to identify and resolve the root causes of the many complex challenges and problems we face as a global family? Mark Twain thought so, and so do we . . .

“Inherently, each one of us has the substance within to achieve whatever our goals and dreams define. What is missing from each of us is the training, education, knowledge and insight to utilize what we already have.” -- Mark Twain Earl Nightingale, the “Dean of Motivation” and co-founder of Nightingale-Conant told a story about a father who was trying to work who had a young son who wanted to play. The father cut a picture of the world out of a magazine and made it into a jigsaw puzzle. He gave it to his son and told him that they could play when he had put the puzzle back together. The father who had imagined that it would take his son at least several minutes to complete the task was surprised when his son returned almost instantly back with the puzzle completed. When he asked his son how he had managed to put it together so quickly, his son answered: “It was easy Dad. There was a picture of a man on the other side and when I put the picture of the man together, the world was together too.” 9

During the campaign and after the election, then President Elect Obama inspired millions of Americans to know that the answer to whether we can solve any challenge — or achieve any worthwhile goal is — “Yes, we can!” For several decades, many successful prototypes for helping empower individuals, organizations and communities to develop a CAN DO! attitude have been tested and proven. Many of these award-winning models are showcased at www.candoresourcecenter.com. By providing expanded access to community economic development principles and practices for self-help, empowerment and capacity building, the American people will help solve the national and global economic (and environmental challenges) and America will fulfill its ultimate destiny of helping enlighten the world. Perhaps the best overview of how the proposal will accomplish our vision is the one-page Strategic Implementation Matrix. Introduction to Ultimate Destiny University for Successful Living Ultimate Destiny is fostering the realization of human potential and “Expanding the Circle of Success” through the establishment of an international network of facilities and facilitators that provide resources for personal, organizational, and community empowerment. Our team has been conducting research for more than 40 years on the best programs, products and trainers to discover those that actually deliver results and help participants learn how to develop successful living skills. We have developed dozens of new proprietary programs, products and systems that help people learn how to learn. We have also developed strategic alliances with the producers of best-selling programs and have developed adaptations of their programs designed to be more effective for the populations we serve, especially those who may have had limited experience with development training materials. . We are helping these individuals learn how to put their own “success puzzles” together. And just like the story about the father and his son, as the individual pieces come together for each person, the puzzle for the whole world begins to come into focus. Each of the 14 stand-alone titles in the Ultimate Destiny Success System are filled with fun interactive quizzes, self-discovery exercises, implementation tools and featured resources designed to help readers realize more of their potential, fulfill their life purpose and mission and discover how to create their ultimate destiny (whatever that means to each individual.) The main title is Solving Your Ultimate Destiny Success Puzzle. In addition to product development activities, we have been designing, testing and refining various models for the local delivery of educational programs which has been documented in some of the hundreds of newspaper articles at www.CanDoResourceCenter.com.

This work has included: developing award-winning Community Resource Centers and Centers for Successful Living; and creating an award-winning Success Center Partnership for the Muncie, Indiana Public Housing Authority. That project is an excellent example of the results we expect to generate through the Expanding the Circle of Success Program. Les Brown, one of the top speakers and motivational trainers in the world, helped CENTER SPACE (the Center for Spiritual, Personal And Community Enlightenment) adapt the 100 page workbook from his $100 Choosing Your Own Future product into a 12 page workbook for children as young as 7 years old who lived in public housing. Click Here for a PDF newspaper excerpt on how Les reached the youth and why the project received state and national award recognition. As a result of the award-winning success of the Muncie prototype, Charles Betterton (who designed the program and wrote the $250,000 HUD Drug Prevention grant that funded it) and Benita Smith, Executive Director of the Housing Authority, were invited to share a presentation at the National Association of Housing and redevelopment Officials Conference. Click Here for a PDF of that presentation on How To Create A Success Center Partnership for Your PHA or Community Development Corporation. One of the current projects is creating Empowerment Marionettes of world-class trainers such as Les Brown, Deepak Chopra, and Mark Victor Hansen. Seed grants are presently being sought to produce a TV pilot and sample DVDs to demonstrate how the programs harness the power of edutainment to help youth discover and actualize more of their potential. Click Here for a one page overview). We're also creating You Can CAN DO!, a turn-key system for helping organizations and communities learn how to pool their resources and co-produce large scale development training programs featuring some of the top success coaches in the world such as Brian Tracy, Les Brown, Jim Britt, and Mark Victor Hansen. While these prototypes for locally initiated community resource centers provide the “brick and mortar” component of our marketing and distribution strategy, we also have incorporated “click and learn” technologies for distance learning on the Internet through the Ultimate Destiny University for Successful Living.

ETMS™ Empowerment Training Mentoring System

Empowerment Resource Centers

We envision an international network of thousands of local Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers™ and Empowerment Training Mentoring Systems, staffed with certified Successful Living Coaches™, Empowerment Consultants™ and Empower Mentors™. These centers will provide new and expanded distribution channels for the world’s best resources for personal, spiritual, organizational and community empowerment. As a result, millions of people could be helped to develop a larger vision of themselves. They will learn how to set and achieve goals, increase their performance levels, manifest stewardship over increased financial resources, fulfill their highest possible destinies and live happier more productive lives. There is the potential for thousands of new businesses and millions of new jobs to be created. Families, neighborhoods and communities will be empowered and strengthened. Successive generations will realize more of their potential and America will fulfill its ultimate destiny as an example of a fully actualized society enlightening the world Our ultimate goal is to help millions of people world-wide A.R.K. -- Awaken to their true identity as spiritual beings; Realize more of their potential; and Know how to create their ultimate destiny (whatever that means to each individual). We plan to serve as the catalyst for the establishment of thousands of locally initiated facilities all over the world and the certification of thousands of facilitators. This will be accomplished primarily through strategic alliances with some of the world’s leading resources for success and empowerment, including world-class success coaches and trainers.

Solving the Global Ultimate Success Puzzle
This chapter features resources for addressing global “success puzzles” including the current economic and environmental challenges we face. Some of the organizations profiled include: Arcos Cielos Research Center; International Institute for Global Leadership; World Business Academy; Social Venture Network; IONS, the Institute for Noetic Sciences; Heart Math; Humanity Unites Brilliance; Leadership Institute for Global Healing and Transformation, and Ultimate Destiny University. An example of a featured resource is the book, Transforming the Global Biosphere — Twelve Futuristic Strategies by Elliott Maynard, co-founder of Arcos Cielos Research Center. Transforming the Global Biosphere: Twelve Futuristic Strategies is a ground-breaking book that presents the reader with a fresh, enlightened Overview of the Major Problems which presently face Humans and the Global Environment. Drawing from a wealth of educational and scientific experience, Dr. Elliott Maynard has created a Set of Transformational Tools for thinking and living in harmony with other citizens of our Planet, and for protecting and restoring our precious Global Ecosystems. This exceptional new book contains a constellation of unique Examples, Concepts, and Strategies for guiding the Human Consciousness through a transition into an entirely new Third Millennium Mindset for Success and Survival in the World of the Future.

Dr. Maynard has provided a Power Point presentation on the 12 Futuristic Strategies for Global Transformation from his book, Transforming the Global Biosphere at http://www.slideboom.com/presentations/29549/12-Future-Strategies-for-Transformingthe-Global-Biosphere. Transforming the Global Biosphere is based on the author’s presentations to the World Future Society, and was written at the suggestion of Nobel Peace Prize Nominee and former UN Assistant Secretary General, Dr. Robert Muller. The author feels strongly that, in order to reverse the presently destructive impacts of Human Technology on the Global Biosphere, a Transformative Revolution in Human Consciousness must first take place.

18

Such a “Magnificent Revolution” would take the form of Twelve Futuristic MetaStrategies…each of which would represent a Key SocioEcological Paradigm in itself. Each chapter of the book is developed around a MetaStrategy, providing examples of the Major Problems, as well as Innovative Solutions for reversing these Destructive Trends…through selected applications of Unique Alternative Technologies and Strategies. Dr. Maynard’s Twelve MetaStrategies for Planetary Management are essentially a set of enlightened, yet effective, tools for Creative Thinking and Action. They are designed to promote environmentally sustainable future scenarios for the maximum benefit for Humans, their Planetary Homeworld, and for the Generations Yet to Come. In spite of the mounting evidence of environmental damage and disturbance to our Natural Planetary Systems, Dr. Maynard contends that solutions to these problems are available through insightful applications of Alternative Technologies, which can provide Clean Renewable Energy, Efficient Non-Polluting Transportation, Hi-Energy Nutrition, and Ecologically Appropriate Lifestyles for everyone on Earth. To achieve such a meaningful and lasting transformation, the author feels we must move rapidly and efficiently beyond the entanglements of 20th Century Thinking, and blaze adventurous new pathways into the Future. Together we must find the courage to explore the promising applications of alternative leading-edge Technologies, which often exist outside the boundaries of the Mainstream Scientific Thought.

Introduction to Community Economic Development
by Charles Betterton, MSCED “Community development is the process by which the efforts of the people themselves are united with those of governmental authorities to improve the economic, social and cultural conditions of communities, to integrate these communities into the life of the nation, and to enable them to contribute fully to national progress. This complex of processes is, therefore, made up of two essential elements: the participation by the people themselves in efforts to improve their level of living, with as much reliance as possible on their own initiative; and the provision of technical and other services in ways which encourage initiative, self-help and mutual help and make these more effective." -- United Nations' definition. After living in intentional communities for many years and working in community and economic development, I discovered the field of community economic development (CED). Within months of learning about the CED Masters program at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, NH, I entered the only graduate degree program in the field in 1990 at the age of 42. Through the CED program, I learned that the primary goal of community development is to help people improve their economic and social conditions. Community economic development, a subset of community development, is a people-initiated strategy that seeks to develop the economy of a community, region or country for the benefit of its residents. Community economic development strategies seek to develop efficient, productive and profitable ventures and programs within the context of a community's social, cultural and political values. The strategies include issues such as: * local ownership of economic resources; * citizen participation; and * building the capacity of local people to participate in and manage the development process. This introduction to the significant differences in CED helped me understand why so many traditional approaches to community and economic development fail. It is primarily because they lack the comprehensive focus and the commitment to self-help, empowerment and capacity building inherent in community economic development. During an introductory class in the CED Master's program, my classmates and I developed the following list of the root causes of the problems that threaten our society: * The “Me Generation” * Getting away from God * Lack of spirituality * Lack of common vision * Absence of wisdom 27

* Focus on accumulation versus circulation * Spiritual and cultural disintegration and the * Lack of an appropriate values system and ways to express it. The following month we considered potential solutions to these problems by reflecting on the values of community economic development which we described as including: * Active citizen participation in government and community * Focus on human development and community development * Building collaborative partnerships * Local resource utilization * Application of cooperative principles * Retention of wealth in the neighborhoods * Seeing personal and organizational goals within the context of community and society * Consideration and appreciation of multicultural differences in religion, race, values, perspectives and communication * Enabling people and communities to empower themselves * Recognizing a spiritual underpinning, a sense of oneness The primary goal of community development is to help people improve their economic and social conditions. Community economic development, a subset of community development, is a people-initiated strategy that seeks to develop the economy of a community, region or country for the benefit of its residents. Community economic development strategies seek to develop efficient, productive and profitable ventures and programs within the context of a community’s social, cultural and political values. Community Economic Development (CED) is said to consist of three main principles: Self-Help; Empowerment and Capacity Building. SELF-HELP DEFINED The idea of self-help is one of several distinguishing features of community development theory, practice, and ideology. Self-help is based on the premise that people can, will, and should collaborate to solve community problems. In addition to the practical problem-solving utility of this perspective, self-help builds a stronger sense of community and a foundation for future collaboration. Self-help is emphasized not only as a goal to be achieved in and of itself, but also as a strategy for the accomplishment of broader development objectives. Helping communities achieve a capacity for self-help is fundamental to both the theory and practice of community development. Self-help embodies two interrelated features: (1) it is expected to produce improvements of people's living conditions, facilities, and/or services); and (2) it emphasizes that the process by which these improvements are achieved is essential to development of the community. The "developed community" is both improved and empowered as a result. Thus a self-help approach not only emphasizes what a 28

community achieves, but more importantly, how it achieves it. Another way of stating this is to distinguish between development in the community (the improvements) and development of the community (how these improvements are achieved). -- Excerpts from Community Development Perspectives edited by James A. Christenson and Jerry W. Robinson, Jr. Iowa State University Press/Ames 1989. Click here for the expanded definition of Self-Help in Community Development EMPOWERMENT DEFINED “Empowerment is another concept often discussed but not always practiced. In broad terms, empowerment is enhancing the possibilities for people to influence those persons and organizations that affect their lives. Empowerment involves recognizing and nurturing the unique strengths and competencies of people that derive from the wisdom of their everyday experiences. Empowerment also entails strengthening social networks and community institutions by promoting a diversity for approaches to deal with social life." "An important route to empowerment is building local capacity. When a community and its people are empowered, they have the capacity to articulate their needs; to identify actions to solve these needs; and, to mobilize and organize resources in pursuit of community defined goals. When the people of a community come together to visualize a common future and then work together to achieve it, there develops a recognition that everyone -regardless of education, job, race, background or whatever -- has something important to contribute to that process. Indeed, the greater the diversity of the participants, the richer the vision and the more effective its accomplishments." -- Excerpts from a speech given by Lorraine Garkovich before the Twentieth Annual Conference of the Community Development Society, July 1989. LOCAL CAPACITY BUILDING The rationale for local capacity building bears repeating here: local governments alone simply do not have the human resources to cope effectively with the changing social, political, and economic environments which they now confront. If the base of human resources that local governments can draw upon is not expanded, then communities and people will never achieve the quality of life they want and deserve. The three general types of strategies for local capacity building are: (1) expanding the base of citizen involvement; (2) enhancing the leadership pool; and (3) enlarging the information base of local communities. While each is important, it is together that they establish a solid foundation for citizen participation in community development. These strategies have multiple purposes and outcomes. They contribute to capacity building by nurturing and strengthening local organizations, by generating citizen interest to participate in community decision making and actions, and by increasing the vehicles for citizen involvement." -- Excerpts from Community Development Perspectives edited by James A. Christenson and Jerry W. Robinson, Jr. Iowa State University Press/Ames 1989 29

The cofounders of Ultimate Destinyland have a shared vision that includes reaching, serving and blessing millions of underserved people and helping create and save jobs. Our strategy for accomplishing that is to provide expanded access to some of the world's best development training programs, partly through a network of Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers™ as described at www.ultimatesuccesspuzzle.com. Our programs are based on about 40 years of experience in designing and implementing innovative new ways to help Expand the Circle of Success. We know from personal experience that many if not most leading training companies focus just on the top 10% to 13% of the population.

Charles Betterton, cofounder of Ultimate Destinyland™ with an ETMS™ (Empowerment Training Mentoring System) located within a model Empowerment Resource Center™ in San Diego, CA.

In our work as community organizers and community economic development specialists, the cofounders of Ultimate Destinyland conducted visioning, planning and strategic planning exercises for non-profit organizations and communities. Two of the main questions we usually include and the top three answers to each one revealed through The Three Round Method of Brainstorming are provided below: (1) What are the greatest problems affecting the quality of life in the community? Inadequate citizen involvement in community affairs. Inadequate leadership throughout government. Lack of community unity, cooperation and collaboration.

30

(2) What corrective measures can be taken to address those problems? Develop more community-based programs. Expand church and community involvement. Provide access to resources and successful models that will enhance self-help, empowerment and capacity building for individuals and organizations. In response to those results, several model Community Resource Centers have been established and Ultimate Destiny is launching the Expanding the Circle of Success campaign to help establish a network of locally initiated non-profit Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers www.ultimatesuccesspuzzle.com “After twenty-five years of serving in various management capacities in community and economic development programs at the local, state and national level, I can attest to the significance and relevance of these CED Principles. Many communities are discovering that the principles and practices of community economic development provide a framework and formula for addressing the root causes of major concerns such as crime, drugs, gangs, quality of schools, increasing multicultural diversity and the need for jobs. CED also helps communities manifest more of the positive qualities presented by Arthur Morgan in his booklet on The Great Community.” – Charles Betterton, MSCED

“Mr. Betterton’s project for the 1990-1992 Community Economic Development Masters program at Southern New Hampshire University was to promulgate CED principles and practices. The fact that he turned down a HUD Community Builder Fellowship worth $250,000 in 1998 (when he was earning less than $25,000 a year) to continue the nonprofit community empowerment work he and his team had underway at the time demonstrates his commitment to what he and his classmates defined as the foundation of CED: self-help, empowerment and capacity building.” — Michael Swack, Professor, the Carsey Institute, University of New Hampshire and founding Dean, School of Community Economic Development, Southern New Hampshire University Copyright 2010 Ultimate Destiny Network.

CED Master’s Program Graduation Remarks by Charles Betterton 1992
Good evening. It is my privilege to continue the CED Program tradition of having the opening remarks given by the class member voted least likely to offer remarks, comments and opinions. During our first class weekend, I introduced myself as a community development specialist for the Kingdom of God on earth and right-use-ness. The response to my statement was understandably as diverse as the make-up of our class. Comments ranged from statements of appreciation from people with a similar orientation to someone asking me if there was a place in my world for atheists and Michael Swack asking if I was a member of some cult. During later classes, we spent time discussing the root causes of the problems that threaten our society. We developed the following list: The me generation Getting away from God Lack of spirituality Lack of common vision Absence of wisdom Focus on accumulation versus circulation Spiritual and cultural disintegration and the Lack of an appropriate value system and ways to express it The following month we considered potential solutions to these problems by reflecting on the values of community economic development which we described as including: Spiritual underpinning, a sense of oneness Application of cooperative principles A focus on human development Retention of wealth in the neighborhoods Valuing community and the larger society Consideration of multicultural differences in religion, values perspectives and communication and Enabling people and communities to empower themselves

We defined the role of CED as an educational process to help people become empowered and connected with others, thereby becoming the curative process. I am not the same person who entered this program in September of 1990 and neither are any of you. Through the information, exercises and experiences we have shared, we have all completed another upward spiral in our lives and careers. We have acquired skills and techniques and access to resources that can transform our lives, our organizations, our communities and our world.

Over the past 16 months we have become a family and a community. And just like our biological families and our geographic communities, we have varying levels of connectedness with each other member of the group. Even so, I believe we have far more in common than we may have of difference. When I say I am a community development specialist for the Kingdom of God on earth and right-use-ness, I am sharing my goal of being a positive factor in assisting with the evolution of the world from what and how it now is, into what and how I believe it can be through the application of CED principles. Just as Abraham Maslow developed a hierarchy of needs and described a fully actualized person, I see a vision of a fully actualizing civilization. I see a world where the widespread practice of community economic development principles fosters the realization of personal, organizational and spiritual potential. I see a world where individuals balance their inclination toward personal objectives and material acquisitions with a broader sense of community, purpose, an attitude of service and stewardship and the practice of cooperative principles. In an article we read by Mel King and Samantha George entitled "The Future of Community; From Global to Local", the following statements were presented: "Community development on the material level is necessary, but not sufficient without a complementary development of human consciousness along the spiritual dialectic .... The point here for community developers is to create structures that stimulate the development of consciousness so that, in transforming their physical communities, people grow into spiritual community. Community development must embody the process of uncovering our essence as human beings and as co-creators, in order to build a new earthly order reflecting the divine principle of oneness" I suggest that we are all community development specialists for the Kingdom of God on earth and right-use-ness. Or if you prefer the term, for Heaven on Earth. " We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." I deeply appreciate the opportunity to travel this path with you. I look forward to spending the rest of my life sharing with the world what we have learned through our participation in the CED program. I also appreciate this opportunity to share these thoughts with you this evening. In closing, and in keeping with the ecumenical nature of this "non-invocation", may the Force be with you. Thank you. Charles Betterton

The United State of Americans
Red, White, Black, Brown or Yellow, We are all evolving human beings. Rich, poor, perhaps even entrepreneur, We live and work in one global economy. Christian, Jew, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim or other, We are spiritual beings having a human experience. North, South, East, or West, even in the Territories, We move through space together at thousands of miles per hour. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, or neither, We are Americans first, living together in One nation. Let us stand together united and not let anything or anyone divide us, As we remember our rich legacy and fulfill our ultimate destiny.

A Declaration of Inner-Dependence and Inter-Dependence
Once again we hold these truths to be self-evident as we collectively remember, honor and fulfill the ultimate destiny entrusted to us as citizens of the United States of America, one nation under God, with Life, Liberty, and Happiness for all. Our ultimate destiny as citizens is to actualize our inherent potential, individually and collectively, to help empower, enlighten and evolve ourselves, our brothers and sisters and the global community we share that Bucky Fuller referred to as Spaceship Earth. Our Founding Fathers and Mothers were inspired by Inner guidance to establish the foundation upon which inner Wisdom and interdependence could help foster the pursuit, and the realization of Life, Liberty and Happiness for all. The ultimate destiny of the United States of America is to enlighten, empower and elevate our consciousness to the realization that we are one people, living in one global community, with only one future that we are destined to co-create together. © Charles Betterton, 2011
