Vision and Mission of Creating A Network of Development Opportunities!
Click Here for a brief overview of this project provided in a S.O.P.A.D.A. format.
The cofounders of
Stewardheirship, Inc. and the
National Community Economic
Development Resource Center, Inc. have a shared vision that our
mission 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
If you would like to review the larger vision of how we plan to help establish hundreds of locally initiated Community Empowerment Resource Centers, please visit www.ultimatesuccesspuzzle.com and review a recent PRWeb news release at http://www.prweb.com/releases/paywhatitsworthtoyou/ultimatedestinyland/prweb4071174.htm
In our work as community organizers and community economic
development specialists, the cofounders
In response to those results, several successful Community
Resource Centers have been established and
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.”
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. That is why we now ask you this question:

We plan to produce introductory materials on the Resource Center including brochures, print and electronic newsletters, etc. along with continuing refinements to this web site, a related blog site, and completion of a Success Puzzle Template for the Resource Center like the example provided for Sedona Collaborative Enterprises.

Following are links to
PDF documents that introduce some of the resources and prior
programs produced by CENTER SPACE and CAN DO! that would be
available for replication in local Resource Centers. They include
Empowerment Resource Showcases, the
Introduction to Personal Success Techniques Seminars,
These programs are designed to be coproduced and sponsored by non-profit organizations, companies, chambers of commerce and local government as ways to introduce and demonstrate the available programs and generate funding for the local Resource Centers.
We are planning to issue
a Request For Proposals in 2012
inviting participation by any county, city or community in Arizona
that would like to let us help them establish a local non-profit
CAN DO! CED Empowerment Resource Center to help design and
Economic Development programs and resources for their residents.

Evolution of the Community Development Resource Centers Project
The present evolution of this Vision and
Strategic Implementation Matrix for establishing a national network
of CAN DO! Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource
Centers was initially articulated in a response to then President
Elect Obama's invitation through
www.change.org for citizens to suggest possible enhancements to
the Federal Government.
As I reviewed HUD's Five Year Strategic Plan, I was inspired and deeply appreciative of the comprehensive vision and mission developed under Secretary Shaun Donovan. The Plan and the five major goals it establishes are far more in alignment with the principles and practices of Community Economic Development that include Self-Help, Empowerment and Capacity Building than the five Administrations I had previously served under.

In recent months,
HUD has initiated several other innovative new programs that we
believe would benefit from the inclusion of the programs, products
and systems available to and through the network of CAN DO!
Community Economic Development Resource Centers. Some of these
highly relevant HUD programs include:
Sustainable Housing and Communities;
Choice Neighborhoods; and Strong Cities, Strong
