Loraine's visionary statement and the inspiring words from the song Earth by David Roth encompass our ultimate vision and mission of fostering personal, community, national and global transformation. We seek to accomplish that by providing expanded access to state-of-the-art resources for development training while incorporating the Community Economic Development principles of Self-Help, Empowerment and Capacity Building.
Our Ultimate Vision is a world of more fully actualized individuals living in a higher and more enlightened consciousness of Universal StewardHeirShip™ as our shared destiny. That encompasses Bucky Fuller’s vision of “betterment for 100% of humankind”, Arthur Morgan's works including The Great Community, and an adaptation of Abraham Maslow's description of "fully actualized individuals" to fostering the cocreation of "fully actualizing communities". Our vision also incorporates the principles and practices of Community Economic Development that include Self-Help, Empowerment and Capacity Building and resources from intentional communities.
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. This project is just one major component of the larger Strategic Marketing Matrix™ for manifestation of the vision and mission of Ultimate Destinyland to bless and serve millions of people worldwide, manifest stewardship over billions of dollars and leave a trillion dollar legacy.

In recent months,
HUD has initiated several
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 relevant HUD programs include:
Sustainable Housing and
Neighborhoods; and Strong Cities, Strong Communities.
Strategic Implementation Matrix™ for Establishing A
Network of Community
The Centers would 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 social, economic and environmental challenges. The one-page Strategic Implementation Matrix includes: 500,000 potential local sponsors; potential funding sources; 16 major topics for training and technical assistance that would be provided and 8 core proposed initiatives that would facilitate the expanded acquisition and application of successful living skills that would lead to creation of new businesses and jobs.
These 8 core strategies foster “mega-successful living skills for the 21st Century” including:

The cofounders of
Ultimate Destinyland 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

Earl Nightingale, the “Dean of Motivation” and co-founder of Nightingale-Conant (the World Leader in Personal Development since 1960) 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:

More Resources from Community Service http://www.smallcommunity.org/service.asp
Community Service is dedicated to the development, growth and enhancement of small local communities. We envision a country where the population is distributed in small communities that are sustainable, diverse and culturally sophisticated. Community Service was founded in 1940 as an educational institution focused on the ideas and practices of small community and the appraisal, development and circulation of these ideas and practices.
The “technology” of Small Local Communities is centuries old. Arthur Morgan spent many decades in the process of systematizing and refining the theory of small communities. In his role of engineer, educator, and government official he put this theory into practice in different environments. The Community Course introduces concepts, rules and tips in the formation or enhancement of a Small Local Community. The course is available for high school and college instructors for use in teaching the concepts of small community. The course allows instructors to address not only the economics, education and other aspects of community, but also the psychological and relationship aspects of the small community.

It includes brief introductions to some of the Ultimate Destiny Hall of Fame Award recipients who are ready to help provide expanded access to their world-class development training materials.
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. Some of these PDF documents take a few seconds to download because they present how these events are designed to generate maximum participation by participants, local businesses, non-profit organizations, governmental agencies and sponsors.
The examples include
Empowerment Resource Showcases, the
Introduction to Personal Success Techniques Seminars,
Community Unity Celebration featuring Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and
Les Brown, and personal and professional development training
programs featuring some of the top trainers in the world who have
Ultimate Destiny Hall of Fame Award such as
Victor Hansen and
Bonnie St. John.
The Partnership was
designed and developed by Charles Betterton and the non-profit
CENTER SPACE for the
Muncie, Indiana Public Housing Authority (MHA) though a HUD Drug
Elimination Grant. The Success Center
Partnership received recognition by HUD and the National Association
of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO). The Executive
Director of the MHA and Betterton presented How To Establish a
Success Center Partnership for Your PHA at the 1999 National
NAHRO Conference. The link for a draft forthcoming publication based
on that presentation is
Another example of the model programs and resources that will be provided to and through local Resource Centers is the Community Economic Development Resource Center in Kankakee, Illinois. This highly successful prototype was established primarily by the Kankakee County Community Development Corporation with support of the Kankakee Development Corporation in an abandoned 22,000 square-foot National Guard Armory Building that had been slated for demolition for parking.
The Community Resource Center has served tens of thousands of residents with cultural, recreational and educational programs including a Micro-Enterprise Development training program that was funded with HUD Community Development Block Grant funds. The project received a Governor's Home Town Award and it has received a couple of million dollars in grants and donations from individual supporters and private and public sources. The Microenterprise Development training program is being refined to include "Infopreneurship".
These model 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 significant benefits of the available programs and generate funding for the local Community Resource Centers.
Our Expanding the Circle of Success Campaign seeks to establish a national, and then international network of locally initiated, non-profit Community Economic Development Resource Centers (www.ultimatesuccesspuzzle.com).
Our Invitation to Sponsor a Local Community Resource Center. We invite any community, Indian or Public Housing Authority, Community Development Corporation or similar organization in America to let us help you establish a local non-profit CAN DO! CED Empowerment Resource Center to help design and deliver Community Economic Development programs and resources for your residents. We will help facilitate the donation of millions of dollars worth of development training resources to and through the Resource Centers including the ETMS ™ Empowerment Training Mentoring Systems and the Ultimate Destiny Success System programs developed by Ultimate Destiny University.
The ultimate goal of Ultimate Destiny is to help
Expand the Circle of Success for
Solving Our Personal,
Community and Global Success Puzzles by helping establish a
network of non-profit
