Context.

Why our world can win.

In this “game” and real life, our world can have a surviving and thriving future. To “win” that future, keep in mind that our world has a future already beginning. Whether our future appears bad or good, our world can do better. To build a better future, use Thrive strategy and tools that have been used successfully at the personal level and on larger scales (community, country). They can work for the world we all care about. As they have for others, this strategy and these tools can help our world+ win by building, achieving and sustaining a surviving and thriving future.
 
Why our world must win.

Our world must have a surviving and thriving future. Our world must do better whether our future appears bad or good. Why?  Even if we believe that our world has a good future, we are not fully thriving, are not likely to be fully thriving in the future, and are still facing uncertainties about the long term future. We want and need a surviving and thriving future because our world’s future is endangered and because of our human need to survive and desire to thrive. What drives our world and all of us is our human need to survive and desire to thrive now and in a sustainable future. Further, because we (past and present) have broken parts of our world and endangered its future, we (present and future) must help fix what is broken and build a survivable and thriving future for our world+.
 

Why we all must and can win together.

To “win” and build this better future, we (our world’s current and future people and leadership) should be partners in this endeavor from the beginning and through each step. Winning depends on positive leadership from us - our world’s people and leaders. Winning depends on a collaborative approach where the traditional leaders and the people (also serving as leaders) jointly provide leadership, vision, motivation, strategy and successful execution. A collaborative approach has the greater potential to create and sustain large, positive change and a surviving and thriving world+.


Key to winning is the strong desire by all of us (our world’s leaders and people) to move our world+ from its current vulnerabilities through and beyond surviving to a sustained thriving future.
