Context.

Why you and your community can win.

In this “game” and real life, you and your community can win and have a surviving and thriving future. To “win” that future, keep in mind that your community is different with a different future already beginning. Whether that future appears bad or good, your community can do better. To build a better future, use Thrive strategy, tactics and actions that have been used successfully at the personal level and on larger scales (community, country). They can work for you and the community you care about. As they have for others, this strategy can help you and your community win by building, achieving and sustaining a surviving and thriving future.
 
Why you and your community must win. You and your community must win and have a surviving and thriving future. Your community must do better whether that future appears bad or good. Why? Even if your community has a good future, your community is not fully thriving, not likely to be fully thriving in the future, and still faces uncertainties about the long term future. You and your community want and need a surviving and thriving future because your community’s future is endangered and because of our human need to survive and desire to thrive. What drives your community and its people is our human need to survive and desire to thrive now and in a sustainable future. Further, because your community’s people (past and present) have broken some part of your community and endangered its future, you and your community’s people (present and future) must help fix what is broken and build a survivable and thriving future for your community.
 

Why you and your community must and can win together. To “win” and build this better future, your community’s people and leaders should be a team in this endeavor from the beginning and through each step. Winning depends on teamwork by and positive and effective leadership from your community’s leaders and people. Winning depends on a collaborative, team approach where the traditional leaders and the people (also serving as leaders) jointly provide leadership, vision, motivation, strategy and successful execution. A strong team has the greater potential to “win” and create and sustain large, positive change and a surviving and thriving community.


Key to winning the “game” is the strong desire by you and your community to move your community from its current vulnerabilities through and beyond surviving to a sustained thriving future.
