The Global Renaissance Movement

 

“And the Lord answered me, and said, write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.  For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie. Though it tarry, wait for it, because it will surely come.”

At The Global Renaissance Change Agent Academy we train our students to monetize their time, talent and resources to gain full control over their lives by enabling them to create their careers and businesses offering their families and communities opportunities for wealth building and become the blessings that others pray for.  This is what each student becomes because what starts here changes the world. If you think it’s hard to change the lives of people – change their lives forever- you’re wrong.  With what we do and the missions undertaken, we demonstrate and teach our young people that the decisions that the make can and will transform and save not just their own lives, but that of their own future children whom will be saved due to their now intelligent actions as well as their children’s children and their families here in the now. Generations will be saved by one decision, made by one person.

But changing the world can happen anywhere and anyone can do it. Our struggles in the world and the lessons to overcome those struggles are similar and to move forward – changing ourselves and the world around us will apply equally to us all.  We outline, demonstrate and teach our students how to lead in an environment of constant stress, chaos, failure fraught with hardships. Yet we can’t change the world alone. We all will need some help.  To truly get from our starting point to our destination will take friends, colleagues, and the good will of strangers and the blessings of God. In this work, nothing matters but our will to succeed.  Not your color, not your ethnic background, not your education and not your social status. There will inevitably be setbacks and failures, times when things we try to accomplish do not work out the way that we plan. There will always be moments when no matter how much work we put in, no matter how hard we try, no matter how well we prepare or perform, we still end up short of where we are aiming for.  There are always moments when we just miss the mark. This is just the way life is sometimes.  These moments in life are designed to wear us down, to break our spirit and to force us to quit. But if you dare press on and continue on in spite of the challenges and setbacks you will find that all of those setbacks truly have prepared for you a stronger come back because all of that resistance has made you stronger.  You’ve gotten a little tougher.  The pain of the setbacks and short comings builds inner strength and brings our physical resiliency.

Life is filled with setbacks and shortcomings.  You will fail. You will likely fail often. It will be painful. It will be discouraging. At times it will test you to your very core and cause you to question the rationale behind the painfully passionate pursuit of that which you seek.  Yet if we want to change the world, we mustn’t be afraid of the challenges.  If I have learned anything in my time and along my journey in this world, it is the power of hope.  The power of one person – King, Washington, Mandela, Lincoln and even a young girl from Pakistan – Malala – one person truly can change the world by giving people hope!

But if you dare press on and continue on in spite of the challenges and setbacks you will find that all of those setbacks truly have prepared for you a stronger come back because all of that resistance has made you stronger. You’ve gotten a little tougher. The pain of the setbacks and short comings builds inner strength and brings our physical resiliency.

In life there are plenty of opportunities to give in.  To quit.  To say to yourself and the world that you’ve had enough.  Enough of the late nights and early mornings.  Enough of the rejections and constant revising of your strategies, efforts and actions.  All you have to do is quit.  Quit and you no longer have to endure the hard difficulty of dealing with failure while struggling to believe when everything appears to be so unbelievable.  Quit, and you no longer have to endure the hardships that accompany the work of dream fulfillment.  Yet if you want to change the world, don’t you ever, ever quit!

We are only mere moments away from the start of the brand new 2018 New Year.  Moments away from beginning our journey through life.  Moments away from starting to change the world for the better.

It will not be easy.

But we are dedicated, motivated and educated.

It is my hope that I have found someone to help me through this effort.

The Global Renaissance Change Agent Academy offers empowerment messaging coupled with specifically outlined action steps transforming the lives of our students. This is not merely motivational fluff.  There really are ways that our young people can go from sagging their pants to tying ties and wearing suits. We’ll help them to connect the dots so that they are equipped and become well able to travel firmly and swiftly along the path to self – development, armed with pragmatic working knowledge of how self-development leads to wealth development.  And that the acquisition of wealth is not merely to buy things as part of the ever growing mentality of blind consumerism but that our lives, wealth and health and re-sources are truly designed for us to become the blessings that some-one out there is praying for.  For someone, the light at the end of the tunnel is YOU!

Our students are taught to respect everyone. They are taught to respect the process of dream fulfillment as they undertake the work that is global in scope and local in practice.

They will come to know that life is not fair and that they will fail often, yet if they take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies lift up the downtrodden, and never, ever give up; that if they do these things, then the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today and what we started here will indeed have changed the world, for the better.

Children learning about them-selves within the framework of the larger world, mastering technology, starting businesses and connecting with their peers on the other side of the globe is what this is about and we will be successful with your support. This support for each other is critical and we as individual actors need and must come together if we are to succeed.

We must remember that brick walls are not there to stop us. The brick walls are there for us to prove to ourselves how much that we want it.

— Make a direct Contribution to The Renaissance Ambassador Trek and the strategic visions of The Global Renaissance Movement 

at: http://igg.me/at/changeagent Many hands make light work and in order for me to bring to life the strategic visions and dreams that have found their way into my heart I’m going to need the help of a lot of people.  This is a movement to change the world and this movement needs funds to make that happen.  I’m asking all those who see this vision as I see it, who support global engagement initiatives such as this, who see as I see the life transformation that will occur for the young students participating to bless me with a contribution of ONE DOLLAR.  More always helps and is always welcome but ONE DOLLAR really is just spare change and what I know about grass roots efforts is that SPARE CHANGE WILL MAKE CHANGE.  I’m using all means available to get the money to I need so that I might breathe life into my destiny and offer the world to a handful of young people who would otherwise may never come to know it.  I’m using crowd funding with the belief that the crowd of people I need offering ONE DOLLAR contributions will show up.  This is my call into the universe for the assistance I need so that I may cross the finish line on this endeavor and move beyond.

— Invite me to your area for a an empowering speaking engagement!

At this moment in time this is my biggest dream that I WILL see become a great reality.  This reality is the beginning of The Global Renaissance Movement.   I invite you to join this movement and help us to remake the world.  With your help we will show the world that one need not be a billionaire philanthropist to build a school in a foreign nation or to impact the the planet in ways that may echo throughout time long after we’re gone.

Working with young people is among my greatest passions. Helping kids realize their own entrepreneurial talents is what I do. The Omaha Ambassador Trek will give American students the chance to build strong friendships with different people and witness first hand the power of possibility as they themselves participate in the fulfillment of a mans greatest dream that came to fruition through dedication and perseverance.

I love teaching kids. The Global Renaissance Movement is about teaching others to invest their talents, time and abilities into efforts to improve life as we know it through the advancement of PEACE and the elimination of Poverty.

I really do believe that God will put the people in my life whom I need to help me usher this vision into reality. I will show these young students that the world is far larger than their own neighborhoods that they've never left. I'm going to continue to tell my story and to share my vision and explain this mission until the day that is certain to come when I write my first Blog posting from Malawi which I will title "Dreams Do Come True"....I'm asking all those who read this to contribute ONE DOLLAR for this Dream.

Philippians 4:13....While in 8th grade my mom posted this Bible Scripture by the front door so I'd see it going to school each morning. I'll never forget it

The Crossover: Making Your Biggest Dreams Your Greatest Reality

The Global Renaissance Movement is the combined energies and actions of all those who look out upon the global landscape and recognize that we as a people, as a human species, can do better, that we can be more than we are and have more than we’ve got, but only through massive positive action.  Taking massive positive action is necessary for the creation of the better planet all of us want and badly need.  Recently one of my students, Carter, commented in class, “You know what Mr. J, the world really is a messed up place”.  I agreed with him that the world is indeed a messed up place, but it doesn’t have to be.  Each day that we are blessed with oxygen in our lungs and the life of a new day, that is a chance to get it right, to have more and contribute more than the day before.

This is a movement to remake the world.  It is a global movement to promote, fight for and bring about world peace, freedom and friendship among all the worlds citizens.  We all have our own unique role to play throughout the never ending human story.  Everyone has their own passions and creative abilities.  Teaching kids about the positive path of business is MY role.  Inspiring my own peer group to commit acts of public service is MY role.  Telling the world my truth, that EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE, is MY role.  What’s yours?

A portion of each copy of this book sold directly contributes to the construction materials used to build the primary school in Malawi as part of The Renaissance Ambassador Trek.  At this moment in time this is my biggest dream that I WILL see become a great reality.  This reality is the beginning of The Global Renaissance Movement! I invite you to join this movement and help us to remake the world.
