Epiphanies: Realizations of Great Truths

The Epiphany I had is the overall premise which a focus of the book for the reader to identify the ideas that he or she thinks of often and routinely discard thinking them not to be valuable and instead of discarding these ideas, myself and additional co-authors highlight the ways in which a person dedicated to dream fulfillment might go about turning that idea, the thought that was the result from an Ah-Ha moment, into a tangible, profitable and legitimate business entity or product as well as outlining how to use that product or business entity for the improvement of themselves, their communities and indeed the world at large.

This venture is a soon to be released group book.  Written and compiled by 10 very different Global Change Agents with the amazing trait of selflessness in common.  Contained within this book is the knowledge that unlock the secrets to monetizing your talents and tapping into your higher sense of self.  This book is written, published and sold for the purpose of supporting The Global Renaissance Movement generally and The Renaissance Ambassador Trek specifically.  When you purchase this book, you are supporting the international education of an American child.  It’s that simple.  The good folks who make up the authors of this book are all True Believers of the very real but often unrealized truth that EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.  our team simply does not believe in limitations.  Why else would we set out to raise 100 Grand to begin an innovative educational program and bring our students on a good will service mission to Malawi?  It’s because we know that EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE and we claim victory over this mission, we claim victory over the fundraising needed to make it on the mission even now as we truthfully are far from our goal. The rest of this team as I myself are walking by Faith and not by Sight.  We say that we can complete this mission and so we shall by the grace of God and with your support, we will be successful.  We will make history. We will transform lives and make this world a better place.

Global Renaissance Movement Remote Internships

We are looking for Business Students, Marketing Students, Photography Students, Graphic Design, Journalism Students and any student that supports the principles, strategic visions and the very idea of The Global Renaissance Movement.  Many Hands Make Light Work.  This is something I learned long ago and changing the world is going to require the cooperation and the coordination of all people in all places that care.  This is your opportunity to become involved on the grassroots level of what is indeed a MOVEMENT, to connect with one another, changing all of our lives through business creation & reciprocity, supporting one another as we live a better example for others to follow.  Those that join us likely have experienced epiphanies or what can be called “Light Bulb Moments”, a new state of enlightenment speaking to us all indicating that we must no longer remain captivated by our electronic devices and their accompanying gadgets; that we ACT for the preservation of the planet and our own human species.  The aim is peacemaking as it is preservation/conservation as it is the improvement of individual lives as they are lifted out of poverty and illiteracy and manufactured social division with our help through business using the philosophy of Entrepreneurial Altruism as a guide.

The Global Renaissance Movement is Economic as it is Social as it is Political.  All of these elements intertwine and work with or against one another in some way throughout of our lives in the world.  Global Renaissance PAC is a NON PARTISON & INDEPENDENT political action committee destined to have a positive impact on the 2016 presidential election as well as local elections throughout the nation.  Our primary emphasis will be in regards to the following:

  • Political Operation Trainings
  • Get Out The Vote efforts
  • Down Ballot Elections
  • Judicial Elections (Who are these judges that are on the ballot that nobody knows anyway?)
  • Ballot Initiatives (Ways to bypass our Do-Nothing Congress and state houses to accomplish R.OG.R.E.S.S. on our own)
  • We aim to hire and put out onto the Political Battlefield 10,000 newly trained Political Operatives working towards an inclusive agenda that will benefit ALL people inside The United States of America directly and others throughout the world indirectly. The Global Renaissance Movement is Global in Scope and Local in Practice.

Our Remote Interns will be working to assist Global Renaissance PAC with its outreach efforts and necessary work along with Global Renaissance, LLC.  It is important to complete the Global Renaissance Inquiry Paper so that we may best gauge where your personal philosophy aligns with The Global Renaissance Movement itself.  As it stands today our Congress has about a 90% Disapproval rating yet they have about a 95% reelection rate….now how can that be unless the system is rigged…which it is…we all know it, yet for some reason, the activists, the nation at large is in a state of paralysis….can’t act….no matter how offended or pissed off or damaged or lied to we are……can’t, wont, will not ACT….NO LONGER!

  • Completing distributing Press Releases
  • Online content creation
  • Each person will contribute according to their own strengths and weaknesses. We want all people everywhere to thrive and we have no interest in placing any person in a supporting role of an area that they have no passion towards.
  • Other job duties will be added as the movement continues, grows and expands.

Benefits of participation:

  • Valuable experience in the field that you love
  • Earn 10% of speaker fees that you secure are unlimited in possible income!
  • 10% of every sale of 50 Books or more is $$$ in your pocket.

  • If The Global Renaissance Bureau of Speakers were to Earn a paid speaking engagement at the college that you personally attend and you have a hand in making that happen, you earn 25% of the net profit.
  • The positions are all commission based. If revenue is earned on behalf of The Global Renaissance Movement then income will be earned by that Remote Intern.
  • Opportunities for personal and professional elevation are available.

In time this movement will provide grassroots funding for worthwhile projects.  I, J Glenn, have formed and launched this movement as a means to remedy the many problems that permeate within our culture and is taking far too many lives needlessly.  I believe firmly that as I feel this way there are also others who feel the same.  I intend to connect with them.  Perhaps you reading this now.  I just believe that there a lot of such people out there. I think that for whatever reason, even in the age of social media, we are disconnected yet we do not have to remain so. I also believe that in spite of so many would be differences, we really have more things in common.  We all breathe the same air.  We all cherish our children’s future.  And we are all mortal.  Those that support this creative movement must have a commitment to truth telling and a genuine love for humanity.  This is a Pro-Human, Peace Making through Business & Service Movement.  We want people that are Motivated for Mobilization, the stage at which people begin to take action.  We want those who are ready for MASSIVE POSITIVE ACTION.  If you have an interest in moving toward the future with a new dedication to become better human beings, I encourage you to reach out.

My Philosophy of Education

I believe that each child is a unique individual with the ability and potential to bring something special to the world.  I enjoy presenting curriculum that involves the interests of the children and makes learning relevant to life and helps them to become their best selves. I have a vision of a world where people learn to respect, accept, and embrace the differences between us and work together to solve common problems and to be the difference that elevates the plight of human existence.

For me, teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. When working with students the environment is always a caring, safe, and equitable place in which each child may become enriched and grow. I will allow children to become responsible members of our classroom community. My message is that anything worth having requires much work and if you believe in something, if you want something that gives your life special meaning that you’ve never had before then you’ve got to be willing to do some things that you’ve never done before. New goals are accompanied by new obstacles and require new dedication to ensure our visions are brought to fruition. Being great is not a matter of social status, background, or income bracket. It’s a destiny decision. It’s deciding that beyond all odds, there is still something great in you & about you. It’s about deciding that your destiny is too valuable to waste. Everything you want in life has a cost that is non-refundable. I prepare the youth to pay the price!

Here, there is a special emphasis to educate and expand opportunities of young people in the STEM categories, STEM being, Science – Technology – Engineering – Mathematics. Our inner city and Urban comunity children will quite often respond to the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” With the answer of “Basketball Player” or “rapper” or “Football Player”. All great professions in their own right yet these kids need to know that making it into these industries are similar in odds as being struck by lightening. The facts are that everyone whom aspires to become a musical artist is not going to become like or as large as Jay Z. Not everyone who can run fast or has quick hands are going to play in the NFL. They need to know that there are real career options available for them in the development of the very technologies that we are all connected to daily.  At the Global Renaissance Change Agent Academy we put special emphasis on technological career training. We want our young participants to begin to know intimately the iOS and Android systems that are dominating the market at this very moment.

The Global Renaissance Change Agent Academy  is a program for underprivileged youth that teaches and instills the skills and values of leadership, entrepreneurship and scholarship.  This is a self and wealth development training offering personal and professional dream fulfillment strategies.  Being here will increase one’s ability for critical thinking and foster a new focus on Global engagement through Entrepreneurial Altruism.  We present opportunities to develop professional competencies in careers that meet the needs of a modern global community while simultaneously fulfills their innermost desires for happiness and personal fulfillment.

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.

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 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.

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.
