Campaign to Distribute 100 Million Dollars of Development Training Programs

Expanding the Circle of Success

Establishing A Network
of Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers to Help Empower People and Communities and Help Create and Save Jobs By Providing Resources and Expanded Capacity to Solve Personal, Community and Global Success Puzzles

We have a strategic marketing matrix in place for accomplishing our shared vision of blessing millions of people all over the world, manifesting stewardship over billions of dollars in the process and leaving a treasure chest of programs and resources that will eventually produce a trillion dollar legacy of positive impact on the world. Through our programs such as CAN DO!, the Ultimate Destiny Hall of Fame Awards, and our Ultimate Fundraising Programs that enable participating NPOs to receive donations of up to 110% of any sales they generate of our products, thousands of individuals and organizations will be highly motivated to help us.

Through our Expanding the Circle of Success Campaign we will facilitate the donation over 10 years of 100 million dollars worth of development training programs to and through an international network of non-profit agency partners including our Empowerment Resource Centers™ and ETMS Empowerment Training Mentoring Systems™.

We have already identified over 500,000 potential local co-sponsor agencies that already have facilities, training equipment, targeted constituencies and access to funding for the wealth of resources for self-help, empowerment and capacity building we will provide to them along with the training-of-training for their existing personnel to be enabled to effectively deliver our empowerment training programs and systems.

We plan to generate a quantum leap in the realization of our ultimate vision by issuing a Request for Proposals in through which we (and our strategic alliance partners and resource providers) will donate 10,000 of our ETMS (Empowerment Training Mentoring Systems) worth over 100 million dollars over the next 10 years to local non-profit organizations, initially in the US. 

By incorporating a spiritual foundation in our Company, by developing the programs, products and systems that we have created, by developing strategic alliances with many of the best known authors, trainers and resource providers on the planet, by operating through what we refer to as a Strategic Marketecture TM of cause-oriented companies and our affiliated non-profit organizations, by being able to demonstrate success in producing award winning programs and events with world-class authors and trainers such as Norman Vincent Peale, Les Brown, Brian Tracy, Jim Rohn, Mark Victor Hansen, William E. Bailey, Bonnie St. John, Chin Ning Chu etc. for up to 1,800 participants in a county of only 100,000 residents, and through our award-winning models for Community Empowerment Resource Centers, we will be able to build a billion dollar enterprise just by redirecting 1/2 of 1% of the 210 billion dollar development training industry.

America’s destiny is not power. . . . it is light.” — Benjamin Franklin

Our ultimate vision for America is seeing (and helping) it fulfill its ultimate destiny as envisioned by Ben Franklin and as inscribed on the Statue of Liberty. We understand that is something like “Liberty, enlightening the world”. (See more on The United States of America and The United State of Americans at and our appreciation for Native Americans at There Is Only One Universal Spirit and We Are One People.)

More specifically, we envision the establishment of a national (and then international) network of thousands of local, non-profit Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers. These Centers for Successful Living, based on 40 years of research, development and award-winning prototypes, will provide access to Successful Living Skills for the 21st Century to help individuals, organizations and communities realize more of their potential and enable and empower them to help solve the increasing global social, economic and environmental challenges we face together.

Community Economic Development includes a focus on three areas: Self-help; Empowerment and Capacity Building. In our experiences as community organizers, disaster relief and community economic development specialists, we have found in the community visioning and strategic planning exercises we have facilitated, that the highest answers to the question:

“What are the greatest challenges and obstacles facing our community?” have usually been “the lack of vision and leadership within government” and “the need for greater citizen participation in government.”

When we would then ask “What are the positive corrective measures that could be taken to address those challenges?” , we have almost always gotten answers about the need for having expanded access to resources, models and success stories of how other other organizations and communities have successfully addressed similar problems.

We have also discovered that Einstein was absolutely correct when he said

“We can’t solve problems at the level of thinking (or consciousness)
where we created them.” — Albert Einstein

After several years of testing and refining various approaches to local community development and empowerment resource centers, our team has developed an outline for the proposed establishment of a national network of CAN DO! Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers.

the CAN DO! Project Implementation
Strategy Using the Ultimate Destiny Success Puzzle Template


We are preparing to launch a campaign to Expand the Circle of Success in America by facilitating the donation of 100 million dollars worth of development training resources to and through some of the 500,000 potential local sponsor agencies we have already identified. These CAN DO! Community Empowerment Resource Centers will be staffed by certified Empower Mentors™ and Successful Living Coaches.

As a result of the educational programs that will be provided, participants and their families will learn how to apply Successful Living Skills, including Basic Successful Living Skills, Master Successful Living Skills, and Ultimate Successful Living Skills.

Non-profit organizations will discover innovative approaches to higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. Companies will benefit from higher levels of productivity and profitability. Communities will benefit from a shared vision, higher levels of co-creative participation in government and all areas of living together and America will fulfill its ultimate destiny  of enlightenment as a fully actualizing society.

In response to President Obama’s call for Americans to share ideas as solicited by when he was President Elect, our team at the Ultimate Destiny University decided to publish our vision and invite co-creative participation in the implementation strategy already in place for Solving Our Personal, Community, National, Global Success Puzzles.

In a recent playshop in Sedona, Ultimate Destiny 
asked participants to brainstorm
answers to the following question:

“Given the global economic and environmental crises,
what attitudes and skills can help us  apply more positive,
creative, conscious and sustainable approaches?”


Here are some of the answers we received:

Awakening to our spiritual identity.

Realizing more of our inherent potential.

Harnessing our creative mind power.

Flowing our energy to solutions rather than problems.

Remembering who we really are and why we are here.

Fulfilling our life purposes and missions.

Making a difference and leaving a legacy.

Loving, serving and blessing others.

Maintaining a positive mental attitude.

Applying creative thinking and problem-solving.

Manifesting stewardship over the talents and treasures entrusted to us by God/Spirit/Source/Creator.

In response to these answers, Ultimate Destiny will donate 100% of any sales of the Ultimate Destiny Success System generated through this web site  to help Expand the Circle of Success.

Create Your Ultimate Destiny AND Help Expand the Circle of Success!

Discover how to realize your potential, fulfill your purpose, attain financial success and prosperity, enjoy loving relationships, optimal health, success in business, and manifest your ultimate destiny with the Ultimate Destiny Success System.

Ultimate Destiny will donate 100% of any sales of the 14 E-books to “Help Expand the Circle of Success.”

Ultimate Destiny Network  is also seeking members, affiliates, and accredited investors.

An Invitation to Help Establish a National Network of Community Economic
Development Resource Centers for Self-Help, Empowerment and Capacity Building

What if the experts who say most people only use about 5% of their potential are right?

What if there are resources already used by the top achievers in our world that could help people utilize more of their potential and harness their creative power so they could become part of the solution to the global economic and environmental challenges we face?

And what if for the first time in the history of the world, there was a way and an available technology to provide a comprehensive and integrated system for bringing the best of these tested and proven resources to millions of more people, organizations and communities world-wide?

How might empowerment and capacity-building be enhanced through an international network and an infrastructure of transformational learning centers staffed by facilitators trained to help individuals, organizations and communities see, believe and achieve all they can be, do and have stewardship over?

Would the world be a better place? Would we be better able to identify and resolve the root causes of the many complex challenges and problems we face as a global family?

Mark Twain thought so, and so do we . . .

“Inherently, each one of us has the substance within to achieve whatever our goals and dreams define. What is missing from each of us is the training, education, knowledge and insight to utilize what we already have.”  — Mark Twain

Earl Nightingale, the “Dean of Motivation” and co-founder of Nightingale-Conant 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.”

During the campaign and after the election, then President Elect Obama inspired millions of Americans to know that the answer to whether we can solve any challenge — or achieve any worthwhile goal is — “Yes, we can!” For several decades, many successful prototypes for helping empower individuals, organizations and communities to develop a CAN DO! attitude have been tested and proven. Many of these award-winning models are showcased at

By providing expanded access to community economic development principles and practices for self-help, empowerment and capacity building, the American people will help solve the national and global economic (and environmental challenges) and America will fulfill its ultimate destiny of helping enlighten the world. Perhaps the best overview of how the proposal will accomplish our vision is the one-page Strategic Implementation Matrix.

Introduction to Ultimate Destiny University for Conscious Sustainable Living

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.

Each of the 14 stand-alone titles in the Ultimate Destiny Success System are filled with fun interactive quizzes, self-discovery exercises, implementation tools and featured resources designed to help readers realize more of their potential, fulfill their life purpose and mission and discover how to create their ultimate destiny (whatever that means to each individual.) The main title is Solving Your Ultimate Destiny Success Puzzle.

In addition to product development activities, we have been designing, testing and refining various models for the local delivery of educational programs which has been documented in some of the hundreds of newspaper articles at

This work has included: developing award-winning Community Resource Centers and Centers for Successful Living; and creating an award-winning  Success Center Partnership for the Muncie, Indiana Public Housing Authority.
That project is an excellent example of the results we expect to generate through the Expanding the Circle of Success Program.


Les Brown, one of the top speakers and motivational trainers in the world, helped CENTER SPACE (the Center for Spiritual, Personal And Community Enlightenment) adapt the 100 page workbook from his $100 Choosing Your Own Future product into a 12 page workbook for children as young as 7 years old who lived in public housing. Click Here for a PDF newspaper excerpt on how Les reached the youth and why the project received state and national award recognition.

As a result of the award-winning success of the Muncie prototype, Charles Betterton (who designed the program and wrote the $250,000 HUD Drug Prevention grant that funded it) and Benita Smith, Executive Director of the Housing Authority, were invited to share a presentation at the National Association of Housing and redevelopment Officials Conference. Click Here for a PDF of that presentation on How To Create A Success Center Partnership for Your PHA or Community Development Corporation.

One of the current projects is creating Empowerment Marionettes of world-class trainers such as Les Brown, Deepak Chopra, and Mark Victor Hansen. Seed grants are presently being sought to produce a TV pilot and sample DVDs to demonstrate how the programs harness the power of edutainment to help youth discover and actualize more of their potential. Click Here for a one page overview).

We’re also creating You Can CAN DO!, a turn-key system for helping organizations and communities learn how to pool their resources and co-produce large scale development training programs featuring some of the top success coaches in the world such as Brian Tracy, Les Brown, Jim Britt, and Mark Victor Hansen.

While these prototypes for locally initiated community resource centers provide the “brick and mortar” component of our marketing and distribution strategy, we also have incorporated “click and learn” technologies for distance learning on the Internet through the Ultimate Destiny University for Successful Living.

ETMS™ Empowerment Training Mentoring System Empowerment Resource Centers

We envision an international network of thousands of local Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers™ and Empowerment Training Mentoring Systems, staffed with certified Successful Living Coaches™, Empowerment Consultants™ and Empower Mentors™. These centers will provide new and expanded distribution channels for the world’s best resources for personal, spiritual, organizational and community empowerment.

As a result, millions of people could be helped to develop a larger vision of themselves. They will learn how to set and achieve goals, increase their performance levels, manifest stewardship over increased financial resources, fulfill their highest possible destinies and live happier more productive lives.

There is the potential for thousands of new businesses and millions of new jobs to be created. Families, neighborhoods and communities will be empowered and strengthened. Successive generations will realize more of their potential and America will fulfill its ultimate destiny as an example of a fully actualized society enlightening the world

Our ultimate goal is to help millions of people world-wide A.R.K.Awaken to their true identity as spiritual beings; Realize more of their potential; and Know how to create their ultimate destiny (whatever that means to each individual). We plan to serve as the catalyst for the establishment of thousands of locally initiated facilities all over the world and the certification of thousands of facilitators. This will be accomplished primarily through strategic alliances with some of the world’s leading resources for success and empowerment, including world-class success coaches and trainers.

Invitation to Participate

Ultimate Destiny and our partners in this project seek to help people, organizations and communities realize their full human potential by providing them with expanded access to educational programs and services including personal, professional, organizational, community, and social development and empowerment.

One project is the publication of a book to present this proposal to establish a national network of community resource centers designed to foster self-help, empowerment and capacity building, the three foundational principles of community economic development.

We are preparing to publish a book to introduce this CED project for Solving Our Personal, Community and Global Success Puzzles: Expanding Our Global Capacity to Address Challenges and Opportunities by Helping Individuals, Non-profit Organizations and Communities Foster Self-Help, Empowerment and Transformation.

“Mr. Betterton’s project for the 1990-1992 Community Economic Development Masters program at Southern New Hampshire University was to promulgate CED principles and practices. The fact that he turned down a HUD Community Builder Fellowship worth $250,000 in 1998 (when he was earning less than $25,000 a year) to continue the non-profit community empowerment work he and his team had underway at the time demonstrates his commitment to what he and his classmates defined as the foundation of CED: self-help, empowerment and capacity building.” — Dr. Michael Swack, Professor, the Carsey Institute, University of New Hampshire and founding Dean, School of Community Economic Development, Southern New Hampshire University
