“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” – Oscar Wilde

How many people do you know that go to work, come home eat, watch TV. and go to bed and repeat this day after day. Is that life or just existence? No involvement outside of work; they don’t read a book to expand their thinking; they might go to dinner and a movie, but if you listened to the conversation it is about work, or a TV. show – not about improving something in the world. It isgenerally complaining about their life or work or something. They don’t know where the homeless shelter in town is or even if there is one. If they know where the food bank is, it is because they use it.

I have been guilty of some of the above. I think that we all have. But at some time we woke up to the fact that we can “live” life to its fullest. That there can be more than just existing. And once you wake up you can’t go back to sleep. You might find yourself dozing off once in awhile, but you can’t go back to sleep.

So what do you do when your awake? You find something that speaks to your soul. something that you can do now, to make this a better world. I found (or it found me!) Community Takeover. It is always in my mind now. I see every ad in a magazine or on TV and I think, could I use this concept in the program? Everywhere I turn another idea is popping into my head and I am thinking about how I could incorporate this into the programs message.

I know that this program will be life changing, because it has already changed mine. I know that it will not only change individuals, but families. And not only families, but communities, and from there it will spread out all over the world. Just like how each of us woke up, once the individual realizes that they can join with others in their communities and make a difference, they won’t be able to go back to sleep.

Community Takeover is going to wake up individuals to the difference they can make, and we will wake up the world!
