Success and Perseverance

Every success has its secrets. We better achieve our goals by learning from others. Jamaicans can sit at the feet of this teacher. The world is doing so.  They have done it for Garvey,  Marley, George Headley and others. But we have forgotten them quickly! Let it not be so.

See this article for lessons from one of Jamaica’s finest: Success depends on your hard work – Usian Bolt

Economic Empowerment requires being enterprising and innovative. Inventions have led industry growth. The only way to climb the economic ladder from oppression is to be enterprising, innovative and invent!

Trials, Tribulations and Triumphs

Give oppressed people space to free themselves. The evil plot has been the deprivation of human capital development and then to avoid that the oppressed don’t deserve the costs of liberation.
Reparation is seen as freeloading.  See what these girls are doing with the break they are getting to empower themselves.

Using Innovation to Protect the Environment

This is how industry and the “average citizen” can work together for Empowerment of All. We provide collected bottles. The zoo reduces entrance costs. This means less flooding and wastage of disaster money in Jamaica.

A model for every country!  See article here: “Hope Zoo wants to slash admission fees”

It takes a village to empower a person

When each of us helps someone to discover their potential and worth, we empower them. When we mentor, guide and open doors for learning and advancement opportunities, we empower.

Who are we helping to empower? Be there.

The Milgram Experiment

The research of Milgram and related articles on social behaviour in the link below are instructive. Are we living in an autonomous or agentic state? Are we in the blind service of systems around us or do we advocate that systems work for the well-being  of ourselves and others?
Each of us is here to make a positive difference and to protect humanity. If most of us insist that those to whom we delegate leadership are our servants rather than masters, then empowerment of all persons is better assured. There  can be no “1984”, or  Holocaust or Rwanda of the past.
There should be no Trumpism, or Lower and Middle income country, “big man” corruption and fascism in places such as in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia etc.
What is happening in your country? What is our current stance? How will we change?

The Best way to maintain Oppression is to “oppress” ourselves

This is a good article reflecting how oppressed people perpetuate their own dis-empowerment by not owning the process of our liberation. Freedom lies in “people action” at the community level and then communities joining together. It is only when governments are held on a tight leash of accountability to aware and activist people movements, that societies progress.

See article: The deepening culture of resignation

Giving is Good

It is surprising how what we often take for granted are the best things for our wellness. Being connected, giving, gratitude and enjoying nature are included.

Let us live simply good to live well. Giving is Good.
