The Thrive! Endeavor, you and all of us together, build a thriving future.

Thrive! Survive! Vulnerable! These are the keys to a call for creating and sustaining large, positive and timely change and building a surviving and thriving future. We are all vulnerable to some extent but that can change for the better. Thrive! is that call to action and a rallying cry for a better future. It is a vision and a mission for those wanting to build a better future. 

To achieve this vision and succeed with this mission, the Thrive! Endeavor, all of us together, strives to energize and empower people to build a thriving future for our families and friends, communities, countries and world.

To have this future, we need to have it for you and everybody’s family and friends and every community and every country and every part of and our entire world. When all this comes together, you and all of us will have built, achieved and sustained this future. We bring all this together with the Endeavor where you and all of us together, build, achieve and sustain this future.

Only all of us together can succeed due to scope (all), level (surviving and thriving), duration (forever) of the challenge. Endeavor is all of us together building, achieving and sustaining that future. “All of us together” include individual people, groups of people, private sector organizations and governments. “All of us together”is current and future generations.  “All of us together” is you, and everybody’s family and friends, and every community, and every country, and every part of and our world. 

Each and all of us should develop and take as many positive actions as we can. The more positive actions taken, the better for all of us.  Each and all of us should help build, achieve and sustain this future for our family and friends.  For our community.  For our country.  For our world, including the Earth on which we depend.  Via these actions and the Endeavor, each and all of us together should build, achieve and sustain this future.

What a thriving future will be. 

This Guide describes what your life and your world will be in a thriving future where all survive and thrive forever, to the maximum extent possible. This future is Thrive! and is a bold vision and mission. 

For you and your family and friends, this future is a better life now and for the near and long term future for all of you and for future generations. 

 For you and your community, this future is a better life now and for the near and long term future for the whole community and for all of the community’s people. 

 For you and your country, this future is a better life now and for the near and long term future for the whole country and for all of the country’s people. 

 For our world, this future is a better life now and for the near and long term future for the whole world (people and Earth) and for all of the world’s people and the Earth itself. 

For you and all that you and we care about, it is a much better life and future with less vulnerability, with surviving and with sustained thriving.

When this future is achieved, you, families and friends, communities, states, countries and the world will be: Performing well, Well-off (financially), Well nourished, Well housed, Well protected (exposures, crime), Well educated, Physically and mentally well (people), Growing/developing well, Living within good habitat, Physically well (Earth, plants, animals, environment), Not vulnerable, Producing personal and public goods, Living within a stable, positive climate, and Sustained.

Thrive!, a thriving future, is different and arguably better than anything tried or achieved in human history. Not just getting by or achieving a surviving future. A surviving future is necessary but not sufficient. It is this future for all people and all future generations, a "50+ generation" strategy. Not just for some people or just for the current and next generation. It is this future forever, a 1000+ year strategy. Not just for today or just 100 years. It is also for Earth on which we live and depend, not just for people.
