My Tribute To Buckminster Fuller’s Passing: July 1st

July 1st is the Anniversary of Buckminster Fuller’s passing. If you don’t know about this wondrous human being, many links and articles about him at:  www.MoneyandYou.com/Buckminster-Fuller 

He passed on in 1983. One of the reasons we celebrate today is because when he passed on, we were looking at each other and thinking… 

“Oh my God, now who is going to be going out there and sharing about how to make the world work for 100% of humanity?”

“Who is going to go out there and tell the world that there is sufficiency on the planet?” 

We would soon realize that since Buckminster Fuller was no longer with us, it was our responsibility to carry (and live) his message forward.

One of the reasons why he was so, so impactful in my life, is that when I was 27 years old, I heard him speak about how the world was still stuck in the Malthusian Theory of Economics, which is a theory about how to manage scarce resources. When in reality it had already been proven in the ‘60’s and early ‘70’s that there were more than enough resources to feed everyone on the planet — and in actually, every person was technologically a “billionaire”… 

There were enough resources, but the world was still functioning from a place of scarcity – that many people were also functioning from a place of scarcity. 

Thus began my process of me being able to move from scarcity to sufficiency, which eventually leads to abundance. A whole conversation began to occur in my life about “True Wealth”, which is very different from the way that most people define wealth. It is one thing to be rich. It is entirely different to be truly wealthy. We want to be wealthy, not only financially, but also living a life from a “place of abundance and wealth”… 

I believe that being truly wealthy is having access to money, access to experts, access to networks, access to investments, access to support when you need it, access to education, access to clean water… access to that which you need…

Access…that is True Wealth!

That’s why today is so important to many of us… we’re celebrating a very well-lived life by our mentor — our teacher’s beautiful legacy, and through his teachings, he left us with the question; 

“How do we make the world work for 100% of humanity through spontaneous cooperation in the shortest possible time, without any ecological offense or disadvantage of anyone?” 

At the Excellerated Business School® for Entrepreneurs, in our Money & You and other Excellerated programs, our mission, our platform are designed to encourage and train Entrepreneurs to have products, services and programs which answer that question. When we do that, then we can truly move towards a world that works for 100% of humanity. 

Thank you for all you do to make this world better!

Buckminster Fuller – Build a New Model That Makes the Existing Model Obsolete

Bucky Fuller

Bucky Fuller was concerned with the question “Does humanity have a chance to survive lastingly and successfully on planet Earth, and if so, how?

Considering himself an average individual without special monetary means or academic degree, he chose to devote his life to this question, trying to identify what he, as an individual, could do to improve humanity’s condition, which large organizations, governments, and private enterprises inherently could not do.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.

 

During the last two weeks of January 1975 Buckminster Fuller gave an extraordinary series of lectures concerning his entire life’s work entitled Everything I Know.
