The following is an excerpt from Kyle McIntosh’s closing remarks at Conscious Capitalism Arizona’s inaugural membership event, Conscious Capitalism – The Ultimate Competitive Advantage
Conscious Capitalism is the answer to the world’s ills. Capitalism has raised more people out of poverty in the last 200 years than any other socio economic system. Yet, we still hear stories all of the time about people in Africa, around the world and even in our own great country and state, going hungry each day.
WHAT IF? We could end poverty for all and forever?
Every day that we live on earth is more peaceful than the last. Each year, the death rate on earth due to violence has dropped from the last. And yet, we are bombarded with stories of strife and violence and the hate of man.
WHAT IF? We could bring world peace through Conscious Capitalism and love and embrace the value of fellow men of all walks of earth through truly free trade and limitless opportunity for all?
What if we could raise the bar for the entire world, decreasing the number of humans living under $1 a day and then raising that to $5 a day and so on?
What if everyone on earth could utilize technologies that we take for granted as a means to become interconnected and use those same technologies to become literate?
What if education became an easily accessible way of life for those on earth still worrying about where they will find their next meal or where they will lay their head that night?
What if?!? What if?!? What if?!?
What if you could grow your businesses to 10 times its current size while helping those you do business with to do the same, building their own businesses simultaneously?
What if every time you increased your business by another multiple your customers, clients, vendors, communities begged you for the opportunity to continue to help it grow even more?
What if every time your business made another dollar it directly translated into a better scenario and a better life for every person on earth who you come into contact with?
You tell us your why, why are you here? Why are you here in this room and on this earth and this group will surround you with people successfully applying the “how” to their businesses and their lives right now. Together we will work to answer all of the what ifs.
Every business has a chance to go from pretty good to pretty great. Today is that day for you and your business. Today is your chance to shine in this world. What we’re talking about here is a chance for you to grow your business exponentially, but not just that. What we’re talking about here is a chance for you to take part in changing the world for the better, but not just that.
For, each of these will drive one another. That’s what Conscious Capitalism is. This is your chance to have it all and to give that opportunity back to every person on earth.
I don’t care what your business is, I don’t care what your business does other than the fact that you are willing to shine in this world, that you are willing to help push this rock up the hill.
If you are still not quite sure how you’ll achieve everything that you dream but are intrigued, join us on this journey and we’ll do it together. We are offering you the keys to unlock your full potential.
I encourage you to not watch the news ever again and wonder what if.
I encourage you not to sit passively on the sidelines of life and not know how much more energy you could have poured into making this special and unique time that we happen to have together with one another on earth a better time for yourself and for each of us collectively as an interconnected community of 7 billion.
I humbly request that you take action in this world. If you aren’t ready to join our group than that is fine and we will link arms and walk together, collaborating our efforts.
But, if you, with a servants heart and the back of Atlas, with the world on your shoulders would like to unify as one Force for Good and not JUST talk about the worlds ills BUT ALSO create change, we would love to have you.
