Power of 5

What if Dec 21st, 2012 was the day that the Alternate Economy is finally able to form a bank?

Could we actually get to that point in less than 11 months?

Let us look at the power of 5.

There are currently a little over 600 followers to this blog.  Imagine if each and every one of you took it upon yourselves to tell all of your friends about this idea.  Imagine if all of you felt compelled to post my blog on your facebook page and invite your friends to come and check out this idea.  Imagine if all of you sent emails to your closest loved ones.  If you took my article on love and sent it to your favourite people.  I am quite positive that each one of you knows 5 people that would appreciate this movement.  That would enjoy my ideas.  That search for love as you do.

So, imagine now that all 600 of you share my message with all of your friends and are able to convince 5 of them to commit to living in love, as you have.  I doubt it would take more than a month for you to accomplish this task.  That means in one month we would have 3,000 people in our community of love.

Imagine that those 3,000 people do exactly what you have done.  They all share this idea with their friends and they all are able to convince 5 people to join us. one more month and all of a sudden our membership is closer to 15,000.  Another month after that and we hit 65,000.  Lo and behold, a mere 4 months from now we not only hit our goal of 250,000 but surpase it by many tens of thousands of people willing to live in love.  That puts us somewhere in June of 2012.  Another month to organize ourselves and we are in July.  4 months of saving as a community and we hit November of 2012 and have secured the assets to open our bank.  After all the red tape and paper work the doors to our bank open about 6 weeks later, on December 21st, 2012.

It sounds like a pyramid sheme.  Except it differs in one way.  There is no promise to get rich quick, no money involved in the recruiting stage.  The recruiting stage is all about love.  The currency ideas.  The income knowledge.

Imagine a pyramid scheme where the only investment was sharing ideas of love.  How could you fail?  Your only mission to find 5 people who live in love.  If you bring five people into this community you have done your job.  Your ultimate reward is not to get rich.  Your ultimate reward is an opportunity.  An opportunity to take your passions and turn them into something real.  To live a life of love, with no encumbrances.

You could like this article and move on to the next blog.  Or you could join me in searching for those 5 people you know are ready for these ideas as well.  I will not find 250,000 people alone.  But together we can do anything!
