Building the world we wish to see


You may have been told that the world is just the way it is and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. People may have told you that you are powerless to incite change, to drive progress, to be an example for others. They told you that it wasn’t up to you to push the envelope, to innovate, to lead the way. They told you that you couldn’t make a difference.

But what if they were wrong? What if they told you that simply because they couldn’t imagine doing so and therefore you shouldn’t either?

I want you to understand, in no uncertain terms that they are, in fact, wrong. You are capable. You have been equipped. YOU have the power to literally change the world. And it all starts from within.

Desire is expression seeking possibility” – Wallace Wattles

You feel the desire deep within, ready to spring forth. You know there is “more” out there. You might not be sure how to let out what you feel burning inside you. That’s ok, this is a process, a journey, an exploration and development of the latent gifts, talents, and tools God has placed within you. It doesn’t have to come out all at once. It can be a work in progress. Often times it is. And that is ok. This blog is going to be a resource for you to help you actualize, to release, and manifest the potential within you into the reality you seek to create.

If you are here, with me, then it’s highly likely that we share at least some of the same desires. We have a similar vision. We want to see the world become a better place, not only for ourselves, but for the rest of humankind. Not only do you want to witness this betterment, you want to be a catalyst for the good of the world. You want to give and receive love. You want better opportunities for yourself and your children. And for your children’s children. You want to feel a part of your community. You want to see your fellow man and woman treated with fairness, justice and equality. You want the opportunity to pursue your life, your liberty and your happiness. Together, you and I can bring about the world we wish to see. We have the desire and WE can make it happen. And it all starts from within.

This blog is going to cover and be many things.  Here, in the ensuing posts, I will cover and share the lessons I am learning, the books I am studying, the languages I am exploring, the lectures I am listening to, the discussions I am having. I’ll write clear and concise analysis on contemporary topics typically shrouded in arcane complexity- in an effort to help equip you as you become more informed and persuasive in your sphere of influence. I hope and believe you will help me do the same as you share your knowledge and experiences with me. I’ll cover nutrition, exercise, my journey into the martial arts of Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Krav Maga (I’m still a beginner in that world!). We will explore economic policy, social issues, and current events. Not every post will be exactly relevant to you, but there will be something in almost every submission, that if you join me in the exploration and discussion, you will be able to take away and apply to your immediate world, In doing so you will be helping to bring about the improvement you so passionately desire.

As you and I learn and grow and our thoughts become our words, and our words become our actions, we will inevitably be changing the world for the better. We will be making our vision a reality.

And THAT is really exciting!  

In love, strength, and unity,

Michael L. Keck

  1. In order to change the world, it’s imperative to start with those coming after us. This generation of teenagers is the most technologically savvy ever. They opportunities available to them are limitless.

    Sadly, they are also the most spiritually lost generation ever. Stats from the Kentucky Baptist Convention reveal that over 90% of young people between the ages of 12 and 24 don’t know Jesus. Christian pollsters The Barna Group has found that less than 10% of teenagers go to church, and 60% of this 10% will abandon their faith after high school.

    If I could literally change the world, I’d start by evangelizing the Twelve24 demographic and then watch them start reaching their peers for Jesus. The change I want to see is a great revival among our young people. The devil has had control of them for far too long.

    • Christis, AMEN! I have never seen that quote before and I thank you sincerely for sharing it with me! In doing so you have inspired a future blog post on that very topic. And that is what I want this blog to be about- coming together and inspring each other to spread the good news, to be His hands and feet in the world, and make a impact in the public and private realms! Again, thank you and blessings to you and your family!


      • You are very welcome! That has always been one of my favorite quotes. Are you familiar with the book “America’s God and Country” by William J. Federer? It is an extensive collection of quotes from our Founding Fathers along with other leaders in American history and is a virtual gold mine of wisdom. You might like to check it out. I will be looking forward to the blog post (and will pass along the well-wishes :)! Blessings in Christ!
