Influencer Miguel Goede: Vision 2030

In this week’s blog (6th of March till the 11th of March 2023) we had an interview with Miguel Goede; we will invite you to our next MYM Book presentation on the 21st of March 2023. We will share some short videos on ‘Visioning’ by Simon Sinek. We will upload one of these videos every day on our page.

Could you tell us what has happened since we interviewed you in April 2021 concerning the Vision2030 vision document? You are launching an update, can you expand on that?
Our last interview was almost two years ago and many things have happened. The vision document was adjusted multiple times based on contacts with the persons involved as we were coming out of the Covid-pandemic.

The Award 5.0 was offered for the 3rd time in December 2022. The first Award in 2021 was awarded to all those volunteers involved in the Covid pandemic, the so-called “essential workers”. The second Award 5.0 was offered to Benjamin Visser for his involvement in “Neighborhood”-agriculture projects. The last Award was granted to ‘Kaya Kaya’ for their social innovative projects in Otrobanda.

All those selected were selected based on our criteria. The Award 5.0 is a continuation of the Change 2020 award (started in 1997) that we used to offer in the past. As we speak on this day, the 3rd of March, a new glossy version of the Vision 2030 document is released, after talking to different people and organizations like Tico Vos, ‘Unidat di Bario‘, and ‘Amigu di Tera‘ to mention some of them. They all support the Vision document. Based on these conversations, we decided to present the Vision document in a new, more attractive format to increase the probability that people will take notice of this vision document and hopefully, their actions align in manifesting this Vision. The document is now available online via

What are the other plans for the coming years of Vision2030?
This newly updated Vision document is rooted in a more organic approach, where for the nine areas identified, there are one to 3 coordinators that are the authors of the area. We will stimulate the different coordination as much as we can. For example, you, Ivan, are the coordinator for the sectors “Mindset” and “Neighborhood”. You will select those Influencers you have interviewed according to the area they are involved in. The coordinators will create a virtual network via an App or mailing list that is activated, stimulated, and monitored on what is happening. They might have meetings to see how everything is evolving in that sector, basically “connecting the dots”.

What are some of the obstacles and opportunities that you are dealing with?

The biggest obstacle is ourselves. I mean our belief in ourselves and to take action. People don’t understand deeply enough how little they should undertake to have a significant impact.
For example:
Just participating in our zoom meeting will have a tremendous effect if all of us would just participate;
Just answering our email when we approach you to share with us how your project is moving;
Offering help to another person in our network. The point is if a lot of people do something small is much more impactful compared to letting a small group of people do tons of work. If we master this mindset, then the manifestation of the Vision will be within the foreseeable future.

How can we as Share2Uplift help you? 
Share2uplift is a natural and easy partner as Share2Uplift is a network, as it has the files where 250 Influencers (we reach this mark by the end of 2023), are categorized in the 9 areas we cover in the Vision document. The Vision is a vision, but this Vision needs to be owned by and implemented by people. And very important group of the people implementing this Vision are part of the group of Influencers Share2Uplift has interviewed up to now. It is of vital importance that the Influencers have taken notice of the content of Vision 2030 and that they know their role in manifesting this Vision.

That is putting their project, their organization, and their initiative within Vision 2030 and having done that, the only thing they need to do further is to keep doing what they are doing. Just let us know once and a while what we can do for them and let us know what they can do for others. For example, what Vision2030 is doing with the platform Share2Uplift

Share2Uplift as a movement is autonomous and doing its thing; the same is true for Vision 2030. But this autonomy is relative as Share2Uplift is Vision2030 and Vision2030 is Share2Uplift And I see it also valid for all dots we connect. You become one of the wholes, organically or energetically. The progress we have made over the past years makes us very hopeful for the near future. The updated Vision 2030 document ends with a slogan: “Don’t focus your energy on fighting the existing situation, but focus your energy on creating the desired future”.

One of the 250 Influencers

We like to express our appreciation and full support for the next steps that Miguel Goede is undertaking. “Without vision, people perish”. We will try as much as possible within our means to collaborate with this initiative to create real impacts in our society. We are inviting our group of Influencers grouped according to the sectors Vision2030 uses and inviting them to the upcoming meeting on the 10th of March. But we will also start requesting periodically that all these influencers report on the progress they are making in their respective areas, so help us all gain a better overall view of how we are manifesting the Vision or adjusting the Vision with the input of all involved.
Look at the list of the Influencers we have interviewed or reported on, up to now. 

The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2022

The goal of the Share2Uplift movement is to: “Identify 250 leaders from all walks of life to connect, align and create impactful changes in all walks of life, which includes intergenerational collaboration by the end of 2022.” We will use interviewing Influencers, meet-and-greet events, “train-the-trainers”-programs on “Emotional Mastery” and “Intentionality “as national intervention strategies, to reach this goal on top of our goal to scale up the possibilities to connect, align and create impact via a virtual platform. We believe that by collaborating with Miguel Goede on the virtual Vision 2030 platform, we will accelerate the possibilities to connect the diaspora and others elsewhere in the world and on the island willing to constructively create impactful changes in Curaçao, to join.

As Share2Uplift, we are fully trying to align with this thinking of Center for Curriculum Redesign to promote this agenda in our educational systems and workplace. So, in that sense, we fully support any initiative to make our educational system 21st-century proof.

Share2Uplift aligners are those that:
– Create an inspiring vision of the future;
– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;
– Manage the delivery of the vision;
– Coach and build a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision. These criteria are now being polished.

We also consider these 5 values the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:

• Peace from within;
• Compassion;
• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;
• Responsibility.

As we will progress towards this goal, we will update you on the progress.

MYM-platform session

Our next MYM-platform session will be on the 21st of March via Zoom, where we will present two books:’We’re Talking Millions!: 12 Simple Ways To Supercharge Your Retirement’, by Paul Merriman and Richard Buck.  And the book ‘Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation’, by Daniel J. Siegel.

 We’re Talking Millions!: 12 Simple Ways To Supercharge Your Retirement
This book will be presented by Jamir Barton.
Understanding how to invest wisely for your future can be daunting. Many people never get started for fear of making mistakes. Others make choices based on hearsay and hope. In “We’re Talking Millions!” you will learn why and how to make a handful of smart choices that can turn modest regular savings into a secure future. You’ll discover “12 Small Steps with Big Payoffs,” each of which can add $1 million or more to your retirement nest egg if you start in your 20s or 30s. These steps are well known. Now for the first time, “We’re Talking Millions!” combines them into a single action plan you can implement in less than one hour a year. That could be the most valuable time you’ll ever spend. Get started now!
Long-time financial educator/retired advisor Paul Merriman and co-author Richard Buck have boiled down decades of academic-based knowledge and experience to help Millennials and Gen Y’ers get started and stay on the right track of saving and investing for life using 401ks, IRAs and other simple investments like target date funds. 
“This is an exciting new fact based investment approach, coming from authors who have earned the trust and respect of a couple of generations of investors. I wish I had had this knowledge when I was in my 20s.” — Larry Swedroe, Director of Research at Buckingham Family of Financial Services and author of “Your Complete Guide to a Successful and Secure Retirement”.

Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation
This book will be presented by Ivan Kuster.

From a pioneer in the field of mental health comes a groundbreaking book on the healing power of “mindsight,” the potent skill that allows you to make positive changes in your brain–and in your life.
Foreword by Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence:
• Is there a memory that torments you, or an irrational fear you can’t shake?
• Do you sometimes become unreasonably angry or upset and find it hard to calm down?
• Do you ever wonder why you can’t stop behaving the way you do, no matter how hard you try?
• Are you and your child (or parent, partner, or boss) locked in a seemingly inevitable pattern of conflict?
Using case histories from his practice, Dr. Siegel shows how, by following the proper steps, nearly everyone can learn how to focus their attention on the internal world of the mind in a way that will literally change the wiring and architecture of their brain. 

Through his synthesis of a broad range of scientific research with applications to everyday life, Dr. Siegel has developed novel approaches that have helped hundreds of patients. Dr. Siegel describes:
• a sixteen-year-old boy with bipolar disorder who uses meditation and other techniques instead of drugs to calm the emotional storms that made him suicidal
• a woman paralyzed by anxiety, who uses mindsight to discover, in an unconscious memory of a childhood accident, the source of her dread
• a physician–the author himself–who pays attention to his intuition, which he experiences as a “vague, uneasy feeling in my belly, a gnawing restlessness in my heart and my gut,” and tracks down a patient who could have gone deaf because of an inaccurately written prescription for an ear infection
• a twelve-year-old girl with OCD who learns a meditation that is “like watching myself from outside myself” and, using a form of internal dialogue, is able to stop the compulsive behaviors that have been tormenting her.
These and many other extraordinary stories illustrate how mindsight can help us master our emotions, heal our relationships, and reach our fullest potential.

Date: 21st of March
Time: 7.00 – 9.00 PM
