Upon attending the World Domination Summit, that presented people who are doing massive, ambitious and seriously world-changing things, Corbett came away with three bullet points:
1 – Don’t ask permission: The only person you need permission from to change the world is you, are you waiting for permission?
2 – Dream Big : It all starts with dreaming bigger than most people dare, Are you dreaming big enough?
3 – Start with your world : Maybe you need to change your life before you can change the world. Do you need to start with your world?

This project tracked students from Mount Madonna School near Watsonville, CA, on a journey to discover the true basis of human happiness. This engaged students in a conversation about how their values and ethics are connected to happiness and to the meaning and purpose in their lives. Once students identify their own happiness they can use this to change the world around them.
