A world where everybody is an entrepreneur doing something they love

IMG_0545

 

We are currently living in a time of great technological transformations. The internet has created enormous opportunities for individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses. The most clear game changer with the internet is the direct peer to peer contact it offers with all kinds of people from all around the world. It creates a fabulous opportunity to develop an online business or project in something you truly love and enjoy. In the process, you get to directly connect with many different people finding potential fans and clients who appreciate, love and value what you are doing.

 

Moving away from old Industrial Age model jobs

Currently many people are still stuck in Industrial Age jobs. These jobs are often of a repetitive nature even if, for now, they may provide a stable income and job security. And it could be argued that many people who do these kind of jobs don’t enjoy them (even if they may pretend that they do) and do them purely for the money. Yet these are the jobs most at risk from automation. These are not just jobs in the retail, construction, transport and basic service industries but also high skilled jobs in the legal, financial and, ironically, even tech industries (there will come a time when AI will be able to do most of the programming/data analysing jobs and create better software than humans can).

 

Tapping into your creativity 100%

When the above scenario occurs, instead of the dystopian reality that many predict, people will have a great opportunity to develop a business or project doing something they truly love. They will be using their creativity 100%. They will have to. They will have no other choice. It will be the most important “commodity” we have to offer. The alternative option is to be part of a society of “useless people” (a most disempowering term) who constantly lament about how they used to have a solid job and no longer have it due to automation. These are people who sadly haven’t tapped into their creative resources and the immense power within themselves. Instead they fail to change/adapt and are constantly stuck in the past. A very sad state of affairs but it doesn’t have to be live this!

 

The importance of using your initiative

In our current society only a small segment of the population use their initiative. Most people are crippled by fear, anxiety and low levels of self esteem to take the initiative to start their own business or project. They are more comfortable applying for a limited and dwindling supply of jobs. But one day in the future everyone may be forced to use their initiative. Yet it will be by utilising their creative gifts to their fullest capacity. After automation has made obsolete many jobs in existence our creativity will be king and the entire global economy will be full of individual entrepreneurs and startups all utilising their creativity and operating in something they love, which even benefits and contributes to society in a meaningful way. It will be a truly pure and direct sharing economy of people interacting and transacting with their unique services.

Timing is the best friend you could ever have

IMG_0538

 

This subject has been on my mind for a while now. We all wonder, what does timing actually mean to us? Timing can be defined differently by so many.

I reflected quite recently and thought, why are we making decisions at certain times?

Timing is something quite wonderful. After a long period of searching comes this warm and glowing sun, which paves a pathway in the ocean for us to walk down. For many of us, we expect to be at our destination a lot quicker than anticipated. In life we cannot rush, we just have to go with the tide.

When does timing really make sense?

 

Making peace with the past

Still to this day, I am working on making peace with my past, since you cannot do much to change what has happened previously. We all tend to hold some resentment towards what may have scarred us up until now. There is a reason why the past is called the past and not the present. We learn from this and move forward with the aim to make the present and future better for us.

 

Becoming a better person

This is your opportunity to work on making yourself better and becoming the person you want to be. Some of us want this to happen straight away but you cannot force this. You will see yourself evolve.

 

Healing opportunity

We all have wounds which are quite raw and we constantly rub salt into them. Now is your time to reflect and close the chapters associated with these wounds.

 

Turning negative thinking into positive thinking

The moment you rewire your way of thinking, life will start looking brighter. You will leave a place of darkness and regain control of your life. Nothing lasts forever unless you let it. I am very familiar with this feeling as I am currently coming out of an energy zap.

 

Reconnecting with others

There may come times in your life where we may feel disconnected from others. This is a natural part of life. It is important to give these situations space and time to let people reconnect and align. Note that later on in your life, you may realise that this was of the best things you ever could have done.

 

The moment everything falls into place

You will look back and realise that you had to go through lots of ups and downs in order to get to where you are now. This experience not only made you stronger, but more the wiser. As I mentioned before, after lots of trial and error comes a golden period. The moment this period arrives, your life will proceed like lightning. This energy will be electrifying. You will find that everything you have ever worked hard towards will pay off.

 

Moments of confusion are short lived and will not last. The most important thing is to keep going and push through the pain. It is so easy to drop off, but know that in the long run, the heavens opening is only round the corner. Your bliss is coming and be ready for it!
