Just by watching the news, anyone can figure out society is changing rapidly, in both positive and negative ways. Ignoring these changes is dangerous since the path to riches changes as society evolves.
Society has transformed repeatedly in the last several years. One interesting chain of events that this change has brought about can be seen in the recent shifts in the manufacturing industry. A few years ago, many large manufacturing firms began to outsource to other countries. Then, the United States tried to dig itself out of the Great Recession. As this happened, it became abundantly clear that manufacturing jobs located right here in the United States would be a good way to turn the country around. Why? Because it would create jobs for people like you and me! Those who saw the tides change and jumped on the manufacturing bandwagon took a bad situation and turned it into wealth. You can do the same thing!
History has shown us that opportunity comes through many different channels, sometimes when people least expect it. By determining what matters to society, the population often drives the decision of what will become a wealth-generating product or industry. How can you take advantage of these shifts? By doing what I do: keep your eyes and ears open. If you do this, you’ll understand what’s going on around you and in the greater context of the global economy and thus identify what could be your generator of wealth.
It’s almost impossible for you or me to know what the future holds. However, those who are able to spot trends and take action will be better positioned to build their dreams and earn the wealth they desire.
