Have a vision to rise and advance your career. Your imagination is more important than your knowledge. You can be knowledgeable and still be frozen. Progress and wealth are not determined purely by knowledge. That is why those who run the world are not usually the top graduates in their classes.
Yes, there are different skills required to thrive in the world than the ones teachers used to determine our school grades. In this age, your creativity is more catalytic than any experience you think you have. You need to imagine. You need to create. And as you do, the advancement will come in 2021.
But you cannot create if you are not observant. That is why 2021 must be the year where you must deepen your Awareness and Observation. Those two attributes are exceedingly important. They help you to anticipate evolving changes and new patterns before others.
Walmart calls your grandmother’s chewing stick “organic toothbrush”, selling it at premium. By putting “organic” on the box, Walmart goes at the heart of people’s perception. But for that to happen, it has awareness that the movement is going to natural products. The same product which seems ancestral and old fashioned in rural Africa is now a premium one in America!
What can you do to fix that problem you encounter daily? In this video, I provide a roadmap on how you can begin.
