Could you have predicted the Internet before it happened?
Could you have predicted the rise of Donald Trump?
Many things that change the world are hard to predict. They seem to emerge from nowhere.
Much that is written about the future contains no predictions of ‘emergence’. No mention that unexpected shift can and will happen.
I have never really seen an economic projection that mentions an economic crash – yet there are always economic crashes.
I have never really seen predictions of political revolutions – yet big political shifts always happen, around the world.
I see very little government and corporate policy that takes into account the massive shifts occurring in technology and human desires.
In my own life, and in myself, ways of thinking and being have emerged over the past few years that I could never have predicted. Fundamental shifts in my own consciousness have arisen to transform me, so I can now see and understand things that I could not have comprehended in the past. Had I predicted any of this? Absolutely not.
When we don’t understand how things will possibly occur, we struggle to predict them. Yet we all know that, somehow, these ‘unpredictable’ things are happening, with increasing regularity. We might as well predict unpredictability. Human beings struggle with that ambiguity.
To me, this ‘emergence’ is a really positive thing for everyone to consider. Sometimes, the world appears to be chaotic and awful – if you follow the news media. Although huge negatives will no doubt occur in the weeks, months and years ahead, I remain really positive that solutions will emerge. These solutions cannot be predicted, but they will transform this planet into a completely new reality in a relatively short space of time.
I benefit greatly from this thought-space of knowing that new wonders will emerge that I can’t currently see. Every day, negatives in the world are creating emergent positives, and I assume that this will increasingly happen. Each negative calls more people to action to create a better and more positive world. That’s my prediction.
I ask you to consider:
- What positives will emerge from perceived negatives like the rise of Donald Trump, or from Brexit?
- As more incredible ways of solving problems emerge, how will life be transformed for the better?
- How can you transform negatives in your own life into positives?
- How will you prepare for the emergence of possibilities in your own life?
- How can you capitalise on opportunities that you could not foresee?
Food for thought.
