Can you FEEL IT? Unfortunately, most of us haven’t realized that something extraordinary is happening in the world. So, do you wonder – why is the world changing? Well, in this article we’re going to show you 8 good reasons why is this happening:
- No one can stand the employment model.
Yes, no one can stand this model any longer. Why – because we are reaching our limits. People who work in big corporations can’t stand their jobs. The lack of purpose knocks on your door as if it came from inside you like a yell of despair. And most people want out. They just want to drop everything. For example: how many people are willing to risk entrepreneurship, people leaving on sabbaticals, people with work-related depression, people in burnout.
- The entrepreneurship model is changing.
In the last 4 years, thousands of entrepreneurs turned their garages into offices to bring their billion-dollar ideas to life. The vortex of entrepreneurship was to find an investor and get funded — to be funded was like winning the World Cup or the Super Bowl.
So, what really happens after you get funded? Well, we can answer that question for you – you’ll get back to being an employee. You may have brought in people not sharing your dream, not in agreement with your purpose, and soon it’s all about the money. The financial end becomes the main driver of your business. We all know that many people are suffering with it. Excellent startups began to tumble because the money-seeking model is endless.
- The rise of collaboration.
You probably already know that it doesn’t make any sense to go on by yourself. Many people have awakened from the “each man for himself” mad mentality. So, can you do me a favor – stop, take a step back, and think. Isn’t it absurd that we, 7 billion of us living in the same planet, have grown further apart from each other? And, just think about it – what sense does it make to turn your back on the thousands, maybe millions, of people living around you in the same city? But, the good thing is that many things are changing. Sharing, collaborative economy concepts are being implemented, and it points towards a new direction of collaborating, of sharing, of helping, of togetherness.
- We are finally figuring out what the Internet is.
The Internet is amazing and finally, we are understanding its power. With the Internet, the world is opened, the barriers fall, the separation ends, the togetherness starts, the collaboration explodes, the help emerges.
Many people around the world saw true revolutions that used the Internet as the primary catalyst, such as the Arab Spring. Internet is taking down mass control. The internet will help you explore whatever you may want to. And, with the advent of the Internet, the small and poor people are no longer speechless. There is a voice. The anonymous become acknowledged. The world comes together. And finally – the system can fall.
- The fall of exaggerated consumerism.
Unfortunately, we’ve been manipulated to consume as much as we possibly can, to buy every new product launched — the newest car, the latest iPhone, the top brands, lots of clothes, shoes, lots and lots and lots of pretty much anything we could our hands on. And, when you go “against the crowd”, many people have understood that this is way off. Low sumerism, slow life and slow food are a few types of action being taken as we speak, pointing out the contradiction of how absurdly we have come to organize ourselves. Fewer people are using cars, fewer people are overspending and more people are swapping clothes, buying used goods, sharing assets, cars, apartments, offices. People, let’s face it – we don’t need all of that they told us we needed.
- Healthy and organic eating.
Unfortunately, we’ve accepted eating anything! YES, it only needed to taste good, and everything would be alright. And now, companies started to practically poison our food and we didn’t say anything! But, when some people started waking up, enabling and strengthening healthy and organic eating.
This is only going to get stronger. Food production is one of the basic fundamentals of our society. If we change our mindset, our eating habit and our way of consuming, corporations will have to respond and adapt to a new market.
- The awakening of spirituality.
Can I ask you something – how many friends do you have who practice yoga or meditate? And now, think back, 10 years ago – how many people did you know by then who practiced these activities? The good thing is that this is also changing. We’ve come to the edge of reason and rationality. We were able to realize that, with only our conscious mind, we can’t figure out everything that goes on here. You want to understand how these things work — how life operates, what happens after death, what is this energy thing people talk about so much, what is quantum physics, how thoughts can be materialized and create our sense of reality, what is coincidence and synchronicity, why meditation works, how it’s possible to cure some ailments using nothing but bare hands, how those alternative therapies not always approved by regular medicine can actually work sometimes.
- Un-schooling trends.
Have you ever asked yourself:
- Who created this teaching model?
- Who chose the classes you have to take?
- Who chose the lessons we learn in history classes?
- Why didn’t they teach us the truth about other ancient civilizations?
- Why should kids follow a certain set of rules?
- Why should they watch everything in silence?
- Why should they wear a uniform?
- What about taking a test to prove what you actually learned?
The real truth is that we developed a model that perpetuates and replicates followers of the system, that breed people into ordinary human beings. But, the good thing is that a lot of people are working to rethink that though concepts such as un-schooling, hack-schooling and homeschooling. Maybe you’ve never thought of that and even may be in shock. But it’s happening. And, people are being woken up and are realizing how crazy it is to live in this society. Just take a look at all these new actions and try to think everything we were taught so far is normal. I don’t think it is. There is something extraordinary happening.
