I bet there are going to be like the last five:
Some people will start with nothing and achieve the most incredible successes. The contest for getting people’s attention is going to get harder and harder. People who are trusted by a lot of people will become even more valuable.
An underdog that people cheer on, an agent for change, can be a victim but he isn’t.
Victims incite empathy. Underdogs incite hope.
We don’t want facts.
Nobody is going to gather all information and make a scientific decision upon it.
As humans get more powerful, stories matter more and more.
We do not share things unless we get compensated for it. Compensation can have many different forms, even making the world a better place is a form of compensation-related motivation.
The problem with getting people to share your stuff is, that the more direct the ‘payment’ the less the sharing is worth.
“Do you have any iPhone chargers?”
“Do you know where we can get some?”
“No, you cannot get any today. All stores are closed on Sunday and it’s already past four o’clock. You can try tomorrow early.”
My friend got her charger. That day. Around the corner. Why? Because she tried only one more time.
Always try only one more time. Then if it doesn’t work – try only one more time. Maybe it will work. Who knows.
The thing I know is, that’s called the circle of achieving dreams, of making the unlikely likely, and of a rich, well-lived life, filled not only with big ambitions but also enormous achievements.
