You may have any passion in the world but you can’t ignore the power of money and technology around you. With series of events in last one decade, be it global financial crisis of 2007-08 to rise of blockchain technology and crypto-currencies like Bitcoin (although it was worst performing currency in 2014, but still it has been making significant impact), be it Brexit or the rise of businessmen’s impact on Politics, or even demonetization in India, every bit of event has made significant impact on how we choose to live our lives.
Irrespective of your profession here are top three reasons of why you need awareness about Banking and Technology:
- You are impacted directly and significantly than ever before: Globalization, Global Markets, de-regulated crypto currencies, tools of Finance like leverage using Derivatives. Did these keywords ring a bell in your mind? Internet has no boundaries and so does new technologies like BlockChain and crypto-currencies. Banks, you trust, play with your money (most of the times responsibly) using lots of leverage. So, if anyone have paid little attention about financial crisis of economies would know that anyone can fail, be it you or be it your local bank or a conglomerate giant bank irrespective of what financial tools are used / not used.
- Public is appreciating Leadership with Businessman mentality: Trump in USA and Macron in France; BREXIT causing destabilization in Political structure. Not gun or laws but money gives power and money is flowing in abundance by Business. It’s not about Good or Bad. It’s about the way our perspectives have been changing over generations. Future belongs to Businessmen. Good thing is that a Businessman does not have biases; if a deal is good Businessman would make it. All that impacts public here is the intention of the Leader (Businessman). I hope we have humanity-intentioned Businessmen in world.
- Exponential increase in power of millions of individual due to Technology: Online banking, young generation’s pokemon, unethical hackers, ransom in Bitcoin. If you can connect the dots in these keywords, you got the point. There was no time in the history of humanity when one individual, one common man, had so much power in her hand. Next generation’s question is – “Are we working for money or are we working for well-being?”. There is abundance of wealth and prosperity for all of us if we can shift our focus from “Money” to “Well-being”, but right now it’s more about Money.
To summarize, it’s not about reversing any of the reasons mentioned, it’s about preparing and being at ease for the in-process evolution of Human Beings. Collectively, we are an immense ocean of well-being only if we choose our intentions and actions carefully. Fortunately, Human Beings are good at it – being flexible, being co-operative and being visionary.
