    After reading around this forum , I see many members here who make money from researching daily or quick- happening, trends. A lot of money can be made from following these trends, but its possible to make even more money when following and positioning yourself in front of Global Trends that will ultimately effect our world.

    After doing some digging around I found an interesting video that I will share with you in a bit. What was contained in this video was the three reasons why "Right Brainers Will Rule the Future". The video explains, in the first part, the cause of it all.

    First, in the introduction, he uses the brain as a metaphor, dividing it in its 2 separate halves. The left brain is used for
    Code:
    
    
    analytical, linear, sequential, thinking. The right brain is used for artistic, empathic, "big picture", context, and synthesis, thinking.

    Not surprisingly, some neuro-scientists have done research indicting that 25%, roughly, of the US has ADD/ADHD, and it is only increasing.

    ADD/ADHD is predominantly "right brain" thinking. Not only does this video explain why "right brainers" will rule the future, but data and research concludes that more people are becoming "ADD/ADHD",using their right brain more predominantly, and the constant connection to media and technology is part of the cause.

    The three trends CAUSING this change are:

    Abundance: In this part he explains how the U.S has gained more prosperity in the last 50 years or so, yet research shows, as a country, we are not any happier. Which results in why "The Purpose Driven Life," is one of the best selling non- fiction books of all time. More and more people are turning to "the meaning" of life and their spiritual side.

    In addition, he explains why having more self storage businesses than Wendys, Mcdonalds, and Burger Kings combined, is significant.

    Automation: Secondly, automation is eliminated more and more jobs and businesses, one at a time. You'll find out which jobs/business to avoid, and which ones to pursue. If you're thinking of going to college, or in college, this video is for you.

    Asia: In 2010, India will have more English speaking people than the US. They will do American jobs for about 75% less, and be able to connect to the US for virtually nothing. He explains why this is significant and how this will effect the US.

    3 questions to ask yourself to see that you're job or business is more secure:

    1. Can someone overseas do it cheaper? - If yes, find a new career
    2. Can a computer do it faster? If yes, look for a new caeer
    3. Is what you're selling in demand in an age of abundance? If no, sell something thats in demand.

    Research shows that SELF MADE Millionaires are 4 times likely to have a learning disability, like Dyslexia. When the left brain is less performable, the right brain becomes more active. Just like in a blind person, they can usually develop better hearing/smell sense to make up for the lack of seeing.

    Some examples of self made millionaires with learning disabilities are: Richard Branson, Charles Schwab, owners of Ikea, and Jet blue, just to name a few. Richard Branson has openly said he credits his wild success to his learning disability, dyslexia:

    He proposes 6 areas to focus on to become more successful in the new right brain world.

    1. Design
    2. Story
    3. Symphony
    4. Empathy
    5. Play
    6. Meaning

    Why is this important?

    The same reason why hopping on quick money making internet trends is important.

    Position yourself in front of the trend and you can stand to make a lot of money.

    Go where the growth is.

    Internet, Technology, and Direct sales/marketing/advertising is the business to be in. Home based business. While this may be nothing new to many members here, remember that most of the US and world don't see the trends. And if you're not in front, or ahead of the trends, you're already behind.

    Good luck to all in 2009

    @marketinggod

    These are the kind of posts that make me feel warm inside.

    I agree that many successful entrepreneurs have some kind of learning disability.

    It goes down to being conditioned or have the ability not to be.

    Left brain thinkers = Conditioned from the media, propaganda, go to college, get a degree, work a stable job earning a modest income from a corporation. May be proficient at certain skills such as reading / writing / math / whatever it may be (college degree, anybody?).

    Right brain thinkers = May own a corporation or even a chain of subsidiaries under that corporation. Thinks on a large scale, thinks "big picture". Can see through media bullshit because he/she is the one at the top. Could be good at certain skill sets but more skilled at seeing outside of the box, naturally.

    If you go to college with a goal of getting a job pertaining to your future college degree, you're being conditioned and it's going to be VERY tough leaving that mindset.

    Also what's very true is if you're not interested in something then it's going to be very tough to grasp it. Working on projects lately like a nonstop addict, I've come to know that understanding your target market is super essential (empathy) if not one of the most important details.

    Again, marketinggod. Thanks for this post. This will definitely open some eyes.

    hey chrales,

    some people may disagree and thats fine. i just go by the numbers and data which speaks for itself.

    also i wanted to put the video in the post instead of people downloading it on the torrent. how can i put the video in this post if its on my computer?

    I only know how to take a video from you tube and put it in the post.

    The video is on my computer, so whats the best way to get it on this forum?

    I go by the data and myself -- I have ADHD.

    I'd say the best way to share your video is to upload it to Google video / youtube and post it here too.
