Today, I woke up to the sad news that one of the biggest retail shops for kids toys in the UK named Toy R Us is closing 100 of its retail units and 3000 people will lose their jobs. This means a number the employees' families will be affected and there will be lots of pressures for those affected. With that, it has made me to reflect on the future and ask myself, "Am I prepared for future?" " Are my earnings safe when I am solely relying a paid job?".
I am not here to be a doomsday prophet but to simply provoke us to WAKE UP because of the reality of negatives like redundancies, loss of earnings, and loss of employment. These are eventualities that all of us need to be prepared for when they happen. They say, "failure to plan is planning to fail". Similarly, failure to prepare is preparing to fail.
You may ask, what would be my alternative income options in the event of such an eventuality since I only have a specialised skill/profession/trade? My answer is, you are not stuck, you can learn today of the new skills to adapt and prepare for any loss of earnings in future even without a formal higher education certificate. You can do this by participating in the ever growing digital economy.
I am talking about the Digital Skills you can learn about, so that you can start your own online business from scratch. That is what I did.
I joined the Six Figure Mentors in 2017, received their training and went on to start my online business and I am continuing to grow in that. Since joining, I feel like I have developed as a person and I am now more confident as a Digital entrepreneur. With this positivity, practical skills and knowledge of online business, I am now equipped for the future such that I would not depend on a 9-5 job.
This is my clarion call to encourage you that you shouldn't look into the future with a sense of hopelessness and defeat. Rather, you should embrace the future knowing that you cannot be stuck as long as you are willing to learn and change. I too was a risk averse individual who wouldnt have started an online business but thankfully I acted on this opportunity and I have never regretted this. The amount of freedom, learning and development you get is second to none. It's a total package which not only help you to develop as a person but also to secure your future earnings.
