Success Renaissance

By: jwilder, 11/12/2021

The speed of change is overwhelming. One thing that I saw at the beginning of 2021: there is a personal growth renaissance happening right now. The Internet is the foundation of this new age. It is going to change society. Here are some of the enabling components of this success renaissance.

Abundance of Knowledge (and Overload)

Knowledge is so abundant that it is overwhelming. Most people don't know how to deal with the overload. So, even though knowledge is prolific, it is still locked. In the age of short attention spans, nobody has the patience to sift through it. There is also an abundance of bad information. This leads to...

The Rise of the Teachers

The renaissance would not happen without tech empowered teachers. Teaching has been a crucial component of the creator economy. To deal with the overload of information, those with the gift of teaching will invest their time and consume massive amounts of information. This requires expert organizational skills in order to efficiently consume, classify and catalog information. The teachers will have expert writing and speaking skills in order to distill the core value from the information and communicate it to the students. The new teachers will leverage the rise of online communities and the exodus from social media.

The Rise of Communities

Social media today exploits the attention of their members by relentlessly distracting them with entertainment, recommendations and promotions (ads). The goal is to keep them in the matrix and expose them to more ads. It's a business model founded on distraction. The rise of online communities and the exodus from social media will facilitate the growth of purpose driven communities that foster the growth of the members. These community members will gladly pay for access to the community because of the promise of individual growth and meaningful connections.

Empowering Tech

Technology that empowers individuals to easily sell their services as well as make it easy to buy, will drive the personal growth renaissance. Community and teaching platforms will continue to evolve to meet the demand.

The Future

Things are still chaotic, but there are new structures forming. What will the future look like when a huge percentage of society is highly empowered with knowledge and a philosophy that empowers the individual? Maybe it is a success renaissance. But surely, it is the beginning of a massive change in society.
