After Thinking Outside The Box

Excited thoughts by Mitch Santell

The phrase so many of us have heard over the past 30+ years is about “Thinking Outside the Box!” Thank God the box is finally on fire, and so many of us entrepreneurs are ready to step out from the circle of mediocrity to create something bigger!

It is better to “burn the box” rather than think outside of it.

Why You Should Stop Caring and Start Doing What You Love

By Luken Surge Via The Daily Bell

How do you do what you love when it goes against everything you have been taught by this collectivist society? Do you get told that your dreams will land you in the gutter? That your passions are a surefire way to crash and burn? Well, what if that wasn’t true at all? What if you could earn a living from doing exactly what you love? (Spoiler Alert: You can!)

Here is the truth of 2018: you don’t have to be trapped by society’s prefabricated boxes anymore. The digital era has opened up a trove of new opportunities in industries and markets that didn’t even exist 10-20 years ago. New products and services are popping up every day. There is a rising demand for unexpected skills and passions. There is definitely a place in this new world for you.

The Box is burning right now and it’s a pretty good time to get out of it.

The reality is that the old world is falling away, and quickly. Industries, products, and companies that reigned supreme years ago are moving overseas, being replaced by AI & machines, or going out of business.

A good example is Blackberry. Back when smartphones were hitting the market, Blackberry didn’t go with the new trend. Blackberry wanted to stay with their old model, but the market was demanding the ability to customize their own experience. They never adapted and Blackberry faded from the store shelves.

More recently, Toys R Us has been left in the dust. By not adapting to the shifts in the toy-selling market, they fell behind.

Sounds a little depressing, doesn’t it? But it just means opportunity for you.

The way is opening for new markets, and you can find–or create–your place in them right now.

You don’t have to open a physical store: eBay and Amazon provide platforms to sell products.

Many of the wealthiest people got their start renting real estate. That’s never been easier or more lucrative with Airbnb.

Education on any skill you want to learn is at your fingertips online–and often free.

You want to travel and do your work on the go? There is the digital nomad lifestyle that didn’t even exist a few years ago.
