Learn To Spot Trends

If you want to be successful in life, then learn to spot trends before they happen.

This is important because a trend’s advantage is that a trend gains power over time. It’s not like a fad where it’s merely part of a moment. A trend is a tool to be used and will become more valuable as other people commit to engaging in it.

The trick though is to avoid dying trends and learn to chase good trends, meaning trends that have longevity.

If you chase things in a dying industry or things that are not going to be around long term, then that will only lead you to fail in business or to inevitably get laid off by your company.

Brick and mortar is an example of a dying trend. Just look at book stores. Book stores are struggling to survive and are barely staying in business because sales are starting to happen online now and not in stores.

On the other hand, online retail, which is e-commerce, is now a 1.3 trillion dollar industry and growing.

Companies like Amazon are growing rapidly, while companies like Walmart, Sears, Macy’s, and CVS are shutting down stores.

Learn to follow good trends and avoid bad ones. This will play a big role in whether you succeed or fail.

  1. personal trends are important too. They will reflect where you are in life and how you feel about yourself. Spike heels are a sexy trend for younger ladies but not for 70 year olds. Sports cars are a trend for young at heart but not for large families. Diets are the trend for those who want to be thinner but not for those who spend more time physically working out. Living in the center of the city in a condo or apt works for go getters to be near their jobs but not for families who are more concerned about their children’s environment. Most trends come and go and change is what life is about. Even buying stock for retirement trends.. be flexible and you will always grow!
