In the blink of an eye, it feels like we have reached the end of 2021. A year in which we got a lot of surprises that made this world full of new experiences and understandings. However, next year will be no less exciting. Every year, there must be a surprise for each. And here are the things you need to pay attention to in the next year.
A Fresh Start
We are a naturally curious living thing. Many studies say that humans are afraid of new things. Fear of failure, fear of being wrong, fear of being uncomfortable, and so on. However, on the one hand, humans are also curious creatures. Therefore, try to overcome your fear and start a new beginning next year.
A new beginning, you can do many new things that you may not or have not had time to do this year. For those of you who are still students, maybe you can try to join an organization, try applying to become the chairman. You can also try to find internship or work opportunities to secure your future career. In fact, you may even venture to start a new business with your college colleagues.
A World That Keeps Moving Forward
The world next year will be very different from this year. It’s not going to be the same, it’s definitely changing. The pandemic is not completely over, it is even said that there is a new Omicron variant along with regulations that will be present. And, there will be a lot of shifts in the economic, political, and social model in our country.
You see, now there are many changes in the world of finance, such as the presence of cryptocurrency which is expected to become an investment instrument and even payment in the future. This is also influenced by the increasing level of digitalization, triggered by the presence of this pandemic. Do not forget the announcement of Mr. Zuckerberg with the presence of “Metaverse” as a new virtual world that seems similar to the real world. Those variables could create huge shifts in our societal model.
There are many more various megatrends that are present in the world, which you can observe and understand as the generation that will use this technology. You can understand this knowledge. Who knows, it could be of use to you in the future.
A Better, Hardened Version of Yourself
“If money is your only hope for freedom, then you will never get it. Knowledge, Experience, and Ability will provide security for you,” said Henry Ford.
By boldly starting a new start and taking the initiative to learn about this world, you will be much better than you were in the previous year. From new experiences and knowledge, you will not start from zero. You will be much more reliable in dealing with problems and challenges that will come. From there, you will understand that what matters is yourself. Not money, wealth, position, but self-quality.
So, those are maybe a few words that can be conveyed at the end of the year. Make this year-end moment unforgettable, and remember, you can face next year well!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
