Events to Happen
Nothing Happens Spontaneously
All events to happen in the future of any kind will come as the result of a series of connected past chain of events. Some Events To Happen in the future will come as a result of a series of events which connected then only recently. Many Events To Happen in the future will come as the result of a series of linked events that will then extend back decades and even centuries.
Events to Happen
These are future events that WILL HAPPEN no matter what anyone does. Their past chain of events has already dictated these events will happen. They cannot be changed or prevented from happening.
Things to Come
Things To Come are future events that will happen but we still have the opportunity to alter their outcomes through actions we take now and in the future.
Learning to See and Altering the Future
Monitor and Analyze The 3 Headwaters of Your Prophecies
These “3 Headwaters” are:
- Global Demographics;
- The Technologies of the Times; and,
- The 3 Pendulums of a Society.
The first step in Learning To See and Altering The Future is to continually monitor and analyze “The 3 Headwaters of Prophecy”. It is important to monitor and analyze the data and events that will most impact you and your Organization. After your analysis of what is most important to you and your Organization is complete, then perform the following steps.
Publish Your Prophecies
After you have made your conclusions, you must publish your Prophecies for at least your Organization to see and read. Publish your prophecies in two Types as follows:
Type I Prophecies – Global Events To Happen. These are your predictions of major events that will shape the future of the World from the date of your predictions through future generations. Remember, these events WILL happen and nothing can be done to prevent them from happening.
Type II Prophecies – Regional, Local and Industry Specific Events To Happen That Will Most Impact You and Your Organization. These are your predictions of the major events that will shape the future of your life and the Organization you lead. Again, remember, these events WILL happen and nothing can be done to prevent them from happening.
Establish and Publish Your Vision
After you have concluded upon and published both your Type I and Type II Prophecies, then establish your Vision for the Organization you lead and for your own personal life and your Family. Openly publish that Vision as the beginning and basis of your Organization’s future quests, strategies and customary business planning.
Publish Your Story and Be The Chief Storyteller
In order to best articulate your Prophecies to others you must develop your story and be your own best storyteller. As you tell your story to others be sure to encourage them to develop their own Type I and Type II Prophecies both for their personal lives and to test if they agree with yours. Obviously, not everyone will agree on the same Prophecies. Just because these Events To Happen are going to happen and cannot be stopped or altered, does not mean we will all predict them the same or with 100% certainty or accuracy.
Publish Your Vision, Strategies and Business Plan
After you have your Type I and Type II Prophecies firmly in your mind; vision, strategies and business plans will come easy to you and to others with more confidence and conviction than you will ever have experienced before.
Establish Your “Serendipity Pools”
As much as we would all love to solve all the problems of the World, obviously we cannot. But what we can do is establish what I call “Serendipity Pools” to establish those areas of critical interest to us and the Organizations we lead. We then can use those Serendipity Pools to focus our time, money and mind share on opportunities arising from events coming through our Serendipity Pools. Serendipity Pools can be closely related to what we currently do, or to monitor chains of historical events for areas we are not currently involved in.
Confronting Type II Events To Happen and Channeling Things To Come Decisions Through Your Serendipity Pool Pathways
If possible, it is best to confront future Type II Events To Happen within your Serendipity Pools and to also make your Things To Come decisions within your Serendipity Pools.
Decision Making Under Uncertainty
The final step in learning to Alter the Future is to become a star in decision making under uncertainty. This is a skill that is not hard to learn if followed through our structured process.
