On this Super Tuesday, I sense change is in the air ...
Change is an everyday part of our lives, to ignore change is often an expensive lesson that few can afford.
On this Super Tuesday, oh how the mighty have fallen.
If you thought I was just referring to Hillary Clinton, you would only be partially right.
Just look back a month or two, Ms. Clinton had a commanding lead in the polls and looked liked a shoe in to win the democratic nomination for president.
Now, lets take a look at another front runner, this one is in the stock market and not the political arena.
Google during this same time frame that Ms. Clinton looked unstoppable, was trading close to $750 dollars a share. By all accounts it seemed destined to reach $1,000!!
Now fast forward to Super Tuesday and we see Hillary Clinton fighting for her political life and Googles stock sinking below $500.
Both Clinton and Google are been challenged by powerful forces that are agents of change. On the political front it is Barack Obama, on the business front it is Microsoft.
One things for sure, Barack Obama represents change to a great many young people. Microsoft on the other hand is just so powerful and wealthy that it can buy and make change happen. Does anyone remember Netscape??? Well Netscape was the most popular web browser and used to commanded a market share close to 90%. Just like Google it to seemed unstoppable, unbeatable and at the top of its game. Enter Microsoft and within a few years Netscape was history, as it was purchased and absorbed into the AOL family and quickly fell into oblivion.
The point of this post is to illustrate that change can be a good thing and change always offers opportunities.
You can always learn new things and learn to profit from change.
One prediction I can make about the future that I know will be 100% correct is this ...
Are you ready?
Here's my prediction ... "Things change"
I have always believed that change equals opportunity. It's one of the lessons I learned early in life. You can learn about change here.
You can learn how to time change here.
As for the elections, may the best man or woman win.
As for Google and Microsoft ... well that's a whole different story that is changing everyday.
Enjoy this Super Tuesday, as one way or another, it represents a defining change for these United States of America.
