The chickens have come to roost, as my grandfather used to say. The insane practices around bundling loans that never should have been made, along with our own greed, have led to a massive crisis internationally. I was first warned of this a year ago by some Australian investors but it’s still shocking to see how much damage can be done.
That said, crises are often a great opportunity for Hidden High Potentials. (And for Machiavellian personalities who use fear to gather more power: something to keep in mind.) You might be able to get something happening now when others can’t, because the world now needs people who can see past this current situation.
Paradoxically, those of you who have been living austerely will be able to move more than those who haven’t hit that wall yet.
It’s odd: during good times, people tend to look at high potentials as a threat. In a crisis, they turn to them for leadership. (I’ve written about this happening in a day-to-day way, too.)
What type of opportunities do you see?
