Why do some people get a promotion while others get made redundant?
Hi, I'm Alex Shoolman.
Hundreds of thousands of people from over 150 countries have read my material and improved their finances, technical abilities and lives for the better.
So why DO some people get promotions while others get made redundant?
Why are they happier, less stressed and more successful too?
Most just shrug it off and assume it's luck even though we know it's not.
Some claim it's totally unfair and try to argue about it but usually it's never under our control.
Maybe the entire industry is in decline or the company just can't compete with other businesses that offer cheaper and better products.
It's not how smart they are as there's a lot of very intelligent people out there that still get made redundant.
So why do some people with ordinary intelligence that work just as hard as everyone else get promotions, move up the chain quicker and end up richer than everyone else?
When I was starting University many years ago I always knew I wanted to do something in Science or Engineering. While I ended up doing both, I still had to choose what field I would go into. I'd listen to all the advice from teachers and my parents but it didn't help. There were too many choices, too many options and I didn't have any real idea about what each field was really like.
The more I tried to investigate the harder and more complex it became.
It wasn't just that decision either, later on in life after completing my degrees and even getting a job I still questioned what I wanted to do with my career and life. I'd read posts on how to "find your passion" or discover your true calling - whatever the hell that means.
But let's be honest.
Even if you are one of the lucky few and honestly know what your dream job is, technology and automation is moving so quickly these days that it's very difficult to maintain a stable career without being made redundant.
Even if you are super hard working, intelligent and dedicated it can all mean nothing if your business or entire industry is rocked by one of the many disruptions that have already taken place over the past few decades.
It didn't matter how amazing you were at running a Blockbuster store... they're gone now.
You could have been the best Project Manager at Nokia... but they're now a sliver of what they once were.
Even entire industries like Hotel Accommodation or the mighty Taxi industry have felt the harsh realities of what a slick App like Airbnb or Uber can do and let's not even get started on workers in the Coal Industry.
The fact is talent, intelligence and luck do make a difference but for most people there's a key part missing.
How Do You Predict The Future?
How can you ensure that the job you have, the company you're working at won't all of a sudden be rocked by a fancy new App or amazing technology that changes everything overnight?
I wanted to know so that I could stop worrying about how secure my job was. The thought of being completely blindsided and having to start all over again because some new invention made my position redundant terrified me!
I'd worked hard to get to where I was. Thinking about loosing my job made my stomach nauseous.
So I researched all the current and potential future technologies out there. I read book after book on Genetics, Drones, Cryptocurrency, Electric Vehicles, Self-Driving Cars, Rockets, Smartphones, Cloud Systems, Internet development and proliferation, Smart Homes and even taught myself from scratch how to build Convolutional Neural Networks to really understand Machine Learning and AI. I then started to look at what the people that were continued to be employed long term where doing.
And what I found out surprised me.
Some people were positive that their job was secure but it turned out they were OBLIVIOUS!
They'd say things like "Oh a computer could never do MY job!" and laugh it off, even though their job was already being replaced by machines in other companies at that time!
Others simply got angry and cried out for the government to "do something about it" like when Uber plunged the value of Taxi licenses by over half, wiping out peoples retirement funds they'd been working on for decades.
Entire industries would time and time again try and fight to delay the huge disruptions only to loose and be devastated a few years later. Industries that produce Music, Phones, TV Shows and Movies, Newspapers and more.
If multi-billion dollar companies like Kodak or Nokia fought and failed miserably to fend off changes in technology what hope could any of us have!?
I'd like to share two colossal realisations that totally took me by surprise.
Colossal Realisation #1: People Have No Idea What Robots Are Or That They're Already Here
We all know what a robot is right?
They're the humanoid machines from the future like Star Trek's Data or the Terminator! They're all socially awkward, can't replicate human feelings and desperately want to become like us (or kill us).
When anyone suggests that a robot or machine could do our job we get very defensive.
We know that the technology to do our job isn't available yet so our job must be secure.
You're basically saying "I'm too important and smart plus it's something for future me to worry about". Then you promptly forget about it because it's unsettling to know that the dreaded "automation" is staring you down.
Top performers - the ones that continue to have stable employment throughout industry level disruptions - don't dismiss technology so easily. They have the tools and knowledge to know when significant disruption is coming and a plan in place to avoid it before it threatens their job.
They also respect automation and take it's threat very seriously because they know it's not something that will happen in the future, it's something that has been ongoing now for decades.
They also know that you cannot stop automation or technology from disrupting your job, you can only at best hope to slow it down.
Colossal Realisation #2: No One Has A Silver Bullet Solution For This HUGE Problem
When I first started researching I was sure that there was an easy fix for this problem given how huge it is. If it's been affecting millions of people for decades surely there's a way to fix it right?
I kept reading technology overviews that described a future of huge job losses, millions being unemployable and rich people getting even richer as their profits soared. Throughout all of it they were happy to foretell of an apocalyptic future where 80% of the workforce is unemployed... but none came up with anything that could fix it besides huge welfare handouts. It turned out though that I was looking for a silver bullet to the solution.
This is a very common thing that most people do. They try and find the "quick tip" or "life hack" that can solve all their problems in one foul swoop.
But this way of thinking ignores the facts.
People and Businesses will do what's best for them and only them. We cannot rely on a company an industry or even the government to fix this for us. This is your career and main income source we're talking about! Without it life becomes dreadfully difficult and it can be impossible to recover from something like your entire industry being made irrelevant.
The worst part is that we know this future is coming!
Deep down for the ones that know about the technology and can see the progress machines are making they know that what these futurists are telling us is almost certainly true!
We know machines have replaced factory workers. We know robots are being built now with better and better capabilities. We know AI is getting more and more advanced and that it's just a matter of time but without a silver bullet to fix all our problems we ignore it.
It's not that we don't think it's a serious problem it's that we're helpless on how to fix it.
Do you really want to be stressed about having your job taken by a machine for the rest of your life?
Do you really want to get called into the office one day and be told you're no longer needed because they bought some software that can do your job 10x faster and more accurately?
What if instead you had a strategy that meant you'd never face something like that? A way to stay up to date with all the potential technology that blindsides companies and industries and be able to use it to not just stay employed in the future, but have a higher chance of getting promotions and becoming richer too.
THE SOLUTION: Top Performers Know How To Stay One Step Ahead Of Everybody
After studying all the new technologies, how each of them works, the current stages they're in as well as many other factors such as how much of an impact they'll make or which jobs are most likely to be disrupted I went even further.
I created a map outlining when each of the technologies might reasonably come online and how they might interact with one another to produce other major disruptions.
Some of the biggest disruptions haven't come from the new technology, but the combination of a new technology with already well established ones.
As an example of this, imagine a company like Uber trying to do what it has done if mobile phones with GPS in them wasn't as common as it is today. It just wouldn't have been possible and the whole idea wouldn't have worked or disrupted the taxi industry.
After all this investigation I now want to share with you how top performers monitor the huge array of technology that's out there and then break it down so they can see whether or not it will be an issue in the future.
Other people stick their heads in the sand, dismiss technologies progress and assume that it won't affect them ever.
Top performers continuously know if there's any technologies that might threaten their job and can even use this information to help their own business or impress the boss at work.
They know that if they just sit around and pretend like it's not a huge issue that one day they'll get a call from the boss asking them to "have a chat" in the office where they make everyone redundant.
They know how to use the disruptions to their own advantage and stay one step ahead of everybody else.
I want to teach that to you too, so you can stop being stressed and worried. So you can be the one that gets a better job instead of being made redundant and so you end up living a happier, healthier and richer life.
A Simple Strategy To Always Staying Employed
I believe that using technology and putting effort into the right things can help change a person's life forever, leading them to live a richer, healthier and happier life. For many though, the future has a lot of uncertainty in it with the unavoidable reality that many will lose their job to automation.
If this course helps you to avoid a lost job, it will have paid for itself 1,000 times over.
Using a simple four part strategy I teach how to discover these new technologies and figure out if your job is going to be disrupted very early on. I demonstrate in multiple different examples how to use this strategy to always have a fantastic and secure job for the future. No matter what career you're in, no matter how much experience you have, no matter what job you're looking for.
That way you can continue to stay employed as the world develops around you, growing richer and staying happier for longer.

A Final Note
How often have you seen other people succeed?
We see others get the promotion... while we struggle.
We see exciting new technologies that everyone else is involved in.
We get worried about our jobs any time the company has a "restructuring".
Worst of all most people have no idea how to identify, let alone deal with a true threat from automation or robotics when it comes to their day job. Everyone "knows" it's a problem but what do you do about it?
Most people either ignore the problem or worse, become incredibly bitter and negative. They fight their company and resist the changes which ends up creating a self fulfilling prophecy where they get fired!
How many times have you seen coworkers get made redundant or let go due to restructures, not enough work or other reasons which could easily be traced back to automation or a declining industry due to disruption?
Now imagine your own life 10-20 years in the future.
What happens if you don't do anything differently? Will your industry get torn apart by a new App, a new revolution, a new combination of existing technologies? Maybe you sense that's already happening now...
You don't have to live with that stress and fear everyday. I've gone through the process of mapping out these up and coming industries and how they can help you live a happier life in a more successful career.
These aren't throw away tricks or news articles either. This strategy and the surrounding material can be used for life. Whether it's to improve your career now or help you again in 10 years time, you have access to all the videos and content forever.
So do you think it's wise to continue to wait?
Next year could be too late... disruption moves fast!
