2016 has been an incredibly turbulent year. We have seen a rise in nationalism in many countries in Europe and a civil war in Syria that has caused the deaths of over 400,000 people, many of them children.

In particular two events have created thousands of pages of headlines, namely Brexit and Donald Trump being elected as the next President of the United States. Both events were not predicted by pollsters and revealed how frustrated many people were underneath the surface with the current political and business status quo.

Neverthless, despite the pain and suffering we have witnessed this year, there are undoubtedly opportunities too. In particular, Brexit and the election of Donald Trump show us that the political and economic system is not working for many people who regard themselves as having missed out on the economic boom over the last 15 years. They are not seeing the fruits of the billions being made by corporate businesses. As a result, they are demanding change.

2016 has also seen a number of legends pass, many before their time. This included David Bowie, Prince, Carrie Fisher and George Michael. They are gone but not forgotten.

About the Author:

I am passionate about fulfilling my potential in life and helping others to do the same, so that we can all make a difference to society. I've learnt that fulfilment comes from pursuing a goal that is greater than my own ambitions and having a real purpose. I originally qualified as a Chartered Accountant but it was helping people through entrepreneurship and career development, rather than doing the numbers when I really came started to enjoy myself. I have found that we aren't taught as youngsters how to deal with challenging life situations and so there are many people that on the "outside" are fine, but "inside" really struggle.
