As we come to the end of 2016, we will ever remember this year as the year of the underdogs marked by the failure of the so call experts, incumbent governments and elites to get anything right or succeed in convincing the general public in their prediction and politics.
Here are the 3 most remarkable events that will be remembered for generation to come and will change the future as we know it today.
- May 2016 – Leicester City win English Premier League trophy
Leicester City’s 2016 Premier League triumph was one of the biggest shocks in sporting history. They were able to come from a betting odd of 5000 to 1 in the beginning of last season to win, surprising even themselves. They were relatively unknown, the underdogs that no team they played or anyone that knows football took serious until it was too late. They had the believe when no one did, the system that everyone taught was luck and the determination, energy and resilience that was beyond understanding. They were able to come up with an unpredictability that enable them to win with 10 points ahead of teams that are way ahead in finance, structure, systems etc.
2. June 2016 – Brexit: British Public Voted to leave the EU
Brexit was another event that will ever be remembered as it was a public revolt against the establishment. The underdogs going toe to toe with the high and mighty. The U.K. voted to leave the European Union generated a sense of shock after opinion polls suggested voters would reject a Brexit.
Stock markets in London and Europe sold off sharply as they opened, with British bank shares taking a particular hit. At one point, the pound hit its lowest level since the 1980s.
British Prime Minister David Cameron announced he will step down Friday morning, saying the negotiations for withdrawal from the EU should be carried out by a new leader. His replacement Teresa May was expected to be selected by October.
“The will of the people to leave the EU must be respected,” British Prime Minister David Cameron said in a statement Friday. “We must now prepare for a negotiation with the European Union.”
This will definitely shape the future of the UK, Europe and the world at large politically, socially and economically.
3. November 2016 – Donald Trump wins US Election
In the beginning of Trump campaign no one took him serious, we all taught it was a media promotion move to promote his business interest. Donald Trump’s transition from primary flame-thrower to general-election standard bearer was marked by controversy. He knew what no one knew or taught will never work, how to use present himself as the underdog and use the underdogs to defeat the establishment. This he did by using the very issues that regular politicians will never dream of using such as racism, feminism, protectionism, religion etc
As we enter into 2017 and beyond, the 3 above events in 2016 will forever change the world but lets us to forget that the common factor is that; “Never underestimate yourself talk of anyone else because doing so is to your own detriment“.
