While we don’t know for certain what the future will bring, some individuals have developed an impressive skill set of prescience and acumen. While most go through life in a reactionary state, others help shape the future by studying past events—specifically the conditions that laid their groundwork. By thinking of time as circular rather than linear, one can use the lessons of the past to help unfold the future as though it were a historical map. For those with a disciplined mind, a creative imagination, and an unshakeable resolve, the future is clear.
