In today’s modern, Leverage is happening everywhere. Most of us know about the leverage, but we never know how to put the leverage in the right use. The right use of leverage can make you be wealthier or it can make you more poor. It’s perilous if you don’t know what you are doing when using the leverage. In this blog, I’m going to talk about the power of leverage. So, what is leverage?
What is Leverage? Why We Should Use Leverage?
Leverage is power and they can be happened anywhere when load, fulcrum and force is exist. In finance, the leverage is a technique that amplifies investor profits or losses. We commonly used to lend money to achieve to magnify profit potential for you to grow faster.
The reason human are better than animals because human know to use leverage but animals don’t. In beginning animals are better than humans, but with good use of leverage, we can fly higher than birds, moves faster than animals. In our daily life, we use the leverage on the bicycle, motorbike, cars, trains, airplane and many transportation tools as a leverage tool. Today’s, we use the computer and internet to communicating, shopping, running business and many more. It could saved us a tons of time and money with lesser effort and cost.
However, there are some disadvantage of using leverage. If you are using leverage for borrow money to magnify your profit, it may also potential scale of your loss. Too much leverage can be bad, it may easily get you into bankruptcy because the losses can exceed your deposit. When you use the leverage tool, you are responsible to know what you’re doing when using it.

Eg: Exercise Consistency, Eating Health Food.
When you in good health, you saved the time to visit the doctor, suffering in disease, time to recovery, money and many more. So, you can have a better body condition to concentrate on the important thing. In the beginning it may consume your energy, but in the long run it’s a good leverage that worth a lot more than you invested.

The Future of Leverage
But in nearly this 5 years, I believe the OPD(Other People’s Data) and OPAI(Other People’s Artificial Intelligence) will be the trends or future leveraging tool. We are not going to create own data and artificial tools, but we will utilize what in the market and other people’s have to leverage it and helping our business.
