I still remember I was 15 years old, full of enthusiasm, dreams and ambitions when I encountered the first experience with this guy. People referred to him as a Motivational speaker. His energy, his optimism and his confidence in me, I can never forget. He kept repeating that we all have the power and the potential to change the world. We all are blessed with a gift. All one has to do is find it. The belief he showed in me, and the lessons he taught me, I never thought would have such a profound impact on my life!
Fast Forward… Days went by and I got lost. The ambitious kid who dreamed big started turning into ordinary. The mediocre one. One like many in the crowd, following the same monotonous routine, going to school, passing out from college and then came the BIG DECISION.
What career will I be pursuing? That’s no tough decision. We have a few options which most of us pick. And you are gonna do the same. And without my consent, I was pushed onto that track.
“You are too young to decide…” OR “We know better” were the statements I got from elders when they ignored my passions not taking into account what I enjoyed and how that is the main factor for you to excel.
Time kept flying and I kept adjusting. I worked hard but could never excel because I never loved what I do. I graduated and got a job and spent 3 years asking myself, should I waste this beautiful gift called life by following a path that wasn’t meant for me or achieve happiness and contentment by following the true reason for my being.
A sound whispered “you know the answer” and I realized this was the sound of the same 15-year-old me whom I had lost along the way. The 15-year-old me who did believe he could change the world.
That was the turning point when I took a leap of faith and decided to walk on the road less travelled. The path where your passion guides you.
