There’s thousands of jobs out there. Which of them do you think you want to do for the rest of your life?
I question that to myself all the damn time.
After watching Vivy Yusuf’s ‘Love Vivy’ series, I feel as motivated as ever. The same feeling most people get out of watching a good show/ documentary/ talk. You would just want to run the world the minute after, right? Like as though you got the essence of it, and you’re left with pressing the ‘Go’ button.
As much as you might know that I’m currently working into building my path into the design industry, let me tell you something. I’ve been envisioning myself owning and running my own business one day since young. I’ve even drafted a brief business plan before, but it stopped when I’m not sure on how to proceed on with the financial aspect.
Or, if you were my classmates back in Madrasah, you would have known that if you need any wedding invitations or arrangements, you know you have me to go to. That was what I want to be branded as at that age. Had I actually just go ahead, or ask for advice from my parents at least, I would have probably go along with my plans and own business at least by now.
What’s stopping me, then?
Now, there’s always this thing that stops me from sparkling. From owning what I have dreamt. From achieving beyond miles. I’ve always hesitated to click the ‘Go’ button. I doubted myself tons of times, and that resulted in set backs. Just do it. What’s worse that could have happened? A friend kept telling me that every single time I hesitated when it comes to job application. I’m just so scared of failure. I kept seeing it like a freaking dementor that will zap the heck out of my soul.
We can always bounce back up.
Consider the risk factors, and always have backup plans. Always. Treat failures as your leaps of faith. So what if you fail. Courage and confidence matter more than failures. We’re all so scared to know the weaknesses we might have or carry. It’s a human nature, to feel good all the time. To know we’re on flick, to portray only the good and be remembered with great impressions. And coming from a society where failures can be looked upon as a misery, we’re even more intimated to step close to that zone.
But trust me on this. The moment you bounce back up to your feet, you’d feel like the world is kissing your feet. You’ve just scored yourself entry passes to the next stage of your life. You’d understand how to manage similar situations you will face in the future. And you will also understand what life is.
Take them in, and manage. That’s how we grow. The more you repel, the more it goes back to you.
