In this day & age, when jobs are hard to come by, and personal ventures require capital, so many of us are settling for mediocre.I can’t help but ask what happened to the fiery generation I knew at Varsity…the generation who were going to change the world??
“If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs.” Dhirubhai Ambani
Oh, I know, that’s for later in life…..for when you are grown up and start doing ‘grown up’ stuff. (I got tired of hearing myself saying these things all the time).
The secret, however, is that ‘later in life’ often happens too late…and by that stage you are often wanting to be at home with the kids, or you stuck in a job you don’t exactly love, but a lifestyle that is totally funded by this job and thus presenting you with a real dilemma.
- You started focusing your energy on those few things that you are really good at, NOW? Those few things that make you truly feel ALIVE!!!
- You started spending an hour, weekly, devoted to playing around with ideas revolving around your passions. Passions that could birth your dream career.
- You let yourself off the hook for just a minute, an hour, and said, “It’s ok to dream…”?
Jim Rohn said, ‘If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary”. I’m tired of ordinary…aren’t you???
It’s never too late, or too early, to start embracing your dream career..or at least to start planning it!!!
