I am lost in 20’s. I followed a wrong career, not because I didn’t know what I wanted. I wanted to become a doctor since primary school. In high school I became more specific about my dream, I wanted to become a medical doctor.
I use to call myself MD. The reality of life striked I never made it. Boom! I found myself on the wrong career. I’ve forgotten about being an MD now. What I have noticed from my dead dream is that it was something that could have gave me an identity and could have change my whole life. Just as the conversation that changed Jeff’s life “Jeff , you don’t have to want to be a writer. You are a writer. You just have to write.”
MD dream died. I am on wrong career. I decided to carry on with it because, number one life don’t give us what we want but what we work for and two I have been programmed to get a good job with high pay check, I have discovered this from Robert Kiyosaki on his book ” how to choose your personal success”
From this book “how to choose your personal success” I have another perspective on how to persue your personal success without chasing a wrong thing. I have decided to listen to my life as Parker Palmer said “Before I can tell my life what I want to do with it, I have to listen to my life telling me who I am”.
As my way of listening to life I have decided to be a student for people who are passionate about what they are doing just to enlighten my spark. According to someone who have made it in life Jeff Goins he emphasise that chasing your dream is not a process you can plan. But it is something you can be very intentional about.
