Since I was a small child, I studied hard to get good grades. I didn’t really know why but I knew I had to do it…..
My job wasn’t my passion, but it paid me a decent salary and provided for my family, so I continued like a zombie. Day after day. Month after month.
Each time I heard that someone left his job to pursue his passion of helping others, I would secretly wish to do the same. But I didn’t DARE to. My family was counting on me to bring home the bacon. My job provided a monthly stream of income and I was the sole breadwinner. I felt comfortable and secure.
As much as I realized helping others is my passion, I ignored the voice within. Whenever the voice spoke, my mind questioned “What if my business didn’t take off?”, “What if I ended up becoming bankrupt and a burden to my family?” Many, many “what-ifs”. So I continued the corporate march.
Then in late 2013, I was let go….
I wish I could tell you a fairy tale ending,
But I didn’t give up.
Fast forward to present day, and I’ve now trained hundreds of professionals, business owners, managers and students from various industries and nationalities on Personal Branding, Sales, Motivation and Influential Leadership. I still have much to learn and improve, and sometimes I still experience rejections and disappointments. But I am now living my dream, which is more than what I could say a few years ago.
Each time someone expresses gratitude for inspiring them and teaching them new skills, I feel recharged. What happened in late 2013 was sad and shocking, but in retrospect, it was a blessing in disguise. Without that fateful event, I would not be on this new and exciting journey to fulfill my destiny and to make a difference in the world.
It is not a coincidence that you are reading my story. You too have a life purpose and a dream to fulfill. And my mission is to help you achieve your dream earlier rather than later.
