Rajiv is working as a Deputy Manager at a reputed event management company. He is earning his salary in 6 digits & today its safe to say that he is financially stable. Sounds like a dream job, isn’t it? Well it could be for some of us but not for him. Rajiv has always been passionate about singing.
He sang every year at the annual function in his college & also had been singing for his friends & family since he was 5. But, when it came to choose a career for himself, he chose MBA. Why do you think he did that?
Now that’s a question I want to ask each & everyone of you who is stuck in a wrong profession. Just because he or she could not find proper guidance or correct exposure or even good returns in what they were really passionate about, they chose to be a part of the herd. In our country, there is a lot of social pressure built on us right from the time we enter school. Everything we do in our lives is being compared with others.
People end up choosing a career which they are not very well versed with but they still went ahead with it due to this blind race that they are made part of.
Raj kumar Hirani made an excellent attempt in “3 Idiots” to show us what is the difference between running behind “success” & achieving “excellence” in something.
Follow your dreams. If you have a talent, don’t waste it. Excel in what YOU think you are good at & not what others force upon you. Having said that, Im not saying that if you chose the wrong career then there is no way to go back & you are stuck forever. No. There’s never too late to do what YOU truly believe in.
Take some time out from your daily routine to follow your dreams. Take that 1st step towards it & I’m sure there won’t be any looking back. It could be anything. From singing to painting. From acting to adventure sports. From dancing to story writing. From learning martial arts to learn how to play a guitar. No matter what it is, as long as YOU want it to happen, it will happen. I might sound a bit melodramatic at this time. But I would call it being “Melo-Dreamatic”.
Live your dreams. Follow them & achieve them. That’s the thought I will leave you guys with.
