I have been at crossroads a lot of times in my life. I got cold feet and I was not even able to make a move. The last time I was at one, I decided to end this drama forever. I wanted to stop controlling my future. And start living my dreams. Once I started doing this, I discovered the following amazing things
1.Fear of future was gone:
My mind was never at peace before. I was always worried.
“What if I did not get through the exam?”
“What if I don’t get my dream job?”
“What if I can’t work on good projects?”
I don’t have to worry about what I can’t control anymore. I love writing. I write. No one can stop me from this. It is so relieving.
2.I stopped feeling inferior:
Friend 1: “I earn 17 lpa”
Friend 2: “I earn 23 lpa”
Previously I used to feel low that I hardly make any money. But now, I know that my path is different. A meaningful job is what matters. Not just the pay.
3.I enjoy my day:
I am not running after deadlines. I am not waiting for Friday. I enjoy today. Because I am doing what I love.
4.I don’t need motivation:
My routines are in place. I work on an auto-pilot mode. I don’t have to push myself to exercise daily. I do my habits because I love the reward they give me.
5.I feel smarter:
The work I do pushes me into an introspection mode. My time is not spent in feeling stressed but in reflecting on my life. I feel the smarter than I was ever before.
6.I became proactive
I don’t leave my future to destiny. I expect problems beforehand and take preventive measures.
7.I feel more responsible
I don’t blame what went wrong on my surroundings. I feel responsible for the life I lead.
8.I found my mentor
Mentors come to those who work on their dreams. When they see potential, they want to catalyze the growth.
9.I don’t feel overwhelmed by success or failure
I work for the satisfaction of it. If others like my work, I am happy with it. If they don’t like, even then I am okay with it. I don’t have to impress others. I need to feel good about what I do.
10.I started feeling out of place
I no longer fit into a peer group. When my friends complain about various petty things of their life, I know that the solution to all those is really simple. My life path felt totally different from theirs.
11.Normal things are no longer a priority
My mother always screams at me that I don’t care about the things which she considers important. I don’t find them important than my writing.
12.I don’t have time to complain
I now know that half the problems can be solved in the time spent on complaining.
13.People started admiring me
It is not the reason why I work on my dreams. But when you see someone doing something which you are not, you automatically start admiring them.
14.I feel more contended
Above all, I go to sleep with a peaceful mind that day has been spent well.
