Wow! Another year gone. Time to look back and wish you all a happy new year. And a special one it has been. 2011 was the year I launched my long awaited dream UNDSCVRD. And what a launch it was. Good times, bad times. 2 sides of the same medal. But the first year was an amazing experience and definitely got me hooked.
What made it such an amazing experience is not just the business success of it. What I love most is the independence of running your own business, creating your own universe (however small it may be) and all the amazing people you get to meet.
We are raised in school with the idea that we need to find a job, settle down, get a kid, get a mortgage and work hard for when you retire. Don’t get me wrong here, there’s nothing wrong with that if that makes you happy. This didn’t make me happy though. And now I know why.
So think about what will make you really happy. Jump out of bed in the morning. Work till early mornings with a smile on your face. Is your current job really doing that?
What I want to say here is that life is way too short to waste it doing something you don’t love. This love is what makes people do great things. So find out what you love, and find a way to make a living out of it. There are plenty of opportunities. You just need to seize them.
I did it last year. And if I can do it, so can you.
Happy new year everyone. Happy 2012!
