Few hours ago, I was invited to a meeting about an opportunity, that “might yield some business”. The more I listened about this meeting, the more I realized that it would be a waste of my time. You see, some time ago, I started a business, since I was unable to finish my studies and get a job in the area which I loved. So, I gathered people, brought ideas to the table, did few events and organized activities and it went great….for few months. The ideas were still there, but the fire [that is crucial for a self-employed person] was loosing its spark.
I returned to my previous passion, which had nothing to do with this business, and planned how to finish what I loved and get on top of my field at the same time. So far, so good.
But sometimes, people doubt my abilities and my willingness to finish what I’ve started. I understand that, I did stop before. But my point is, I stopped, I tried something completely different and realized what I love! I realized that I was completely in-love with my “ex”!
There is nothing wrong with trying something and realizing that it is not for you! It is wrong if you just sit around and wait for something to happen to you. It’s wrong if you do not try! If you just fall and do not get back up. You don’t have to force yourself to doing something that you repeatedly do not enjoy! Actually, it’s not that you do not have to, but you should not and must not force yourself to something you hate!
Try things you enjoy, see if you can enjoy that your entire life and dedicate your time and energy to that. But if you don’t feel that you can produce art every day of your life, or design cars, or proof-read texts, then by all means- DON’T DO IT! But do try other things and don’t stop until you are certain of your choices.
So swim into the business and try it out. It’s not a bad thing if you do not find yourself in that particular river. It’s wrong if you don’t find your own river that can lead you to the perfect sea.
