Back in the day when i was telling my friends that i quit from college, i realized that right from that moment i basically tell the worlds that i am taking back my control.
More than 8 months have been passed, and here i am. I thought the worse that maybe the world will forget about me. As far as i can see, it did happened. At least, in my own opinion. But then i realized that there are certain point in life when people remembers you, whether they in need or for another reason.
As for me, i felt a little bit happy knowing that some people out there still remember me at least when they need something that i’m good at. And it’s turned out to be a good thing. Couple days ago, i was invited to an event which allows me to meet so called old friends.
All i can think about is how’s their condition and what is their vision for their own future. As you may already know, i choose my own path and i feel good about it. And because of that, i was able to go to somewhere that i never even think about before.
Now i’m talking with my friends and i realized that most of them still being controlled by the world that they living. They have no idea about what will they become in the future or at least what they want to become in the future. They still play by the rule, not knowing how its getting harder it is to become someone that they want each and everyday.
Maybe, you’re in the similar situation. And if you do, let me tell you something. You are special. You have something that you really good at. Do what you have to do, live the world at the fullest. Become whatever you want to become, and don’t be afraid of it.
The common fear of most people when they try to become what they really want is money situation. They afraid if they can’t make some money to keep alive if they force themselves to become what they want. The solution is simple. Be creative.
Nowadays, it’s possible to make money literally out of anything. Any kind of arts can be entertainment for someone, any kind of performance can be amusement for someone. Creative industry is growing up. You have to be afraid that in the future, any job that have the same routine everyday will be replaced by some smartass machine.
In fact, its already happened even if it’s in a small scale. For example, the usage of e-payment on some highway entrance. There’s no single person assisting you there but a machine that only allows you to pay with card. Imagine if that happens on supermarket.
You might get what i’m trying to say. And i’ll just sum it up with these words.
Don’t let the world controls you, let you control your own world. Be smart, be creative, be yourself.Awan.
