The society has this strange idea that the only way to succeed is to attend school after graduation. Although it is true for several professions, higher education is not for all. And the choice of a less traditional route
I was one of those people who decided to follow non-traditional career paths, one of which, according to many, was not a "safe" route. I wanted to be a professional artist and a writer, and I sincerely believed that school wouldn't help me get close to my dream. In fact, I feel safer and more in managing my destiny, making the opposite of what most people think is a protected option"I knew what I wanted to do, even though everyone told me it was impossible."
It is very important for me to discover your pasties and follow them. A lot of people just go to college because they think it's the right move, but they don't really know what they want from it, or what they want to do for the rest of their lives. There are even alumni who can still be insecure in their careers, and that's perfectly normal. But that's not how I wanted to do it, because I knew what I wanted to do, even though everyone told me it was impossible
So I felt that I took the bull by the horns and found strength to create my own destiny. My own luck, most likely. I knew that if I made enough doors, something good would come from her. Hands down, that was the hardest decision I've ever made in my life. I've been rejected more times than most people will ever be in their lives. I called the police because I looked suspicious, walking around the city with a guitar Aceh. I would often find myself sitting on the pointer, no matter whether I should quit my job and give society an idea of success: going to high school. Instead I pushed and went on, and I am so glad that at the end of August, I knocked on the door on the right. It was the door of my current music manager, who helped me sign my first deal
It definitely took some time to figure out what I wanted in life, but twice thinking about going to school, I was very helpful. Visiting a university or college is logical for many who want careers in professional and technical fields, but not necessarily for all dreams. This, of course, was not mandatory for mine
So how do you make the right choice for yourself, exactly? Decide what you want to do and then run it. Perform an action. Each action generates a response. Nothing is done, nothing will happen. For some people, going to school can be a great tool to help them achieve their dreams, but that makes sense. Each has its own path to its own success, but you are largely governed by where you will go and where you want to be. The goal is just to do it! If your dream is to be a dentist, then yes, it is necessary to do it at school. But if you want to be the next big entrepreneor, or start, the school does not necessarily help you achieve this success. It's definitely an option, but it's not always a requirement" A visit to a university or college is logical for many who want a career in professional and technical fields, but not necessarily for all dreams. This, of course, was not mandatory for mine. "
In any case, my road to finding my passion and the challenge of life was not easy. Although I could go to the university, like my other friends, and the way I work with the 9th corporate job, I knew it wouldn't make me happy. When I learned that I didn' t have a job and I wasn't going to school, the producer gave me this memorable quote: "There's a saying in the music industry that if you have something that needs to be returned, you will do it." So chase your dreams. Do something to make sure you don't get embarrassed. Risks. You don't meet public standards just because you think it's the only way to go. That's it
