My path, probably, is not that unique.
They said I have to go to college and get my wooden framed diploma, to be worth something.
I did exactly that, learning things from 100-years old professors, who’ve never worked a day in my fast-pacing field.
Many people don’t pay enough attention to technological advancements; so, they wrap themselves in debts in exchange for an outdated education.
I might be much better off with books, blog posts and videos from real makers.
Then they said I have to get a job in a fancy place, where people gossip all the time near the water cooler.
I did precisely that and spent the next ten year working my tail off. 12-14 hours per day. No vacations. Ever.
To please the unpleasable.
They also said I have to get married and be a good wife: work, cook, clean, care.
I did all that. Everything that society expects me to do.
It brought me to a very whimsy place.
Cluttered with things I was relentlessly purchasing to feel happier.
Completely burnt out.
Let go by the boss.
Lost all my savings in an attempt to support the business venture of my ex-husband.
Support, that’s what good wifies are supposed to give, right?
But rather than cry that life wasn’t fair, I took it as a positive turn.
I start reading a lot. Probably two, three hundreds of self-help books, hundreds of thousands of self-help videos.
Three of them have completely changed me and my way of thinking.
For a month I was doing mental experiments while reading Pam Grout’s E-Squared, trying to make my peace with the fact that thought becomes a reality.
I was breaking a habit of being myself with the help of Dr.Joe Dispenza. I was figuring out why I think the way I think and that helped me to shift my mental patterns. I never looked back.
I got mesmerized by the beauty of brain inner working and neuroscience.
Then I stumbled upon Brain. The story of you, by David Eagleman and got completely blown away. I was a master of my reality. And it wasn’t another marketing mambo jumbo.
I wish someone told me about those books earlier…
But sooner or later I finally was able to take control of my life.
I was completely free.
I focus on what I can control.
If you’re not satisfied with where you are, then reach higher.
I could’ve wasted the next couple of years pursuing a career, building another family.
Instead, I became a writer. And a traveler. I do only things I love.
On my way, I figured, that creating value for others has never been as easy. And that’s exactly what I want to do in all my ventures.
