Invest in Yourself
Easier said then done. Fear is a crippling demon that you must get a hold of. I’ve always had a strange relationship with fear because my immigrant parents never fully recognized it as an emotion.
As two people who left their native country and blazed trails of their own, my parents are truly the “all-star American dreamers” who pulled themselves up by their boot straps for a slice of the pie. For that, I’m grateful. They both have semi traditional roles in the medical field and I’m now an active participant in corporate America.
It just doesn’t feel like enough. I’m slightly frustrated at where I am. I was recently reflecting on my career and aspiration and where I want to be verse my current path don’t lead me to the same destination. So I’m taking a leap of faith.
I know I cannot count on the economy nor my employer to guarantee my success nor happiness. And there’s something slightly cliché about chasing happiness, a fleeting and evolving emotion. However, chasing fulfillment is something I’m interested in. And entrepreneurship can fill a career void that I’ve always longed for.
