Albert Einstein once said, “Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts.”
I saw this quote today while casually browsing online, as you do, and on days like this I really needed some inspiration from the internet. Like many people who have just graduated, I imagined myself to have already figured out my life and know exactly what I want. And guess what, I don’t!
Sometimes I feel so lost in the many possibilities out there, but that’s what so great at the same time. There are many opportunities and options out there for you to try. I read that people change careers 10 – 12 times in their lifetime. That sounds crazy, but it’s also true in this day and age that people rarely stick to the same job in the same company. Heck, many people don’t even work in the same field as their university degree.
While you might still be in school or in a different stage of life, we all get into ruts like this, but we have to stop doubting ourselves. We might not get the highest marks in our class or we might not know all the answers, but if we have a dream or goal that we keep working on, we will get there.
Life is full of surprises. I didn’t know that I would have gone bungee jumping or skydiving or both when I started this internship with INTERNeX. But, I did. It’s time to stop worrying; life is about taking risk and following our hearts.
