It has been a year since I posted on this blog. The past year has been better than the previous year and although I may not be exactly where I want to be, the skills and lessons I have learnt will definitely bring me closer to turning my dreams into reality in 2014.
Here are 3 things that I learnt through this year:
-Play with the cards you are dealt with and do it with a smile.
-The job or situation you hate will develop skills within you that will only help you. So keep going.
-Do not get comfortable with anything. Always seek to improve on your situation.
As I reflect on those 3 things, one thing that I have noticed with myself and the close and ambitious friends I have around me, is that we are on the edge at the moment. We can either go right or left. Right is the path where the rest of our generation is walking; it is comfortable, it has strict rules, it will keep you financially safe for life. Left is the path where few walk; it is dark, the only thing you can see are your next 2 steps, there is no comfort, there is only survival and the only light you have is the light you share with the world.
The left path will be the underlying theme of this year. It is the path to walk on if you fear mediocrity. It is time to enjoy comfort in discomfort.
Have a risky new year!
