Hello my dear readers,
Sorry I haven’t blogged in such a long time. I haven’t been emotionally or physically well. But I’m somewhat back!? I will try to blog more consistently (perhaps at least a post a week?). 🙂
Today’s post is more like a rant.
I feel so sad, defeated, and hurt. I just really want to have a job that I am passionate about. I know money is important, but I don’t want to choose money over happiness.
Most people spend at least 1/3 of their lives working…doing something they hate. I don’t want to be like that. I want to feel like I’m doing something meaningful. But my parents are so unsupportive; especially my dad. It’s because this field is so unstable and risky. I never know when I’ll be paid –or if I’ll be paid. It really depends on whether I have clients and whether people trust me. But I don’t want that to stop me. I really want to pursue my dreams. I know most people will say it’s unrealistic and I should just accept reality and get a stable job, but it makes me so miserable. I don’t want to settle for something I don’t want.

Please watch the video before proceeding to my post. It’s 3 minutes long. I could not find the original on youtube but this one has the same content.
I was shown this video at an Entrepreneur business building event. At the beginning (about a minute into the video), I already knew it was going to be a “sad motivating” type of video.
Or I thought I knew.
I was wrong. I had no idea that the video would impact me so much. By the time I was half way through, I was no longer able to contain my emotions and the streams of tears from pouring down my face. I have never seen a video that has hit me so hard (no pun intended).
At first, when Derek fell down in agony, I felt sorry for him. In my mind, I was thinking, “Poor dude. He must be devastated. He probably trained for years to get this far. He might never have this opportunity again.”
I was sad, but I wasn’t moved.

This is my first blog post! I would like to dedicate this post to my friend, Karen Mak! Karen is an active blogger who loves to share her experiences with the world. She inspires me daily and encourages me to do the same. Hence, I have decided to create this blog to share my experiences and growth with all of you. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts! 🙂
Today I would like to talk about persistence. My definition of persistence is:
“Regardless of how many times I may fail, I’m not stopping until I reach my goal.”
Persistence is a very powerful force. It can allow us to achieve things that seemed impossible at the beginning. However, in order to be persistent in something, we have to have a purpose. There has to be a strong WHY. Why are you doing what you’re doing? How badly do you want it? What are you willing to endure?
