Taking a risk can often be very scary. However, if you don’t push through your fears and circumstances, you may never know the outcome.
The other day while out and about, I was asked by a very prestigious individual, what it was that I do for a living. This individual is well known in the European community for their outstanding works and service. They are also of a different culture, race, socioeconomic background, and belief. Me knowing this, I automatically became nervous and almost swallowed my tongue. As I instantly felt that what I do for a living, would not matter to them.
News flash! About one second after she asked, I remembered, that I only have one shot to make a good impression, so I answered her. Little did I know, that she, along with others in the room would take such a liking to my boldness, charisma and passion.
As a result, I am now on a new journey to fulfill my ultimate passion in life.
Lesson: Never discredit who you are, where you’ve been and where you would like to go. Ears are always listening. So, go and take that risk.
