I am going to be telling you about one of the worst moment I have in my life which happened over 10 years ago. It was the day where I received a letter from the government official. It stated that I fail to fulfill the requirement of my scholarship and that I have to pay them back every dollar that was ever funded throughout my course. Which was RM120,000, a money which my parents didn’t have and of course, I did not have? On top of that, because of my poor results, none of the companies out there wanted to hire me. Hence to date, this was one of my bad college decision I made. I was left with a huge burden financially.
It was a turning point for me that it made me who am I today
But looking back at retrospect, 10 years later, that day turned out to be one of the best moment I have in my life. It was a turning point for me that it made me who am I today. So, here is the thing, I remember thinking that it was the end of it all. But today I would not trade that day for anything else. It was a moment that allowed me to have the drive and the hunger to want more. In this journey where I was redeeming myself by working late at nights, I discover my first online business.
If I did not make this bad college decision, chances are I would have gotten this really great job offer right after completing my degree in some big fancy investment bank that pays well. I would have gotten a more comfortable life but I would not be able to achieve what I have accomplished today.
What I am trying to say is, mistakes are inevitable. In fact, life would be incomplete without them. We should value all the mistakes we make in life. So don’t allow your struggles, your circumstances, and your challenges that you are experiencing right now dictate what the future holds for you. Because at the end of the day, your future is purely based on the decisions and the actions that you have taken that made you, you.
So…Who are you today? I’d love to hear about it!
