What’s ironic about my dream job is that I can only help people because I accumulated so much experience in the business world before becoming a writer. I thought that all those years were wasted, but they’ve turned out to be essential.
So my advice for anybody who hasn’t achieved his or her dream job is this: take courage, believe in yourself, take the leap, and don’t give up.
You’ve only got one life. Become the person you’re meant to be.
But don’t assume the time you’ve spent doing something else is time wasted. It’s all part of the plan.
In a media driven world we’re exposed to more and more snapshots of people’s lives in the attempt to bring interesting stories to people. The problem with those snapshots is their usually taken of people on the rise, or near the peak of their career.
James piece is a good reminder that our paths to the peak are all different but there is ALWAYS a path.
A U-Turn here and there.
Just keep moving.
