Somewhere I have always been an advocate of understanding yourself fully first before committing yourself to a cause/entity/person for lifelong.
Some of us have been enlightened quite early with your purpose, your true passion to lead on that path very early on! Sachin Tendulkar, Lata Mangeshkar, AR Rahman are few names from India who prove the above line.
However, most of us are not so fortunate to be enlightened so early on & even if one is enlightened – one might not be fortunate to have everything from family support to circumstances fall into place for one to be extremely successful.
While for me individually, it was sports that formed my true calling & gave me a passion to follow – somewhere I lost on the opportunity to lead a life of a sportswoman. What I found from it is forever though & utilised in the current space to be a successful businesswoman with substance to offer.
I see the resilience, the zeal to do well every time I face a tough opponent, the never let go approach proving useful in my career as well.
This sports stint along with the theatre stint also told me that the age of 6-12 is the best phase to influence a kid positively so every parent should make effort to push their kid to explore his/her talents apart from daily curriculum.
While I was preparing for MBA, during my MBA & work life – I realised the importance of having a creative vent for my complete mental development & satisfaction hence I decided to take up photography which helped me get an extra eye & window to see things around differently.
Also, because of my career demands I was expected to be in the market, clients place very often so required to travel & adjust to different environments, people, culture very quickly. Somewhere when I did not use to do the exploration, I used to feel displaced – so I started travelling & exploring a lot of new places.
And of course, nothing is complete without the love of your family & friends.
These have been my significant dots that I connected for my future path’s success & glory. Same & many more enlightment to you all..
