I found my inspiration today from my recently graduated, 24 year old nephew’s, facebook page. His words inspired me because many of us will hit walls somewhere in our lives; whether it’s during study or later in our careers and the key often lies in finding what we are truly passionate about; what we love doing. If you’re motivated after reading my nephew’s inspirational words, I would encourage you to read a blog that I posted a few months ago, ‘Find your passion and accelerate your career’; it may help you to structure your thoughts and offer you some guidance.
“The greats weren’t great because at birth they could paint. The greats were great, cause they paint a lot.
🎓 My Uni story does not begin well. I started straight out of high school because I thought it was the right thing to do. I tried marketing and hospitality management, failing exam and missing lectures. No effort I put in got any return. I was in a negative state of mind. I went to my parents one night to tell them I was going to drop out, I was not happy.
Adolescent late weeknight hang outs gave me the chance to listen to one of my best mates tell stories from his day at work. He chose to do a year working full time for a property company in the hills. His stories captivated and intrigued me. My interest stemmed to study, then to distinctions, then to mentoring other students within the course and now working. I’m so grateful for my family and friends who were there for me through the hard times and the good times, the lecturers who dropped some heavy knowledge, lecturer and role model, Dr. Pham, who got my foot in the door and my property brother, John, for starting it all.
Congrats to everyone who pushed through and graduated. It’s not smart to be dumb.”
