Once a while everyone makes a mistake and they aren’t taken so seriously. Committing a mistake is no big crime of itself. But what if you are staying away from your family, take a risk that many would fear to take, by quitting a job that many would dream about, ignore the luxury side of life for few years, try to get into a new career where success isn’t an easy one. Sounds like a crime? Of course, for the society it is. This is more of a Tug-of-war between your dreams and the society pressure. There is no thumb rule that at 26 one needs to get married or look for a secured job. No mandate that one should always choose the highest paying job. But the Indian society would say so.
At 26, the age where your future looks dark & scary, Make no Mistake, hear no advice from people who achieved nothing, listen to your heart. Plan your future with the right goal set. And most importantly GO FOR IT. At 26, you are still young and Hot. A few bad jobs don’t end your career. A few bad days doesn’t spoil your entire year. A few failures don’t leave you down forever. A breakup doesn’t leave you a bachelor forever. A few fights with friends and family doesn’t make you a criminal. The past never had opportunities like today and it’s going to hold true even in the future. We are living in a world where a 16-year-old builds a start-up and raises fund for the same. Things hasn’t got easier just the opportunities had opened for everyone.
At the end, Make No mistake at the age where you can live your dream, travel to places, risk your secured job for an idea you got, give it a shot. Because you can manage another job with your skill but you can never get your age & opportunity back. Most people regret not taking a risk at the right age and end up living a life that’s far from the one they dream about. It’s time that we break the barriers and society concern and live a life that we always wanted. This would ultimately make us happy and our closed ones proud at some point in the future. Let’s not aim for mere survival, lets aim for prosperity by living our dreams.
