Nothing is Impossible
I’m incredibly blown away and deeply honoured to be featured in the latest edition of LMD — Sri Lanka’s premiere business magazine (pic below). This is such an incredible milestone in my career for two reasons…
First — this is a win for all of us little peoples striving for greatness and working hard towards it. I wouldn’t be in here if it wasn’t for your support — liking my posts, sharing my videos and turning up to my live events. I owe you all my success. THANK YOU!
Second — Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about what my dad used to say when I was growing up: “You are utterly useless. The way you are going, no one will ever pay any attention to you. It’s Impossible!” And technically he was right.
See the world that my dad grew up in, required academic excellence to achieve life fulfilment. BUT today we live in a very different world with an entirely new set of challenges. Luckily for me I had the courage to ignore his words and figure out a different path to achieve the same goal that he wanted. Sadly he never got to see it.
So to all the parents out there — if you’re kids aren’t academically gifted, please don’t get angry with them and deny them a close relationship with you. Teach them how to survive the world instead, because many roads lead to the same destination.
And maybe…just maybe…they might be Entrepreneurs. And when you see the world through the eyes of an Entrepreneur — NOTHING is impossible!
This one’s for you Thatha…I got there in the end.
