You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
This is my life. Everything that happened in my personal and career life makes more sense in the perspective of reflection. Many times in the midst of crises, triumph, joy and heartbreak, whatever is happening does not make sense or provide depth of meaning at the time. And then in one crazy moment, days, weeks, months, years later there is the insight and you see the lesson, you see the journey.
Eighteen years ago I ventured on an entrepreneurial journey, not with the popular purpose of wealth, but rather to start a journey which would bring happiness and fulfilment. The call was irresistible and the thresholds that needed crossing were brutal. The result so far is that I grew from strength to strength, learning from setbacks and failure, and sometimes having to take two steps back in order forge ahead by the one that supported my reason for being.
But what a journey it has been! And will be!
And it is mine.
