It took me a while – but I did realize few years ago as to why I am just an ordinary soul but not meant to be.
I have lived a selfish life through out. I did not look beyond my own selfish interest and material needs.
As they say, while humans are busy looking after themselves – God does look after you.
Whatever you may decide to call your life changing events, be it mid-career crisis, setbacks, redundancy – God gives you a wake up call. Life events are meant to shake you up.
Some people get it, most don’t.
I did brood over the series of setbacks for a long long time. ‘Why me?’ was the question I asked myself because I knew I was good at what I do.
I did not get God’s message.
He did not want me to spend all my life in a cubicle having team meetings and writing e-mails to people sitting next to me and pretend that I am going to change the world.
What will happen to me in future, I don’t know but I very well know I am not going to be satisfied in life with mediocrity.
Every setback made me stronger than ever. If I fail in another attempt, I will try again.
Nobody became an overnight success.
I believe in God – All that happened to me makes sense now. He has plans for me.
I got his wake up call.
