Don't Wish for it, Work for it

21 views • Oct 10th, 2020

Reaching here and to identify my dream was not an easy task. It took many failed attempts. Let’s go back in my college days ‘2011’ I started my carrier as a drawing teacher. I was just 16 years old when I started my business. And at that time my only dream was to be an independent women. It’s year ‘2020’ and I still take my drawing classes. I’m pretty much happy from my work but not SATISFIED. I wanted to grow more and achieve more is my life.

Then comes year ‘2015’ I got a job of a personality trainer. I was really happy with my work for six month. But then one day I was like let’s drop this lets try something else. In Salman Khan’s language “is kaam mein kick nahi mil rahi hai.” In ‘2016’ I left my job.

“After quitting my job, I was able to realize that I’m not taking a step backwards, I’m taking a leap forward to explore and redefine my own success.”

It was year ‘2016’ I started making vines, yes those funny 15 seconds videos. Received a very good response. But yes there was a few percentage of people who criticized a lot. But it is also true I was not at all satisfied by my work. Then one day out of nowhere I realized let’s just drop this. I wanted something different. I took a break, for about half a year.

Then comes ‘2018’ my journey of TikTok. I always used to admire TikTok stars. Always wanted to be a known face and also loved doing acting but somehow it didn’t worked. Whenever I used to post a video 50% of the crowd appreciated and rest 50% LAUGHED. I was very disappointed, like what am I doing? What do I actually want from myself?

But my life changed in year 2020, yes 2020 the covid period, THE LOCKDOWN was a turning point in my life. During the lockdown I used to do nothing just sit on the couch eating, watching Netflix, sleeping and yes I used to stay on my phone all day surfing on Instagram and Pinterest. I always used to love clicking pictures of myself. One day I was on my couch surfing on Pinterest I came across a nice portrait photoshoot of sisters. I loved that picture a lot. So me and my sister decided let’s click an exact same picture, let’s give it a shot. So we clicked the picture and uploaded it on Instagram and boom it turned out to be an amazing shot.
