Have you ever woken up one day and felt like you need to explain your existence to yourself and the immediately went into a frenzy of thoughts that make you feel like you wasted your entire life? If yes, know that you’re not alone. You’re experiencing what is newly dubbed as the quarter-life crisis. A stage in life (usually encountered after college) where you question every little thing you do. Paired that with failures that we experience in our lives, we feel like we have failed at life and that it’s too late for us. But, if you stop yourself and ask, what is life? The answer to this mystery strictly depends on the liver.
For instance, Mr. Samuel Tafesse’s (Sunshine Real-state, Marriott…) first job was as a parking attendant at the Addis Ababa Stadium, he then did finishing jobs and maintenance at a small construction firm. This was even before he joined college and dropped out. It took a lot of effort for him to get to where he is today.
There is no magically marked age line that destroys your success once you’ve passed it. No it isn’t too late for you to change you career path! It isn’t too late to hunt for you dream job! It isn’t even near late to start over and learn something new. It all depends on you. It’s equally important to note that success isn’t a decision. You can’t just decide to be successful and just be that. But, you can better the odds for success by ensuring that you’ve tried everything in your power to actually ensure that success. The rest depends on luck and who you know.
So next time you have dark thoughts about wasting your life remember that it’s not too late for you to try. Your life is just starting. If you still need a little push outside of that dark corner of your mind, remember that Samuel L. Jackson 47 when he got his first big break in 1991. Today, he is one of the most sought after actors. Again, if you ask the question, what is life? It all depends on the liver.
