“Who do you think you are. To dream this big.” Some years back, that was what I was told when I shared about my plans of achieving my dreams.
My mum said to stop dreaming and go get a degree because that lifestyle I talked about, it is not for me.
Even my closest friend said I was being unrealistic.
The funny thing is I wasn’t even surprised at their reactions. I somehow expected it because to be honest, I was pretty scared of my dreams as well. It was “too big” at that time.
I started turning things around when I realized that it’s either they are right, or I am right.
I grew and grew and grew. Looking back now, I am proud of everything that I’ve accomplished. Starting up a hedge fund is already my next big goal. And I am at the peak of excitement in my life right now. It feels awesome, is what I can tell you.
