Are you afraid to quit your job, because you will become jobless?
Do not be afraid of it.
Parents, relatives, friends, and your partner will advise you against it. They want security and status for you.
But you want freedom and passion for yourself.
There is a conflict of interest. Prioritize yourself. You will be thankful to yourself later.
Save some money to sustain yourself and your family for 1-2 years.
Quit your job.
Write that mail to your boss, today.
And become jobless.
You will have a blank canvas of time.
Believe me, every child is curious, every man is passionate. About something or the other.
Use your free time to do what you love.
Keep doing what you love to do. It could be anything.
Read a lot of books. Attend some training programs.
Invest in yourself, upgrade yourself.
Your life will turn around. Believe me. For me it did.
That empty space. That nothingness… is the most fertile ground for new ideas to flourish, new careers to be formed and new businesses to be built.
You can never build something new for yourself if you never give yourself that empty space… and be jobless.
For 2 weeks, if you feel like doing nothing after you quit your job, do not be afraid. Slowly your energies will pool in and focus. And it will start getting spent in some activity – something that you love to do.
Passion is nourishment for the idea. And nothingness is the fertile ground in which you will grow.
Remember, there is nothing in a seed that says it is going to be a flower.
But flowers bloom all the time. If someone doubted the seed, they would never plant it.
If you doubt yourself, you will never bloom. Because you will never plant the seed.
Your parents, partner, friends, relatives, everyone will doubt you.
They will say – stick to what you have – because something is better than nothing.
But please remember that nothing is better than nonsense.
Most of the jobs in the world today are boring, repetitive, and toxic. It is nonsense.
And nothing is better than nonsense.
Why settle for something when you can possibly have everything better?
There is a price to pay. It takes courage.
To destroy what you have so that something new can be created out of the destruction. This is creative destruction.
Don’t be afraid of the nothingness.
Because only from nothing, something can be created.
Only in silence, music is created.
Only from darkness, light is created.
Only from solitude, love is created.
Only on a blank canvas, a beautiful painting is created.
And only from joblessness, a beautiful career is created.
Give yourself that space, to think, to rest, to read, to ponder, to travel, to eat better, to be fitter and I promise you, out of this space, your dream career will be born.
