I aspire to be an entrepreneur. But why?
Entrepreneurs are able to remain adaptable in the ever-changing world. They’re free to pursue contentment because of their independence, drive, and passion.
I believe business is one of the best tools we have for social change. One day, I’m going to start a social enterprise so I can shape the future and create a positive social impact.
While pursuing this goal, I’ll free myself from the fear of scarcity by fully embracing the abundant possibilities we have access to. By adopting this mindset, I’m confident I’ll maintain optimism, and create positive ripples throughout society.
I opted out of school.
I left school because it suffocated my ability to properly live, learn, and develop. Leaving school in 7th grade allowed me to discover what I wanted to do with my life. This isn’t because schools are inherently bad, but rather because they didn’t work for me.
Schools made me hate learning, but after I left, an intrinsic desire to learn came back to me. Upon realizing my love for learning, I fully embraced this new adventure of self-directed education.
I love to take pictures.
I’m a total geek. I also love art.
Photography is the perfect blend of technology and art. It can teach us many important concepts that are universally applicable. The act of photographing has inspired me to see the world in a different way.
There’s a concept in Hindu philosophy called “Maya”. The Maya is like a veil that exists between us and reality. It’s an illusion that causes us to see the phenomenal world.
In order to take great photos, you gradually learn how to lift that veil, and see the world in an entirely new way. This creative process has broadened my perspective and helped me gain skills in thinking outside the box.
Photography is a practice in creative experimentation, mindfulness, and observation. Throughout my explorations, it has guided me to discover the world and its possibilities in a new way.
Exploration is in my blood.
Exploration and discovery are my main motivators. You might see me wandering in an alleyway or spelunking in a cave. There’s nothing that excites me more than the process of exploring and traveling.
I’m always wondering where my adventures will take me next.
Thanks for reading.
