I told my friends that my life only really started after 25 years old. I am now 27.
I was living a routine lifestyle from 7-25 years old, going through the standard Singapore education system. From PSLE to O levels to A levels to National Service to 4-year university degree course.
You get what I mean? I had to study 4 years to get O levels cert, another 2 freaking years to get my A levels cert, another 2.5 torturing years to serve the nation and then the university years. I knew what lies ahead. For majority of the people, I can predict the future for them.
I know what lies ahead for them as well – that is after graduation, work your ass off until you are 65 and retire. In between that, there will be a lot of grumbles: salary is too little, no time, work’s stressful, boss sucks, colleagues suck, incompetent people get promoted etc. Blah blah blah.
For me, after I graduated, life is no longer a straight path. I really have the freedom to do whatever I want. I chose the entrepreneurship route. And never in my whole life will I thought that I will be doing business in Cambodia.
Whether it’s my internet marketing biz or my cafe… I create my own path. I make my own decisions. Whether I fail or succeed, I am the one responsible.
That’s what I call – LIFE
You get to choose what you want to be, where you want to be and how you want to be.
That’s what make life exciting isn’t it? Of course, you need people to give you opportunities and a little bit of luck as well to complete the whole picture.
Dare to dream, dare to fail and live the life you want.
So, my life kinda just started! LOL
