|A picture from my solo trip|
How the universe kicked my butt
My lecturer called me one fine day, saying that he is seeing many fresh graduates posting on LinkedIn about their difficulties in finding jobs and how some companies are bias when selecting candidates and even when they are all qualified, they have to wait for jobs and for that one chance to break through a career.
He called me and said the posts on LinkedIn inspired him to come up with ideas to write a book for fresh graduates entitled The Sin of A Fresh Graduate.
He said he knows my passion for books and writing and thus wants me to write two chapters for the book.
I\’m already into the book and publishing industry but I never wrote a book before this although I have a plan to write one. It\’s my dream to have my existing book business go big.
Little did I know that this is how the universe conspires to kick my butt and get me doing what I wanted to do.
I wrote the two chapters, and the gist of the chapters is basically encouraging graduates to think out of the box and explore all possibilities including entrepreneurship.
Now, writing the chapters has forced me to walk the talk. It has encouraged me to dive into entrepreneurship again now that I\’m free from depression, and I have to make sure that the book is going to be a best seller because I\’m in the industry already and I need to be successful to run a successful business.
It\’s just amazing how the universe conspires to force you and kick you in the butt to make sure you become what you preach.
