It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.— Theodore Roosevelt
It’s really curious how all this new experience of living overseas has meant to my personal development. And if you think like a Salvadorian, it’s literally over-seas and in a different continent. And while this definition of “different” might sound a little overused, I can surely say that everything is completely different. Just take from instance the region Turkey is located in, and you will see what I’m talking about.
The change I was confronted with was very different and a bit overwhelming. Take for example, a completely different language, or new food, or the way people think, just to name a few. And in matter of weeks I had to adapt to the new city I was living in. Now that the transition is over and I look back, I can clearly see that was not an easy path. There were always these decisions that I had to make. Whether make some time and Skype with my friends and family back at home, or just hang out with my new friends and start making long-lasting bonds.
Objectives & Motivations
“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.” When I first heard this quote of Jack Welch I knew the path that I wanted to follow. My vision is to become an example and a successful entrepreneur, so that I can be a good leader for others to follow, and an employment source for others. I realized that I wanted to be an entrepreneur when I started my company because even though some people tried to stop me, I didn’t listen to their negative words and instead focused more on my final goal. “Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.” In this quote by Anthony D’Angelo he reflects his thoughts about the importance of passion in learning.
I aspire to foster a never-ending passion for learning and continue to grow further. I want to develop both personally and professionally, and the best way to achieve that is by getting out of my comfort zone, but I also need develop a deep interest in hands-on learning experience.
