I was actually scared of starting this site at first. There’s so many smart people, professionals, and researchers around me with very well thought out logical view points. Most of the time that I think of things, I keep it within myself, since I don’t feel what I have to offer is good enough. I’m going to take a step out of my comfort zone, and just give this a shot.
I posted some things about investing and finance on my Facebook, and people found it very receptive and liked it. This inspired me to give it a shot, and start this blog, and see if I can help people with their problems.
Growing up as a kid, I was a very curious kid interested in science & space. I picked up any book I can from the library about animals, science or space, and would just spend all my time reading about it. One interest that stood out to me was helping people with their problems. I didn’t realize that helping people with their problems could be broken down to a science.
I was helping a lot of people in middle school and high school who were going through tough times (from bad grades or challenging relationships) become a lot happier. I’m not sure if it was the steps I followed in the books I’ve read, or it was because I was naturally empathetic or looking to help people.
I’ve changed who I was. I used to seek validation from people and try to show off how “successful” I am. I think it was to fill an internal void where I wasn’t sure I knew what I was doing, I lacked confidence, and I was often compared to my smarter peers.
In middle school, my passion was writing. But my teachers were always saying there was this one girl who was always better than me. She was winning contests, getting recognized in class all the time, and everyone was praising her work and writing. I thought – I would never be able to surpass her if she’s always considered better than me, and I would never be able to achieve my writing goals, like publishing a book.
I didn’t know that in life, success isn’t based on who’s better. It’s based on who tries harder. I read that JK Rowling, and Ayn Rand were rejected dozens of time, and now their works are timeless pieces when I was in 7th grade. When I learned this, this gave me the courage to keep trying, even if I was failing many times.
I think you learn a lot from reading. That’s where I learned that it’s possible to be successful even if you’re not the best at something. I’m stepping up, and taking the courage to write this blog hopefully to inspire you that, you TOO can find happiness, and solutions to your problems, and you don’t have to be the best at whatever you are doing. You just have to try hard, believe, and not give up.
I’m going to take a chance at this project. I want to think about the problems that people face, and try to analyze it from my view point, do research, and present a solution that makes sense, and helps you with your problems. My belief is, despite all the info already out there, based on my experiences, credibility, story, people will be drawn and interested in what I have to say.
I’m not sure yet what topics I want to cover, whether it will be finance or health, but it will be best that I give it a shot, and start somewhere than never start at all. Eventually I will find my groove, and where to focus on based on what I enjoy writing about, and what people will want to read about it.
Please give me feedback, and I will take it into consideration.
