Popularity is not the goal, the goal is to achieve life goals by creating positive impacts
Recently I was having a webinar mentoring session with my students. We talked about purpose in our life. I was discussing about an import aspect which I clarified on that discussion about -
Positive impact vs popularity, where should be the focus?
When I share or speak on any particular topics, the very first and foremost important thing for me is - What I am speaking is
On the internet there are a lot of influencers, they're doing a lot of fun stuff, making a lot of jokes entertainment things, making people laugh, giving them a lot of fun advice example - The short cut to be rich, how to get a job quickly, how to nail down an interview etc
I don't do that because I don't think that's going to add true values for the listeners. For me I think that what actually help people
o achieve goals, you will need to learn many other skill set and and many of them maybe you might like to do but some others you will not like to learn or even hate to learn. But you have to do because those skillsets are important why? Because those are going to help you to meet your purpose, your goals.
I will give you an example from my own life, I hated statistics subject when I was in high school but when I was studying science and engineering, I had to learn this program because I knew that this is going to be one of the key things for my any algorithm or even programing logics.
Let’s pick up another example - Few years ago, I did not like writing, so I was just giving speeches and that's it. But then I figured out that I have to write to communicate to more audiences. Because every person simply doesn't have the same English language competency, as I'm trying to communicate with them by English only.
That's why I write articles, I am writing books, journals, booklets to communicate with all of you.
So the bottom line is only doing the things, what we love is not enough to make us successful. To achieve goals or what you want to achieve in a career or a business or in our life so we need to learn, look for actively knowledge, opportunities, good intents etc to embrace them. It does not matter, those we really like or not.
We can't just throw away something which is needed because we don't like them.
