Do you believe your future is pre-destined? Or do you think you can #changedestiny?
In a recent survey, SK-II found that more than two-thirds of women subscribe to a predestined life. This means these women surrender control over their lives to be restricted by societal expectations and essentially limiting their true potential.
Let me share with you a personal story of mine.
At my first job, at a tender age of 19, I was hired as a advertising executive at a MNC advertising agency. It was the dream, except, it wasn’t.
After 3 months, my boss’s boss told me gently that I am not suitable for this role. Perhaps, I should go explore doing media sales instead.
I was devastated. But one of the nicer boss (I was reporting to 2 bosses) I had took me out for lunch and told me…
“Don’t let others tell you what you can or can not be. Go be whatever you want to be.”
And I did.
10 years later, I’m where my (then) boss was, teaching the younger kids the ropes of this industry.
