Defying Limits: Embracing The Absurd And Proving The Mass Wrong In Life And Career

Posted on 16th November 2022

They said "๐—œ๐˜'๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฏ๐—น๐—ฒ" ๐Ÿ˜ when...

โ–ถ๏ธ ...at 15 I decided to stand against ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ abuse and live on my own terms. I proved them wrong.

โ–ถ๏ธ ...at 21 I decided to buy a ๐˜€๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น ๐—ณ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜ to start a healthier life on my own, with no family behind, no guarantor and no savings. I proved them wrong.

โ–ถ๏ธ ...at 27 I decided to ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜ ๐—ฎ ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ in Contemporary History while working full-time. I proved them wrong.

โ–ถ๏ธ ...at 35 I decided to ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ด๐—ฒ ๐—บ๐˜† ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ entirely while moving to London with a pretty embarrassing English. I proved them wrong.

โ–ถ๏ธ ...at 38 I decided to ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜ ๐—บ๐˜† ๐—ผ๐˜„๐—ป ๐—ฏ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ with zero entrepreneurial experience. I proved them wrong.

โ–ถ๏ธ ...at 41 I decided to ๐—น๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—บ๐˜† ๐—ฑ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—บ ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ต๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ, despite being the most expensive area (Chelsea) in the most expensive city in the world (London). I proved them wrong.

โ–ถ๏ธ ...at 44 I decided to ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ด๐—ฒ ๐—บ๐˜† ๐—ฏ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—น and work directly with Fortune 100 companies despite me having zero sales skills. Again, I proved them wrong ๐Ÿ˜œ.

How do I consistently prove the mass wrong (and have a lot of fun doing it)?

โ€ข Investing quality time in getting to know myself

โ€ข Trusting what I feel vs what society thinks is right for me

โ€ข Using my values and emotions as a compass in life

Bottom line: Pursuing the "absurd" is much more fun than living within someone else's limitations

โ€ข You are the source of your own strengths and motivation. Look at your past experiences and celebrate each time you aimed at the "absurd" and won, and turn it into fuel for future "absurd" goals. 

So now I'm curious: when did you prove the mass wrong in your life/career? What helped you achieve your "absurd" goal?
