Everyone knows that by sharing our goals with a person we trust we hope to get some form of acknowledgement and emotional support (or, at least a nod). What more, if we tell the public about it and the whole crowd gave a standing ovation (confirm, we feel like a champion already).
But, it's a bad idea actually. An idea that will backfire.
It's like some sort of coping or survival mechanism we have in us that makes us feel like "Okay, if people I trust say that I'm on the right path, means I am on the right path" and if they belittle our idea, we feel as if it is some form of eternal and holy condemnation that will put us in the path of regret and torment.
This is quite a dark and emotional post...if you wish to not get triggered or feel any form of emotional discomfort, please do not continue reading.
I've never had the passion for entrepreneurship, really. I just like doing things that makes me feel good about myself.
Since I was a teenager, I had a passion to do volunteering work with local mosques. By doing so, I've gained some experience organizing events, programs, and workshops for the youth.
I also loved the camaraderie and relationships built through the hardships and fun times we had together. In fact, me and my childhood friend joined the group together and became very close even until now.
I was also interested in fitness or outdoor related activities too like trekking, camping, kayaking, cave exploration, outdoor workouts, amazing race programs, and also working out at the gym.
During those times, I'd join any groups or organization just so I could do these activities. Yet, I would do so without having any interest of setting up my own business related to these activities at all - not until I started working on shifts.
