Every one of us have heard this question at early age – “What will you become when you grow up?” We were asked this question to predict our future 10 years from then.
At times, we knew confidently and at times we are perplexed. Then we invest a decade at least in education and land into a job or business. But most of us don’t become what we had in dreams while we were kid.
At age 30 when I choose to switch profession, everyone asked me same question, “where do you see yourself in 10 years” but no one with same positive tone. There is something fundamentally wrong in that question.
Our body is made of nature and nature, the Earth, is millions of years old. Then how much time should it take for me to grow up? 100 years is not even a blink of eye’s time as compared to Earth’s age. If you consider earth age as 24 hours then whole of the humanity’s existence is just 7 seconds. Where do you stand?
So, I conclude, either I’m grown up by birth or I’m not grown up at all when I leave my body at the age of 100. Whatever I want to be in next 10 years, I must practice now irrespective of my age and all other barriers of today. Then and only then in 10 years I’ll be the expert of what I dreamt of 10 years earlier. I can change my dreams, my profession 10 more times and still be as happy as I was when kid because I’ll never grow up neither will I ever be a kid. I’m professional from the day I choose to live and follow profession of my dream. Yes, impact and competency in reality will increase with practice, practice and practice.
