Little did you know as a kid, you had no idea of what life would look like after a certain span of time. As kids, everybody used to have their goals set up in mind, but very few tend to stick to that goal till the very end. As you grow up you are faced with the harsh realities of life.
Life is about a lot more than something you can perceive with your tiny brains.

There might no doubt be disinclination between your potential and your field of interest. There might be a thousand potentials in you, doesn’t mean you will randomly pick out one to have a life long battle with. This isn’t a brick and mortar store or an online shopping portal where you can go back in the nick of time to get on the new ball. You may though let it ride but then we all know what fate is going to be.
Inspirational proverbs start to seem so lame that you start despising the good. Only thing that could make you optimistic in approach is either the results of your endeavor or another opportunity to pursue your passion.
