The Conversation That Changed My Life Forever.

MY LIFE COMPLETELY CHANGED THE DAY I TOLD MY FATHER I DIDN’T WANT TO RUN THE FAMILY BUSINESS.

I needed to tell him how I truly felt.

The last question turned out to be the only question that would hold the gravity to change my life forever.

He said, “That’s great man. You need to do what you think you should do in this life. Of course I have wishes for you and I have an idea of what I think you should do in this life. At the end of the day, that’s what it is though, your life. I wasn’t given the luxury of a choice. My father dragged me with him to the shop to groom me into running it. I don’t want to make the same mistake he made with you. It’s your life. Live it how you see fit. I’ll be here for you.”

In that moment, my life changed forever.

I learned that the truth will set you free (as cliche as it is).

I learned to put myself out in front of people more. To bear my insecurities with others.

I learned there are things in life to clear up with others in order to give yourself the landscape to follow your passions.

I learned you cannot think for other people.

I learned that fears are usually perceived as bigger than they actually are.
