Live each day as your Birthday


Many beautiful and close to me have given me wishes. And they also asked for my plan for my birthday.

I said I do what I do every day. That's what I am loving doing every day.

You go on and go to the party. Or do something differently. But that implies that you are waiting for your birthday (or any other special day) to be the day to do everything that you want.


I am studying my passion course, reading amazing books, writing a ton, learning in this whole process, and currently taking the Building A Second Brain course. Which I highly recommend to all. And doing the same each day (till my office training).

This same stigma applies to those working in jobs they dread and waiting for weekends to live.

The reason why you are not doing what you want to do every day is that you think you need a sign that tells you this is the time.


The need for approval. That's human nature. But now it's no more a necessity

If you do this, I have terrible news. A large portion of your life will be you waiting. To those who told you not to do it. I wanna quote Iron Man here.


"Listen, smile, agree, and then do whatever the fuck you were gonna do anyway."
-Robert Downey, Jr.

I was talking to this lady who just cleared CA, and I asked what is she gonna do after it?

'Currently nothing'.

'What's your plan then?'

'None'

'Why? You waiting for job replies for the proposals you sent?'

'Naah, nobody is supporting me in my family'.


Not judging anyone. But people don't support you until you put something on the table. Until you become successful. And that's totally fine. Until you are waiting for a miracle to happen that they will start supporting you.


Thank you for reading. It truly means a lot to me.
