A thought on Life: A Journey towards the unknown
No one tells you what to do with your life. No one really can give accurate advice on which paths to follow. Plain simple its a road with no signs and really not much besides a long journey ahead, which is being molded by you when you travel through it.
This was my life back then, and I had all the correct advices.
At eighteen years old I graduated from high school and had to choose a career path. I was at the time a professional tennis player and my parents didn’t want me to gamble the best years that I had to achieve my full potential, or whatever the hell that is.
I got into engineering school and on the second year of the career I knew that was a complete mistake. On an Algebra II class I just said, okay well that is just not for me. In front of the class, got through that door and never came back.
Later after that got into Business school, still didn’t think that was for me, but ended up studying three years either way. Got a secondary degree that allowed me to work or at least get a decent knowledge of economics in general. I Still have to finish that career.
On March 9th 2020 I decided to travel abroad and work outside. I have done everything by the book, got the required paperwork and documents to present and enough money to get a working visa on Denmark. On March 10th immigration offices on Copenhagen closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Had to return to my country (I am from Argentina) and later on August that same year got the chance to work abroad on the United Kingdom (London) and what would you know. November 5th they would close the entire country, once again had to go back.
At the beginning of 2021 I had nothing, I was back to square one with no studies, no job, and living with my father. Heartbroken by what I thought was the end of my good years and that I had become a washup and no good for anything because I “didn’t follow the steps that everyone does” and because of that I have nothing and don’t have a proper job… I went all in on crypto. With just 600 dollars which was the money I got from selling my phone.
Thanks to a friend of mine I was introduced in this incredible world in which there are new technologies everyday. I was baffled with the information that was circulating and how far we have come building lots of functional chains and new bridges onto a new world
I got into a project as a Community Manager (Apexit Finance) and learned a lot from it, when it was my time to depart I gave my gratitude and looked into new projects. A lot were really useful, others had a very friendly community, others just fun to hang around.
And then came Near.
@FritzWorm gave me the huge opportunity to take a part on it and right now I’m trying to do anything I can to give back and create more connections and get as many people as I can into this incredible ecosystem that is Near and that is Blockchain on itself.
Thanks to that crazy and wise year that 2020 was, from the rock bottom down below I could reconstruct a new version of me. I managed to get really good calls on crypto and make a living out of it (surely it was a little bit of luck and some knowledge on economy). And learned an important truth about life based on what was my worst moment which had transformed me and granted me the possibility of living a new life.
That there really is no correct path. There really are not correct advices or something that can assure you that you will succeed or that you will get a safe future. Or even that you will at least like it. I had the best advices there could be and (luckily of course) I could do anything it was supposed to be done. And that got me nowhere as planned.
And the best thing I could have done is risk it all. Never let any advice or someone who is not yourself decide what would be better for you. You have to ride that road that is meant only for you. And only you will fill that journey with memories that will decide where is headed.
That is the best way to live this Journey towards the unknown.
Thank you very much if you read all the way through, hope it brings some clearance to whatever it may clear
