13 Years Ago I Quit My 9-5

by AJ Mihrzad on

13 years ago, on this date, I quit my 9-5 career and embarked on a journey as an entrepreneur. I’ve experienced both highs and lows, but I can honestly say it was the best decision that I’ve ever made! I wake up every morning with passion​ because I love what I do. I’m improving lives, helping others, and making an amazing living.

Each year, I learn more and progress further. If I’d never taken that risk 13 years ago, I would not be where I am now.

I’m not saying this to brag, rather to make you realize that if you’re upset with your current job, find something new.

Follow your dreams. pursue your passion. I mean, I have such a feeling of purpose running through my veins. Every morning I wake up embracing the day.

At times I stay up late at night doing work, dealing with stress and heartache, but you know what, I wouldn’t trade for the world. I am blessed.

Being and entrepreneur and doing what you love means you have full control over your destiny. Just a random thought I wanted to throw out there.

Do what you love: the money, the feeling of fulfillment, and sense of direction will soon follow… Go get it baby!

In an instant, you can create a heaven or hell out of your reality. As you’re looking at this photo, you see a dude smiling and grateful for the fruits of his labor. What you don’t see is the years of self-doubt, addiction, suicidal thoughts, pain, poverty, insecurity, and tragedy that I had to go through in order to be alive today.

Often we see the finished product that a person showcases.

But we never see what they went through to get to where they are today.

That is why I NEVER ever judge Anyone based on appearances.

Most people that accomplish anything Great in Life have to go through Hell to obtain it.

I’ve come to realize that a person’s Success is directly correlated
to the amount of pain, they can tolerate.

Your Perception will allow you

to get inspired or insecure.

You can hate or celebrate.

I choose to Celebrate Success everywhere I see it.

I used to get jealous when people achieved certain things.

Little did I know, I was screwing myself in the process because

Self comparison is the thief of joy.

We’re all unique and came to where we are from different paths.

You never know the challenges a person overcame to be where they are.

I’m proud to see others prosper,

it shows me what’s possible.

If you’re reading this,

I hope something amazing happens to you.

And all your dreams come true. 🙂
