Maintaining good self-esteem is the most important thing for me. A balance of personal, vocational and spiritual aspect of one's life is necessary to achieve this goal.
I would say that as a personal goal, maintaining a healthy lifestyle would top the priority list. This is not an easy goal as this involves exercising regularly, avoiding addictions of any kind and investing time in relationships (that I value). On a spiritual level, my goal would be to master practices that would help me in making decisions that are in accord with the values that I believe in - Honesty, Excellence and Collaboration.
However, I realized that we spend 12-14 hours per day on our vocation. That is a considerable amount of time in one day. Therefore, it would be satisfying if I am in a field of work, which I believe can change the society. I got the opportunity to be part of a seminar - perspective, a self-awareness session where we analyzed various dimensions of our life. After nearly 48 hours of intense self-analysis, I got the purpose of my life, which is “To create an environment that harness technology efficiently and energize human thought process in enabling a future full of possibilities”.
The words “create “and “possibilities” are what excite me the most. I want to take the initiative in creating self-sustaining businesses that would transform people’s life and create endless possibilities. I have taken the initiative in starting a portal that would help MBA aspirants achieve the goal of getting into a business school of their choice. Since my purpose drives me to take action, I want to equip myself with the necessary skills to manage a business. Therefore, an MBA from your business school at this point in my career would give the impetus in fulfilling my purpose.
Points to Remember
