MY STORY

THE LONG VERSION

“ The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The work of life is to develop it. The meaning of life is to give your gift away.” David Viscott

When I was around 12 years old, Movie was the only window for me to see the world. In 2008, many people suffered from the crash and that includes my dad, he went bankrupt. Him and my mom left me in that year without the courage of telling me the truth, they just left me living with my aunt. I was devastated at the time, little did I know it was the best thing that ever happened to me. It was a blessing in disguise, it helped me to get on a path of live my dreams. While living with distant relative in a tiny apartment, one thing always kept me entertained when no one is home, movie. So I watch as many as I can find, and that's how I learn about this world, about life. It helped me to see the beauty, the possibility, the wisdom. It felt like the code for this world in presented in front of me.

The universe has a plan for all of us, during high school I took a media class and started to make videos. And that lead me to my first summer job in construction, painting & taking out old apartment trashes, so I can buy myself a camera. I was so proud the fact that I bought it myself so I took filming a little bit more seriously.

Life is large than us, it can’t make sense all the time. You probably asked yourself, how can my passion make me a living? Or making a death sentence to your dream by saying - this is unrealistic! This can’t be done! That’s too much risk! One of Oprah Winfrey’s core philosophy is to follow your soul’s purpose, and become the best version of yourself.

“The great courageous act that we must all do, is to have the courage to step out of our history and past so that we can live our dreams.” Oprah Winfrey

In 2017, I dropped out of film-school without any concrete plan, it was scary and no one around me is supporting this decision. After burning the bridge, the survival instinct kicked in. I went online and search for business courses and people skill courses, because those are the core skills to start my own business. Then a miracle happened, I found out that a Dale Carnegie Course is happening near me.

Opportunity always presents when the moment you decided to live your truth.

I took the course. Not only the course changed my life, I got a job there and learn all I had to learn about the business and how American people interact. The people in the company was amazing, I had mentors that cared about my success and taught me many life lessons. I feel like I have the code now. And just today, I did the hard thing but the right thing, I called my boss and mentor and told them it’s time for me to go after my dreams. I quit, and they are happy for me. Now I am using my gift to serve others, I am enjoying the process and make a living doing so. Simply because I choose to live my truth, it is simple but it is hard. And from my experience I want to tell you that it is worth it. You don’t have to know the how, just start with your WHY.

Ask yourself today - What’s my gift? What’s my passion? What is the thing I enjoy doing and also provide value to others? Once you find your truth, once you find the work that you love doing, it is time for you to tell a story. That’s the one thing to help you reach your goals, human-beings are hard wired to respond to a story, and that’s how you can help others. Steve Jobs didn’t only develop a great product, he is an amazing story-teller and marketer. I believe the world needs to hear your story, that’s where your personal power comes from, and that’s also the reason I started Mage Create, to help you create your story and share it to the world.
