What we might be a victim to the career crisis? This writing is inspired and some quoted by Alain De Botton, the man who I wish to be my best friend. One of my favorite writers.

If we feel ourselves becoming panicking about our career, that’s totally normal. Here’s some messages that I like the most about it.

“So, what I want to argue for is not that we should give up on our ideas of success, but we should make sure that they are our own. We should focus in our ideas and make sure that we own them; that we are truly the authors of our ambitions. Because it’s bad enough not getting what you want, but it’s even worse to have an idea of what is you want and find out, at the end of the journey, that it isn’t, in fact, what you wanted all along” — De Botton

“I will not be ashamed of a son who tries and fails but I will be ashamed if you don’t do it for fear, we are the best decision we ever took”

“My passion is reading, I want to read and write all day and bringing wisdom into people’s lives through her website and turns out that it become a huge success and she makes her living out of it!”

“He who has a why to live can bear almost any how” Nietzsche-

“He is not a loser, although he has lost”

“An ordinary life is an extraordinary achievement. To be content and to find happiness in the everyday and to find happiness in the everyday chaos we call life, is not a small achievement”

Good luck for life, ladies and gentleman! be ready for happiness:)
