What does it take to follow your passion and find true purpose in life ?
According to Dj,
“Understanding that ideas are over rated, execution is the key.
You will need 2 kinds of people in life- one who is very excited for you and cheers you on, and second kind of person who will give you a reality check and not compassionate talks when things go wrong .
Embrace your failures more than success , it is only when odds are low that growth actually happens”
