Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Society in general:

    You shouldn't leave your current role and go to uncertainty far away from your home.

  • How I responded:

    Follow your instinct and be decisive. It will strengthen your self-confidence. People who give you advice can be incompetent. In my case, many of them have never been ready to take a risk for something new in their life. Their opinion was not important to me.
