Don’t Let Life Randomly Kick You

Don't let life randomly kick you

While orbiting earth in the International Space Station, Chris Hadfield did an AMA on Reddit.

Below was such a powerful message that I thought it needed to be shared.

“Decide in your heart of hearts what really excites and challenges you, and start moving your life in that direction. Every decision you make, from what you eat to what you do with your time tonight, turns you into who you are tomorrow, and the day after that. Look at who you want to be, and start sculpting yourself into that person. You may not get exactly where you thought you’d be, but you will be doing things that suit you in a profession you believe in. Don’t let life randomly kick you into the adult you don’t want to become.”

“I failed 3 times in college. I applied 30 times to get a job but I have always been rejected. When KFC came to China for the first time, we were 24 to apply and I was the only one to be dismissed.

I applied 10 times to return to Harvard University USA and I was rejected.” Jack Ma, Alibaba Creator & 22nd World fortune according to Forbes in 2015.

“Never give up because you failed once, know that failure is sometimes out of the way to reach your intended route”
