The Discover Project

So I am supposed to write something on a video that is just 2:53 mins long but to be honest it is one of the easiest things I came across in blogging. The reason is the content that this wonderful video titled as “Find your World” has and you can watch it yourself at the end of this blog post .This small video contains the message that you will learn in a big seminar by paying big money.

This Ebay Video has a term called “Discover Project” where one person tries all possible things on earth to discover who he is and finally succeeds. The person follows a different route to find about what he actually likes and one fine day he gets to know what he is best at. This video has forced me to rethink about myself, about who I am? About what is my identity? About what I am good at or can be good at. We are so busy with our daily life that we don’t find time to think about things that makes us most happy.  There is saying  “ Everyone is this world is special in some way and is good at at-least 1 thing” but we fail to live based on our terms because we don’t spent time on knowing what is the one thing that we are good at. This video has forced me once again to rethink about all this. I am forced to go back to my past when I was almost forced to join a college and a course where I didn’t want to but had to. Only reason for this is that I was not brave enough to take decision on what I actually wanted to do in life. Had I taken a brave step at that time I wouldn’t have been doing this work that I am supposed to do now. But Yes I changed myself to align with how my life is going currently and I am more happier now than that I was 2-3 years back , but still there is so much scope in life to live it on my terms. After watching this video I am going to give it one more try to make my life more worthy for myself if not for anyone else.

There are many things I want to do to live this life on my terms, like roaming around country and world to explore this wonderful mother earth  without worrying about how much money it takes, trying all possible adventures possible.

To write about my experience about life on regular basis. I am mad about writing though I may not be very good at it but writing gives me so much of happiness so I will keep writing. 

I don’t have dream of becoming the richest or the mightiest person but yes I want to be the happiest person in my own terms and I am sure I am going to achieve it. I am  going to do everything i can do to make me happy and curious about life no matter at what cost it comes .Thank you ebay for this wonderful video that makes us discover ourselves.It makes us rethink about life and how to make ourselves more important in our own eyes.
