"You must be the change you want to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi
For me being a lawyer entails speaking the truth. You cannot sugarcoat the situation, you need to maintain transparency, trust your gut and be a lot more open in your approach towards your Clients.
I have learned that broadly three parameters matter to be good at your work:
1) Belief - Belief in yourself. Believe that you can do things that you might not even be aware of. Our beliefs, both conscious and unconscious, can have a profound impact on our entire life trajectory.
2) Intuition - Trusting your intuition means tuning in as deeply as you can to the energy you feel, following that energy moment to moment, trusting that it will lead you where you want to go and bring you everything you desire.
3) Ability - Ability to take action on your intuition - Sometimes we all are so scared of acting on our intuition that we do not act on it.
Also, sometimes having that mentor, having that one person who believes in you even when you don't believe in yourself is really important. It's all about being a source of good and positivity in the world. No matter what is it that you're doing, you need to stay grounded and be kind. You may feel small and inconsequential but remember the raindrops creates the ocean and the ocean creates the waves. That's important because there is a lot of darkness out there.
Sometimes people ask me why can't just be a lawyer? Why always look to do other things? Now, I do not know the exact reason but my work gives me the language to answer the question about who I am. That's affirming and that encourages me to do things that I do. For me, I always understand things in retrospect but not at the moment. When every dot connects, I feel divinely inspired about sharing my story. Always look back and you would realize how everything comes together. Perhaps you may feel vulnerable sharing about your crisis but when you're engaging with an audience you need to remember that you're not just your success but you're all of your struggles, failures, problems & crisis that comes along your way.
The struggles, the challenges, and the failures are truly gifts for me to help me qualify to help others. The rags to riches stories are inspiring but what about the element of struggles? For example, "feeling that you're not good enough" in my case. I want to give voice to those people who feel this way.
I think a vast majority of people are living passenger seat life, while life is happening to them. For me, I believe we are the co-creators of our lives, and it's important to get control of your life, that's when things start changing for you. When you start realizing that you're here for a purpose and start making active choices, it's game on! Everything becomes so much fun.
