Pursuit of Happiness

Pursuit of Happiness

Success takes longer

Almost three years ago, I quit my job to pursue my passion of becoming Software Developer which has been long dream of mine since childhood. At the time, I had wife and two-year-old who depended on me to support and any decision of quitting my job to pursue dream was difficult. This is because I had to abandon my personal responsibility of taking care my family, but I also knew that unless I take risk with my life for the greater good nobody would hand me an opportunity unless I seek for it and I will be saying what if for the rest of my life. It had been constant struggle in mind for month until I read how Jeff Bezos left six figure salary to start Amazon and it validated my inner thought of pursing my passion. Two months later, I quit my job and signed up coding bootcamp called the Software Guild in Minneapolis and after gruesome 4 months I landed my first job as developer and I am excited that I took that incridible step of pursing my passion.

 If I had not made that decision, I would be stuck cubical somewhere in Minneapolis counting the hours when the day would be over.

  1. Wow, that is a great and inspirational post. I’m so glad you took that leap to become a software developer. I did something similar. I originally went to school for Biology since writing seemed like a frivolous hobby that couldn’t support me, but I’m glad I returned to school for a degree in Creative Writing and now work as a freelance writer. I hope more people will choose to work towards their passion in life.
