We believe in something and we want to go with something that we love to do. But our parents, friends or any other person doesn't believe in us until we start proving it to them.
There was an amazing incident that I wanted to share with you. Earlier when I started with the 'ONLINE' thing, I went in with Instagram itself. All the fancy stuff were being flashed on social media on how they are earning thousands of dollars through an Instagram account. And as anyone would do by seeing this, I joined in their courses by borrowing some money from my father. $7 was the price and I lost it all. Everything discussed in that course, I already knew about it by going to YouTube. Another time I was scammed for another $30 on another 'copy and paste' online job.
I incurred the second loss. I used to make content post for big Instagram accounts for $0.5 per post and earned about $20 a month or sometimes it would go really high. And in the very first month I made 90 posts for a person and made about $40 as my first ever income. I spend 2 days spending about 20 hours doing this and got scammed in just 5 minutes where I lost most of it. I couldn't do anything and it felt terrible to have lost the hard earned money. From that day, I made a pact with myself that even if I couldn't change them, at least I won't be scamming anyone ever in my life as I know how it feels to lose money.
Just before all of this, I used to tell everyone that I am into Instagram business and nobody used to believe me. I had this big vision of being successful and speaking in front of thousands of people. But nobody used to believe in this. I never said my parents what I was doing. But the day I came in with my first $40 and told this to my father, he was so happy for me, however he thought it could be a scam that I got into and it was so much trouble to make him understand everything.
But the best part is, my parents accepted it when they saw the 'RESULT' I brought.
