Growing up, I had one dream. I wanted to be a designer who designs beautiful houses. I loved drawing and design was my passion looking at different type of buildings always fascinated me, so I pretty much grew up with home TV. I studied architectural and interior design in uni, dreaming to become a designer one day. But then I found another passion in the way. Makeup, skincare, and all things beauty and this new passion took over my previous passion. So after graduating, I ended up working in the beauty industry to follow my new passion. Then something wasn’t quite right. Because another passion called content creating was a very very loud in my heart and my head and my intuition was telling me to pursue this fresh, new and stronger passion, so I decided to take the leap of Faith. I transitioned to a full-time YouTuber and I finally felt like, ‘This is it!’, ‘This is my dream job!’, ‘I was settled down to my final passion in my life!’. Because it just seems too good to be true. You do whatever you want to do. You choose how to work even. But after a year, it became too comfortable and a little bit too easy at one point. It wasn’t challenging enough and I started losing that passion. You see the pattern here. I followed what so called passion, then my passion gets replaced to another passion and I would feel empty again. Then I came across this. Design is not just a visual thing. Ultimately, Design is a tool to enhance our humanity. My fundamental hope really is that everybody starts to think in terms of putting people first. I mean, it’s a pretty simple mission. When you prioritize the human needs within a space, design can have a profound impact. I hope that we can add to the sum of human happiness. I do believe passion is oftentimes very overrated. It’s just an advanced or fancier term for interest. And as we learn new things and experience new things in life, our interest definitely changes and that’s perfectly normal. But when this passion is combined with the ‘WHY’ power, which is the reason why you do what you do. It just creates this unbreakable, unstoppable and very very powerful dream job. I failed at becoming a designer. Just because I relied on my passion. I love design, I love drawing, but I just simply didn’t have the reason why I needed to design. If I found meaning in amplifying people’s life and experience and their happiness through my design, I would have been a successful designer who’s very fulfilled with her life. I think this kind of realization reminds me that there’s no such thing as a dream job until you actually created. So whatever you do in your life, start with that ‘WHY power’. What problem do you want to solve? and what kind of value do you want to add to this world? What purpose do you want to serve to your community? So I’m quite content out where I am right now with my job. Not because of the benefits or the perks or whatever glamorous side that you might imagine as a Youtuber. But because I’m quite committed to the ‘WHY’ power I have a clear vision and clear reason why I want to do this particular job. Today is my 25th birthday, in fact. And I just wanted to share this one life-changing lesson that I learned throughout my entire life. And I hope you guys found this somewhat motivational and thank you guys so much for just providing or offering the reason why I need to keep pursuing this as a career. I’ll talk to you over at Instagram at about the Liah-yoo. I’ll see you guys soon in my next video until then stay healthy and happy.
