Back in 2001, I used to work for a local Hindi newspaper in Delhi.
Once I was asked to write an editorial. The moment the editor looked at my work he made a weird face and said “Well, there will be some changes.” I looked forward to it so I may learn something new. But when I saw the ‘changes’, I was disappointed. My ideas were twisted just to make the piece sensational. .
And then it happened every time I wrote editorials. No matter how good I wrote, there were always some ‘changes.’ Finally I realized that it’s not my editorial that needs changes but my willingness to stay stuck in a place where my vision and ideas did not hold any value.
I quit that job.
Are you struggling in an organization to get your message across and failing again and again?
Are you losing faith in yourself?
There may be two reasons why this is happening to you.
Either you are trying to succeed in a field that’s not your forte.
You are trying to sell light to blind people.
So, which one is it?
