The best advice that someone can share is something that is based on their experience. I am where I am right now because of the decisions that I made in the past and not being swayed by others’ perceptions or thoughts. As they say, “Experience is the best teacher.” You will learn more from things that happen to you in real life than you will from hearing about or studying things that happen to other people. I had my fair share of it. I grew up in a family where everyone had a fear of losing to the extent of me feeling confined to that belief and culture. As I went along with my life and when I hit rock bottom, I was able to realize and conquer my fears in the process.

I explored other things that I loved to do. The ones that I used to love and just forgot about because I was blinded by things that are more pleasant and acceptable. I cultivated my talents in the field of music and orchestra. I began to travel all around the world, and as I met different people with diverse cultures and personalities, I understood that I have a purpose of reaching out to everyone not just through my music but through my wisdom and experiences. From coaching and conducting hundreds of amateurs and professionals across Canada, the USA, Europe, and the Middle East in voice and musicianship, I decided to fully retire from engineering to fully devote my pursuit to the music profession. In 2012 I sold all my possessions and booked a one-way ticket to Berlin, Germany; from there, I conducted operas across Europe and won 3rd prize in the 2013 International Conducting Competition in Budapest, Hungary. In 2014, I returned to Canada and began my studies in psychotherapy while continuing with my conducting career as an ongoing passion.

It was hard at first to lose something precious to me, but without losing it, I would never have pursued something worthwhile and fulfilling. I may not end up with a job that people perceived as something that could provide me security financially, but I am proud to say that I felt secure and happy on the road less traveled.

The diverse worlds of work and life experiences have built upon one another and are connected as a whole. They are what led me to discover my purpose and to develop ‘Heal the Source,’ a method that helps people fast-track their healing based on their need for change and development. It is through this one-of-a-kind approach that my intuitive leadership and integrity shine through. My visionary way of thinking and my intriguing ability to motivate and inspire is what guides me in serving others through Heal the Source to heal the world.

At some point, I thought I wouldn’t be able to recover to the extent of needing someone to get me back on track not just emotionally but also physically, spiritually, and mentally. I was able to gather all my strengths and move on, live freely, laugh as if there is no tomorrow, and love unconditionally. I would say that I was able to mold a better version of myself. I was able to pursue what I wanted and was thrilled about what I could share with the people that surrounded me.

So, to all the young professionals, life is like a roller coaster ride. It has its ups and downs and can be scary yet exciting. Thus, there is no easy road to success. We have to continue cultivating our talents, discover what we love to do, and conquer our fears so that they won’t hinder our decisions towards what we wanted and live an infinite life. Until then, we can reach the career or dream that we want.
