The questions anyone and almost everyone will have is: “How do I discover my passion and purpose?” and “How do I save myself from a ‘settled down’ mindset?”
There is no simple formula for getting answers to these questions. Our lives have to lived properly -that means hard work, hard thinking, by giving, by trying, by building, and by doing this again and again.
