What Is Life? Let’s Look Deep Within Ourselves
I’m willing to bet that we’ve all at one point of our life, asked ourselves the question “What is life? What is the purpose of me living on this planet?”. First of all, let me introduce myself to those of you who visited this site for the first time.
My name is Ardiv Jauhari, and I am a professional musician who graduated from University Institute Of Technology Mara as a major in Music. These past few years I have spent traveling around my country performing and playing music, now, I am focused on the path of entrepreneurship. I choose Internet Marketing as the vehicle for me to travel this road.
The reason I’m writing this article today is because I had a little “moment” with myself earlier. I was laying on my bed thinking to myself, “what is the real purpose of me going through all these hardship that I choose to go through, what is it that made me want to achieve success so much?”.
The truth is, I could not answer that question. At first I thought it was to support my family and help contribute so that they wouldn’t have to work for the rest of their lives anymore. But at the same time, I am also doing this to prove to myself and others that I am not some kind of worthless thrash that is not capable of achieving anything worth mentioning.
But then I realized, I’m not going through all these bumps for my family but it is actually for myself. This is actually an excuse for me to give myself a purpose, an even higher purpose than before when I was only focused on playing music.
What Is Life? My Honest Answer
You see, as a musician (most other musicians can probably relate to this), most of our time are spent practicing alone to improve ourselves to a higher level in our playing ability. The problem with that was, we’re still only focused on ourselves alone. It dawned on me, what if I could change my narrow perspective to a larger one where I am constantly improving myself so that other people could enjoy listening to a more refined music coming from me?
That insight alone helped propel me to another level in my musicianship. Other musicians then start to recognize me and are more willing to play with me compared to before where they would just ignore me and give me “the look” whenever I asked to play with them.
I completely missed this when I shifted to Internet Marketing. I was too focused on making money for myself, not realizing the real reward comes from helping others by providing value to them and walk with them on the path of success as well.
It’s funny because I did not realize this simple understanding even though I have already experienced it. But watching the videos from the founders of the current company I’m in, David Wood and David Sharpe really helped wake me up. I now vow to dedicate myself in providing value to others and stop being so selfish.
So what is life to me? It is the realization that the world does not revolve around me but instead, it is about building a better world and experience for others. Let’s lock arms and walk with me on this journey, I look forward to working with you on the otherside.
