Through VoiceMates, Anamika has tried to explain the importance of taking chances in life.
‘Life is all about taking chances, whether for career, dreams or relationships! When I completed my studies, I had no idea what my life would be after 5 years. All I knew was, I wanted to be an author and I wanted my voice to be heard. I left my high-paid radio job just after working for 20 days. That was the biggest risk I took as I just have had completed my studies, didn’t have money with me and had zero experience! No doubt, that was really a tough time, but today when I look back… I see it was totally worth the efforts. I see youngsters having passion in them to do something in life, but they hardly take chances to follow their passion, to chase their dreams. I really want to inspire people to take at least 1 risk in order to follow their passion and give their 102% in that one chance.’Says Anamika
Her thought provoking and inspiring words have changed life of many. She believe she is a dreamer and everyone should dream big. ‘When you dream big, you expand your ability to work for your goals!’adds Anamika.
When we asked about her opinion on success, she replied, ‘Success is not a matter of luck! It is all about the strategies, thoughts and hard work that you put together while chasing your dreams. It might take some time, but if your intentions are positive and determination is firm, success will be knock your door!’
Not many know, but Anamika is highly spiritual in nature. She believes in God and the powers of universe. ‘Yes! I am a spiritual person. I believe, Lord Ganesha is always there with me to help me sail through tough times. Also, I believe that universe is always listening. It is powerful and full of energies. So whatever we think and say, it goes up and something in return comes back. Therefore, I always try to stay and speak positive so that, I get positive in return from the universe!’ adds Mishra.
