Many of the industries in our beloved Caribbean are under developed and lacking structure, after all, we are a developing community. Many of us though, still manage develop and grow ourselves as professionals in the various disciplines we choose to be a part of. It that expertise we use to earn a living and eventually fulfill our dreams and passions. This post is directed and such people.
You have invested much time, energy and money into building yourself into the person you are today. You might be a bit of an unsung hero but no one can deny that you have attained a certain level of skill and talent in your area of endeavour. Take some time and be proud of that.
I want to encourage you to share what you have learnt with the world. Nah, not quite setting up workshops necessarily. I want you to give yourself the permission to do something to celebrate your talents and gifts. Put together some kind of showcase which you can really pour all your expertize, experience and skill into. We all have some dream project we would love to execute …. but we wait. Well stop waiting, its that simple.
I believe that it is important that you share the things you have learnt through these projects and help to move your industry forward. These dream projects stretch the minds of those currently in the industry and make more dreamers and less complainers . They can intrigute the younger bright minds in the Caribbean Community. You feel great about being able to give the gift of inspiration to your son, daughter, neice or nephew etc. You have the power to give imagination, inspiration and freedom to the coming generation.
Those young minds are watching your every move, it is your choice in what you do with that attention.
