WHY DID I QUIT MY CORPORATE JOB?
Are you living life by default? Are you feeling stuck? We are slaves dictated by life’s pressures, demands. 2 game changing ingredients that will change your life. Purpose and momentum! Purpose to me is so much important than a passport or country of origin or the name given to you. Purpose to me is your identity. Discovering your purpose is like discovering teenage sex for the first time. Everybody wants to do it not many know how.

The power to refuse the order or system that is kinda dictated to us.. My strong belief to succeed in life…
I believe these two things come from my mom. 🙂 In 1970s… Since to read book wasn’t allowed in my mom’s family house, she used to read newspaper shopping packages under her blanket with the candle light.
I had a difficult childhood. It wasn’t easy to be three siblings in a financially weak family. However, during my university education I succeeded to change the game in a positive way. These hardships helped me to be a stronger woman in life. So, I appreciate all these things that happened in the past.
Well, having such a background, to have a corporate job meant a lot for me. Making my own money, having a good title, buying things I want to buy, going on holidays etc. However, it has been great to experience these good quality life after graduation of the university. But, after 5 years working at leading companies of the world, becoming a manager , what I have discovered is this is not the way I would like to live my life. If you want to be good at in your career, you should kick ass at work which means working longer hours than 8.30 am to 5.30 pm, not spending a single weekend without work, wearing masks when talking to people.. Also, I don’t like to work with managers who are not quality enough but have a right to evaluate your work.. Anyways, all these things lead you to have a life in which you even don’t know who you are because unconsciously you start to act according to the system.
After spending an amazing summer in Turkey in 2018 with many different amazing holidays, I found myself that I was continuously unhappy. Even though these wonderful holidays, my lovely small home etc, I wasn’t happy. These were my dreams years before, what was happening now? Then, I discovered that the job that I have was a thing which doesn’t contribute to the world in any means. I was just consuming something and make other people consume as well. I told myself I want to touch people’s lives. So that, I decided to become a yoga teacher. Because when first time I did yoga , it was such a beautiful feeling and it was the best thing that I did for myself until that time. Also, to learn how to appreciate, being thankful to your body I learnt it through yoga. So, I want other people to experience it as well and help them for it.
Well, that’s how I came up with quitting my 8 to 5 corporate job and becoming a yoga teacher..
It is not an easy thing to find what makes you happy in life? At least it wasn’t easy for me. But, think your life as project and spend some time to find an answer that will feed your sprit.
Thank you universe for helping me on finding my way!
