On Obstacles He Overcame
The biggest obstacle he has struggled with, and he thinks a lot of people struggle with too, is the urge to please other people and the fear of falling behind or simply trying to be someone they are not. There are so many influencers out there that people look up to, which he believes, is ruining their own values and beliefs. Which makes them lost.
Patrick urges people to define who they are, what they want to do, what they value and believe in and then rolling with it. He believes it is not healthy to compare ourselves to others because they have their own values and beliefs which most likely don’t align with ours. These people we look up to, he says, have done that. Which is why they are able to influence others.
His Words of Advice to the Youth
If there’s something you want to do, start doing it. If it’s starting a business, take that risk. Especially if you’re still young, you can take the risks that will pay you for a lifetime. Your future self will thank you for taking the risks today instead of putting it off. If you are not seeing any failures in your life, it means you’re not growing. Start taking risks, fail fast, adapt quickly and you will see results. Don’t think about what other people will say or do, define your own values, beliefs, passions and build something around it.
