Joined 13 years ago from China
I was born in Brazil and moved to the US in the mid-'90s, America became my first loved country, a place where I was able to acquire all my major educations, a place where my kids were born and where I spent most part of my youth and adult life and a place to where I plan to move back someday and live the rest of my life in.
I left the US in mid-2011 and moved back to Brazil, back then I had two big reasons why I was doing that, to be closer to my extended family and to pursue a new career opportunity.
The family part was really great but professionally speaking, unfortunately, it was extremely challenging, however, I can not say that it was a waste of time because it wasn't, it was a period of great learning, adjusting and remodeling, brushing and polishing up my professional abilities.
In total, I stayed in Brazil for eight years and during these long years, I worked really hard in order to survive but since that improving and gaining experiences weren't taking me quick enough to where I wanted to be, I had to rethink about my life, career and happiness once again, I needed to put things into perspective again, and during the whole second semester of 2018 was exactly what I did and by November of the same year I had my plan well underway, so pushed it forward as hard as I could and guess what? I made it!!
While everyone was getting excited about Christmas and the end of the year festivities, I was focused on my plan and excited that I would start a whole new career in a new country with new opportunities.
Just a few people knew about my plan and I kept it that way until I had everything set and done.
Well, today, I am in China. I am working here as an English teacher for kids and teens. I have a very well paying job but the real reason behind my decision in coming to China wasn't just the salary, my major goal here is to learn Mandarin and become a much more valuable and scarce professional.
So, if you have dreams, I only have five words to tell you! Dream! Wake up! Review and Revise your dreams! Choose the most important one! Plan! Establish a written goal with a date to accomplish it! Work with focus! Never stop until you achieve it! Then you will conquer it!
