Diary Of An Aviation Entrepreneur – My Identity Crisis

My name is Tarisai Tara, the co-founder of  Yadley.com. I am an aviation entrepreneur, writer, friend of God and citizen of the world. This is my story…

At some point, we have all had what scientists term an ”identity crisis”. It is that insanely painful time in your life when it dawns on you that you don’t have it all figured out and you have no idea what to do about it.

Whether it is the failure to decide on what to major in at school or what profession to settle in or even the kind of crowd to hang out with, it is the most uncomfortable place to be. I have certainly been there numerous times in my life, and it doesn’t help when family, friends, and finances seem to add to the crisis.

Many of us made up our minds about what we would become many years back: pilots, flight attendants, the list goes on. Our dreams and hopes gave us an identity, they gave our life meaning. Sadly financial constraints and all sorts of challenges caused us to change direction and we ended up questioning and aborting the passions and dreams that we carried in our hearts for so long. Having lost our dreams and the passion with which we identified we ended not knowing who or what we are.

Life has a way of diluting childhood dreams with ‘realities’ i.e death of parents, the scholarship that never happened, lack of capital or inadequate qualifications, the list goes on. 

But, what matters first and foremost is for you to know, really know, who you are and what you are about. If you are sure of these two things no matter what life throws your way and no matter how long it might take, every one of your wildest dreams will come true.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9
