Esports & Gaming Made Me The Person I Am Today

Opinion

Today marks the 6th year of taking the big step and a big risk, leaving my jobs behind and fulfilling my dream working in esports full time. The person I became today is indescribable. From a kid and a teenager with no purpose in life, not a business minded person, a joker to many to now a successful entrepreneur who’s making an impact on other people who found an actual purpose in life and finding the potential in others and make it useful.

Esports is not just a hobby or a game. it’s a way of life. For me, it has been a life-changing experience that has shaped me into the person I am today. Looking back, I remember struggling in school due to my condition, and constantly being labeled as the naughty kid. But even though I lost my confidence, I knew deep down that I had potential.

I had always been afraid to share my dreams, fearing that people would make fun of me as they did many times. I felt useless and couldn’t perform to my best in anything, until I discovered the world of gaming. It was my safe haven, and the place where I could express my creativity and passion.

Gaming opened up a new world for me. I delved deeper into technology and learned graphic design, web development, marketing and other skills that I needed to fulfill my dream. I balanced playing games with increasing my knowledge in technology, and soon after I turned 18, I started teaching in technology and kept on doing it for over 10 years. It was then that I found my true calling.

Gaming and esports boosted my confidence, and soon enough, I started playing competitively both locally and internationally. At the time, only a few had reached such a level, but I kept building on my dream of a huge industry in competitive gaming. Little did people know how huge this industry could be until today.
It wasn’t an easy journey, and many people didn’t understand my passion for gaming. But I believed in myself and my potential, and six years ago, I took a big risk and quit my jobs to fulfill my dream of working in esports full time.

Today, I can proudly say that I am a successful entrepreneur making an impact on others globally. Esports and gaming helped me find the potential in others and make it useful. Looking back, I am grateful for the opportunities that gaming and esports have given me. They have not only made me a better person, but also a better business man in many ways.

Esports has taught me that anything is possible if you believe in yourself and your dreams. It has given me the courage to take risks, to step out of my comfort zone, and to pursue my passions.

If you feel like you’re not good enough, just keep pushing forward in what you believe in. You never know where your passions might take you, and the person you might become in the process.
