I was searching abt my future and I saw Jay shetty in some topics and videos (motivation and etc…) I have known him before but after reading his biography now it seems like knowing the purpose of living, the truely fact that relies behind the world, questioning our selves why we borned? Who created us? Is there any duty for us in this world? These questions must be normal for every individual but the point is that every individual must own his own spirit and got motivated from the famous and successful people on media! For me from my point of view I am on the edge of understanding the world, learning from successful people and having my experiences.. My dream to be a scientist in the field of medicine, be with my family, leave an impression on this world later. I am 17 years old living in lebanon, born in Romania.
indeed you are prophet, I always read your motivation and inspiration quotes and video which is always make me a better and bigger person on earth, continue in good realising and god will always be in your side. thank you .

I’m very confused in choosing my passion and what kind of life I want, I had my break up I was literally shattered and I was suffering from mental breakdown’s, seizures, depression, stress, anxiety. My doctor puts me on medication for mental illness, One day I came across by jay Shetty videos on youtube. I have known him before and after reading his biography now it seems like knowing the purpose of living and slowly I came out with this sort of things. Daily am learning about life and it’s purpose and daily I am listening jay Shetty’s podcast and watching his videos then I decided, I want to be like him I want to be the next jay Shetty. I want to motivate people, I want to help people who are suffering from breakups, failures, and who are suffering from mental health like stress, depression, anxiety, etc. I have not met him before but he is my inspiration, mentor, role model and he will always be And I’m sure I will meet him as soon as possible. Daily I am working hard, reading books, and improving my skills. Thank you very much sir, you will always be my role model and I am glad I came across your videos and podcasts, it helped me a lot to come out my depression. Can’t wait to meet you sir I will try my best to meet you. Finally, I found my passion and every single day I am working on it. Love from India ❤
