In the 5th episode of Season 2, Arthi is joined by gest Dr Rosetta (Rose) Pillay, a woman who's journey to her purpose is filled with career changes and choices.
Rose shares context about her traditional upbringing and extremely humble background, with expectations around what her career should be. She boldly selected choices that were out of line of those expectations, and at times without her family's knowledge, purely because her innate sense of awareness guided her towards testing the alternatives that presented themselves to her. With each choice made, it opened up further decisions and pathways, some she rejected and others she took out of necessity, until she eventually reached what she calls the moment of finding her truth and her 'tribe', in the leadership and development space.
Rose shares a number of ideas on how we can walk away from the familiar trajectory while still feeling happy with that updated decision, and not allowing self doubt to hinder us. She reminds us to be kind to ourselves even on those days when you don't have the energy or will to be strong. Just attempt again the next day.
Rose remains motivated by her purpose and is invigorated by the words of Nigerian artist Yemi Alade's song Africa as she embarks on her new project on this beautiful continent.
Some wise words from Rose:
- "Decisions made for comfort are great and so are decisions made to stretch us. Ultimately, everything belongs"
- " Comfort and discomfort have the potential to bring us happiness"
- "Feedback is a gift...and has the power to deliver powerful transformation".
