“It’s very important to do what you feel you will be good at. If you are really good at something , I believe eventually you will succeed. It is important to try new things even if it means you might fail in it, or decide it’s not for you. That is way one you would never live with regret! I see friends who are working in a field only because they feel they don’t know how to do anything else, but I keep telling them you will be surprised at your own ability to adapt, only if you allow yourself the chance to do so. You will never learn to swim without going in the deep. ” – Karishma
