Why did you leave?

Every time people ask about history, one of the first questions is “why did you leave” (place X)? This brings few reasons you left making one believe the place just wasn’t for you. In fact it works a bit differently. Leaving places means change, and change is most often for good. Change means you’ve been somewhere and you took your lessons. I remind myself the benefits of leaving by story telling about all I’ve learned. I’ve learned a ton from each and every place. There are hidden facts and stories, universal truths and lessons learned taken from every business, every place I’ve been to. Every success started with leaving something else in favour of a change. The lessons you’ve taken are there to stay and the most positive experiences work like investments. One is reminded the benefits every time those investments capitalise.
