But he dreamt! He always found great interest in story-telling. And it was not just mere stories to him; that was something he devoured and kept close to his heart. He had literally quit his full time Job by then without thinking what his future would be? He launched his book “THE FLYING DREAMS” on October 5th 2018. In the destination of becoming an author; the first step is generally difficult. Suddenly, People are exposed to the uncertainties. Uncertainty is uncomfortable, but it also makes it hard to realize how fragile everything can get. One wrong decision and people may hit the rock bottom. This is the phase of trials. Without trying no one would get the taste of success ever; but their drive to fly high in the sky and go beyond the horizon of their inhibitions, will definitely make them achieve their flying dreams.

When it comes to achieving dreams, people may not necessarily triumph in the first endeavor. Sometimes triumph may seem like that distant cloud, you see it, but it never comes above you, perhaps it rains. This phase of tribulations can make anyone frustrated. It is challenging, but it is so worth it. This is the phase when you learn great values. There’s a saying that; easy success brings ego and slow success bring values. This is the saying to be preached. Yes, things may not go as per your plans. Things may turn bitter and you may also feel like giving up. It’s all natural. But the difference between ordinary and extraordinary is endurance. When you endure through these tribulations, you come out as a true winner with great values and character. A year back, Akshay Sharma found himself talking about his own business. The more he went on talking about his dreams, the clearer he could sketch his vision. And finally in February, 2019, he founded his own business, Mark-fly Digital Solutions, A Marketing/Ads Agency, where Music Productions are also done.

And in his opinion, that’s the greatest triumph one can truly attain. Akshay Sharma is now currently working on his next BOOK “A WRITER ON A MISSION”
