Welcome back everyone!I hope you all are perfectly fine and healthy.Today I have an amazing article for you all and it is HOW TO CHOOSE A CAREER THAT IS BEST FOR YOU?So lets get started.
What do you want to become when you grow up?I think this is the most frequently asked question from you till you enter your university.I have even seen some people asking this question from children who have not even started their school yet.Anyways choosing the best/right career can be very tricky.You will have to consider a lot of things before you makeup your mind.
It is very important to choose the best/right career AND should be selected by the person himself.Everyone should be allowed to decide what they want to do in life,what they want to be and what are they interested in.Not everyone is born to be a doctor or an engineer.But yes,there is another story and that is the parents force their children into their (parents’) desired profession.It wastes the ability of their children and their work seems boring and distasteful to them.They do not enjoy their work at all(Of course).However,it’s another topic.Let us get back to our topic.
Before I get started on how to choose a suitable career,I want you to keep few things in your mind that are listed below;
#1 DO NOT SUBSTITUTE YOUR HAPPINESS WITH A TITLE
Success is not the key to happiness,happiness is the key to success.If you love what you do,you will be successful.Choose a career that makes you happy AND do not think your happy life is tied to a doctoral or maybe an engineering degree.It’s not the title that makes you happy,it’s the satisfaction that makes you happy and the satisfaction is that what you are doing is absolutely right.
IF IT DOES NOT ADD TO YOUR LIFE,IT DOES NOT BELONG TO YOU.
#2 YOUR ABILITIES ARE NOT BOUND TO ANY PROFESSION
Isn’t it? you will be you even if you are a doctor or a teacher.If you are positive and skillful you do not need title to express it .If you think you will be successful only by being an engineer or doctor (etc) then you are definitely wrong . Do not force yourself into something by just its attractive title.Believe in me you will be very successful even if you are a teacher ( or if you belong to any other profession ) if you are loyal to it and you work hard for it.
#3 working hard is the key
When I was in 10th grade there was a chapter in my book which was about the life of a man who was a gardener (and it was a real story ) in which the writer (the owner of the gardener) tells us about the hard work and dedication of the gardener .Now imagine that gardener was absolutely illiterate. But his dedication is being discussed in book even after about 100 years of his death.Now I am not saying you to stay illiterate and think that you would reach some where. No, what I want to say is that your degree alone is not enough to be successful but everything requires hard work.The only way to your destination is constant hard work.WORK HARD and one day you will be there where you wanted to be.REMEMBER
So now without any further delay,let’s choose the career that’s best for you.
#1 KNOW YOUR INTERESTS
The very first thing is to know your interest.Forget about the title and all,just focus and think that which subject brings you the highest score,which is the subject that you enjoy studying.I am saying this because I have seen some people who are confused even during their college and do not know what next.
#2 DO WHAT YOU WANT TO AND NOT WHAT YOU SHOULD
After you figured out your interest,forget what others tell you to do.Now you know what you want to do,so stick to your target.Explain yourself why you want to do it,this way you will be more satisfied that you have made the right choice.
#3 NOW WHAT IF YOU CAN’T FIGURE OUT YOUR INTEREST?
Hmm,that’s really a challenge.Here,you can seek the advice of someone,it could be someone who is very understanding,may be your teacher and of course your parents.Just tell them about your common interests,about your ideals,likes and hobbies and hopefully they will help you out in figuring out what career you should choose.
#4 USE INTERNET
If you are still confused to choose the best and right career,may be you don’t know about many career options.The world has really progressed a lot and there are many many options out there.And to know them you need to consult to what you are using right now.Yes, you are right,it’s INTERNET.Use internet to find different career option.
#5 EAT THE FROG
Do not worry I am not asking you to eat the real frog.Eating the frog means that do the worst thing first.I mean that when you decide to do something then no hardship should stop you,just accept the challenge and prove yourself,no matter how much efforts are required.
Work really hard because hard work is the only key to success.Push yourself because no one else is going to do it for you.
One of my favorite quotes is
Push yourself.Don’t doubt yourself.Be confident.Hard work is always paid off.
TIP TOP TIPS
- Dear great parents,kindly let your children decide their career according to their own wish.They definitely need your guide and you should guide them but do not force them into something they are not willing to do.
- Believe in what your heart says not what others tell you.
- Take the decision carefully,after all its the matter of your life.
- Once you have decided don’t doubt your abilities.Changing your plans again and again will confuse you even more.
