Having a difficult time in deciding which career path to take?
Ever heard of a story about somebody whose childhood interest grew comfortably into a career? Like a kid who always messed around with his dad’s computer, grew up and pursued a career as a programmer; or a little child who portrayed utter fascination in drawing and creating new things, which led her to the path of being a designer.
But the truth is that, it doesn’t happen for most of us and we end up taking the wrong career choices. The reason behind this is that, we often look at others’ career choices with envy, thinking that they are going in the right direction and in the process we forget to actually think about what we want to be when we grow up. By the time we have to take a serious career-decision for ourselves, its already too late.
Here are the reasons why you are having difficulties in choosing a career that suits you:
- You don’t know what your interests are.
To have a rewarding career, it is necessary for you to recognize what activities, topics or environments interest you the most. Ask yourself – “What do I love doing the most?”. Identifying these topics will tremendously help you in making a proper decision as it focuses your career search and gain deeper insights into your area of interest.
- You know what you like but not sure whether its okay.
This happens not because of the lack of knowledge of what you want to do, but because of the people around you, who tend to make you feel what you like is not acceptable or possible. Often when this happens, you forget what you truly want and try to conform to other people’s expectations.
So what is the solution?
The core solution is to have the right mindset and surround yourself with the right kind of people, who will naturally accept who you are and what you want to be. Realize what you truly love doing and what you aspire to be and what appeals to you the most.
Be open. Remember your values and don’t be afraid. There are innumerable opportunities out there. All you have to do is “discover” what you love!
