What we have highlighted above discusses in a nut shell the major drivers of our career choices. Am sure you fall somewhere at least!
Life is quite interesting. As you navigate through the different stages of life, career stage pops out as the most fundamental. As adults it defines the rest of our lives. Choose wisely is the advice. Gone should be the days parents when parents dictated career choices for their sons and daughters. It left one with the bitter burden of having to contend with whatever was put on the table against their wish. Career experts came in as points of reference just in case one found it hard to choose between conflicting careers. They too earn from that! Whatever you do so long as it is in line with the laws, you enjoy it and it attracts some income, that’s your career. Cultivate it. After school many choose to deeply pursue careers. Some go entrepreneurship to be their own bosses. Others choose to go JOBS – Join Other peoples Businesses. Whichever the direction you settle for its your profession depending on the amount of seriousness and commitment you deploy.
As we grew up, school was fun and our hopes were high. We only wished to be Doctors, Lawyers, Pilots though the list may not grow any longer than this. Its because our elders mis-lighted these as the top cream careers in society at the cost of other probable career options. We ignored our talents and all that would suit us in pursuit of societal desires. However the beauty behind it is that as we grow up, these wishes fade into dreams. Dreams that are workable. They thus crystallize into future careers. A path we must follow with enthusiasm.
