Well, I should start with …..FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!
All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them and it requires full determination of hard work.
Rest all can be moulded and reset. After all, this life is yours and you have to decide what you want from it and you better know your strengths. As we know this is the era of great competition and exceptional talent, it becomes difficult to find your space in this cut throat competitive world.
One biggest drawback of our present society is the narrow mindedness regarding the courses and career options.
Some parents still force their children to opt for science and maths only. We, on the other hand, all victim of the peer pressure they put on us. And most of the times it results in choosing those options that may or may not lead us to our dream destination. In the worst case scenario, it can turn out to be two minutes noodles that too of bad taste.
Finally who suffers?It’s you!
As it’s not the question of days, weeks or months its the question of our life.
Specifically for the medical and engineering aspirants, I must say, have peace, stay calm. If this is what you really want then it’s okay to keep trying otherwise every trial is nothing but just a waste of time and your actual hidden talent. So buckle up your belt and get ready for a new ride in your roller coaster life. Because it’s time to come out from your shell.
There is no shame in choosing science as an option till 12th standard and not being able to handle it further.
If you do not become a doctor or an engineer.The world won’t end as there are ample of options you still have scope for like you can go for e.g BSc (Hons.) in different streams – physics, chemistry, Botany, zoology and much more. The realization of your skills and strengths is utmost important. If by chance this is not what you want in life then you must have the courage to face the reality and also enlighten your parents about it. Share your interests
1. Tell them what you want to be in your life
2. Which career option you want to choose
3. Share the scope of your chosen career option with your parents so that they become aware.
For example if you are interested in writing, you can choose doing English Hons. or journalism as a bachelor. These courses will open fields for you to emerge and bring exposure to you. As we know “Time is money” then why you are wasting it.
You might become successful and rich by earning money out of the course you did because someone else suggested you or your parents dreamt of. But what if that was not what you wanted to achieve, it might be enough to fill your stomach and house but what about your Soul? Will that be satisfactory in the long run? Will your work give you happiness, bring you joy? And if the answer is no, then stand for yourself, fight if needed and do what is right.
You get to live only once and make sure that’s worth it.
The basic step of making yours career is – “To Choose”.
It is important to know what the person actually wants and then to stand for it and keep working until the last breath. Giving up is not an option and fearing the consequences will ultimately lead to failures.
Life does not give second chances and there is no such thing as a backup plan. Because till the time comes when one realizes that they have chosen something wrong, it has already been too late. If one is sure about the future plans, then they can go for it or if they are taking risks then it’s better to choose what they want and not others.
Career Mapping is essential, once the career route is mapped one can pursue one’s career goals with full dedication. It will also help you to keep aligned with the development and changes. Choosing the right career for yourself transforms into professional success. It will make you satisfied with your job also.
If one does not wants to end up being just another sheep in the herd then they must not follow the path that is mainstream or cliche. Have the courage to know what is best for you. And also you can give your best to be the armour of yourself. This life is a one man war and you must be the only army that could win it.
