Decide Your Career
What do you want to become? What will you do in future? How will you take care of yourself in future? Your family is full of doctors, lawyers and businessmen, which profession will you choose? You need to decide your career and choose a career right for you.
These are some questions which can actually kill us (not really). These questions have the potential in them to completely destroy the happy moments. These are the questions which everyone tries not to face, but eventually, our family and relatives do the good work. Just like I encountered these questions the other day. My parents asked me what do I want to do in future, discussed about my cousins who are doing great because they knew their choice of career, and I? I was eating chips. ?
And that hit me hard.
They’re not wrong in their place. Everyone wants their child to be happy and successful in life. Parents want their child to have a secured profession and a secured life.

While thinking about career choices, we all ponder over some basic things like how much will I be able to earn? Will it be enough? Will it give me satisfaction? But we think only a little about what we’ll do because most of the times we either do as the family and relatives say or under peer pressure.
It’s time to read and ponder the following questions so that you can easily decide your career.
1. What’s the thing that can make you totally engrossed in it, that you can’t see anything beyond that?
Is it reading, writing, cooking, photography? The options are endless.
2. What sacrifices/struggles are you willing to tolerate?
Sacrifices/struggles are an important part of our life and that at some point in time, everything sucks. So you need to be tolerant towards these testing phases.
3. What was that childhood habit you used to have, but later you stopped doing it completely?
Does thinking about that habit makes you sad? You just stopped doing it because nobody paid attention to that, and you thought of it as a waste of time. Think again.
4. You’ve only one life. No extras. What’s your legacy going to be?
What should be the thing you want others should remember about you? What will be the reasons for people missing you?
Remember to be happy and content with your life. And don’t forget to ask people how they doing, instead of what they are doing.
