The 14 years of schooling, teaches one a lot of life lessons. It might be about basic life lessons, your career choices, or maybe even who your best pals would be, who would stand by you through thick and thin. But it does not stop just stop at that.
You have important choices to make. Those choices might even lead you to a totally different time zone. But, their’s no running away from it. It’s always good to keep a few pointers in mind before coming on a decision.
- No to Pressure– Never bulk under the pressure of doing maybe what is right. Do not come under the pressure of losing your friends, you will lose them. But, those who really want to stay with you would make an actual effort of being in it. Other’s will just hide under the excuse of not having enough time.
- Listen to your Parents– Listen to them, they have experience backing them. They don’t want anything bad to happen to you, or you to go downhill on your career path. Do not bulk under pressure. Just LISTEN.
- Listen to your Heart– It knows. Your heart knows, what you want, and the brain knows how to take your there. That small voice that tells you to catch that train, go catch it. Do not die thinking about the what if’s.
- Read & Research– It’s understandable that you are confused. Read about it, talk to people who have already taken such a career option. Talk to your teacher’s, it always helps to clear your nagging doubts.
- Make a plan B,C,D,E…..Z– There are 26 alphabets which means 26 different plans which can further be like your excel sheet. The reason behind having another plan ready at your disposal is, you are not the only one who might be running after a Harvard or the premier IIM’s closer home. For every you, you will find atleast 50-60 people more running for that same seat. Make plans,and never lose heart.
Making a career choice is a turnabout of your life. It will make you something, maybe not what you wanted to be, maybe something better. Never lose hope, never lose heart. Miracles happen each day. You just need to keep looking. It might sound odd at first, but 10 years down the line, when you look back you would realise that all the pressure and the stress you took, wasn’t worth a dime.
Wish you a very best in your career choices. You are a ROCKSTAR!! Kudos to you..!!
