how to choose the right career

Career is the path way that takes you to your future. Career is the one which decides your fate. Till now you may be dependent on your mom or dad or a friend, but the time has come to take decision on your wish. This is so specific to take your own decision because, it’s your career, and you need to choose it according to your wish. Not that your well-wishers will not get you into a right path, but, as they all are your well-wishers, they always think about your safety. In such case, you may or may not enjoy the work you do in future. Or it may also get you into a right path which is not capable enough for you. So, instead of you later blaming others for deciding your career or felling bad about your position in future, its best to take decision on your own and choose your career.

Something wrong happens to us because of others interference, we won’t spare them. But if the same or the more wrong happens to us because of self interference, then we will be ready to accept it and will even enjoy that pain. That’s human psychology, we cannot change it.

So, if you choose your career, let anything may happen, you will definitely enjoy your work and won’t even curse yourself or others for your position at that time.

When you take decision on your future, consider two or three options suitable to you.
Take to people who are already in that career. Do not talk to their parents or others; just take to the right person who is in that profession.

Keep in mind what all bad or good kinds might happen if you choose that option.
Then according to the good and bad effects of it, rank the options you have chosen before.

I don’t tell you to go with the first ranked option leading the other options behind. Never do that, consider the first ranked option, take further steps to achieve it and also simultaneously, take further takes to the two other options also. That’s just to be on safer edge.
