What career path should I choose?

December 6, 2010 Leave a comment

I remember when I graduated from high school and it was time for me to choose a major, it was one of the most difficult and anxiety producing times in my life. As I mentioned before, I’ve always had a tendency to overanalyze everything, and having to make a decision that will affect the rest of my life, got to say, very complex.

I’ve had my shares of painful life experiences, but I’ve also been very fortunate to count with many blessings in my life. One that I thank God everyday for is my father. The best father anyone can ask for. He has always guided me and supported me in the best possible way. Perhaps the extreme admiration I have for him, has always added extra pressure for me to follow his brilliant example to productive living. I’ve learned and keep learning till today so much from him. If you are currently going through this crisis of not knowing what to do with your life, no more worries. I’ve been there and I got out of there. I’ll share with you my father’s words of wisdom.  

1.    If you do not know what to do with your life, THAT’S TOTALLY AND 100% OKAY.

It is really okay to be confused, we are only humans. In this wonderful life we have so many interesting and intriguing roads we can choose that it is normal and actually smart to take your time to decide what you want to do. If you recently graduated from high school and you have no idea what major to choose, my advice to you is to stay in school. Start with your General Education, elective classes that might interest you and that you will need to graduate from any major you decide to choose. Also, if you think you like something but you are not positive that that’s your real passion, get a part-time job on that field. Then you’ll have a better idea and understanding of what that career entitles and requires.  

2.    Think about talents you have that come natural and easy for you. 

I believe God gave us all different talents, and it is our duty to find them, cherish them and cultivate them. Sometimes society puts too much pressure on us when it comes to deciding on our future. The future holds what we cultivate in the NOW. It may take time to find your true talent, and that’s okay, as long as you cultivate it once you’ve found it, God will take care of the rest.

3.    Choose a career you’ll enjoy, not a career you were told will make you WEALTHY QUICK.

Although money can be really nice, that cannot be the sole motivator when it comes to choosing a career path. Once you’ve discover your passion and you enjoy what you do, success and money will come organically. Always keep this in mind:

SUCCESS WILL COME TO YOU WHEN GOD KNOWS YOU ARE READY FOR IT. If you know that you are really good at what you do and you work really hard but you are not being compensated the way you think you deserve, hang in there. God is watching you, He knows you are struggling, HE knows all your worries and fears, HE IS A FAIR GOD,  HE also wants to see that you trust HIM, that you have FAITH in HIM. Remember, FAITH activates GOD. He will show you the way you must simply always DO YOUR BEST.

4.    Always DO YOUR BEST  

Even if you are undecided about your major or your current job, in any given present situation, always do your best. When you are PRESENT and doing your best, you’ll always attract positive outcomes, because you are being ONE with the world. That’s what God wants from US. He wants us to find enjoyment in life. Deciding on what to do for a living is merely content ABOUT you, it is not YOU, it is not your ESSENCE.

Acquiring the habit of always doing your BEST, will always open doors and opportunities for you.

Society will always expect a lot from us, the only thing that truly matters is what GOD expects from us. What he expects from us is not much, but it can be challenging when we become extremely absorbed by the material world. He wants is to find happiness, true happiness, peace of mind and life enjoyment. Having the perfect job, house, car or relationship will never fulfill us. The material world can only bring us temporal happiness. It is a Universal Law that even if we do get all what we want from the material world, we will ALWAYS want MORE and therefore, we will never be fulfilled 100%.  

Be present and appreciative of what you currently have. Be enthusiastic in everything you do, ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST and GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF THE REST.  

Hope you’ve found this article helpful 😉
