But choosing a career in your 20s…is like choosing the Future

Indeed, your career success is measured by the money you make. But just to look at initial earning for a career decision, not a good idea.

There are many other factors that also play a role in making career decision. 

For passionate people, money is not everything. Happiness is.

They feel complete in the things they like to do. Instead, forcing ownself to do.

Take your career choice seriously and make a wise Decision

In order to perform excellently in any career, the very first step is to take career seriously from right now.

In Sports, Movie or Business or any career, the industry leaders have chosen careers very seriously at a very young age or in their 20s.

And because of that, they are able to Attain that Expertise in their work.


It’s your career, Don’t copy other’s career choice

It may happen in school or college that, most of the students choose their career decision based on their best friends’ choices.

They be like My friend choose Biology and he needs my support there, so I will join him.

Don’t take this serious life decision based on temporary Fellings. Feelings don’t make your Future, your actions do. 

Take career decision as per your interest, your mindset, not as per best Friend’s.  


Make own career path, Don’t let others decide where to go

Remember: It is your life, your career, your path. So make their own career decision by own.

In many cases, career decisions are taken by the parents. Without knowing a kid’s interests and hobbies.

It is good if this is done as per the caring purpose, But it’ll be worse if done forcefully.

Parents also need to understand what their children want to become and what their life goals.

Sometimes they forget their children’s dreams and force them to achieve the goals. In which they failed. 


Perform self-evaluation to find Best career decision for you

Everyone in this world is come up with unique skill sets and capabilities.

A task which one can do very efficiently may be difficult for others.

And other termed that as a Weaknesses, without finding that the weaker person is great at something else.

So remember not to fit forcefully yourself in their definition of experts.

Evaluate yourself not only in terms of the educational marks but with your Practical mind, too.


Don’t force yourself to fit in career Box of others

We all are in the same life game, But at different levels with different Powers.

Don’t force yourself to live others life.

While making right career decision, we also need to identify personal interests and hobbies.

No one except you can give you an idea of what you really want.

Don’t try to prove yourself Right to others.

Understand your own weakness and Focus on what you are capable of.


When it comes to career, Don’t only focus on the current earning

If you are really dedicated to particular work, then make sure a low pay will not change your mood.

It may happen that you get a high paying job, but the work is not gonna improve yourself.

And also happen that you get a chance to do things you are passionate about, but with less pay than expected.

That time you need to decide between high paying job vs happiness.

You have to feel confident in own action first and just never Give up.

Ask yourself, Are you ready to sacrifice your passion, in exchange of the money.


Make a career choice that have a Potentials.

You may gonna end up doing the work that pays you a high amount of money at every month.

But also ask a simple question to yourself, Do you really want to see yourself doing this work for an entire life?

The answer itself reveals what you require in life. Only focus on that work that you want yourself doing for the rest of life.

Remember If you work for the money, then you will feel excited only at a Pay Day.

But if you are work for learning, for your passion then it’ll excite every day.


Get help from the leader, who help you to take a career decision

Your twenties are the time when you have to find that leader to whom you want to follow.

There must be a role model in life, with you at a young age. 

A good leader/role model will be the source of inspiration in your 20s.

Also a good mentor always examines you in a different situation and guides you for the better one.

They will not persuade you to follow them But will understand the gap between situation and personalities, and guide you accordingly.


A misunderstanding between College degree and Skills

Having a Degree and acquiring a skill-set is a different thing.

One may be holding a particular Degree, But end up with zero practical knowledge.

While on others, there is the one having practical expertise But have no degree to prove that excellence.

Simply having a Degree doesn’t describe yourself as an Expert.

You need to keep learning new concepts and a practical examination to acquire expertise in that career subject.

College degree never answers your career decision, Ask your inner-self.


Decide a career that improves your life.

A successful career is not only limited to a Good amount of money deposited in the Bank only.

Your career choice can be count as worthy also when it brings a positive change in your life when it makes you a better person than you were yesterday.

A good career not only fulfills your basic, security & Social needs But it also fulfills your self-esteem and Self Actualization need as well.

Choose a career that not fill your life only with money, But make yourself worth living while doing the work. 


What is the future of the career, you choose

Technologies change so the work patterns changes, so a worker also has to.

As per the technology changes, also keep yourself updated according to time and skills.

Learn new skills and improve technical skills for better cope with the change.

Before choosing a career also focus on what is the potential market of this work?

And prepare yourself for the career change it takes place in the future in your work.
