Is Career a fog? fix it
If you are reading this article because you are confused at mind with regards to your career and struggling to fix it, well you have certainly landed on the right page. You will be delighted to know it's a normal phenomenon and there is no reason for you to get over-stressed about it. Often many people go through this struggle as reality does not meet expectations. Let me explain further.
In childhood, children grow up dreaming of what one wants to become. However, by the time they enter their teens, it’s an altogether different story. Some are clear in their head but often many are still confused as to what they really want to do out of their life. To chart, a career path can actually be a task. I wouldn't really blame one for being in such a state as many factors contribute to this state. Lack of clarity, lack of knowledge, parental pressure, and societal expectations can impact one's decision-making.
Make a note of the following
Nothing is easy
No matter what you choose as a career and no matter how easy it may project itself to you always remember you got to work really hard to achieve success.
Follow a passion
It's important that you really enjoy what you do. If possible choose a career that is closely related to your area of interest. If you are good at a hobby do give it over thought and evaluate to see if it can fetch you a full-fledged career.
Though I would love to say choose something you love to not many are privileged to enjoy such option. Sometimes, you're in a given situation where you're forced to choose between duty and love. Let's say If you or your family is burdened with financial constraints you definitely want to invest yourself into a prospective lucrative career that can monetize and yield good returns.
There are some bunch of people who love to explore new heights, crave for challenges, and think out of the box, do not even think if your one such, take the risk and venture out. There are a plethora of opportunities waiting for you to try your hands on. Consider entrepreneurship or freelancing whatever works for you.
Find a Mentor
There is always a source to draw inspiration from. What better way to achieve your desired goal if you can constantly stay motivated and focused. Get help if need. Follow someone who aces the field. Best practices always help you reach your goals.
Build a Network
The world is available to you at the tip of your fingers, make use of it. Use social media, get connected, exchange notes. Enroll yourself in courses, groups, and like-minded people in your niche. It surely helps. Expand your horizon.
Adulthood can also reflect a similar state of confusion. After pursuing a full-fledged career in jobs for many years one may experience a similar behavior of the mind. At a much later phase in life, you may often land yourself popping this question? This is not where you should be or not what you must be doing. I was one such person once upon a time. Believe me, It's perfectly ok to be in such a state. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Some things are not in your control, yet better late than never, one can still start again. Keep working. Success and Satisfaction will come your way. Just keep it going. Good Luck!
