There comes a time in our life when we ask our-self “What the hell am I doing ? Do I want to continue with this career all my life ? Is it really what I want ? Am I happy with the direction my choices are taking me?”. If you have been through this phase, then you know it is not a walk in the park. If you are going through this phase then you are well acquainted with the felling of instability and loss of confidence.
You are not alone
Some people are lucky enough to land their dream job right after graduation and be sure of their career path. May be you are not one of them, but you are not alone. There are so many other out going through the same indecisive phase.
Take you time to decide what career to pursue. Take a gap year, volunteer, travel, EAT PRAY LOVE. Explore you passions, interest, hobbies. Take time to curate your life and listen to your heart.
Just breathe by Anna Nalick is one of my favorite song. Some times all you can do is just breath. Don’t let societal pressure to pursue a full-time job as soon as you graduate drive you nuts.Your happiness matters and only you can find your way to happiness.
No don’t change who you are at least not to fit into a job you really don’t like.Embrace yourself, it will make the process of finding a career that suits you better so much easier. Define you won brand of success. What is success to you ? What do you want to achieve in a year or 5 years ?
Don’t loose your motivation .
The most important thing ever. Don’t loose you motivation just because you are not sure which career path to choose. Once you figure it out, you will learn a lot about yourself and difficult situation.
Remember “Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”
