How to Make the Right Career Choice

One of the scariest and most confusing moments in my life was when I was a teenager.

Then, I was unsure of so many things.

I wasn’t sure of the right time to start a relationship or not. Yes, I was confused. I remember asking a girl out on the day I turned 18 and broke up with her before it even started (exactly two weeks after). I was very conscious about my choices.

I needed a guide and a mentor but there was no good influence around me.

However, as the first-born (and son) out of a family of five with two brothers, I had to be a man and be a good influence on my brothers. My choices will affect my brothers’ choices either directly or indirectly.

One other thing I was confused about is the subjects to study and the career path to follow.

I initially wanted to study civil engineering as a child. I was fascinated with the idea of building roads and bridges. Then, as I grew older, I fell in love with computers. I decided to study computer science and engineering.

Along the line, I chose to study engineering physics (exactly 5 years after high school) since the concept is totally new to me and it is a subject that can only be mastered in school (so I thought at that time). The issue is that I am a practical person not a theory based person.

Studying Engineering Physics in the university (in my country) is all theory based. The course itself is a practical course but the institutions in my country lack the equipment to effectively teach this course to her students.

So, I was lost all over again.

I know that there are many teenagers and adults who are in the same situation as described above and are in a career which they don’t love. But are in it because it pays the bills.

There is a way out.

And if you are a teenager who is thinking about the subjects to study in order to start making money, you are at the right place.

You don’t have to go to college before you fill your head with the relevant information or before you start making money. You can earn your desired college degree from home and still make good fortune while you are at it.

The only thing you need to be successful in life is to fill your brain with the most relevant information and then put this information into good use (action).

The man who knows how will always have a job, but he will work for the man who knows why.

Professions are changing and many jobs are going to be much less necessary than we previously thought.

Think about it:

Everything, knowledge and ability that can be automated won’t be necessary in near future.Find a job that being a real person makes the difference.

Writing, music, arts, deep science (maybe) and entrepreneurship are going to be one of the fewer fields which apps and robots are not going to compete.

To choose a new career, try to think about something robots and software are not going to replace soon. It is going to be harder every year, but it’s still possible.

Some form of advanced training is mandatory because the people you wish to impress will ignore anyone who does not have the documentation.

Only jobs and tasks that cannot be easily automated will be relevant in the nearest future!
