How To Choose A Successful Career
Have you ever thought?
Modern medical science has produced millions of doctors, but not a single Successful person. Why??
- Why are our intelligence and creativity overwhelmed by degrees?
- Why are so many doctors and engineers unemployed in our society?
- Why does a highly educated degree holder often become an employee of a less educated businessman?
What is a career?
According to the Oxford Dictionary:
A person’s “course or progress through life (or a distinct portion of life)”.
That is a person’s lifestyle or the career that a person chooses to lead a successful life is called his career.
If this is the way of life of a person, then he’s thinking, his knowledge and skills, his intellect and wisdom, his skills and abilities, and his strengths and weaknesses. All of these components together can shape his or her lifestyle, but the development of all of these components requires education and training. Therefore, it is not possible to achieve a better and standard lifestyle without proper education and training.
Choosing the right career is the decisive step that can change your quality of life. But this decision requires a lot of thought and in-depth analysis. Broader information and an accurate understanding and analysis of your skills and abilities can help you make the right career choice.
According to a 2010 survey:
- More than 60% of workers are not satisfied with their work.
- 60% of people say that if they get a chance to start again, they will choose another field.
- 20% of people think that they did not get the role in life that they could have played better.
- 30% of professionals think that their abilities were more suitable for another profession.
- 51% of people regret their career choices.
- Only 20% of people seem satisfied with the nature of their work.
However, it is worth noting that according to a survey conducted in 1987, 60% of people were happy with their profession.
The above figures are from a survey conducted globally, focusing more on Western society, where regular career counseling institutions are established and a sea of information flows.
A country like Asia where the literacy rate is less than 50% and career counseling does not have the status of a regular institution. The matter looks even more serious.
Elements that influence career choices.
About 70% of the population of our country lives in rural areas, where the trend of change is very less in line with the changing requirements of the time. In such an environment, people prefer their native profession or business rather than choosing a new field or source of income. However, the same principle is mostly followed in cities for career choice. So this is the first factor that influences a student’s career choice.
An individual’s personal tendency or hobby also affects career choice. For example, if a person is interested in sports, and has all the potential to be a good athlete, then he will definitely try to choose this field.
A person’s environment, culture, and civilization are the important elements that affect the environment because civilization and culture form our thinking, and this thinking is the reason for choosing a career.
The obsession with making money:
Often the obsession with making money also affects every choice of profession. So the person who wants to be rich prefers business to a job.
Any ability bestowed by nature often leads to the choice of a particular field. For example, a writer is naturally a writer, whether he strives for it or not.
Situations and events:
In our country, the choice of a field is often not made with forethought or regular planning, but with circumstances and sudden changes.
