Even when we are kids, we all have dreams of becoming somebody some day in our lives. Most kids would say that they want to be a doctor, a lawyer or a teacher but some would pick unconventional careers.
However, as we grow up, the path we follow may not necessary be the same as what we thought we would when we were smaller. There could be many reasons for this but, in the end all that is important is that you are satisfied with what you are doing.
Therefore, you should give priority to the following before choosing a career if you do not want to be switching jobs all your life simply because you are not happy with the work or you are too stressed out. Remember, people do not get stressed when they are doing something they love.
You know what you are capable of and what you enjoy more than anyone else in this world. Therefore, the decision should be made by you after giving it deep thought.
The things like whether or not you enjoy working with other people, whether you like reading books that are filled with facts, are you good at inferences, etc. can help you decide roughly on the fields you should be considering. If you are an introvert and do not want too much interaction with people, being a secretary may not be your thing. Further, if you do not like to have to do exams, are a bit lazy and does not believe in the extra effort required to be in the spotlight, do not consider careers such as law as even after you qualify you may need to enroll for HKMAAL mediation if you want to stand out.
List down your expectations of life
Once you have found out what you can and cannot do (or rather what you do not want to do), think about what you want from life. Do you want a big house with an expensive car or do you simply want enough money to live by comfortably without extravagances or do you want to help others without any thought about the personal benefits, etc.
If you are the really ambitious type, it would not harm to track down a good CLE provider at the beginning of the process as they may be able to make you ready for the journey ahead equipping you with further qualifications.
Now that you know what you are capable and what you want to achieve in life, it is time to find the equilibrium. This may not be as easy as said and sometimes you may have to go through a few jobs before you find it. However, it is easier when you know the right path to take.
Consider the careers that you are interested in that would allow you to attain your goals and start your journey. You may have to face ups and downs but, remember that nothing will stop a person once his/her mind is made up.
