Finding a suitable profession is hard work. Finding a profession that you love is even harder. Simply because we are stuck in out compartmentalized thinking patterns (when it comes to jobs) and rarely step out of the box.
We are used to a set pattern of thinking. When we study we always have the mainline professions in mind. Every mother and father wants their kid to be a doctor, engineer, lawyer, teacher etc. The education system is such that we also target our curriculum to steer us towards the main careers that are accepted as prestigious by the society. But the truth is that every profession or job is prestigious and noble if you work with conviction and commitment.
Firstly you must explore what you are good at. What you like and what you are passionate about will really affect the way you perceive your job and how you perform in it. If you don’t like your job or what you are doing then you will have a negative perception towards it. When you have a negative perception towards it that means you will automatically see everything that is wrong with it and thus your performance will go down. When your performance goes down it is more likely that you will get shouted at by your bosses as well as the fact that co-workers will find it difficult to work with you. Then due to these reasons you will dislike it even more. Thus the vicious cycle will continue. So it is crucial that you first look in to yourself and find out who you really are and what you want to be.
You don’t have to choose all the main professions andareas of expertise. Let’s say you are good at writing and is creative. You don’t have to be a journalist or a book author. You can work for a digital content Hong Kong where they basically help their clients through content writing and other facilities to improve the public perception and client base.
They basically do digital content also like management of websites and social media. If you are in to web development and social media networking then you might want to look in to job in that area. So as you can see you don’t have to stick to the accepted standards of professions. You can chose your own.
What you want to be and what you are good at can be different. But that can be resolved. If you like what you want to be so much then you can work hard and acquire skills that will help you be who you want to be. On the other hand if you are good at something then your path can be easy and you can use your skills to the maximum level.
After you figure out what you want to be in life the next phase begins. The stage where you must work hard to acquire the skills, education and competency required of you for that job. The earlier you start the better prepared you are because the job market is very difficult to compete in.
