Force - Career (part 2)
Updated: Jul 1, 2020
Hey guys! Hope you all are doing great as winter has started to hit the UK. Hope you all had related thoughts reading my post from last week. As you all know already, this is a part 2 continuation to my previous post.
Career - Forced career, Unhappy career and frustrated life. All means the same thing. How many of you remember the time when becoming a doctor, engineer or an accountant was the sole option given to children. If the child wanted to pursue his/her career in a different path then he or she will be looked at as the most unplanned, irresponsible child in the world. Also, the child's family would be looked as a irrespective family in it's society. It has become considerably lengthy that people have forgotten the core reason for bringing up kids that way. It has become so competitive between the society that parents have forgotten to tell their children that these careers were only picked and suggested for them for the better of their future. So that they could earn money and live life to the best, as these jobs were considered as the money making jobs.
Hence, hey guys! That's not the case anymore. It's not about making money anymore. It's not about how many doctors or engineers you are surrounded by. It's about how successful you are as an individual. It's about how many other individuals you inspire by doing what you love. When I was a kid my parents wanted me to become a Doctor, but when I became older thinking back in life that wasn't what I wanted to do. I wanted to be a business woman. 9-5 jobs may sound boring to many of you,
but that's what interested me.
It was not about the simple 8 hours spent in an office, but what was put in to that 8 hours for me to reach my goals not only in my job, but also in my life too. Now that I am working towards being an accountant and studying for it, I don't find it difficult nor boring doing very similar things for many months now. I highly think this is because I simply love what I do. I didn't do it for anybody else, but for me!
In India, Kota, in 2015 - 2016, 57 young adults including 17 year old Kriti Tripathi committed suicide due to being forced to pursue engineering by her parents, even tho she had passed her JEE exam (necessary exam to qualify) with a top grade. This is very common in the Asian society. Coming from an Asian background me, my sibling, cousins and many others that I know of are very lucky to be allowed to pursue our own dreams, dreamt by us and not by anybody else just us! But, that’s not enough! Every child deserves to be given a chance to prove themselves!
If you are now working a job for the happiness of another person, and that you're not happy about, is it really worth your time and effort? That person may have pursued what they wanted to do or will do it in the future and feel happy about it. but YOU? if not now, then when? When are you going to look in to your wishes? your dreams? your ambitions? Do you think doing a job, to satisfy someone else is a short term commitment? No! It will go on for many many years. Start living your own dreams and become successful enough to prove yourself. I know you can do it! If i can then you can too.
Work a job that you love, so that you don't have to work a day in life!
Good day guys!🌻
