What Kind of Career Should You Pursue?

Many of us wanted to be actresses and astronauts when we’re kids, but as we head toward adulthood, it all changes. Others may have had dreams of a more humble or practical life, and that’s okay too. Some of you may continue on to pursue your childhood dreams, but others may be left floundering. ItShow More

Many of us wanted to be actresses and astronauts when we’re kids, but as we head toward adulthood, it all changes. Others may have had dreams of a more humble or practical life, and that’s okay too. Some of you may continue on to pursue your childhood dreams, but others may be left floundering. It’s also okay to not really know what you want to do for your career right now. Afterall, ideally, your career is something you’ll be working in and building on for the rest of your whole life. That can be overwhelming to think about.

Think about all of the things that inspire you. Is it music? Is it art? Is it movies? Is it skyscrapers? Is it computers? Maybe it’s something totally different. Now think about why those things inspire you. Do you think pursuing that as a career could you inspire you even more? Maybe you’d love to work in that field so that you can give people the same inspiration that you receive when you see those things. Regardless, maybe you’re the type of person that wants to work in a field similar to the things that inspire you most.

There are also those of us who love a multitude of things but have absolutely no interest in pursuing them for ourselves. Loving cars doesn’t mean you want to be a mechanic anymore than loving food means that you want to be a chef. Then of course there’s the reality that sometimes we just aren’t cut out to fully pursue the things we love. Maybe you’re relatively skilled but being a professional athlete is still something that few have the physical and mental stamina for. Maybe you love to see beautiful plants and flowers but just don’t have the green thumb necessary to keep a greenhouse or farm.
