Majority of the world populace do what successful people do in the bid to attain their level of success.
They follow every footstep and every measure to make sure it happened just like it did to them but in the long run, having wasted precious time and valuable resources, do find out that they’re not getting anywhere. That’s not what they love and so they struggle.
What do you love, what is your passion, dream? That’s what you need to pursue. If only you’ll stop chasing the passion of others and chase yours, you will succeed.
If you love taking care of the sick, pursue a career in healthcare. If you love upholding the law, pursue a career in that respect. If you love writing, then make a move in that direction. Do not say it’s too late. It’s never too late to follow your dream.
Do not go into any career because you see other people succeeding in it.
Kids should also be allowed to pursue the career they love.
My child once told me that he wanted to become a firefighter. I recoiled, looked at him and said, “please don’t say that to my hearing again.”
“Why” he asked but I had no reason. I had no reason to back up my assertion. Instead I asked him, “Don’t you want to become a doctor, a lawyer, a University lecturer?” I said this because I knew he had a brain that could fetch him any course, in an outstanding University and he said no. Firefighting is an amazing career, and I loved the way the rescuing officers put their life in the line to save others. I applaud them but never wanted to be one because that’s not my passion. But will I stand in the way of my child. I shouldn’t.
I have to allow my children follow their passion in life and make sure they acquired the necessary skill to help them get there.
The bottom line is follow your passion. Do what you love and achieve greatness the easy way.
