C for Choice, C for Courage and C for Career

The three C’s choice, courage, and career are one of the most important things in human life. If handled properly it can change the entire life of a person and let him achieve his goals and ambitions. Some boys were playing near a temple tank. Suddenly one of them slipped into the tank. Other children started shouting and people started gathering. But none among them could be bold enough to get into the water and save the drowning boy. After a few moments, a well-built man was seen jumping into the water. He saved the boy from drowning. The boy’s father thanked him for his act of courage and said, “what sort of price do you expect from me for your boldness?”. The man replied, “First tell me who pushed me into the water from behind”.

Like the man we all are clueless about what we are capable of doing, a push into the river made him realize he could save someone from drowning. “..for we are as great a mystery to ourselves as we are to our neighbors.”

Sometimes, we are so attached to our way of life that we turn down wonderful opportunities because we simply don’t know what to do with it. There have been times when we come to a standstill. Before us lies a question ‘To do or not to do?’.

Our choice, courage, and career have the power to shape our future. We define ourselves by the choices we make. The risks we decide to take make us brave or cowards, by making a choice we make a difference and by letting the moment pass we decide to leave things as they were. These famous lines by Robert frost hit the right strings:

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both….

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Robert frost

With the choices we make be get complimentary consequences. No path you choose will be easy, they have an equal share of perks and prills. So choose what you think you can do best. Remember these golden words,

If you dare to dream nothing is impossible, and if you dream to dare you are invincible.

Choosing your career options is vital and it’s a life-changing decision. Doing something because the majority of them are doing, putting the logic they can’t be wrong is the biggest mistake you’ll commit after which it will be hell difficult to set yourself free from those chains. No one knows what he will become just after passing 10th or 12th boards, and if you feel the same then its absolutely normal. Just by asking simple few questions and following a few steps you can get the answer.

Not everyone gets a golden chance to pick out the best for themselves from multiple options provided, make the most of it.

  • Ask yourself why you want to pursue this subject or make a career in this field?
  • Do a research of the topics it covers and the job options it opens
  • Find something “ orange is the new black” kind of thing, there are plenty of options available which are not yet famous but hold potential.
  • Don’t do the rat race stuff or settle of anything less its already a short life why make it shorter, live it large, hold on to your passion and turn a deaf ear to comments. It’s a complete lie people who advise you this they themselves have never tried.
  • Make your decisions, by playing to your strengths, the job culture is shifting slowing the more creative and passionate you are the more in demand you become.
  • success takes time, and no matter what whichever path you choose you will get cuts and scratches its inevitable.

And lastly, do thorough research, use the internet, meet people, visit professors get a clear picture and then jump into the battleground. May the odds be in your favor! All the best for your future!
