Hello all my amazing readers,
Happy Super Soul Sunday! As I do almost every Sunday, I look back and reflect a little on the past week and try to gather some lessons I have learned.
This week something that was on my mind was whether or not I have made the right choice in my career path and how to align my personality with my purpose. Growing up I was always told that the three most desired careers are in; medicine, law or engineering, this was something that was heavily repeated to me as a child, especially in my family.
Of the three-desired career paths, I chose none of them; don’t get me wrong I really tried. When I first started university I was in sciences and soon after concluding my grueling and what seemed like torturous 4-hour labs, I knew this was not the career for me. Engineering was never even an option for me; I honestly could not ever take on that kind of mathematically heavy study focus. Finally, I tried my hands at law and studied my damn hardest for the LSAT. During the study for the test, I just knew that I really did not want to be a lawyer. This was hard for me to digest, of the three acceptable careers in my family, I did not want to do even one of them! So I have chosen the uncertain territory of marketing/business in the hopes that one day I will have my own business (actually Empire lol, dare to dream big!).
As hard as it is, sometimes you just have to follow your intuition so that you can fulfill your life purpose.
“the truth is I have from the very beginning listened to my instincts. All of my best decisions in life have come because I was attuned to what really felt like the next right move for me.” – Oprah Winfrey
Not all of us are meant to be doctors, lawyers and engineers. As much as I tried to resist my own intuition and personality, at the end I simply couldn’t ignore it. I simply didn’t have the personality nor the desire for any of those careers and therefore I don’t think I would have been very good at my job if I had taken those paths.
Honestly, it’s not easy, often times I am scared that I don’t have enough education or credentials. Other times I am not sure where or what the future holds for my career. With all that said, I am still so excited though, for the chance I have to fulfill whatever my life purpose is meant to be. Scared yes, but very very excited to one day (hopefully) have something I can call my own.
Let me know what you guys think! How did you come to choose your career?
~ Sending you all lots of love and positive energy~
