THE THREE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTIONS WHEN CHOOSING A CAREER

 
Before we get to the three most important questions, here are some other things to think about that will provide some useful guidance and infrastructure as you make your way through life. What do you care about? This question pertains to your interests, abilities, strong points, and passions. Once you pin these down, the right career may simply reveal itself to you. What do you want your lifestyle to be? From this question, you can get a sense of the amount of money you need to make. Where do you want to live? This question will eliminate some career options and emphasize others. At Highlight Career, we are there for you as you choose not just any career but the perfect career. Scroll down to find the three most important questions when choosing a career.
 
 

1. WHAT'S YOUR DREAM?

 
1. WHAT'S YOUR DREAM? You know it when you close your eyes. Blocking out every other concern and worry, you can see it for yourself. This question, more than any other, will clarify what you should be doing with your life and where you should be going. It will pull your career choices into focus, clearing up some of the confusion you may be feeling. If you are not sure about your dream, try to write some ideas down. Let your hand flow, showing you what your most natural thoughts are. Your dream may be something that you have been doing for some time, and it may be something that is completely new.
 
 

2. HOW MUCH WORK, EDUCATION, AND TRAINING WILL IT TAKE?

 
2. HOW MUCH WORK, EDUCATION, AND TRAINING WILL IT TAKE? Nothing worthwhile is going to come easy. When you have decided on a career, then you have to learn all about it. Immerse yourself in the information that is available. Scour every source, poring over your research until you have gone through all of the information that is out there and then looped back again. Will you need a degree? Will you need a mentor? Will you need to learn some additional skills? Will you be able to master any of those skills on your own? Every path will place different demands on you. Figure them out now rather than later!
 
 

3. HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?

 
3. HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT? Even if you are talented, even if you have been able to get by on minimal effort in the past, the best things in life are competitive. You are going to face some tough times, of course. We all do. In order to get what you want, to build the career of your dreams, you have to find your competitive edge. Rejection and failure are both inevitable. Still, pick yourself back up. Tell yourself that this time it is all going to work out for you. Show the world what an unstoppable force you can become when you feel motivated.
 

COUNTLESS CAREER CHOICES. MAJOR LIFE DECISION. WHAT'S YOUR DREAM?

 
Life is a series of forks in the road. You get to one, you take it, and you leave the other one behind forever. This is joyous, but it can be frightening too. Choices can be frightening – particularly when those choices weigh so heavily on the direction that our lives will take. Make your choices confidently, finding the career that is right for you, and it will all pan out in the end!
