“Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.”

Dream of a future when you can quote the above lines of the famous poet Robert Frost with a sense of pride. Remember the following while you choose the career you wish to traverse:

Please yourself before anyone else

You will find a sudden increase in the number of your well-wishers while you are on the verge of making a career choice for yourself. Each one of them would have different opinions to share and suggestions to make. If you make the mistake of considering each of their views, you will be left perplexed even more. Do remember you will never be able to satisfy all the people around you despite putting in the effort. So, please yourself and make the best choice for yourself. Your failure to live up to the expectations of your parents and disappoint them initially with the career path you opt, things would fall in place, and they would be ultimately proud to see you succeed. Hence stop worrying about others and decide for yourself.

Avoid following your friends

Having spent years together with your school friends, you might find it difficult to start a journey alone. You will find it convenient to follow your friends and take up the career of their choice. You should be able to judge yourself as precisely as possible so that you neither undermine nor overestimate your capacity. Make the correct choice without any influence of your peers.

Never make a hasty choice

Not knowing what to choose or where your interest lies is quite probable. But that does not give you the liberty to make a perfunctory choice and embark on it. Be considerate to make the right choice which you can deal for a lifetime. There is hardly any scope of giving up in the middle and starting fresh as such opportunities seldom come your way. So, invest your time and mind accordingly before you come up with your decision.

Do not allow your scorecard to dictate

Performance in an examination depends on various factors, and the marks that get imprinted in the result has a lot of influence as well. The examination result is extremely important now, but remember to value your interest and follow your passion. Your report card might contradict your goal, prove it wrong in due course of time by prioritizing your passion, and pursue it with diligence.

Be sincere

While you make a choice, commit to yourself that you will carry on with sincerity and never give up halfway.

Make the right choice now, so that you do not regret in future about the road you had not taken.
