CHOICE MAKING – The Career Perspective


CHOICE MAKING – The Career Perspective

The very step towards success in any occupation is having interest in it and above all being passionate about it.Most Africans take the word ‘passion’ for granted when they are about to make decisions concerning their future career paths.To them,the only motivation they have at the back of their minds are: how much would that job pay?, What other benefits would I enjoy? Or  probably, what level of recognition would I attain in the society I find myself? These are the most important questions every African child seeks answers to before finally deciding on the  glamorous path.

When you begin to have these as your first thoughts,you should understand that you’re about threading on a wrong path which would only lead to failure in the end. Mostly, we are blinded by the luxurious lifestyles led by those we look up to in a particular profession.Be it the cars they drive,the mansions they live,the clothes and accessories they put on and most especially the manner in which they are praised and recognized during gatherings and so on.

Even when we have an inner conviction that what we admire and aspire to become is not what we are meant to become,we keep taming our minds and keep convincing ourselves to come to terms with what we claim to be ‘our dream come true ‘. Have you ever wondered why so many musicians get lost in the music industry after their first single or album? Or why up coming moving actors or actresses get  missing from our TV screens? Or why many writers get lost after publishing their first book? Of course there may be other reasons but most of these people lost sight of what they were meant to be in life.They are mostly not the gifted people they claim to be but are only into that particular field for fame,money or other selfish reasons best known to them.

Note that it takes a passionate heart, a hardworking person to make a successful career.Never base your decisions mainly by observing how lucrative a profession looks or appears to look.Follow your heart desires,believe in the decisions you arrive at after critically analysing your options and have interest in the occupation you arrive at.Its only then and then would you find victory and the satisfaction you long for.

  1. Beautiful and inspiring posts. Its interestingly obnoxious to allow oneself to be swayed by others accomplishment. The truth however is that we are no them and they are not us. Apostle Paul in one of his epistles mention the fact that we ought to be running a our outlined race not a competitive kind of race. Its easy to get carried away from the competitiveness that only lead to dissatisfaction and unfulfilled life.
    Paul said “Oh, that I may apprehend of that which I am apprehended of” which means I’m trying to run my own race according to the drum beat I hear inside of me.
