Are you still asking this question to yourself even after graduating from college, having a job for more than years already but you still feel like you don’t know if its the right career for you or if you are heading to the right career path where you want yourself to be.
I did ask this question many times and even up to now, I still ask myself this question just to make sure I am heading to right career path where I want myself to be.
For some, even before they step foot into school, they already know the career they want to have because they have it in their hearts and in their minds who they want to be someday when they finish school.
Remember watching Little Miss Philippines in Eat Bulaga?
When I was a kid, I use to practice my answers to their famous question “Ano ang gusto mong maging paglaki at bakit?”
At that time, I would always answer the most popular roles most kids want to become when they grow up, either a doctor, nurse or a lawyer.
I thought so.
But fast forward, after graduating from high school, I was lost in what course I would take up in college.
I had no idea, none at all.
Or maybe because I wasn’t even looking forward to college at that time.
So I took up a course that most people say would make someone a lot of money.
I took up accounting. Just because I did not have any idea what the courses are and what career I really wanted if I graduate from college.
But I ended up shifting my course from accounting to marketing because I wanted to use my skills in marketing and I never saw myself doing accounting work after graduating from college.
And I’m sure there are a lot of students who are about to enter college who haven’t really planned out what career they would want to pursue after college.
For those who are not able to get into college either because of financial problems or by their choice, they are still wondering what their career should be considering the fact that they will not be entering college.
Its a tough question to answer and it took me a lot of time before I could finally have an answer that will direct me to the career path where I know I should be.
I know that my passion is to write and speak the thoughts that are in my heart and in my mind and I want to share it to so many people that writing and speaking is the only career that I am willing to sacrifice my time and energy just to deliver the messages that I want people to read and hear.
And this is exactly what I am doing now.
But what is more beautiful in my journey of knowing what my career should be is the presence of God in making me realize what He has created me for. My purpose in this life is to share His good news that He has great plans for everyone who believes and trusts in His son, Jesus Christ who died on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven and that we can have a ew life with Him.
I write not for myself but for God who has commanded me to use the talent and skills of writing to share His word.
I speak not for myself but for God who gave me the ability and confidence to speak in front of many people to present Him as my God and for His glory to be shown.
Whenever you face the same confusion that most people has on what their career should be, I suggest that you talk to God and ask Him directly to lead you into the career path He wants you to take because He is the only one who can lead you to where He wants you to be.
We may have a lot of plans on what career we want to have or what career path we should take but the Proverbs 19:21 says “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.”
To God Be All The Glory!
