What career path is the right one for you? How do you know if you’re going in the right direction?
So, what do you want to be when you grow up?
You heard that question all through childhood. It became a serious question in high school. Yet the answer to that seemingly simple question is not always clear, even when we reach adulthood.
Many factors influence our career path, including our natural strengths and talents, our hopes and dreams for the future, and unexpected opportunities that arise along the way — or not. It can be difficult to distinguish outer pressure to succeed from inner ambition. Even if you are firmly established in your profession, you still might wonder if you’re on the right career path or if there is something more you could be doing with your life.
