How to Choose a Business or Profession That's Right For You
Many go into a business or career based on its expected financial returns. However, Money should not be the primary or only criterion. Here is what else to consider...
Many youths choose their business or profession based purely on the expected financial returns from such business or profession. However, when choosing your life-long business, career or profession, money should not be the primary or only consideration.
An important consideration is whether the business or profession suits your individuality, personality, ability, character and disposition. Will your business or career choice give you the opportunity to do the things you love and enjoy? Will it expose you to the people and work environment you enjoy? Will it task your abilities and intelligence, and help you flaunt your personal qualities?
Don't go into a business simply because you know someone who got rich in it. Don't get into a profession just because someone you know is doing well in it. The key to true success in any business or profession is being able to enjoy it. Choose your business or profession just as you would choose a cap or pair of shoes. In either case, the key consideration is: does it fit?
Discover your core values and the things that make you happy. Pay attention to your hubbies, interests and talents. Find out why they make you happy. Then develop your job, business, trade or profession around the things you love to do, and the people and environment you enjoy.
One sure way to business or professional excellence is to love what you do; and that can only happen if you do what you love. It feels good enjoying yourself and being paid for it! What better motivation can there be for anyone, than making money doing what they love?
When you make money doing the things you love, you are mentally and emotionally leveraged to be the best you can ever be. Such tremendous advantage opens the door to fame and fortune.
Recall your childhood interests. Do you have any special abilities or training? Do you have an idea that could develop into a full-fledged business? Don’t bury them! They point the way to fame and fortunes!
You can become rich by simply using your talents and abilities to make life better for people around you, through the provision of products or services that are in sync with your personality. Now, go find a need and fill it! See you at the top!
