I thought I would set up a blog page on all of the things you need to know about choosing the right career path. I decided to do this as when I left school, I really struggled in terms of ‘what to do now!’ and then I started to panick. I lived next to a kitchen showroom so I thought I could always start working there and make my way up to manager.
But, because I panicked, I got further and further away from any education plans and I started to lose interest in finding something to do. I became more interested in what I was wearing and what I was going to do tonight! So, I definitely needed to change something!
Throughout school, I was one of those people who never had any idea what I wanted to do! I wasn’t one of those people who knew from day one or one of those people who had a passion for something that I loved and wanted to do for the rest of my life. All I kept thinking was… ‘one day, something will come my way and I will do it forever’… but that day never came!
After having left school for a whole year (I called it my well deserved break) I realised that the ‘bank of dad’ wouldn’t always be acceptable to use and I had to get my own money! After all of my friends had already done another year of education or work, I was never able to do the things they did as I had no money of my own!
I started to search for jobs going locally to me and I ended up getting a job in my favourite local pub just down the road from me. I absolutely loved it in their but I knew it wasn’t going to give me the life I desperately wanted!
What I was trying to explain to you in this blog is that, things don’t always go to plan right away, but please don’t make the mistake I did and waste a whole year on worrying about what you’re going to wear to the next party! Don’t just work in the local pub! Aim for the highest and make sure you achieve it, ten fold!
Look out for my future blogs on all types of opportunities and wisdom! Thanks for reading 🙂
