What careers pay the most?

I would like to know so that I can force myself into the career.

Thank you comment icon Hi my advice is that money is important but should not be your decision breaking point. When you work in something you don´t like it becomes hard and bothersome. When you choose something you love, is never work. You go to work and enjoy it. Plus if you becomes the best at what you love, it will pay you a lot! Good Luck. Goldie Zomer

Dear Victory

This is a very relative question. Here are some ideas:

1) Medical professionals always earn a good living especially if you are a specialist, they are top earners like dermatologists, surgeons, pediatric surgeons
2) Pilots also earn a healthy living
3) Of course professional sportsmen and woman earn exponential living
4) If you make it in entertainment like actors and singers, your earnings are exponential
5) These days, influencers can also make a similar living - but you have to be very unique and have many followers
6) Finance professionals and lawyers still earn a good living
7) If you gain expertise in a unique IT/coding skill, you can carve out a nice niche to consult and earn a great living.

I think it is wise not to chase a career that has a high salary. Find what you love and be good at it. There are no limits today to your potential and reach so focus on what you love to do and see what jobs are in that field. Having a high salary won't make you happy, doing what you love and being passionate about a purpose, is what will make you successful (i.e. being positive, satisfied, content and constantly growing).

Last I checked, I believe psychiatrists were some of the top-paid professionals. However, they also had some of the lowest life satisfaction.

Hi Victory,

Many careers pay very well; it depends on the field, location, experience, how good you are, and how much visibility you have. For example, some people do car detailing and make more money than some engineers. You need to work hard and be open to learning the skills that will make you successful in any career you decide on.
Also, I have learned that is more important to feel happy and passionate about what you do than the actual pay.

Pay attention to whatever gives you the energy and motivation to keep going.

Start by asking yourself:
What are your skills?
What are your core values?
What types of tasks make you be in a state of flow?
Do you like solving problems?
Do you like teaching people?
Do you like advocating for others?

Knowing what makes you happy is the first step; everything else will fall into place after that (including money).

Good luck!

Joana

Look into Software Sales. You have the potential to make a lot of money and upcapped commission at many Software companies. Sales will be a lot of work but the harder you work the higher chance you have of closing deals and making money. Other jobs may have a high salary but they are only able to make their salary and not commission. This is where you can decide which path sounds best for you.

i would say look into the science field, nursing or medical field. Those are great potentials to build knowledge for the future. High paying jobs are jobs that require you to have at least a 4 year degree. Best of luck.
