David C’s Answer
Anything that is worth going for is worth putting your all into it. That also applies to a career. You are not the only one who has not yet determined what type of career, or trade, you would be choosing. The first step is to think, "What would like to do if I had to choose something that I will spend the most of my life at?". Then ask "Would it be something I would look forward to each day?", "Will that choice provide me with enough money to provide a satisfying life?". The money does not have to be a lot, and it should not be what makes you decide on something that you may not be interested in. You will regret that if you do. If you start by answering those questions, then yes, it is worth it.
I would say my careers started off as being the captain of the majorette squad in 7th-12th grade. Today 40 years after high school I am getting ready to try to teach baton twirling lessons! I have been a medical transcriptionist for 27 years, and I had attended college in the 1980s and may get to substitute teach in the state where I live! EVERYTHING you do is going to culminate into your money making abilities one day and I am sorry to say I have found it seems THAT'S ALL ITS ABOUT! so yes I am SO GLAD I listened to my mother, took the fussing of my father to my mother about us from my Dad, listened to my teachers, paid attention to a saying "the early bird gets the worm! Money talks, loathing walks! Not saying my life is perfect but I am able to help my ownself and I am cool with that and thank my Heavenly Father. Because I was so steady in the things I did starting off with being captain of majorette squad helped me take care of my daughter. It was on me, I am MOTHER!
