How do I become successful in life like my parents and siblings, without going down the same path they went down?
My parents and siblings all went down the marketing path and have successful jobs and companies. I am leaning towards other things but feel like I can’t be successful in life if I don’t follow what they all did.
This is a great question! The only thing I would recommend is to follow and fully concentrate on what makes you happy, and what personally you think would enjoy 20 years from now. I know for many that this is a hard topic. Many look for a career that will earn them the most money, when in actuality, it may not make them happy. If what you do and love go hand-in-hand, then that is all that should matter.
It can be hard, especially in this case, when your loved ones and family members have a such great careers. However, you should not compare yourself to them as you are your own being and individual. If you would like to do art or make pottery and that's what makes you happy, then you should go head into heels and follow that dream! As said before, you are your own being and no one can persuade you to do something that you do not want to follow or do!
I hope this helped, and thank you!
