How are you sure in your future?

I have been to school once before for Business Management. I thought I was sure that is what I wanted to do however I was given the opportunity without completing my degree and I gave it a shot for 3 years it just wasn't for me. Now back in school for something I have always had interest in but I'm scared that its going to happen again. #information-technology #career-goals

I'd consider myself as a lifelong learner. Are you back in school for something drastically different than Business Management? The skills you learn for business management can be applied in a slew of different jobs as a lot of the skills are transferrable across many professions. Each of us will grow in some way shape or form in every class and/or job we take. I agree with the other responder who says college is a terrible place to really determine what you like and/or are good at unless they have a fully open curriculum which many do not. Kepe in mind, you could join nearly any corporate department with a Business Management degree and each department will offer you a completely different opportunity.

Unfortunately, the future is not laid out in a "yellow brick road". As you have already experienced there are diversions, uncertainty, and even physical limitations. View all this as a journey and every decision you make leads to new opportunities. Business Management is a great foundation which can lead you into many career fields. Know yourself and your passions. Evaluate the things that you did not like about the last opportunity and the things you did like. Grow with the knowledge that you won't just fall into that dream job. For example: A person dreaming to be a veterinarian, at some point in their career was the person cleaning cages and collecting stool samples.

Be patient and continue growing, eventually you will get to that place you are meant to be in.

Your degree and your eventual career might not be a match. As you work at different companies and in different roles, your path will emerge over time. So many skills are transferable across industries and roles. So finish that degree and let it serve you to get launched, but don't ever let yourself think you cant do something because your degree is in a different field.

The way to find your strengths and passions is to be CAR (capable, adaptable, receptive). You will probably have to work through some tasks you DON'T like before you find ones you DO like. College is TERRIBLE for this; Working multiple different jobs and finding ways to be successful is VERY helpful.

No one can ever be 100% sure of their future. We all take chances and hope for the best by staying optimistic. Holding on to disappointments from the past can impact your present moment and keep you stuck and fearful, always worrying about future outcomes. But it sounds like you are in the right place, and focusing on your true interests, which are from a place of passion - it's in your heart! Live from that place instead, and rather than worry about your future, enjoy the moment learning about your true interests, which will most likely lead you to purposeful work that you enjoy. Use the past as learning experiences which will lead you in the right direction. Doors will open for you because you are doing what you love. PLUS, the experience you have learned, along with going to school for Business Management will be useful for your future work. Sometimes it's hard to see it now, but as time goes on, you will see that it all will add up, and be very valuable. Just keep going and best wishes to you!
