Your best head start in life is setting your career course early.
Deciding on the best possible career direction is the most important part of any educational planning. Between the ages of 15 and 21, the way people sort out their relationship to the world around them, and leverage their educational opportunities, will profoundly influence their success and satisfaction in life.
Young people who are fortunate enough to know early and with certainty the kind of careers that will elegantly fit their unique, natural-born gifts and personalities can plan a course of study and preparation that promises an exceptionally successful and fulfilling life.
The fact is, most college graduates say that what they learned in school had too little to do with their present career. It’s also unfortunately true that most of them will tell you they feel unhappy or neutral about the career they either chose or – just as likely – simply fell into. Ask 100 graduates if their school career counseling was a big help in determining their direction, and at best one or two might raise their hands.
How can you beat these odds and forecast with real confidence the kind of career you’ll love and be successful in, especially if you start planning for it now? If you’re a parent, how can help your children find a life of real achievement and fulfillment?
