Most people never make a conscious decision about their careers and end up at a certain place, due to external factors and present opportunities. Their career path wasn't carved out or planned.
Creating your career is something that most people don't think of at an early stage when they are not sure about themselves and the world around them.
Here are Five Steps that can create your career:
1. Analyzing yourself.
2. Identify your industry
3. Improve your basic, universal skills
4. Start from Scratch
5. Continuous Self-Development
Pursue a career at a place that fits your strengths and makes you shine.
Do what you love and you will see that even a hobby can turn into a career.
Just knowing your job is not enough, you also need some universal skills like:
Be patient and start from the bottom; avoid going for quick fixes and unrealistic expectations, and keep learning as you go up the right way.
Successful people keep learning and developing themselves. This way they are never stuck in a dead-end job, or in their own comfort zone.

A good start is to monetize the skills you already have that are related to the side hustle you want to establish this. And if you lack key skills that relate to your interests or the side hustle you want to create, there's no better time than the present to learn them.
Your side hustle idea may seem awesome and disruptive to you, but your potential customers will likely ignore it like most “brilliant ideas” or even not have a need for it. So, ensure you're not creating a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, as this is one of the top causes of startup failures.
