Key Ideas

Creating your career

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.

You Decide who you become

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

Self-analysis

When you analyze yourself, instead of pondering over what you are not good at, find out your strengths and sharpen them, turning a good skill into excellence.

The place to shine

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.

Your Universal Skills

Just knowing your job is not enough, you also need some universal skills like:

  • Leadership
  • Good writing ability
  • Personal effectiveness
  • Persuasion

Start from scratch

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.

Self-Development for growth

Successful people keep learning and developing themselves. This way they are never stuck in a dead-end job, or in their own comfort zone.
