Have you ever thought of life as a series of occurrences? When you were younger, did you watch and listen to what others shared? Did you then follow their direction and made decisions as you moved into adulthood based on certain foundational understandings?
Did you reflect on what you saw? Did you like or dislike certain associated feelings? In life, uncertainties appeared and perhaps, from time to time, you felt a little scared.
Career choices are scary things if you didn’t immediately know or resonate with a particular occupation or profession. Some individuals believe they are expected to follow a family-held career path and they have no other choice than to do as they feel they must. Other times, career opportunities may have seemingly popped up and into play out of nowhere. When going to that final interview, the position seemed like it would be good enough and it paid well. You were young, so why not try this or that out for a while? You had lots of time to change your mind. Might we look at this premise another way?
