How I Decided What I Want To Become
Before Two years ago, when I was in 11 grade somebody asked me what do you want to become in your life, few seconds after his question I was in abstract thoughts and asked myself do I really want to do something in life ?
However, few moments later with a skeptical thinking of my career, I dodged his question with a funny reply “I want to become a useful human being’’, but after he left I again asked myself what I want to do in my life ?
After that event, That question remain stuck in my mind and for over a month I started to keep asking myself what I want to become in my life , In a result I ended up reading biography of successful peoples in the world including Elon Musk, Jack Ma, J.k Rowling and many others , What I found in reading all these biographies is this line said by Les Brown (Motivational Speaker)
“Easy is not an option.”
The habit of keep asking myself helped me to find out my passion in a way I never expected, one of the lecture which really helped to choose my path is a talk of philosopher known as Alan Watts (I have attached the video below), I followed one of his advice which he gave by choosing one choice, , I followed path which I think I will never gonna feel any regret, that’s the reason my instinct compelled to choose Computer science and to become Cyber Security Engineer.
Later afterwards, I noticed that I was not the only person who was living with such a unplanned life, majority of students are the victims of this dilemma due to their complex problems.
Therefore, I decided to suggest some tips for students who haven’t decided anything yet about their future life.
Here Are Some tips I think which can helpful to anyone who want find out the real you.
