Who Are You Really?

Are You Motivated?
If your job doesn’t excite you and makes you get out of bed willingly in the morning then it is motivating you at all. Think about your drive and your motivation. Find what makes you settle for certain things. What motivates you? and then decide on a career.
Do you understand what it will take to make a career of your choice? Do you have that level of commitment? You need to be honest with your dream and be committed to work to make it a reality, if you can’t do that you cannot achieve anything in life.
Answer these questions most importantly before you pick a career for yourself. You’ll be spending your life working for that one thing you set out to achieve so you don’t really want it not to be worth all that you gave.
