Good morning one and all. Respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends, it is my pleasure and privilege to stand before you today. I am honored to have this opportunity to speak to such a distinguished audience.Today on this occasion, I would like to talk about the importance of choosing the right career.
What is a career? It is more than a job or a task, over the years it morphs into your lifestyle and identity. This is why picking the right career is extremely crucial, it can be called the most significant life decision that inevitably has everlasting effects. There is no one correct career, it is more complex than that.
The right career varies from individual to individual. The correct way to select a career should be after a thorough analysis of your interests, passions, strengths and skills. If even one of these elements is lacking it will lead to discontentment and a dissatisfied work life.
A successful career usually leads to a content life and financial security. It makes the individual feel whole and provides a sense of pride and accomplishment. It is important to understand that while some may find themselves inclined towards a certain field others will not feel that inclination, however, it is important to respect all professions.
In order to achieve professional success it is important to develop the required skills that the role demands from you. For this purpose, one must invest in education and take part in training programs. The mind should always be kept ready to learn and absorb knowledge from everywhere possible. Having a broad mind that is down to explore the various options is greatly beneficial.
In the modern world it has become impressively easy to gain access to knowledge of various fields from the apex professionals through the medium of online talk sessions, online courses and even career counselling. At times the responsibilities may seem overwhelming but it is important to remind yourself that in order to achieve success, perseverance and resilience are always the key contributors.
Another trait that greatly benefits an individual is the ability to adapt and be flexible. A rigid way of life is not very progressive for it poses various limitations. However, if you are flexible, regardless of what the challenge is, you will be able to overcome it.
With this I come to the end of my speech. I hope I was able to encourage you to do something that you are not only passionate about, but will also yield you financial security and respect.
