I want to be a doctor because my daddy or my brother is a doctor, therefore i must study medicine, I want to be a Lawyer because my sister or mum is a lawyer, therefore i must study Law.
The above statement has become an anthem in almost every aspirants lip, no wonder Medicine and Law are the most sought courses in every university in Nigeria, where you see over 10,000 aspirants competing for 100 quota ( survival for the fittest).

Things you should consider when choosing a career/course.

Before discussing the main topic , i will love to tell you what happens when you study the course of your dream and when you study the course of your father's dream.
When you choose the right course;

Looking at those points i listed above, i am very certain you will love to choose the right course/career. Who doesn't want a successful career? Of course, everyone want to be successful one way or the other, i assure you that reading this post will be the beginning of your success.
Now let us go into the post outline for this topic, i hope you are reading carefully because this is where you will know how to choose a career/course.
THINGS YOU SHOULD NOT CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A COURSE/CAREER
The Career/Course is Lucrative: Alot of aspirants fill in medicine in JAMB because they think that studying such course and becoming a doctor is the end of the poverty life, sometimes things might not turn out the way you expected it. Studying a course based of the fact that it is a lucrative course, then sorry to say, you have just made your worst mistake ever.
The Career is Popular: Alot of students want to be hailed as a brilliant dude, hence they fill in for courses like medicine, Law etc. Some want to feel among, but hey, don't study a course because of it popularity. A word is enough for the wise.
Family influence : I have seen families dictates for their children the kind of course they want them to study. Most times, they will want their children to study the course they studied in school or popular courses like medicine and surgery or law or banking and finance. This kind of situation can be so frustrating because i have once experience it , but how did i solve the problem? I had to sit my parents down and tell them that the course they want me to study is my weakness, that i will fail woefully in that course. Pour your mind out to them, make them see reasons why you can't study the course. Take a decision today that will make you happy tomorrow because your family won't be there for you forever.
THINGS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A COURSE/CAREER
Your best subject: This also play a vital role when choosing your course/career. For instance, if your best subjects are physics and mathematics, then you should focus on courses based on those two subjects like engineering course. Knowing your best subject will restrict you from choosing courses that are not relevant, for instance, a student that love mathematics and physics but detest biology and chemistry should know that he/she should remove courses like medicine and surgery from the option when choosing a course/career.
Your passion: The whole list will be incomplete with this, passion. Choosing a course/career must be based on your passion. Ask yourself this questions; do i really want this course? Do i have any skills related to this course? Give an answer to these questions and you will be good to go. Everything is all about passion because you will easily get frustrated if you choose a course/career you don't have passion for. Check yourself!!!
Your goals: I expect every average student to have a goal, i mean a life plan. You should find time to ask yourself what you really want to be in future, you can also seek advice from your parents or professional in different field , by doing this, you will garner more knowledge about the course/career you really want to study.
[b]Know your strength and weakness: [/b]Most students have their strengths and weaknesses one way or the other. It is rare for a student to be good in all areas. For instance, you might be good in mathematics (strength) and be finding biology very difficult (weakness). All this are important factors when deciding your course/career
Let me engage you in a quick exercise by asking you some questions and i will be glad you give your answers in the comment box below.
-What course do you wish to study?
-What is your best subject?
-Why did you prefer that course?
-Apart from that course, what other course do you prefer?
-Does the course correlate with your best subject?
