Changing Your Career Path
Choosing the wrong career path is actually a surprisingly common problem in today's society. It doesn't matter how many years you have dedicated to your current profession or how much money you've invested, if you don't have a passion for what you do then the chances are that you have been walking down the wrong path. It can be painful to openly admit this - but being honest with yourself is the first step to getting yourself on the right path.

It doesn't matter what kind of upbringing you experienced or what school you attended, the vast majority of people end up making an incorrect career choice or desire to change their career for one or a combination of the following factors.
- Pressure to Choose - We now live in an era where we are expected to know what we want to do for the rest of our lives at an extremely young age. Barely into our teenage years we are being bombarded with career days, advice from teachers and pressure from parents. You are made to feel that there's something wrong with you if you still don't know at this point. The truth is that about 95% of people still don't know what they want to dedicate their lives to at the time of leaving school.
