In a fast developing world as such there are so any open doors for young people in society to suit their talents and skills they hold. Back in the old days professions were only main stream such as doctors and engineers but now it is more diverse and specialized. Even when it comes to a doctor there are so many classes such as a pediatrician and an oncologist. Another advantage is that even if one doesn’t get an MBBS t become a doctor there are other doors than are available such as becoming a researcher or scientist. So just because you drop one step down does not mean you can’t go many steps up. Always think positive and look for opportunity without merely existing because opportunities come and go only once in a while and if you miss the chance then the wait might be long till the next one comes.
There are some people who are good in the training ground but who miserably fail in exams during school and college. It is not all about what you score during your exams and a good example to be taking into consideration is Bill Gates. He was a drop out from college but yet he is now one of the richest men alive on planet earth and his income can suffice one third the population who are in poverty across the globe. Some consultancy jobs do not necessarily require a main stream qualification and a good example is property development consultants. Just by having the talent of pursuing people and advising those regarding property can take a person a long way.
Apart from the main types of degrees and masters one could simply try out some courses to tap into your hidden talent. For example one could try out a series of courses such as property asset management course to a culinary course and check which one interests you the most. And once you find the interest one could simply specialize in that given field and it is easy when you are specialized because it cuts down the competition and sets a platform for one to shine bright.
Never underestimate yourself or let anyone put you down because failures are the ones that bring about successful stories. Thomas Alva Edison can be taken into account because it took him about 99 tries to make a functioning light bulb and he never gave up till he did make one on his 100th try. And even in today’s world he is considered a renowned scientist.
