You have to ask what motivates you. As you make your choices of paths or interests that you want to make, you have to ask the “why.” Without the why, you may find yourself in an area of expertise that you really don’t like. You’re just going through the motions to make money, or just to survive.
For some people, it’s not about money or status; as much as, it’s about how they feel about themselves at the end of the day. How they view themselves when they close their eyes at night; or when they look back at their life and feel if they did the right thing.
Decisions need to be made, but make sure you’re ready for what meets you in the days ahead. Ask yourself what your motivation is before taking a path because you don’t want to wake up one day and regret your choice.
