Kids are becoming efficient and evolving as stronger human beings, even before we as adults, begin to accept that their mental maturity is higher than what we expect.
In this case, why not discuss various career opportunities, which is evolving and booming and help them draw a future plan? Students will be more than willing to accept the reality when they are not stressed.
Plan A, Plan B and Plan C..!! An intricate and exhaustive plan.
For instance, if a child wants to become a doctor and the marks secured does not match, there is an alternative way.
Please do the Root Cause Analysis of any wish or desire that is born . Below is an example to do this.
Desiring to become a doctor can be derived from following logical reasons:
1. Interested in relieving fellow human beings from pain.
2. Interested in analyzing applicable drugs and combinations. Thus be a source of relief.
3. Knowing the anatomy and functions of Human body.
4. Aspiring to be a specialized surgeon (Ex: Orthopedist, Cardiologist)
5. Dedicating oneself for serving people (Not aspiring for high remuneration)
If the reason is to wear a white coat, use a stethoscope and what not, then, one should contemplate if they are serious about their aspiration?
From the above reasons, except for becoming a surgeon, many other career streams offer the possibility to make their dream come true (Ex: Pharmaceutical, psychologists, psychiatrists, genetic experts and so on). Now you can explore and plan for your passionate career. This is what we call as Plan A, B and C! The story does not end with this. One has to be ready to pursue and be mentally prepared for uncertainty.
Efforts have to be channelized in the right way. Nothing is dearer that one’s life. Emotional support can also be successful when one has a solution for the other.
Concrete planning and honest efforts taken to know oneself, can solve any problem! 🙂
