How to choose your Career-From Electrical Engineer to a DJ




Alright! This is my first time that I am writing a blog. I have mixed feelings somewhat excited, somewhat nervous. Most of the experiences that I have had in my life some good some... Not so good. But out of every situation I am glad that I learnt something. Ok, let& s get to it.

 Biggest Mistake 



 The worst thing that happened to me was that I did engineering, you are right ENGINEERING.

But like I said I learnt from my mistakes, Doing engineering in India is like eating pizza, everyone does it. the worst part is what happens after it (constipation), just like pizza is not a good diet to remain healthy same way doing engineering without knowing what our liking is, is fatal too. I recently met an engineer who was just like Aamir Khan from 3 Idiots, he lived engineering , he loved problems and to solve them was his ultimate goal.

I could see he was a true engineer from the heart, but nowadays we don't see such engineers. He was giving me an example telling if an engineer makes Maggi and a normal man makes Maggi then the engineers Maggi should be tastier just because he is making it using a lot of calculation and statistics.



Money Sweeter Than Honey

The Primeval Force for doing anything in this world is money. Which I can agree & it should be, but however if you really want to earn money we can't just keep focusing on money rather we should focus on the things that attract money.

Let me make it simple. Eg: You get into engineering you study you pass out and then you look for
a job but have ever you are not passionate about engineering then what will happen, the first thing that it will reflect on is your work and the second thing that it will reflect on is your attitude in your
workplace, you won't like working, even after work you will feel tired, drained, stressed out. You can go on with such pressure only if you like your job however if that is not the case then my friend you
won't continue in that place for a long time, you might blame your job, you might blame your boss, your coworkers but however, that is not where the problem lies. It lies in the root, you are not loving your job.




Artificial Love


Can someone love artificially my answer is no for you to love something you have to have a connection deep within your heart so my point over here is that you need to not choose things that are in trend in the society rather choose the things that are very close to your heart just for an, for example, I will say if

Sachin Tendulkar was told by his mother to become an engineer we would not see such great cricket
however, he chose cricket which was his love over school I bet you he would not have become a great person as he is now if he would have chosen to continue school.


Is it good for becoming successful in life with not having good education qualification or is it good to have a good educational qualification but struggle in your workplace in your job in your life. If you might say now we have already chosen engineering we can't back down from it. I get it even I did the same mistake I am an engineer BTech in electrical engineering.





Dharma & Ikigai


However, there is something called as ikigai that came into my knowledge. Ikigai is the Japanese version of Dharma. Dharma means nature. For example, the nature of sugar is to be sweet so the Dharma of the sugar is sweet, Dharma of salt is to be salty so dharma is at the core the nature of a particular thing so what our nature that is this Ikigai, Dharma.

So when you choose your dharma as your career then that's the key to success.




How to choose your Career

First of all, you should write down all the things that you are good at and I mean  very good, the second thing you should do is write the things that you love to do the third thing you should do is write the things that you can get paid for and The Fourth thing is you should write all the things that will help the world to make it a better place. Now out of all the things that have written the thing
that is common in all the four is your nature is your Dharma, it might not be achieved in a very short time but yes it will take some time for you to chalk that.


I'll say take time, I am providing a picture for your reference.

Music


You might wonder so what exactly am I doing, I recently finished my engineering having two year drops yes you heard it correctly 2-year drops however I don't plan on giving up the thing I love. The thing I have been passionate about the thing I can get paid for that thing which I have a talent for and the thing that the world needs. "Music".

Now some people might think they it is not practical, however, I beg to differ. The world is moving fast and so are the developing countries like India, its high time that we know the world is not going to wait for us, we have to change with it.

For others it can be something different that's your journey you have to find that out give yourself some time going to the past check out the things you are good at check out the things you love to do you will find out eventually. Questions welcomed in the comment section.




Thank you.
