“If you’re like most of us, you need to earn money by working for a living. Describe your ultimate job. If you’re in your dream job, tell us all about it — what is it that you love? What fulfills you? If you’re not in your dream job, describe for us what your ultimate job would be.” -The Daily Post
Had you asked me this last week, I probably would have said either, “I’m not sure.” or “I want to be the CEO of a company.”
Then I realized my dream of becoming a CEO was flawed. It would be very difficult to make it to the top unless I started a company myself. Plus, lessons being taught in Rutgers Business School clashed with some of my core values. They were making me feel very “fake” to put it simply.
I did some soul searching and eventually realized that I want to go to medical school and become a child psychiatrist. (This is the story of how I figured that part out.) I can’t think of a better path for me to pursue! I love school so it’ll extend my education by a few years. It’ll be a bit more costly but then the average salary is pretty good. I want nothing more than to help people in need – especially children, so it should feel fulfilling. Plus, I can start my own practice and be the “CEO” of it just like I set out to be. 🙂
I’m so excited. I know stuff happens and people rarely become what they set out to become but I really really really want to see this happen. Fingers crossed.
