Signs You Picked The Right Career For You

Ways to know that you have taken the right path for your future.


Figuring out your future as a young adult is bad enough, but picking your lifetime job and career can be terrifying.

Some people come by it naturally or through their family. Some people have absolutely no guidance or influence at all when it comes to a career. Whether you are attending a 4-year college, attending a trade school, or jumping right into the workforce, there are many ways to know that you are going down the right path.

You actually enjoy attending classes

Now, I know for many that math class can be boring, but that is not my point.

If you look forward to any sort of training or class regarding your career, then you probably have a true passion for that field. This is much more than just liking the teacher, or enjoying the class because you don't have to do anything.

Classes or training that allows growth and presents challenges but also brings joy and excitement are some of the most impactful courses you can be a part of.

Even if the class is not a direct necessity for your career, but it could bring a new perspective or aspect to your resume which could help you in the long run.

You spend time looking into the career for fun

Research doesn't sound fun but doing it on your own without any requirements or guidelines can be really beneficial. Simply looking into the benefits or even opportunities with your career can help you to further understand and deepen your passion for whatever you plan on pursuing.

You talk about it a lot

When you can bring up your career in any conversation then you probably really like your career.

Talking about what you are passionate about is definitely not a bad thing. If your families or friends tell you to stop talking about it, then you must really really like that job.

The best thing you can do if your friends are tired of hearing the same things over and over again, find people that share your passion.

People that don't know anything about your career may not understand everything you are talking about, but once you find someone that shares the same career interests as you, conversations will flourish and go nuts.

Once you are away from it, all you want is to go back

When your passion is so pure, it is hard to take any time away from it. If you ever go after another job or for some reason take a break from your career, it can constantly make you think and reminisce your original plan. In some cases, it may get to the point to where you actually do go back and are better than ever.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
