Where are my goals?
The world is moving towards positivism every day. There are many revolutions taking place in all areas of life. Human beings live in a closed structure that is surrounded by an eco-system. We depend on our environment for our basic needs, while we are responsible for protecting our ecological system. Human beings have used Earth’s natural resources to create materials, goods, and services that provide comfort for humans. The remarkable technological advancements since the mid-17th century, when the industrial revolution in Great Britain was completed with the invention of the wheel, have been astounding. The creation of industries led to the production of goods and services at relatively low prices. This led to an increase in businesses and the development of many disciplines of education and practice. Karl Marx, an economist, visited Europe in 19th century Europe. He forced the European industrialists, or more precisely the business class, to increase their businesses around the globe through imports and outbounds. This can lead to the economic growth of the country. This interaction between states was the foundation of globalization. The advancements in technology and communication led to new trends in education and the professions.
Since the beginning of time, debate has raged about choosing the right profession. The world is changing rapidly and people are forced to think more broadly about the career they want. What course is best for me if it’s all about me? This question is easily answered at this point in life. However, if I look back on my life just a few years ago, what course would be best for me? This was the question I used ask my family, my friends and myself. But even then, the question was not easy to answer. I remember that bright day in summers when I was admitted to Engineering University. It was the land of dreams for millions. I was asked to show my talents as hardware to improve the world. My family was happy and my relatives were congratulating me. It was a moment of pride for me, a stage of growth as I was about to move to another city to finish my undergraduate studies. Although my university was beautiful, it quickly became a horrible place. We were subjected to endless mental torture, quizzes and assignments. Semesters continued to pass like this.
I managed to find time to write, which was my ultimate hobby. That was when I fell in love with this hobby. I was now exposed to practical applications of my field. I was offered a paid internship at an American company with an offshore office in Islamabad. I worked in the cloud computing department. I went to the office with an optimistic outlook to learn new concepts and implement them in the world of sciences to bring an optimistic revolution into technology’s cloud. But I soon realized that Engineering was not my calling. I was meant to do something other than Engineering. English Literature, International Relations, or Economics were all options. This was a difficult and chaotic stage in my life, where I was once again stuck on the same question 3 years ago: “What course is best?”
It was clear that Engineering is not what I want. I decided to take a step and withdraw from Engineering. I was actually in a torture cell, which was a torturing place for me. But where was I supposed to be? Another phase of my life was a pinching one. This phase was similar to the identity moratorium, the third phase of Marcian Theory. The theory was presented under the banner of identity crisis. The phase or type illustrated that people who are experiencing or going through this stage are often in the exploration or searching for alternatives. She used the example of college students who change their majors but don’t know what to do or where to go. It was the same for me. But, I decided that I would try again with a deeper understanding of the concepts and gestalt knowledge in my heart and mind. I was soon on the right track and was able to see the main point. I joined an Economics college.
