Society dictates safe careers as a norm. You have to choose a career path in the mainstream fields such as engineering, medicine or law, etc. Importance of these disciplines can never be undermined, but when this becomes a general expectation, the young generation tends to opt for them out of compulsion rather than passion. When you do not love what you do, it becomes difficult to lead a satisfying life even if you are successful according to others’ definitions.
A minority of people refuse to fit into the norms, though. They refuse to give in to the societal expectations and show them that you can be successful even if you follow your dreams. They never see careers as a source of gaining monetary success, rather it is considered a means to work on yourself and live the best possible life.
Life contains unlimited possibilities. It is to be explored rather than binding yourself in a box. When someone chooses unconventional career paths, they do not see rock bottoms as struggles. Instead, they see them as stepping stones to grow. They are so passionate about growing themselves as a personally and professionally, which eventually leads to a content and satisfied life.
