The first thing you must do is to acquire a vision. A vision is

a clearly articulated picture of the future you intend to create

for yourself. In other words, it's a dream. However, if the dream

does not have direction, it will never become a reality. That

vision should create a passion within you, a love for what you do

and the benefit it brings others as well as yourself. Make sure the

vision is specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and

tangible. Once you have that vision, you will need a mentor,

counselor, or coach who will be able to help you develop a road map

with short term objectives leading to your overall career goals and

objectives. It will take some research, but you most likely have

some ideas already. Follow them through, look at the nature of the

field, the everyday routine, the required education, the salary,

the occupational demand and the related fields. When a career

sparks an interest, try to shadow an individual who is actually

doing what you think you might like to do. You can pick up valuable

information this way. Thus, read the following and give it serious


Acquire the will to change circumstances

Acquire the vision (dream)

Develop a written road-map leading to the overall goal and


Just do it and don't let go until it becomes a reality.
