Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? The saying, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again" means to continue working toward a goal in spite of difficulties. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
The majority of the individuals in our society are raised on the idea that people choose a permanent job and adhere to it for the rest of their lives. I am of the belief that people should tackle into different jobs until they find their desired career. If I am asked to give my friend some advice, I will explain my insight towards this issue in the following paragraphs. First, if my friend is seeking for a career shift, I will definitely ask her to find a job that drives her to develop her professional skills. I used to have a friend who has spent ten years of her life in one job. She found out that she missed some needed skills in the work field. As I mentioned before, the best job is the one which pulls you out of the comfort zone and pushes you forward to improve one'self. Second, I think one of the essential aspects when deciding for a job is to choose a career that you truly like and ignore any other interferences such as parents' wish or society's vision. I have watched a TEDX talk presented by Basem Youssof who was a cardiothoric surgeon.He shifted his career from surgery to be a stand up comedian so he had a promising career. Although they are totally two different fields, he got the gut to leave the medical career behind and go for his passion. If he had continued to be a cardiothoric surgeon, he wouldn't have reached the fame and success that he achieved and witnessed right now. That is why I really stand strongly for determining the career according to your interests and abilities. In a summary, if my friend is thinking of career shifting, I will recommend her to look for a job that keeps her ambitious and looks forward to develoing herself continuously.Another recommendation is that she should choose a career which gives her a full satisfaction of herself no matter what the job is and without any external pressure from the parents or society.
