Dear Prashant,
A business is driven by conviction and passion. Given your state of mind that is fluctuating at the moment, I would not advise you to start your own business. You are very young in your career and hence this is the time to make mistakes. So relax and don't be frustrated. Eventually, everything will get sorted out.

I suggest that you introspect and evaluate how you want to grow in your career. What are your core strengths? What do you enjoy doing most? I would suggest that you talk to your colleagues and manager and request them for feedback/recommendations as to how you can improve your selling/marketing skills.

Giving up is easy but making success needs hard work and patience. There is really no short cut so figure out your career goals and work towards achieving them. Happy fixing!

Dear Prashant,

You need to observe yourself and explore things that make you happy - for instance, as a child what kind of games you enjoyed playing? Ask your family and friends for inputs and discuss this with them too.

The field/career path is a self exploration process. A coach can help you ask the right questions that will lead you to the goal. In this entire process, you may make mistakes too, and this is fine. So, you should be experiment with different options.

I suggest that you read my blog using the link below:

Dear Prashant,
You have already started the exploration process and thats why you have posted this problem on Fixerline.

All of us have a mindset, it is just that we may not have figured it out. If you dont have a goal now, it is okay. Relax. You should not force yourself to have a goal. Try and do things that make you happy. And the things that you have to do - you should do them with a happy heart. Read books/blogs, spend time with friends, and observe people silently. Spend some time with yourself also.

Give yourself time, such things dont happen instantly and can even take months unless you are lucky.

Dear Prashant,

There are a couple of things that I advise you at this point of time:
1. As you feel that you are not able to explore career goals by yourself, I suggest that you book a career counselling session with a career coach.
2. If you are feeling depressed and losing sleep, you can also opt for an appointment with a certified psychologist who can help you.

Happy fixing!
