i have certain hobbies that i've honed since primary school, so i think i've jus decided my career subconsciously through that0
Around preteen years although it was like an accident. Some years before then, my grandfather gave me a personal computer and some programming books since I was very interested in how video games were made. So I learned how to program and design games in the late 80s using Borland Turbo C and x86 assembly as well as making music and creating sprites and so forth.
Then around my preteen years, I started getting limited access to the internet and online sites like CompuServe and AOL. So I published and shared my games for free online. Then they ended up going big with over a million downloads.
I then got job offers from major companies like FASA looking to hire me as their lead engineer and offering me contracts, but they didn't realize I was a kid still riding the school bus to school. So I had to decline the offers but that's when I realized I could be very successful doing this.
Later I published my work online in university for computer graphics that became very popular in the film industry and a similar thing happened with a boatload of job offers. I was able to take one of them after I graduated.1
If you cannot do well under stress. then you're not made for highly competitive sports, military life and absolutely not fit for law ENFORCEMENT.
I would suggest you that instead of going for what is easier for you, try to improve and actually "defeat" what you can't handle at this moment, you're still young, so try to become better at that, doing well under stress, don't quit that just yet.12
What Girls & Guys Said
I decided to become a filmmaker on a whim one day when I was prepping dinner and watching tv. We had this shitty, small, old CRT tv tucked away in a cabinet that you could see from the center island of the kitchen. I was chopping green beans and watching a G4 program called "Attack of the Show." It was hosted by a guy named Kevin Perreira and a woman, Candace Bailey. For whatever reason, I saw a lot of myself in Kevin, and I made the choice to get into broadcasting and filmmaking right then and there. That decision was made around 10 years ago, and now I'm a professional filmmaker =)12
I always dreamt of being an artist, and it was what I wanted to do with my life. Of course, I had to be real with myself, that art doesn't make money. It wasn't until I was 19 that I realized that I could tattoo and be able to make money off of my art.10
Dude, becoming a professional athlete is very difficult, with long odds. Don't know where you live, but by your age you should be playing in a junior league of some type to be on track for the pros. It sounds like you have a variety of ambitions, which is a smart approach at your age. It is highly likely you will change your mind several times in the next few years regarding your career path. This is completely normal.0
I realized it in my mid twenties.
Subconsciously, I 'felt' it a lot earlier: my various activities and interests had pointed towards it since primary school actually.
It wasn't a plan - things just fell into place and unfolded.
Interestingly, my teenage idea of what I'd like to do professionally - wasn't close at all.0
I haven't. I fell into a job, somehow managed to have various roles with employer, a few promotions, feel stuck there now in someways as pay is decent but not amazing, side benefits are pretty good (leave, flexible working, pension etc. I don't hold any qualifications so not sure how i would get on in open job market. I now have 2 kids so need solid salary coming in, i pretty much have a job for life with employer, unless i screw it up0
I still don't know lol. I'm not the career oriented type. I'm just looking for an entry level job rn. I am way more focused on learning about personal finance atm.10

When I was 23. I first worked as kids do in several different restaurants, etc.
I always climbed the ladders. Became manager. At 19 at McDonald’s. Moved to Texas and became an upper tier manager in a position created just for me.
The work was challenging but easy enough to handle. What I did not like was tension which built up among all McDonald's in the area. It was bizarre. If the places ran as the company described with rules and regulations, there truly was nothing to worry about. They meaning the hire ups and their upset affected the team.
When it came my turn to speak to a big wig he commented on a specific ring I was wearing. I loved the ring because it represented the union of my mother and father. My mother had it made and inscribed it in common Latin. The Big Wig said he did not know what it meant. Furthermore he was ignorant of his own ignorance, a weakness I found intolerable.
What a foolish man, I thought to myself.
3 weeks later I drove home.
Both my father and mother and I are immigrants, from South America. my father holds three specialties. Internal Medicine, Hematology and Oncology. My mom, is an RN and speaks 13 languages.
Do you believe I belonged in the soup of cooperation ignorance. 8 years later I became a dentist.
Moral: Think about whom you are and live it.
