If you look back at the good old days while you were still at school, you were being taught a wide range of subjects and have been provided a bit of guidance here and there about which career path you must take. And that is all. There were not a lot of coaching programs that were provided to you while you were in school unless of course you were an athlete.
Though there might be policies in your country that promote the use of the services of mentors or coaches, these services might not be too practical in the long-term. This is especially true if the education sector will be cutting their budget and career services for the youth.
If you try to recall how you were educated in the past, you will come to realize that a lot of universities, colleges, and schools never develop the passion that the children or their students have and are born with. What great world it would be if the education system has a way of tapping into the real passions of their students and work on providing them with educational subjects that fit their passions just right rather than just generalizing what subjects these students must attain.
Once you become a parent, you will obviously be thinking about these things as you send your children to school. You need to work your way towards instilling the kind of support and inspiration that your children will be needing for them to reach their absolute career and life choices with a purpose. As a parent, there is nothing more fulfilling than seeing your children discover what they really want to do with their life. Once they do, it is only a matter of time that they become more focused with their studies.
Usually, discover your child’s purpose in life starts with discover what your life’s purpose is. If you are devoid of any purpose in life, you easily get lost and sidetracked. It becomes very easy for you drift and wander in life and not accomplish anything at all.
As a parent, you can begin to have a chat with your kid by talking to them at an informal environment. Avoid having to let them sit down and frill them because most of them will just walk out on you. Ask them what they want in life. There are generally two ways that these kids respond to this question. Some start to write things down or start talking about it while some will just shrug their shoulders while answering you that they do not know.
If you get caught with the latter answer, you can proceed in asking them about the things that they do not want to happen to them such as being homeless, poor, jobless, and so on. You then follow up by asking them what they would like to be instead rather than being homeless, poor, or jobless.
During this time, you or your kid will now start writing a list. This list must comprise the things that they like such as holidays and cars and the more spiritual things that they like such as being content and happy. The answers do not matter at this point.
After having this list created, you ask your kid if they can begin searching them on the internet to get some pictures of what they want and then have them printed. These pictures can be placed on their wall to serve as reminder to them about what they are waiting for.
