Career Decisions – One Essential Tip You Must Not Forget!
Have you ever pondered upon what does success and happiness mean to you? Are they the same or mean different things? Like when you excelled in your board exams but you still weren’t happy about it because you scored less in your favourite subject? Or when you took great career decisions ‘practically speaking’, but somehow still didn’t feel happy?
On similar lines, Mehak Sethi, a successful lawyer turned photographer, went through the same struggle of understanding the difference between career success and happiness. After class 12th, he chose to do law just like his other friends. He pursued his law from ILS Law college, which was the second best law college in Pune. He later went on to get his Masters from University of Glasgow. In spite of being a successful lawyer and working alongside established lawyers in the country such as Indira Jaising and travelling to many destinations such as US and Afghanistan, Mehak was marred with dissatisfaction, stress and unhappiness. It was only then, he listened to his heart’s desire and decided to call it quits.
