In this unforgiving modern world that demands a lot from people and expect their best and nothing less, there are many folks who feel the pressure of pushing themselves way past their limits, going over and beyond the call of duty as well as living up to the high expectations of everyone else around them. And that is the reason why there are many people who feel stressed out and stretched too thin because of the tremendous pressure, overwhelming concerns, personal worries and pressing problems that are threatening to push them over the edge. This goes double for people in the IT Maintenance community because they are the troubleshooters and saviours of the virtual world who solve the different problems concerning computers and technology of the people around them.
With that said, young people of the next generation are also feeling the pressure that their parents, mentors and teachers put on their tired and weary shoulders. This is especially true when it comes to their studies in schools because their exemplary and notable performance in the academe can be their stepping stone to the good life ahead as they slowly but surely climb to the peak of their performance and pinnacle of success. But sometimes, some parents decide and choose the career path for their children without asking them what they want and talking with them about their long-term goals and ultimate dream in life as well as their innermost fears and desires.
And that is why there are many professionals out there who are quite successful but are unhappy and malcontent in the positions that they fill in their companies. Instead of pursuing a lucrative and fulfilling career in an IT maintenance company where they can use their innate talents, sharpened skills and natural affinity with computers, some of them are stuck in law firms as lawyers or dead end jobs as corporate lackeys in a dull and boring office. This saps the energy and the life out of them because they cannot let their imagination and creativity run wild as they finish their mountains of paperwork, field business calls all day and sit in meetings that are monotonous, boring and repetitive.
And that is why parents should sit down and talk with their children and students to learn more about them, identify their skills and interests in life, plan their future together and support their chosen career path to improve their chance of succeeding and making it big in the outside world. As Albert Einstein once said, if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, then it will think that it is a stupid failure all its life. This goes especially true for people because every person is special and different from one another. With that said, young people should be nurtured, motivated and inspired by their role models in such a way that they grow up thinking that they can be anyone or anything that they want to be because they are the best versions of themselves and they have a whole army behind their back ready to support them all the way.
