The Paths We Take

We each develop different experiences in life which makes each of us unique. One particular thing that always piqued my interest was an individual’s career path, understanding how people decided what they wanted to be as they grew older. I focused on two certain outcomes any child could experience. My goal was to discover whether a child who views a parent as a role-model for their future career can achieve a higher sense of self-fulfillment in comparison to those that don’t. After my research, I learned that although those who viewed their parents as role-models for their career paths, did have a (slightly) higher chance of achieving a more self-fulfilled future, we can still achieve our own sense of self-fulfillment regardless of our experiences, and that it all just depends on the paths we take.
