Making a positive change

So it’s almost time to graduate university and, I’m gonna level with you here, I still have no freaking idea what I’m doing or why on earth I decided to do this course. I mean, yes, real estate based courses are always going to be a bit of a stable. They may not being overwhelmingly exciting or particularly fulfilling, but the world needs people versed in these particular fields. I guess that’s kind of why I did the course in the first place. I’ve never been someone who’s going to change the world, so I may as well just make my way through life and make a little bit of money while I’m at it.

Thing is, why that was probably a good idea at the time, I’m really starting to question whether a career in conveyancing is for me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s an amazing pathway that opens doors to wonderful career opportunities, and for a lot of people it’s a really wonderful and rewarding career, I’m just not sure if it’s going to be wonderfully rewarding for me. I just kind of want a little bit more meaning in what I do. I want to help people, and I question whether I can really do that while working in this field. Sure, knowing what the sale of land act in 1962 did to change the housing market is interesting, but it’s never going to change the lives of the millions of starving children all over the planet. Not that I want to do that, exactly, just that I think I might want to be a part of the bigger picture – help change the world and all that – and I just don’t know if I’m going to do that. Actually, I think there’s a pretty strong possibility that I’ll never do anything like that, and to be honest, that truly terrifies me.
