My son is graduating from college with his bachelors degree in exercise science. He will be starting chiropractic college soon. We eagerly look forward to him coming to northern California in a few years, and practicing here as a chiropractor in Roseville. I'm so fortunate to have a career that I can now share with my boy.
As an experienced chiropractor in Roseville, I have a little bit of advice for him, and to other graduates (from high school or college, regardless of their desired career path): find a job or career that you love, and then make sure you continue to love what you do. A great way to maintain that passion is by helping others along the way. And you don't have to love everything about a job. It doesn't have to be your one, true job. You just have to have reasons for loving it. For example, for me, a big motivator is I love helping people to get relief from pain. I also find the actual work to be interesting. The social aspect is also a bonus. Recognizing the good and being mindful of it will allow you to get through the unpleasant aspects of the job.
But that's not all. I have more advice and the excellent aspect of this counsel is that is is fairly easy to follow. Share your talents in your work, be kind, and be sure to smile - lots of people are having a bad day, on any given day - give them the break you want when you're having a bad day.
Give of yourself and whatever you do will give back.
