Each second that ticks away in time is gone forever and we will never have the opportunity to use that second again. Once our “time is up” as they say any magnificent opportunity we have is gone forever. Then, how you choose to use this limited resource called time is probably the most important decision that you ever have to make. Yet most people never give it a thought they just let it trickle away and never really do anything of value with it.

WHAT IS CAREER ANXIETY?
“Success is not measured by what a man accomplishes, but by the opposition he has encountered and the courage with which he has maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.

Career Anxiety could be defined as career panic or phobia. I think the word panic is better than career Anxiety. It is more accurate and descriptive. So, Career anxiety is an intense fear of choosing a career, and the fear prevent a student from being able to make and attain self fulfilment. Career anxiety hinder study’s from choosing and achieving their career.
