We’ve all heard the saying, “if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.” But how many of us even like what we do for a living and are satisfied with the career paths we’ve chosen to take?
Well, not many of us, that’s for sure…
According to JobStreet’s 2021 survey, a large part of Malaysia’s workforce is dissatisfied with their jobs and is looking for better prospects. Meanwhile, Cilisos’ ‘Silap Cita-Cita Survey’ revealed that a majority of Malaysians felt that they’ve wasted time and money studying and did not end up with their dream careers.
But this is standard right? After all, work is work—we do it for the pay and success, not for the passion or satisfaction of achieving our goals…
Time to break the stereotype of success!
Despite what society has programmed us to think and what some of the elder members of our generation might say, success doesn’t have to mean giving up on our dreams and ambitions.
It’s been proven that people who are passionate about following their dreams are fitter, happier, more productive, and find greater fulfilment in their lives, no matter how unconventional their ambitions might be — whether to start a thriving online business or produce creative and engaging content for the masses.
A report by TalentCorp Malaysia also noted that the country does need the rakyat to venture into traditionally unorthodox careers like becoming web developers, visual effects artists, gamers, and even content creators to aid in the nation’s growth.
Embracing the unconventional!
With advancements in technology and the nation’s fast-growing gig economy, more and more Malaysians are pursuing unconventional career paths toward success by following their ambitions.
Last year alone, Malaysia saw around 4 million local ‘giggers’ using their talents, and tech-savviness to make a living through unconventional means.
The government has also been encouraging Malaysians of all ages to upskill and reskill themselves to meet shifting labour demands and to always be ahead in today’s digital age while helping the nation grow even stronger on the world stage.
And with the convenience of having access to technologies like Maxis’ high-speed internet at our disposal, we are seeing more and more Malaysians striving to acquire new skills and use the connectivity they have to showcase their talents and make their dreams come true.
This Merdeka and Malaysia Day, Maxis wants everyone to embrace their passions and celebrate the brave and innovative Malaysians who strive to always be ahead to achieve their dreams.
