I am confused about my career path

I am extremely confused about what career path I should take; my parents want me to take up something and I want to do something else. I feel that if I take up what they want me to I will never be happy. What should I do?

You need to first get your mind clear about what you wish to do. If you feel very confused, visit a career counsellor who can help you with finding the right career path.
