Some golden rules when you decide your career
Make a list of work options. Look at these options - see if you have the required support for these realistic options that are open to you at present.
Expose yourself to wider knowledge by attending career exhibitions and talks, reading, and above all, talking to people in your field of interests.
People love to talk about their work, particularly if they are successful. Try to obtain a true description of the work as it really is - the 'truth' as it were. This relates in particular to 'glamorous; and 'prestigious' jobs, where the job content on analysis may be less than satisfying. You may still accept the job, because glamour, prestige and money are more important to you than job content. Unhappy experience can be avoided by finding answers to simple questions at the outset.
Seek counseling from qualified counselors on various career options according to your aptitude.
