You may face fears along the way considering the fact that it has not worked out in the CA course, it may not work in other fields as well. You do not have to live your life in fear.
After about three years of taking the CA course, life becomes really complicated for many CA students.
You face a lot of distractions, unable to study but you fill your exam forms and when it comes your exam time, you don’t feel confident of passing, so you choose to skip writing your CA exams, and then, months and years go by, you become clueless, you feel frustrated and guilty and stuck. This thing happens. If this has been your case, know that this thing happens to a lot of CA students who do not progress in the CA course.
But what next? If you’re still stuck, what now?
Well, there are few factors to consider here, and one of them is fear. Specifically, the fear of failure and the fear of the unknown.
1. Fear of failure
If you’ve been filling the exam forms and then find out you’re unable to study for your exams, and when it comes your exam time, you feel under-confident, and hence you choose to skip writing your exams.
Your reason for skipping your CA exams can also be that you don’t want to write your exams and then see yourself fail at it, because when your result gets declared and it comes as a fail, there will be people asking you about your result and it will then be a shame and an embarrassment every time people ask you about your result. This can also be one of the driving force silently directing you to skip your exams and you may not even know that this was what was making you skip.
If you have even a slight hint that the above can be one of your reasons to skip your CA exams, then you likely have, sometimes invisible, fear of failure and the resulting shame and embarrassment. And choosing to skip your exams as a result of these are not recommended even if you feel you have not prepared enough for your exams and hence are likely to fail.
If you want to go on to become CA, it is important that you do whatever is helpful for you to move ahead in the CA course, and even if it is likely that you are going to fail, it is better you still go and write your CA exams because even if you fail, you will have gained a lot of insights after you write your CA exams rather than choosing to skip writing because of your silent fear. You will be in a better position to know what worked and what did not work, and then prepare yourself better in writing your CA exams the next time.
2. Fear of the unknown
Well, if the CA course did not work out for you after spending three or five years in it, then it is sometimes okay to let go of it and move on in your life.
You do not have to get stuck in life as a result of the decision you made some three or five years ago, to opt for the CA course, especially if you think or feel that most of the subjects you are required to study in the CA course do not really interest you and hence you would not like to have a career in such fields.
In this case, it is better for you to find out what kind of work and career deeply interests you in life and begin to get involved in it a bit so that you will get a hint of, if you choose to move on from the CA course and into this field, whether you will be able to make a good career in it.
You may face ‘fears’ along the way considering the fact that it has not worked out in the CA course, it may not work in other fields as well. You don’t have to live your life in ‘fear.’ It is sometimes better to go ahead, take some good initiatives, try it out and see if it works than to let yourself get overtaken by fear and do nothing helpful.
