Here are some things to consider before making a career choice.

1. What subject did you enjoy learning when you were younger. Either secondary school or primary school. This shows your innate tendency.

2. Consider things that you'll will do even if no one paid you for it. Choosing a career is not all about the money but about will make you happy in the long run. Most lucrative careers are extremely competitive and in the long run if you lack passion you'd run out of steam and end up being a failure.

3. Take your time. Don't rush into a path simply because your friends are doing it. Use the time to learn essential life skills and try new things. In the course of this you'll find something you are really passionate about.

I totally agree with you but Nigeria's educational system does not really support this method of career adoption because most times, what you apply to study in tertiary institutions isn't what they offer you sometimes

Point two is talking about passion and that is the drive word. When you are passionate about a thing, you do everything humanly possible to achieve it. So is career;  choosing a career goes with passion and if your choice is out of passion, you may end up working under durex, in pressure just because all your interests in the carrier was money. So, money supposed not to be the determinant of choice of carrier but interests and passion.

But if you go to other country you wight enjoy what you want to study

In Nigeria 🇳🇬  today, choosing a career choice is not in anyway dependent of the course you feel is very related to you. Today, many people we're forced to chose career choices to suite the desires of his parents, guidance or mentors, but once that individual doesn't work towards becoming that person in future on his/her own, they might never cut a niche for themselves.

1. Your Happiness
It may sound cliché, but the number one thing that you should consider when choosing a career is your own happiness. Don’t be pressured into becoming an accountant if you hate numbers just because you think it’s the right thing to do; instead, pursue something you’re truly interested in.
2. Marketability
Of course, while happiness should be prioritized, you also want to focus on a realistic and viable career option. By pursuing a skill that’s marketable, and that you’re good at, you’ll ensure that you have an opportunity to work (for money) in the future. Non-marketable pursuits should be reserved as hobbies.
3. Social Environment
If you’re a people person then you’ll want to consider the social environment in which you’ll work. While introverts may be comfortable at a desk job, extroverts often require more stimulation. Choose a career that fits your social needs.
4. Your Work Style
Each individual has his or her own unique work style . Some enjoy deadlines and structure, while others thrive with little guidance or management. Make sure the career path that you choose is conducive with the environment in which you do best.
5. Your Priorities
As you think about your future career you should make a list of your top priorities. How will you achieve a work-life balance? What’s most important to you – having kids? Enjoying home cooked meals? Or are you more driven by the idea of career success and industry? Before pursuing a career path, figure out what your priorities are – it could save you a lot of time and money in the future!

To be successful in your career, you must first of all love your career. Put your mind in something you cherish because you will always be motivated to succeed in it. Don't choose a career because of the money you get from it. Later you maybe frustrated. Do something you love as it will keep the fire burning.

Well to me!! Choosing a carrier is one of the most drastic and crucial decision can make. Therefore before you take a decision to choose your carrier I suggest you consider the following 

* your hobby

*your temperament, it matters a lot 

*your communication skills I.e outspoken or not 

The environment you love most 

*your childhood vision 

*your talent 

I think with these one can carefully choose a lifetime carrier

choosing a career is more than doing what makes you happy, i think you should also consider other things like will i make enough money out of it so that i can also be independent or does the course suit my economy?  other things are like can i cope in the course of studying it? etc

Doing what you enjoy.

I feel this should be really stressed on. There is a certain type of passion that is present when doing the career you have genuine love and interest for. There is more effort which equals more  rewards than doing a career just to not be tagged a failure.

Passion is the most important thing when picking a career, if you're working and you're not happy and comfortable with the kind of career youryou have chosen, you will end up failing in a way irrespective of the amount you get paid. So do what makes you happy and what you're very good at. Everyone is special in a way

You forgot to add job opportunity and job relevance. There are many "lucrative courses" you could study but if no one is ready to hire you, it will end in tears. There are many irrelevant courses in Nigerian universities that will never get you a job.

Yes, you don't have to rush yourself while choosing a career. I could remember my cousin came to me to seek for advice that his friends are into fashion so, he won't mind going into it. I asked him a questions that did he have a dream about the so called fashion, all he could said was he doesn't have a dream just to be seeing his friends all day. In a nut shell, I adviced him not to go into it because of friends and he does that. Thanks to God, he is now a successful barber.

Well I will say in a country like Nigeria choosing a career doesn't have anything to do with your education  and discipline in totality, in Nigeria you see graduate in political science ended up being an accountant, does that tally? What will just suggest is we should all be educated and also do something with our hands because Nigeria today is not after what u study in school it's what u can offer to the nation, what you know, what u can do with your hands.
