I like my course but I'm not good at it. What to do?

December 13, 2012 8:45am CST
I really like Accountancy and that's my current course. I'm still on the first year of college and I find Accountancy very difficult. I study but nothing happens, I mean I think it doesn't help. And now I'm going to stop my studies for a while just to think if I will still continue taking Accountancy even though it is a hard time for me or shift into an easier course which will pressure me. And another thing it takes 5 years to finish Accountancy while 4 for other course. I want to graduate in 4 years. What should I do? Help me, I'm only 16.

Hi Yang! Welcome to mylot. Reading your post, i understood that either you are in a dilemma of choosing Accountancy over other subjects or you fear that the course you opted might not help you in your future. It's good to know that you took a break to decide which will be good for you. If i am not wrong,(i am not a commerce student) you can become a CA after your course..is that so? There are good scope for that post. People here in mylot(for ex. Me) can only share our views upon this. Rest assured, you are the one to take decisions, isn't it? Please confirm with your family or friend on what choice will be best suited taking in consideration, your life's goals and the nature of the course. I wish you good luck in your endeavor. Have fun at mylot. Keep sharing.

The point is to just get started on something and see where it takes you. Remember: Any creative endeavor is a process, not an event. If you’re focused on the outcome, you’re not in the process. In fact, if you’re on the outcome, on fear of rejection, or on the applause you hope to get at the end.
