Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Prov. 22v6

Prov 22:1-9

A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail.He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor. KJV

If finances are an issue, don't let that keep you from getting the help you need. Check with your public library since some offer career planning help. Also check with local colleges and universities. Most of them have career development offices which may offer services to members of the community. Programs that train career counselors often have students work with members of the community in order to gain experience. What you should end up with is a list of suitable careers based on your self assessment. Obviously you can't do everything on your list, nor will you want to. Here's where you need to do some research. You should begin to gather information about these careers which will include a job description, outlook for the field (will you be able to find a job), and required training and education.
