How old were you when you realized which career path to follow?
I'm 40 and still wondering what I want to be when I grow up.

I've never known. There are always different possibilities. One of my dreams for years is to be an architect. Hasn't happened yet, but I'm waiting until the kids are out of the house before attempting the dream.
It totally depends upon your upbringing. I am from India, wherein there is a great divide between self employed/entrepreneurs and working class. The question arises which part I belong to, if I belong to self employed class, then I know from the age of 15 that I have to support my father in business, then either I'll join just after finishing my hi-school or after graduation. In case I belong to working class, I know that I have to study hard to do something substantial. In this case, I'll know that I'll be working as an employee, however the career path is decided on two factors - 1) My interest area 2) In case I fail to pursue my dream area, what is the fall back option. For example : I wish to pursue my career in Cricket, I might join High school team initially and might get selected in junior college team there after. However, I will be pursuing my studies simultaneously through Humanities stream, which requires less amount of study effort. In this way, in case I fail to make my career in Cricket, I will still be eligible for applying for Post graduation or atleast Public Sector Unit jobs.
Do revert in case you feel that I am wrong...
