The first and foremost thing is that perceptions regarding MBA bringing respect in the society is not true at all. Instead, I would say that this is a false belief of yours about life. No doubt, it is a prestigious degree but it cannot always assure you respect and happiness in your life.
Let me give you an example:
Have you heard about Sandeep Maheswari? He dropped out in 3rd year BCom from Kirorimal college.
He tried a lot of things and at last succeeded. He is now 32 years old and one of the successful entrepreneurs in India. He is the founder and CEO of imagesbazaar.com, the world's largest collection of Indian images with over 10 lakh photographs shot by more than 10,000 photographers. Apart from these, he is also a motivational speaker and conducts free seminars for people where he shares his experiences with the audience. He helped people to deal with their failures and fight back as winner through his inspirational speech. People respect him for his never-say-die attitude towards life and hardly care about his degree.
The second issue you mentioned in your query is that you are not happy with your job. If you are not satisfied, then what are you waiting for. Switch over to some other career option that makes you happy. If you want to be happy, dare to take risk and come out of your comfort zone. But don’t take decisions in a hurried manner. Ask yourself what it is you really like to do. What are you good at? What would make you happy? Be honest and sensible while taking any decision regarding the career change.
Finally, you said that you are upset about your failure in CAT exam. Every successful person experienced failure in their life but they chose to deal with their failures is what made them successful, So believe in yourself and go ahead with confidence. If you sincerely want to do MBA , start the preparation from today onwards. Accept the reality of your failure in the exam. Try to find out the reason behind your failure, give up your casual attitude (“CAT to ho jaayega”) and work hard to achieve the target. Success will be yours. All the best for your exam.
