IAS Government Job

When I started with beta testing of free consultation on Quora, I was expecting that most questions would be around marriage and money. But I was WRONG.
The most frequently asked question was : CAN I BECOME AN IAS OFFICER…? (Indians)
SOOOOO many people ask this question (especially kids from UP) that i have prepared a custom answer to it. Now I publish it on the blog so that all can benefit.
HONESTLY regarding civil services, NO astrologer in the world can successfully answer that one.
If someone claims that he can predict it, grab your wallet and run.
Reasons are as follows:
  1. There are millions of aspirants and very limited seats. One has to go through millions of horoscopes.
  2. Your Hard work matters a lot, a person with a fantastic yoga but less work would be beaten by someone with a good yoga but hard work (sorry but I don’t believe in fooling people…I am HONEST remember?)
  3. Do YOU really want it or you want it because of parental and society pressure (as with most of the kids from UP). If YOU want it with your heart and soul, go for it,
  4. You need to want it for the right reasons, for the JOB CONTENT and not the “Laal Batti” and the reputation that comes with it. If that is the reason, even if you succeed, you would live an empty life.
If you want it for yourself (not your Uncle), try it by all means, but remember this is one of the toughest exams in the world.
Don’t get obsessed or waste 10 years chasing an illusion. Take 2–3 attempts at max, and keep your options open.
Remember Geeta says: You have the right to work, but never to the fruit of work. Keep this in mind and do your work calmly. God Bless
