Your situation is a fairly usual occurrence that is the first sign of a satisfying professional career ahead. So please don’t feel devastated. Actually, you should be relieved on being one of those fortunate people who get a clear indication from their counsellor about the career direction you should take.  It generally takes a lot of brainstorming and consultations before getting uncluttered on this important aspect of your life.

The next question you must tackle is whether you should blindly follow this suggested path or re-consider your original choice?  I will recommend you to discuss your report with a counsellor to get comfortable with the reasoning behind this revelation about yourself. You must have had some justification behind your in.

Trial decision. Don’t give that up so easily. Debate it with your counsellor, parents and other well-wishers who know you as a person.  This hard debating and thinking should continue till you are satisfied.

From my personal experience, I strongly believe that in the long run, it all boils down to your ability to tap opportunities, contribute with your existing skills and learn new skills from your surroundings. Over analyzing can freeze your thought process and create unnecessary fear. You should only be alarmed if a path that you are about to choose looks toxic and suffocating to you. Your self-confidence should not be compromised at any cost.

Your short, as well as long term success, will be closely linked to highly unpredictable human elements like emotional state and motivation of you and your team members. These aspects are very difficult to capture unlike taught skills such as verbal and nonverbal learning. You should always be aware of this big-picture.
