So many of us don't actually know what we want in life. But we have to make a living and keep paying the bills so we tend to fall into the “just carrying on” category of life. We’re not really living we’re just doing what we need to do until we figure out what we want to do. The majority of people actually do find what they want to do in life, so it can feel like you’re the odd one out when you certainly haven’t reached that point yet. But rest assured you’re by no means alone in your search. You have to look around you and ask yourself what makes you happy, and sometimes you need to do that in your mind too. It depends on your personality usually, but other times you simply just don’t know. Here are some things you can do to find yourself a career.
What is your hobby?
If you truly don’t know which way the winds blows when it comes to your professional career, then you should look closer to home. Do you have a hobby? More than likely you enjoy doing something that you know won’t give you any kind of monetary reward. We all do things in our spare time that simply give us pleasure to do. It could be painting cutlery or designing clothes. It could be being part of a car club and learning about different engines and chassis’. It might be writing short stories or even something uncommon as falconry. Try to figure out why you like doing these things and point out the key aspects of your pleasure. You might not be able to find a job that is associated with your hobby, but you can match the traits to another kind of job that will.
Do something adventurous
If you’re stuck in a rut and you’re just sat at home thinking about what you want to do, you may find better success by getting up and doing something adventurous. You never know what you could end up finding out about your life when you are on the move and doing different things. Rather than finding what you want to do, you could do a series of deductions and then boil down what you want in life. Do something that will keep you occupied such as find a job on a yacht.
You’ll be sailing around different parts of the world, doing tasks like waiting on guests, helping parties to have a relaxing few days on the water or simply being on hand for a company that wants extra help. You get paid of course and you’ll be able to find out if doing something active like this is for you.
It might seem like you’re running out of time the older you get, but finding something you can dedicate yourself to, comes in time and experience. So don’t rush, take your time but keep questioning yourself.
Many people don’t know what they want in life and they never seem to ask the right questions about themselves. When you’re active, you’re at least seeing the world, earning money and able to deduce what you will like and what you won’t.
