Not knowing what you want to do in life can be one of the most destructive things to your success, it can literally leave your life stagnant. If you don’t know what you want to do how could you possibly work toward it? People spend their entire lives in a job that goes against who they are as a person, they feel drained and stressed at the end of a days work. But people don’t have to feel that way there are some simple steps that you need to follow to get on the right path. Everyone has the right to love their life.
Realise How Important You Are
Spend some time being selfish and self absorbed, other people are important too but it’s no good helping them at the cost of your own wellbeing. Don’t focus on the expectations that people have of you, don’t stick to the stereotype ‘American Dream’. If you act in the way that other people want you to then you will get to the end of your life and regret it all. If your only on Earth once then you may as well do what you want.
Find Out What You Hate Doing
Chances are if you are reading this you are living a life that you don’t love. Ask yourself what don’t I like about my life? If I could change anything what would I change? Who makes me feel bad? Am I go against some of my life values by doing what I do? Once you know what it is you don’t want to do then you’ve already narrowed down your search.
What Do You Love Doing?
It may be that you haven’t done anything that you really love in years. Try looking back to the time you were at school, what was it that you loved then. Think back to a time where you were happy more times than not and ask yourself: what was different about my life then? But if you find it hard to think of a time that you have ever been truly happy then you need to go out their and experiment, try new things, be adventurous and outgoing.
Forget About The Insignificant Things
Every day people find stress in their lives over meaningless things like what they are going to wear or their friend is annoyed at them. Reflect on your life and separate things that really matter to you from things that don’t. Dedicate some time every day to forgetting about superficial things, forget what people think about you and live your life.
Now you know what you want in life, double, no triple your expectations. Dream higher than you think ever possible to achieve, you may be more successful than you thought.
