How to decide what you want to do with your life.
Do you think about your future and what it will be like everyday?
Do you think about how much you can’t decide what career choice is for you, what house you’ll live in, or even who you will marry?
Maybe you cry sometimes because you think you’re wasting your time by not having that job you need already.
Not having a spouse or many friends to talk to.
Stress is something I really deal with when I think about my future. I always think I have to have my life completely together all right now and I have no time to waste. It is all very stressful.
If you seem to have this same issue then here are some tips to figuring out your crazy life and how I cope with that pit of nothingness you keep coming down to.
1. Remember who you are:
First step in preparing for the successful future you think you’re coming to is to remember where you came from. You’re home is your comfort. Whether it be the house you grew up in, the friends you’ve always had, or even the sport you are/were so involved in. Remembering these things about your past is what make you who you are today and give you something to come back to when things get hard (when getting to your successful future).
2. Know what you’re skilled at:
You have a talent even if you don’t think so. Sit down and write everything you love to do and things you think you do well (think small and big). Everyone has that special something that they believe is their main interest/hobby. You CAN turn your special talent into a career, you just have to find ways to make it happen. Dig into anything and everything you can find. Get sponsors, friends, coworkers, employees, and even family that are willing to help you on your journey called life. Don’t think of yourself as medicore because that will make you mediocore. If you believe you are the best at what you do, then you will be the best. Compete and compare so you can challenge yourself to be the best at what you love most.

3. Become what you want in a relaxing manner:
Once you’ve figured out what you love most in life then begin by just living. You may not have to start your career yet or go out and find that person you want to spend your life with yet. JUST LIVE. You dont have to meet any expectations for anything or anyone. You’re here to please yourself. Stop the stress and think about what is most important.. YOU.
You don’t have to always know what you want in life yet. Just start from the beginning of this post and start from there again and if the answers arent coming to you then go out and find what makes you the most happy. Sometimes it’s more easy to let things come to you. You get the best out of life when you begin chasing after nothing. Sometimes you learn new things in life that you never knew you’d love so much. Change as a person, because change is what shapes you into you. You can become whoever you want whenever you want. Stop stressing and believe that it will come to you when you just live and breathe in the things you learn to love. That house, special someone, or certain career will come if you put in the effort, but you have to first live and find yourself.
