Growing up we don’t really have a clear vision of what we want to do or become with our lives. Personally growing up I wanted to play basketball in the NBA because sports was so hyped for me growing up. Then I stopped playing basketball and I started back at stage 1. Often times though millennials are doing different careers because their parents want them to and they think their parents know what’s best for them. Following what your parents envision for you can land you in a career field that you hate and regret.
We love our parents, but our lives are for us to cultivate on our own. If you’re passionate about something you should go after it 100% without the concerns and opinions of others distracting you in your way of getting there. This may be hard to do trust me I KNOW, but you have to be able to take that extra step into getting where you want to go. For me personally, I changed my major in college to psychology from accounting. It took me a while to make that change but I didn’t see myself sitting at a desk numerous hours of the day. I wanted to be able to truly help impact others lives and encourage them to be the best version of themselves that they can be. In order for me to do that, I had to put myself in a proper position to accomplish my goal.
It May Take A While, Don’t Be Discouraged
I see people who give up on what they truly desire in life all because of their lack of patience of the process. They do things and draw up game plans that either doesn’t work or don’t work fast enough and they get discouraged. When things like this happen you have to stay persistent regardless of the circumstances because only strong minded surviving. If you break down mentally and give up you’ll never get their obviously. Take time to look at your life from a bird's eye view and figure out the things you may be doing wrong. Take notes of these things and make that transition.
Enjoy The Journey
The most important things that you have to do is enjoy the journey. Although life can be a rollercoaster with its ups and downs you have to be able to find that inner joy that keeps you going. The training of doing this is because once you reach that top spot in your life you can always look back at the things that you had to maneuver through to get where are today.
