Surely on more than one occasion, you have asked yourself what to do with your life. Do not worry; it’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves at some point in our lives.
It is easy to live in a routine under imposed rules and models, but for those who seek to find their meaning in life, for those who are looking for something more, I leave here 7 thoughts that will help to have a clearer picture of what to do with his life.
1. What things am I most passionate about?
The first step to living a fuller life is to know what we are passionate about. What do you like? What makes you feel full? What activities or tasks do you like to develop?
Maybe you like to write, draw, or help animals. It’s all about finding out what you want to do and developing it to its full potential.
2. What achievements have I achieved in my life?
Think of all the experiences you have lived so far, think of all the things you have done and of which you feel most proud. How do you feel? Good, right? So, why do not you try to repeat those feelings?
If you loved the feeling you experienced when you helped those animals, or if you loved how you felt when you played that instrument, do it again without hesitation! Continue doing all the things that were satisfactory to you once that will help you to find your identity, and with that to find what you want to do with your life.
3. If my life had no limits, what would I do?
If you had all the money in the world, where would you go? What would you do? And if you had all the time in the world, with whom would you spend it? What would you do? The answers to these questions will help you to know what you want to do with your life.
But watch out! This does not mean you need to have a lot of money or a lot of time to be happy. What it does say is that answering these questions will help you establish an outline of what goals you want to achieve in your life and what path you have to create to reach them.
4. What are my goals?
The goals and objectives to follow are an essential component to establish what we want from life, so answer these questions: What are my physical (health) goals? What are my professional goals? What are my family goals?
Once you answer these questions, you will have a better idea of what you want to do with your life.
5. Who is the person I most admire in the world?
Think about the person you most admire, why do you respect him/her so much? What are your best qualities? What can you learn from it? You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with, so do not waste time with people who prevent you from reaching your goals. Spend more time with positive people, fighters, successful … and you will become one of them.
6. What do I not like to do?
An important question to know what you want to do with your life is to understand what you do not want to do. What things do you not like about your work? What things do you not like about your day to day?
You must be honest with yourself and know that if you do not like something, you must change it. For example, if you hate being still and your job is sitting 6 hours in front of a computer, then you should look for a job that is more mobile.
The issue is that, if you want something to change in your life, then you must take action, you must act and not be passive in front of life.
7. How willing am I to strive to get what I want?
The greatest hits do not touch your door, and you have to make them arrive. And if you want to achieve great things in your life, you must make a great effort.
This means getting out of your comfort zone, spending more time with those people that I mentioned before and being willing to learn as much as possible to get beyond what you ever had in mind.
During the process of all these seemingly small moments that you will probably find the answer to that question with which you set out on the road: what do I want to do with your life?
Start to travel your way. Nobody knows what will bring you, but what you will know is that you will never regret it.
