Many people at some point in their lives get lost and can’t figure out what they want to do with their lives. Finding out what you can do with your life is not an easy task, nor is it too complicated. When you are confuse about your career, lifestyle or any other thing, a few exercises can help you to find out what you really want to do with your life.
Ask yourself the question ‘Where do you see yourself in next five years?’ The question works for job interviews, financial plans or even personal goals. It is very hard to answer the question correctly.
The question is useful, as it forces you to focus on your future. You pick up something to pursue. Most people pick a job title; but instead you should pick up a lifestyle to pursue, that will enable you to find out what you are really interested in.
Write a Personal Manifesto
This will tell you where your stand is on certain ideas. Pick specific topic s like how many hours you want to work or how you want to commute. Write down your beliefs and intentions.
Use positive and strong languages when you write your personal manifesto. Personal manifesto lets you figure out how you perceive yourself or how you want to move forward.
Try Different Things
Try voluntary jobs if you are not sure what you want to do with your life. This way you can try many types of jobs, without committing to any and finally decide what you want to be. Try out various side projects you are interested in or your hobbies. See if you can take your hobbies further into making a career.
What you should do with your life is entirely up to you. You can seek help if you want to, for example, visit a psychic to know about your future, but the ultimate decision lies in you.
