Most people don’t get what they want in life because they don’t know what they want.

Sooner you figure it out. Easier your life will be.

Here’s how I figured out what to do with my life.

What you want to be ?
How many times have you been asked that question?

I was asked at plenty of times.
When I was growing up.

If you asked me, when I was a kid.
I would have said something like King of Narnia or Batman.(Good old times)

But when I was 21.
Straight out of college.
I was depressed trying to figure out what to do in life.

So I sat down and did some research on my own to figure out what to do with my life.

1. Write down your interests.

Everyone knows what to do with life.
You need to listen to your inner voice.
It knows what’s best for you.

But the only thing that stops you from hearing.

Your self doubt.

Sit somewhere and visualize things you want do in life.
You will come up with a lot of cool ideas.

Here are some things I want to do writing, travel vlog, and scuba diving.

2. Start taking action on your dreams today.

Whenever I see people living my dream life.
I always thought why I couldn’t be like that.

What’s stopping me from doing it.
I actually realized it was all because of me.

I can become whatever I want.
I have control over my life.

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” — Walt Disney

So I decided to take action.
This article is the result of that decision.

For a long time I wanted to be a writer.
I want to share my thoughts and help people’s lives.
So I decided to write everyday.

3. Journal your feelings everyday about that interest.

You will never know until you try.
I can’t say I love writing unless I try it for a while.

Because we think we love doing something.
But we never know the truth until we do it.

So I decided to write every day for the next 30days.
And see how about it.

4. Keep looking until you find what you love.

Work shouldn’t feel like work. Never continue something u don’t enjoy.

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” — Confucius

Life is too short to be bored or miserable. You deserve to have a job that brings you joy.

Keep looking until you find it.

Final thoughts:

(spoiler alert)
We are going to die.
What would you regret when you die?
I will regret not chasing my dreams.

If you don’t like what you’re doing, keep searching for it.
Talk to people, learn from others, test out different paths.
We’ve got one life.
Let’s do something we love.

See you tomorrow with another awesome article.
