I Don’t Know What to Do with My Life
If I had a dollar for every time I hear someone say, I don’t know what to do with my life, I’d be very rich.
I recently received this question from a subscriber: I want to find true meaning in life and what I’m doing, not just doing it because it’s easy for me to do to make money. And I don’t want to compromise, but rather enhance my lifestyle along the way.
This is another version of I don’t know what to do with my life. It’s the same as asking what should I do with my life when you can’t figure out what your passion is.
Let me ask you, is what this person asked that what you want too?
It’s possible there is a small percentage of my subscribers that are all about the money. But the majority of you are looking for the same meaningful, lifestyle enhancing work that this person is. That’s why you are one of my subscribers.
Don’t worry, you can still make the big bucks, and have your life be everything you want it to be. Personally, the number one priority of my business is to fulfill my soul as I am of service to my clients.
What am I good at?
Haven’t you always been told that to be successful you have to be focused on what your clients want, not what you want?
That’s true once you already know what it is that makes you happy.
It’s pretty common to say, I don’t know what to do. Also asking, what am I good at?
It’s not easy for most people to just rattle off what their talents are.
Before you can be concerned about how you will fulfill the desires of your clients, you get to pick who they will be and how you will best serve them by deciding what makes you happy!
And that’s the place most people get stuck. You can’t answer what makes you happy, at least not in clear, laser-focused terms. And that’s where the problem starts.
When I was in high school I told my guidance counselor I wanted to be a Realtor. He almost laughed me out of the office. Where I grew up people didn’t think it was necessary for girls to go to college.
If I couldn’t be a Realtor, because an authority figure told me I couldn’t, I had no idea what I wanted to do. I had several jobs just to pay the bills. Some could have been a career and some clearly not.
But it didn’t matter because the whole time I was just waiting to be old enough to be a Realtor, although nobody clued me into what age I would qualify.
While some people spin around in circles doing meaningless but well-paying works for years or even a lifetime, it was 4 years for me. I became a Realtor at 22, still very young.
Thank God I knew what I wanted to do, but the reason I did was that I paid attention to what was going on in my life and what worked and what didn’t. I learned to ask myself some very important questions that gave me the answers I needed.
Those same questions will open the door to the answers you’re looking for.
Go with Purpose
Here’s what I’ve learned over the years that I’ve been helping people create a blueprint for their lives:
Most people have never even considered that they can consciously choose…
- What they do for a living
- Where they live
- How they spend their time
- Who they spend time with
Over my 3 decade career in sales, as a sales manager and sales trainer, I believed it was important for my salespeople to make those lifestyle choices if they were going to be truly happy and successful.
Even for career salespeople money loses its power to motivate if you don’t know what you want the money to do for you. There has to be a bigger goal. You have to have a clear vision for your life to sustain success long term.
You have a choice in every area of your life. The biggest choice you make every day is whether you will take action to make a different choice than the one you’ve been making on a daily basis.
Questions are the answer to everything in life, it’s all about asking yourself the right questions to get access to the information you want to know.
All the answers are already inside of you. You just need some help getting the answers. You need a new way of accessing that information.
Very few people can do this to a high level on their own. If you’d like me to help you, let’s talk.
Until next time, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Just comment on this post here or on Facebook.
