Not Sure What You Want Out Of Your Life?
Figuring out what you want sounds like an easy task, but often times it's not. Think about it, when was the last time you couldn't decide what you wanted to eat for dinner?
That is a minor example, but there are much bigger situations where it really matters. Figuring out what you want to do with your life is one of the most important things you can do. This also might change through the years so if you ever become unhappy, you should always re-evaluate what you want.
Getting inside your own head to figure all of this out is a skill though and it's a skill that most people haven't perfected.
THAT'S OK THOUGH!
I have 14 prompts/questions here to help you get to the bottom of YOU. Download the free worksheet below too!
These can tell you a lot about yourself, whether it’s finding a new career path, a new hobby, or just understanding what makes you truly happy so you can make some changes in your life to incorporate those things.
Write them down and analyze each one. See if any themes emerge. Were most of your activities creative? Scientific? Outdoors? Indoors? Alone or in a group?
These should be detailed, specific strengths. Think sentences, not single words like nice, patient, etc.
Even if you are not in a good place right now and can’t think of anything recently that has done this, think back to your childhood, or any time you remember as a happy period.
First of all, this question comes with a hitch. Be wary that social media can glamorize people’s lives. While it's ok to look up to some social media icons, just keep that in my mind while answering this.
This can still be a valuable tool though. If you identify WHY you are jealous of these people, actual tangible things, you might figure out the direction you want your life to go.
For example: Is it because they own their own business so they have flexible hours and can work from home? Is it because they are in great shape? Is it because they always seem to be out and having fun?
Writing down your answers really helps with this exercise and it honestly makes a difference. Even if you think it's silly, give it a try.
