So you're like countless others who went to college to appease their parents and make them happy by, doing the so called "right thing". At first you were super hyped to be starting on this new profound venture.
You even thought you knew what you wanted to study, but upon enetering school, you changed your major several times only to still feel clueless and unhappy with your choice.
Or, maybe you have no thoughts of what you want to do in the future nor do you have any thoughts of how you want your life to be. It's more of just a matter of surviving from one day to the next.
When you don’t know exactly what you want to do, planning for the future can feel totally overwhelming.
Life is literally a continuous road of non-stop learning. The path can seem like it's never-ending to say the least. It can be filled with many battles and hurdels to get over. But that's the beauty of it all.
“Not knowing what you want is a lot better than knowing exactly what you want but not being able to get it, at least you have hope.” – Unknown
Each of these steps significantly impacts the type of path you'll take.
What Am I Really Passionate About—and Why?
As you consider your next career move, you should think about what makes you excited to wake up every day—but don’t stop there. For every interest or passion, really try to pinpoint what about it gets you most excited.
It’s also helpful to try out some things that will let you explore your interests a bit more—think volunteer projects, side hustles, and informational interviews. Pay attention to what moves you—and what you think might move you, but doesn’t. The goal is to dig until you reach the foundation of the passion.
