Throughout our whole lives people seem to be asking “What are you gonna be when you’re older?” or “What are you gonna do with your life” and a lot of the time the answer is “I don’t know” or “Im gonna be (insert occupation)” and you never end up doing that.
When people ask me that question I always reply with “I’ll work it out” and then get into deep thought about how lost I am and end up freaking out! anyone else do that?!
I’ve always been the one to plan everything, I stay organised with my life and at 18 if you asked me that question, I would of known in a second! “I’m gonna be a real estate agent!”. I knew exactly where I wanted to be in 5 years and knew what I was gonna do with myself – fast forward to 5 years later and just now i’m starting to figure it out!
In the past 5 years my interests have definitely changed. From being enrolled in a commerce degree – I thought there were so many things I could do with my life like being a Manager, a real estate agent, a property developer, a HR manager, and the list goes on. Only to become highly confused because we have so many choices out there, we freak out, become lost, and try to search and search and search for that one thing that is going to determine the rest of our lives.
Most people today ARE lost!
The one tip I can give you my friends is to….
FIND OUT WHAT YOU LOVE DOING!
FIND OUT WHAT TALENTS YOU HAVE!
No one can figure that out, but you..
To be honest – In high school I SUCKED! at English – I struggled to write anything and believe me, my english score was not the best! but here I am today, created my second blog, writing, blogging, helping others and I never thought I was going to do that.
Everyone is good at something!
So to answer the question
‘Where are you going to be in 5 years time?’
I don’t know. I don’t even know what i’m doing tomorrow. What I do know is that I want to be married, with a house, and maybe 1 kid if we are financially stable!
I also know that everything will end up being okay and everything will work itself out if I stick with what i’m good at doing, but I think thats what makes life so exciting and spontaneous.
