No Idea What to Do

My life has been good so far. I'm not struggling or anything like other people. I've been well provided by my parents and there's nothing to complain about. My family's not perfect but it's an ideal to most people. My problem is I don't even know what will happen to me.. say ten years from now? I don't know what will happen to me. Of course no one really knows what will happen. What I'm trying to say is I don't know what path to take. I might end up just another bum at home relying on my parents. I wouldn't want that. Exactly how will I find out what I want to do with my life? These questions often pop into my mind.

You sound like your still very young. If this is the case you have some time to make this decision on your own. you can find a career path that interests you and take some classes. after that you can find a job and get your own money.

Well, for starters, you are on the right track. You know why. Because I have started asking questions about what you want to do with your life. That's a good question. Now, you need to start looking for answers. The next thing that you need to do is ask yourself what would you like to be. It will, of course, depend on how old are you. For example, you may want to become a medical doctor, a psychologist, or you may want to go into construction work, or become a musician. I mean just explore the options. What is it that makes you feel passionate. Then you need to find out if you do have the aptitude for it. You may want to be a singer, but you may not have the talent to become one. So, you will need to drop that. Once you do find a thing that you are interested in and have the aptitude as well, you need to write down the steps and follow it. You really can do it. Just don't give up.

Sounds to me you are a young person just about to embark on the most precious adventure of your life. Experiencing things. If it is any indication ,the fact that you are worried about what your future may bring is already a positive sign that the moment something you like comes up,you will probably grab on to it like a bull on the horns. Meantime i suggest you not worry too much, you have been blessed already with a secure environment and most probably a loving and warm family,count your blessings and just live a day at a time, something will happen if you keep looking. A real bum will not be bothered about anything at all, and just brush off everything that comes to them. Just don't be like that,come across something promising ,explore it,or go do something extreme or mildly so. Take up scuba diving and get an excuse to travel the world's islands. just live it up when you are young so that when you have settled down at some point in future ,you can reflect back on things you done and loved every minute.

Hi its good that you are thinking ahead for your future. Only you can answer your question. Set a goal for yourself for the next 5 years. Make a concrete goal on what you want to achieve. Write that on paper or on your excel spreadsheet. Decide on what careerpath you would like to take that will eventually achieve that goal. But the most important thing is that do what your heart desires, do what makes you happy and everything will be alright. Don't worry too much. Think positive. You have a bright future ahead of you.

so that's it. every thing is provided by your parents. you got used to it, until it came at this point in time that you have realized something is missing and that you are not doing something for yourself anymore, and for that you felt being left behind, and is now thinking what to do do and where to start...find yourself a job, go out of your comfort zone. use your education and talent.

All you have to do, is to always think positive, do positive things, and you should always believe in what you are doing. With you always think positive and do positive things, you will get the convenience in life. Perhaps, there are difficulties that you have experienced, but you should always be sure you are able to overcome difficulties.

It is often said the best career is doing something you love. Find your interest and start there. It can take along time to figure out what exactly you would like to do. Many adults including myself are still trying to choose a career because the careers we thought we wanted when we were younger didn't work out or our viewpoints have changed.

Life has been good yet you're confused. I would expect if from people who do not have stable families. For sure you have interests and things you want to do in life, start from there maybe it will pinpoint to something :)

I do believe that we are drawing our futures and that we should sketch it more clearly and beautifully done, in order for us to be stable in our future lives!
