As we get older and start realizing that we have to make decisions on our own. The terrifying and infamous adult “what do you want to be when you grow up?” – is one question that haunts us for the rest of our lives.
In our lives we will battle life choices; where to go to college, who to date, and what kind of career do I want?
These questions start eating away at our subconscious at a very young age. They begin to develop to full blow psychological scares around high school graduation time. They are labeled depression, stress, and anxiety. (Click this link if you want to know more about these very serious conditions.)
A good portion finds what they are good at early on – others it might take some more time maybe even into your late 20’s or 30’s.
The thing is that we don’t have to have one set career path. There is no need to push for the career you have for so long told yourself you need to be in order to be successful.
You don’t have to choose one career path for the rest of your life – you don’t need a 401k in order to consider your life a success. That might be our parents or grandparents definition of success but not ours.
We are always so focused on the destinations. What we will be doing when we are 20 – 30 – 40. The matter is so superfluous if you ask me.
Do I want to leave a lasting impact on the world? Yes. That is my personal definition of success. How I do that is up to me though! I might die at the ripe old age of 100 and had multiple careers and still loved every single one of them.
Life is a journey.
That means that you can love more than one person in a lifetime or have several careers. If you lose your lust for life in one place – then move to another!
We were not meant to stay in one place our whole lives; Humans have a history of roaming. Find something that challenges you and if you become the master, find something else.
Forget about end goals and destinations and become great at the journey. Problem-solving, being open-minded, and loving with a ferocity that is almost intimidating are all skills and abilities that will only lead to a greater life.
Live your best life by forgetting the destination.
