How to Decide What to Do With Your Life
Just think about how much happier this would make you, and about how many people have built a fortune by
following their passion.
But how can you decide what you want to do with your life so that you can get started right away with these
strategies for finding your life purpose?
Here are three things to stop doing that will help:
1. Being Influenced By the Opinions of Others
As Napoleon Hill, the best-selling author of "Think and Grow Rich," said: "Opinions are the cheapest commodity
on earth." Think about it, everyone you meet has an opinion about what you should do with your life, what is the
"right" or "wrong" course of action, what's smart and what's stupid, what's safe and what's risky... blah, blah,
The problem is that most of these opinions contradict one another and all of them are being given out of someone
else's frame of reference. If you keep listening to these, you'll always be confused, afraid or uncertain about
what you want to do with your life. If you want to decide what you really want, the person you should be speaking
with is always available: you.
2. Chasing Financial Opportunities
Money is great, and anyone who says otherwise is probably going to lie about other things too. But if you are
primary motivation behind determining what you want to do with your life is earning money, there's a very good
chance that you'll never be happy doing it.
This unhappiness will also keep you from doing it well which hurt your ability to earn money doing it. So if you
want to live a successful and fulfilled life, you must stop only chasing after opportunities to earn.
3. Believing in the Word Impossible
The only thing which can ever make your dream possible is the belief that your dream is possible. Do we really
need to go over the long list of people in history who achieved things that others thought were impossible?
Thomas Edison, Walt Disney, the Wright brothers, Roger Bannister, Christopher Columbus,
"The red paperclip guy" (acquired the house in less
than three years through a series of trades which started with a red paperclip), Henry Ford, Pres.
We could go on...but the bottom line is that if you want to accomplish something, you're only cheating yourself
by believing that it's impossible
Three Things to Start Doing
1. Asking Yourself What You Want
Again, if you want what you really want to do with your life, the person you should be speaking with is always
available. Starting tonight, beginning writing in a journal and write down the question: "What are some things
which I MUST do with my life before I die?" or "What's the one thing I've always wanted to do with my life, but
never have for some reason?"
You can probably think of many other questions like this, but these alone will get your subconscious mind
involved in the process of determining what you want and how to get exactly what you want in life.
Yes, it will take you some time...but the sooner you get started, the sooner you can start taking action.
2. Trying New Things Based on the Above Answers
No matter how much you ask yourself about what you really want, the real evidence will come when you start
becoming actively involved in your answers. You might end up trying a few different things before you either narrow
them down to what you want, or discover a bit at a time what your heart's desire is.
Either way, you'll never learn by thinking and inquisition alone. Get physically involved in deciding what you
want, and the answer will come much quicker.
3. Looking for Needs to Fulfill
Ask yourself what you see as being the most important needs in the world, and start finding ways that you can
fill them. This is a great way to determine what is in your heart, because what you see as being the most important
need will be just as much a reflection of your inner desire as it is a reality about the world around you.
