If you cannot relate to people who have always known what they wanted to do with their lives, this episode is for you. If you don’t know what you want to do with your life or if you feel you want to restart your life, then you are not alone. You are in good company.

Tune in to learn how to figure out your next steps in life by starting with the end in mind.

Key Takeaways To Tune In For

  • To figure out what you want to do with your life, you must have some level of self-awareness. How do you see yourself living your life? 
  • Figure out what your ideal life is and work backwards. Always start with the end in mind. 
  • Explore every avenue that you feel like exploring. If it doesn’t work, that’s fine. It is better than living with regret.
  • You don’t have to monetize all your hobbies, but you never know how your hobby may turn into a career. 
  • You always learn the most from painful situations. They have all prepared you to become who you are at this point in time.
  • Not everything you engage in has to be for the long term. Some things can just take place for a season. Every season is another building block forming the person you are.
  • Not limiting yourself to a specific box can help you move out of your comfort zone and try new things. 
  • To actually achieve your goals, you need to create automated systems that help you achieve your goals. 
  • It is in your power to choose what you want to do. You do not have to do something just because it is deemed more acceptable.
