“It is an uneasy lot at best, to be what we call highly taught and yet not to enjoy: to be present at this great spectacle of life and never to be liberated from a small hungry shivering self — never to be fully possessed by the glory we behold, never to have our consciousness rapturously transformed into the vividness of a thought, the ardor of a passion, the energy of an action, but always to be scholarly and uninspired, ambitious and timid, scrupulous and dim-sighted.”

How to Figure Out What to do with your Life

1. Begin by imagining your dreams have come true. What would your life look like? What would you be doing? How would you be making money? Where would you be living? What would you be doing in your spare time? What sorts of people would you be with?

2. Try reading some inspirational blogs, autobiographies or self help books. Often those help to uncover our passions, and the kind of person we really want to be.

3. Surround yourself with positive and motivated people – those who know what they want and are consciously going after it.

4. Take up a hobby that really interests you. There’s usually a reason that we’re drawn to certain things.

5. Ask other people who know you well, what they think would suit your personality. You’ll often be surprised by the kinds of things you learn.

6. Decide to ‘face your fears and do it anyway’. Don’t live a narrow life because you’re plagued by fear.
