I’m 26 years old and never went to college, it never bothered me before but now I am wondering if it’s something I missed out on. I’ve had 3 different jobs in the past 7 years and I haven’t been able to find what I want in life. Every job has been so different. I’m in school now but I’m scared because I don’t know what to major in. I feel so lost and depressed. I honestly hat school but I am pushing myself because I feel like it’s the next logical step.
It’s not from what you do but who you get to be. There’s more satisfaction in becoming someone rather than receiving a pay check. “I stopped a certain mammal from going extinct” “I made 30 grand in a trade deal” I know which ones more impactful for me.
yess! i don't know what i really want ! and i think she is right, at my childhood i was in fear to be punished from my mom maybe this is why I don't have a big dream but i will work to find it i wish i can get a good job and travel the world i don't know if this a dream ?!
Thanks for the Video clip! Sorry for chiming in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you ever tried - Chiveard Discovering Potential Framework (do a search on google)? It is a great one of a kind product for finding your true calling and achieving success minus the hard work. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my best friend Jordan at last got excellent results with it.
Nice Video clip! Excuse me for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you ever tried - Chiveard Discovering Potential Framework (probably on Google)? It is a good exclusive guide for finding your true calling and achieving success without the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my mate at last got astronomical success with it.
I feel like we'd all be freer if we didn't have to rely on our employers for "Benefits" like our health insurance and retirement. it's just absurd the way our system in now, we're basically like serfs.
I would like to live in a world that you mentioned "A world where people stop competing at work because they realize that they are so unique that there's nobody to compete with. Everyone's unique, we don't cross over, we don't have to compete."
Thank you :)
I think anyone can be anything in this world if you have the right mindset you can be anything but what Society has done these days is the system tries to make it harder for you to end the career that you want to achieve if you wanted to work abroad in a career you wanted to achieve they say no. Because now you're in a point system we don't need jobs like that so it makes you lose your inspiration and you feel trapped and blocked and then you have to try and think outside the box to apply in another place and it just becomes a fight so I do believe people can become what they want to achieve but it's not nice when you have to rely on someone to make that happen meaning you've got all the qualifications or the experience you're selling yourself and that person makes it harder for you to get through that door and it's the same as you wanted to move abroad you got your degree you got the qualifications you know you're good at what you do but now you're stuck on a point system because they want more doctors and nurses then in your area of career so it's just f***** up I just feel that no one should put a hold on you and I don't know why we live under a system
It just takes to being your very own online businesses and produce over 16,000 money is to search “fetching wovo space” on Google. Do not delay in learning concerning this approach. On the other hand, the program is evenly unique as it’s highly effective. It boasts outstanding outcomes. What are you waiting for? Give it a try, you will not be sorry!
Those of us who had to grow up with our guards up in dysfunctional homes, there's no hope for us! Lol. There is no solution for another time except to buy the book and get a therapist... 🙄 Great talk for those who came from healthy homes. The rest of us are screwed. Lol.
I beg to differ. If you do a job, let's say selling insurance, and you like the money you make well enough but you can't stand who you have to be (someone who doesn't believe what they are selling, saying. Someone who has to compromise their values at this particular job or with this particular boss) then you are looking at the difference. WHAT you have to do? Sell a product. WHO do you get to be (assuming you don't really like the job) is someone who has to lie, or be uncomfortable selling or some other aspect that doesn't align with who you want to be.
I think my yolk is helping people share their story, giving them a platform for their voice to be heard. I want to be a marketer/ advertising copywriter and a fashion buyer. I admire both occupations because of their ability to help others tell their story. Clothing is a form of self-expression. Being a buyer allows me to help people dress to impress, express, and for comfort. Advertising is about telling the clients story.

"I believe they do know what they want to be, they are just too afraid to speak it, because then they'll have to do something about it" yes true! I think a lot of people spend too much time living in fear.. fear of so much; rejection, failure, falling, quick sand.. (one thing after another) - that they never even tap into their potential! Good speech!
Fortgang for Assembly the problem is ... All the options look good to me, as in they all look equal. But I can't seem to choose one... Whenever I choose one for sometime, my mind wanders off to the other option and if I choose that other option, my kind wanders off to the first one. Moreover, I see myself looking over the cons ONLY of every option.
Hi. Sorry for the Fortgang For Assembly signature. I'm on the wrong account but it is me, Laura Berman Fortgang replying. Biology and science because you are good at it and it could lead to significance (and my guess is it got parental approval, too), a diplomat for significance, management for money and ease (and money can often feel like significance too). So, you are not too old to change your mind many times yet so relax. Creativity can come in to many jobs if you have some freedom and autonomy, not just in an art-based career. Keeping in mind that we have an electronic exchange and I can't delve deep here, look at your criteria. Look at the motivation behind each of the things you mention here. Some will align and be similar--think of the impact you'd like to make, the criteria of what is important to you (you have a handle on that) and do what YOU want. Not what is easier or what your family wants for you and remember just because you're good at something doesn't mean that 'it'. I'm good at crochet and people have suggested I can make it into a business---NO thank you.
Fortgang for Assembly hey! I extended the period. I'm still not sure! I did Biology in undergrad. Now I'm 1 year out of university, completely paralyzed about what I want a career in. I'm always juggling between the idea of becoming a scientist ( because I've studied that and it feels like home and it's use is very important in this world.. it's significant), a diplomat ( authority and doing something significant again) , management (because it avails opportunity to get good jobs) and anything related to design because while I was in college I used to do graphic design as an amateur and I've always thought of myself as a very creative person. But autonomy is very important to me, creativity is, doing something significant so that the effort is worthwhile is. I can't seem to make a decision and the time is flying by very quickly.
So you said for the person who was guarded didn’t dream and there was a solution for another time .... is that time here on you tube?? I need some direction in this area. 50this year and miserable! I need a change but no dreams or ideas. Help!
Sort of helpful. So, if you decide to change careers and want to go in a different direction, HR might not think you are qualified and one might have a difficult time getting into a new industry or field as a result. So many of our job opportunities are limited by the small mindedness of the HR hiring manager. Discover your "yolk" when you are young. If you wait too long to discover your "yolk," the narrow minded hiring managers might mistakenly think you're an expired egg - just keeping with the analogy.
I luv this thanks for the deep content. My question is what u mean exactly by sayin "who your Job allow's you to be " ? Like expressing your true self, becoming a better person in general ? Thank u in advance for the answer

Do you like yourself at your job? Do you like yourself performing your duties? For example if work someplace that mistreats customers and you're expected to follow suit but you don't agree with the policy, would you like who you get to be on your job?
Part time i used to help a guy spiff up or repair old cars to rent to movie studios... when he died I realized that this little part-time gig was the best job I ever had in my life... The guy in question was a very special type of person... There are other people who Supply cars trucks buses motorcycles Etc for movies and commercials... maybe there's another one who's as kind... zany... Fun to be with ... But I doubt it
We might be called to work in a vast parking lot... Cold ..rainy.. dark...windy..icy... but I wouldn't think of stopping until we got the job done... boy do I miss having my buddy and his family
I've done so many things, and at 58, I look back and wonder what I will do next. This is the first real blank page I've seen for a long time. So I am doing this channel as a beginning. It's like - wow. The abyss.
Nice Video! Excuse me for the intrusion, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you thought about - Chiveard Discovering Potential Framework (google it)?

dreams are nice but I'm not in a position to just "change paths" - that is some bourgeoisie 1st world problems right there. Very depressing how UNGRATEFUL and unhappy people are, and how blind to those less fortunate.
Hmm, i wonder. A lot of thoughts after that talk. I guess I wouldn't want to be anyone, I'm already pretty happy with me. Except for the job. I'm 33, work as a computer programmer and really don't know if I want to do what I'm doing or not. I am just doing it and that's it, it's kinda of a habit. I could change career to something, I guess... but no thoughts there either. And I'm not depressed or anything - that's just the way I am, I want to work less and relax and have a vacation more - that's why i need the money.
The problem is that even if you don't, everyone else will - unless you're willing to go freelance/ be self-emplyed. As soon as you're applying for a job the first thing they'll look at is your CV. And it gets harder if you've been out for a few years, say you left your previous position because you wanted to go studying and it hasn't worked out (so you have nothing to show for the attempt) and there's nothing on your CV after that last permanent job apart from a few holiday covers - even if they see you have the skills, it's likely they'll rather hire someone younger who doesn't than someone who has been out of work for a few years.

This is by far, the BEST, insightful video that I have ever seen. There's has to be a follow up, a sequel if you will to this. Please tell that there is. Where can I find you again for further information? Thank you so much.
I always wanted to be a singer. I never had anyone really believe in me to do it and we were poor and didn't even have a car. I discovered simple karaoke years ago and really loved it. I know it's just karaoke but it was a lot of fun. I don't go now due to health issues and I don't want to be approached by drunks, not to mention the fact that I am not that young anymore. Singing touches people's hearts and souls. it's also a universal language.
I’m struggling with having made the vow of never being like my father and that vow having served me well, but not being able to find the new motivation. Fitness and staying in the shape that I want to be in year round.
