How do you know what you're supposed to do with your life?

Imagine you've won a lot of money, say enough to never have to worry about money again. You don't have to work but you'd be very bored otherwise. Now what job would you do to fill your time and bring you satisfaction? It needn't necessarily be something that requires money to do... More

I don't know you, where you come from or your past. It is hard to really plan for the future, because you never know what is going to happen. This is corny..but listen to Baz Luhrman's "Everybody's free to Wear Sun Screen" Even if you have heard it before, listen to it again. There is some truth to it.

No, it is not clear cut, for a lot of life plan or fate is luck and circumstance. We like to think we can control everything and take charge but really for the majority of us that just is not true if the opportunity does not present. Make rough plans but also allow for change of heart, you can meet someone or gain... More

There are more options for you if you are very intellectual. There are less options for you if you are more talented and less intellectual.

Because we are such complex humans. We tend to try a variety of things. And sometimes you switch in the middle. Bottom line. Do what works.. if it doesn't and your not happy. Figure out something that you like to do and try that... More

there are so many options, just try out things, and maybe you'll make the wrong choice, but you can always change, just take the path that'd be harder to do when you're older, like college or med school.

I think that every person should have goals and dreams, but I do not think you should stick to them so closely or have high expectations of them such that you are not open to other opportunities that come your way and that may also be interesting. I believe in preparing for many possibilities and always have two or... More

I say follow your heart,and if you feel good about it, its right for you.Not many can say,well this is what I'am suppose to do because only you no what that is. You have to sometimes fail in order to come out on top. Feeling good about yourself comes first, everything else will fall into place.

If you live completely in the present and not dwell on the past or the future. You will know when it crops up.
Answered By: Helena N - 4/6/2007
You don't. Some people are steered into successful lives by their childhood environment. Those are fortunate but very few. The rest of us have to figure it all out on our own. My suggestion is that you ask yourself what you would really like to do if everything paid the same salary.
