I'm goal-less

I'm so confused with myself and I don't know what to do with my future. I don't know what job to get and everyone else around me are always so sure of themselves. I don't know what I should do because my dream job is impossible to achieve and is unrealistic. What do I do?


Re: I'm goal-less

Hi @LeFreak,


Sorry to hear you don't know what to do with your future and feel like everyone else is so sure of themselves. Some people are really good at giving this impression about their life but perhaps many are simply making their way through one day at a time, too. Is there something in particular that makes you feel your dream job is impossible to achieve? Would you be comfortable sharing your dream job here with us?

Re: I'm goal-less

Hi @LeFreak  and welcome to the forums.  I think just the fact that you know you want to get a job of some sort is a good place to start. That's a goal in itself.  

If your dream job was possible, just say it was - what would the steps be that are needed to get there?  Is it further training?   Are there steps up a ladder to get to it?  

If you want to talk more just @tag me  and I'll answer when I can.   Eth
