What do you want to be when you grow up?
I don’t know! WHO KNOWS! Right?
When you was 3, probably you wanted to be Peter Pan.
When you was 5, probably, you wanted to be an artist.
When you was 10, you wanted to be an astronaut.
When you was 17, you wanted to be rich and famous.
And now, here you are…still unable to figure out what you want to be in life.
And Ohhhh man! That’s really tough. It’s discouraging, distressing and even depressing not knowing who you want to be. It feels like something in you is missing.
So my dear friend, if right now you feel extremely confused and really don’t know what you want to be in your life, this video might help.
TRY and always live your life your own way.
Peace to the world! 🙂
What do you want to be when you grow up? I don’t know. I don’t know.
It’s such a dumb question and it puts so much pressure on your shoulder, because:
Number 1. You think you should find out what it is before is too late.
Number 2. Because you hope that one day Amazon will deliver to your doorstep a box with the decisive answer.
But, before we go further, I have to be honest with you. I probably don’t know a darn thing about life. I haven’t explored all the fascinating aspects of my existence yet.
But, probably, even the Buddha didn’t know everything. He knew enough, but not everything.
I am sure he did not know what Youtube is.
I am sure he didn’t know that Earth isn’t flat.
He didn’t know how to make an awesome pizza.
I am absolutely sure, He didn’t know that Tiny Hands Trump would run for president of The United States.
But sometimes I believe that I know more than many self-proclaimed gurus out there , that say: “Hey, If you want to find your passion and get what you want out of life you must decide exactly what you want.”
How should I decide, exactly, what I want, if I don’t know what I want out of life?
The problem is the question itself.
“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
It doesn’t make any sense. It’s painful, distressing and useless. And the answers you’re trying to elaborate on this question are often very very meaningless. So, do yourself a favour. Stop wandering what do you want to be, because you’re grew up. Whether you are in college, climbing the corporate ladder or in retirement, in that moment, you have the experiences and the knowledge to make decisions on your future. You just have to experiment new things, to try, try and try and learn more about yourself every single day.
YOU MUST TRY.
You must throw yourself into something that somehow grab your attention. You must jump into it, faithfully embracing the unknown.
YOU MUST TRY.
Try to unleash your inner Van Gogh, even if you suck at drawing. Try to get into shape. Try to laugh more. Try to be more creative.
YOU MUST TRY to move your destiny on a different path. You must always try something new, especially things that you once were afraid of trying. You must jump into something that makes you feel uncomfortable so that you won’t have regrets later on.
