I’m 29 years old, and I’m not sure I’ve found my “thing” yet.
I write this blog, I consult with businesses, and I help them make more money. I show businesses how to use the internet to grow their business and make more money. I do a little of this and a bit of that.
However, I’m not sure I’ve found the “thing” yet.
You know the “thing” right? The “thing” that wakes you up every morning with a burning desire to go out there and get-em. You’ve got it right?
If you go to bed Sunday night and simply can’t wait for the five days ahead, then you’ve found your “thing.”
I was never able to say in my earlier years, “this is what I want to do when I grow up.”
Here I am all grown up, and I still can’t say exactly what that is.
Guidance counselors, teachers, and peers used to make me feel like this was inadequate. After all, most people had it all figured out. They would go off and become teachers, police officer, accountants, advertisers, bankers, restaurant managers etc…
I remember being told that eventually you just had to “decide and pick something.”
I’ve never been able to “just decide and pick” my life, and it used to scare the pants off me.
The nice thing is that I’m not bothered by it anymore.
It used to scare me that I couldn’t just decide.
It used to scare me how easily I could jump between hobbies and try new things.
It used to scare me how I could so easily attempt new business ventures by moving from one extreme to another.
But it doesn’t scare me anymore. It excites me now.
It excites me because I’ve learned that I don’t need to be looking for the “thing.”
What excites me about it isn’t that I can’t settle down, I’m excited because there is something not allowing me to settle down.
Am I looking for a “thing” or is some-“thing” looking for me?
Either way, in my mind, it’s way more exciting than the alternative.
