The Ultimate Source for Understanding Yourself and others

I dont know what i want in life

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

I dont know what i want in life

I dont know what i want in life
I dont know what i want to do with my life
I dont know what i want to be
and i don't know what goals i should set

Do these phrases sound familiar? They are phrases that come to the mind of many people who feel that they are lost and that they don't know what they want in life.

I always get mails from readers who tell me that they want to be happy but they don't know what they want in life. In this article i will tell you exactly how to find what you want in life.

This is what to do if you don't know what you want in life

If you don't know what you want in life then ask yourself those questions

Are you happy with your life?
Is this the life you always wanted to live?
Do you wake up with a smile on your face each day or do you get nightmares?
Do you feel satisfied with your financial position?
Are you happy with your social life?

Sometimes finding out what you want in life is as simple as finding out what you don't want in life. If you hate the fact that you can hardly pay your bills then you certainly want to be rich.

If you hate the fact that you are shy then you want to build self confidence.

If you hate the fact that you are always stressed then you want a stress free life.

If you don't know what you want in life then you can simply find clues after examining the level of your satisfaction with your current life.

Do you really don't know what you want in life

Sometimes people say that they don't know what they want in life while in fact they are deceiving themselves. Here are few examples of people who claim that they don't know what they want in life because of other reasons:

  • Fear: A person who is afraid to take an important step in life might give the excuse that he don't know what he wants to do in life while in fact he is just trying to hide his fears (see What is real courage)
  • Procrastination and self regulation: I had many friends who claimed that they don't know what they wanted in life while in fact they were 100% aware of the things that can make them happy. They even started moving towards these goals but few weeks later they stopped because of procrastination, lack of self discipline and lack of self regulation
  • Lack of self confidence: In the Solid Self confidence program i said that many people give certain excuses like not knowing what to do with their lives just to hide the fact that they are afraid to test their abilities and that they are not sure of themselves.

If you are one of those people then your problem is not about knowing what you want with your life but its rather being afraid to go after it.

Now that you know what you want in life

I am not saying that life is rosy, that everything you ever wanted will come from the first attempt or that all your problems can end in a month or two.

But what i am sure of is that if you fought hard and brave enough for what you want you will get it in the end.

If you really wanted to get something out of life then fight hard for it.
