How to prepare for the future when you don’t even know what you want to do

Know and embrace the value of life

Your life is the most valuable thing in the world. You have only this one life to live. So, spend it doing something fun. Stop wasting your life waiting for something. Start doing what you love, start chasing your dreams, start doing all the things you want to do. Know how much value your time has and embrace it by being picky on what to spend it on.

If you adapt a positive Mindset around the value of time you will automatically act with more purpose each day, which then will lead to more meaning in your overall life.

Have dreams and goals

Everyone has at least one dream. Even if it’s just a little one. And dreams are fantastic. They give us the opportunity to imagine whatever we want. So, take the time to dream. Think of all the things you would want to have. Then set goals to achieve those dreams.

Practice curiosity

Learning new things, questioning the ordinary and practicing curiosity is a great way to expand your horizon.

If you constantly ask questions and seek for learning new things you will later have a broad skillset of knowledge you can use to do whatever destiny meant for you to do.

Try new things

Same goes for trying new things. The more things you try the more likely it will be that you come across something that you love so much that you want to build a future around.

So especially if you have no clue about what you want to do in the future, this is essential. Trying new things of every kind will not only expand your skill set but also discover new passions.

Focus on each area of your life that is important for happiness

What you can always do to prepare for the future without knowing how it’s going to look like is working on the areas that are crucial for your happiness.

Because like I said above, happiness is the key to a successful future, a successful life even.

If you don’t know what areas are crucial to your happiness, you might want to focus on your physical and mental health, personal development, social relationships, financial situation, passions and fun areas as well as skillsets at the least.

Having goals and ambitions in each of those areas will help you to get the most out of them and therefore bring you great happiness in every day.

Work towards something bigger

It doesn’t matter if it is something you can imagine building a future on or if it is only something you enjoy doing at the moment, working towards improvement and transformation in one area can be very rewarding. It will not only teach you a lot about that thing but also about yourself and the world.

So, find something you are passionate about and start a project around it. Set goals and work towards becoming or improving in that area or create something huge around this thing you love doing.

Think of ways in which you want to make the world a better place. Choose on something you want to leave behind once you’re gone. What is it that you want to give back to the world?

Focus on it and make it happen.


Work towards becoming a better person

Lastly, you can not only work towards making the world a better place, you can also work towards becoming a better person.

Every future is going to be awesome if you are at your best. If you know yourself, if you constantly grow and want to improve you will be best prepared for everything the future has in store for you. Good and bad. You will be able to overcome struggles and face challenges. You will master setbacks and win in life because you are strong, you are confident, you are your best self!
