Most people know, not what they want, but what they don’t want. If you fall into this category, then use that to your advantage. You are not completely lost if you at least know what it is that you don’t like. If you don’t feel alive doing what you do, then you are not in the right field. However, this does not include aspects that will lead you towards your ultimate goal. If you do not know what your goal is, first ask yourself what you can do for others. How can you add value to the world? Then ask yourself what you enjoy doing, and is good at or can be potentially good at. Once, you’ve figured those questions out, think about how you can combine those things. Every single person on this planet has a story or skill that he or she can share, that’ll benefit a population of the world. Forget about money for a second because when people find you helpful, they are very willing to pay you. You may not realize that you have this thing that’s unique to you, but let me tell you a story before you forfeit.
Dr. Joe Vitale, best selling author and public speaker once had a young female student, who was in her 20’s. She was broke and didn’t think she any particular skill. She didn’t think that she had anything that she could offer to others. But, when Dr. Vitale asked her about her hobbies, something caught his attention. This girl taught herself to play the guitar in a weekend. As a music lover himself, Dr. Vitale inquired her about it. He then encouraged her to write an e-book. She was doubtful about it’s success at first because similar products already exist. However, Dr. Vitale pushed her by stating that, people are always looking for the most efficient way to accomplish their goals. If there is a faster and better way to complete a task, people will buy into it. Knowing that Dr. Vitale has achieved success in his life, the student went on to write her e-book. Within a short time span, she made over $10,000.
Everyone, including you have something to offer. Everyone knows something that someone else doesn’t. You have something to share that will solve someone else’s problem. Life isn’t about the resources, but how resourceful you can be. It’s about how creative you can get. Creativity is finding how you can utilize your available resources. Many times people say that they are not creative, but truth is, they’re lazy. Creativity requires much concentration and time. Once, you accept that fact and realize that you are 100% responsible for your own life, your life will start to change.
