1. Make up in your mind that you want to control your own destiny: Complaining and placing blame regarding your current situation doesn’t change anything. Any sort of physical discomfort causes a physical reaction. The same is true with mental discomfort. When you’re not happy and don’t feel good about where your life is going, realize you can change it. Just make up your mind.
2. Peacefully reflect on what types of things really interest you:
Quiet, peaceful thought allows you to hear yourself without the interference of the outside world. Find that quiet place, relax and allow yourself to hear what makes you happy, what you really like and are interested in. Make a list of these items. There is opportunity to profit in everything that gives you pleasure but you must first find out what that is.
3. Identify what your true and natural skill set is:
We all have gifts. Some of those gifts we were born with, others we have developed over time. What are they? You may be creative, analytical, mechanical or even charismatic. Whatever your talents are, identify them and list them.
