1. Identify your talents and skills
The truth is, you want to find a career field you will be good at, and in order to do that you have to identify your talents and skills. So, write down everything you’re good at. And I don’t mean things like math, science, and all of those things we get tested on in school, I mean things outside of school. 

Maybe you are really good with kids, or maybe you are very artistic, or you might be good at fixing things, whatever it is write it down. After you do that try to figure out how you could find a career path doing these things you are good at.

2. Illuminate limiting belief systems. 
This one is kind of deep. 

Many of us grow up hearing a lot of limiting belief systems and these belief systems can have a huge impact on our future. That being said, we must identify these limiting belief systems and illuminate them from our life before they ruin our life. 

One limiting belief system many of us grow up hearing is, in order to be successful we need to make a lot of money. Although it is not bad to want to make a lot of money, we shouldn’t choose a career path just for the money. 

If you are interested in other fields that will not give you the opportunity to make as much money don’t shy away from it. You are going to be much happier doing a job you love than a job you hate but pays well. 

So all that being said, go through some of your belief systems, are these belief systems empowering you? Or are they limiting you? If they are limiting you, how can you illuminate them for your life?

3. Think back to a time you felt impacted 
Identifying the things that have impacted you is another great way to find a career path. Think back to a time a teacher made you feel special and good about yourself, do you want to be that person to someone else someday? Was there a guest speaker that you loved? What stood out to you about that person? Were you involved in things like science fairs, clubs, and activities? What did you like about those things? How did those things make you light up? Oftentimes the things that impacted us guide us towards a passion, so follow that passion. Don’t be so quick to dismiss those moments of your life. 

4. Identify your passions and purpose
Similar to identifying your talents and skills, knowing your passions and purpose will help you find a career path you actually like. When thinking about finding a career, make sure you think about your various passions, because if you are not passionate about the thing you do, you are going to be miserable. 

Most of spend a lot of time freaking out about the future and instead of trying to find a path to follow we do nothing. We sit around stressing out. You don’t have to do that. You can start now and do things that will prepare you for the future. 

One thing you can do is go out and interview others. Job shadow individuals doing the jobs you wish yourself doing. Go out and volunteer in your community. The more you go out and do things the better off you’re going to be. You are going to set yourself apart from your peers, make connections, and most of all you are going to have a much better understanding of what you like and don’t like which will help narrow down your career path tremendously.

At the end of the day it is important to know you don’t have to have it all figured out, trust me no one has it all figured out. Instead do these little things, prepare yourself, work hard, and be willing to put yourself out there.
