Don't panic! I didn't realize what I wanted to be until I was around 28...and I am still figuring it out. Definitely go to college, but don't feel like you have to stick to a major early on. Try different things and experiment, but don't hold yourself to the idea that you have to have everything figured out...because you don't.
I thought I knew what I wanted by my senior year of high school. However, after an internship my Junior year of college I realized where I was suppose to be. I changed my major my junior year and I have 2 more years to go.
My point: Don't worry :) You have so much time to figure out what you want to do. I suggest some career counseling with career tests and Strength Finder 2.0 if this is something that is stressing you out, that's how I found out my calling.
I may be in school for an extra 2 years but I'm studying to do what I know I'm meant to do so I'm not upset, I'm motivated.
Don't sweat it. I heard a statistic that the average college student changes his or her major 3 times. So you see, even if you thought you already know what you wanted to pursue, there is a good chance that will change anyway.
Relax. It is not mandatory that you "Know What You Want" to do in life.
However, it is perfect time to start accessing what your interest are. What do you enjoy doing? What are your hobbies? Let's start there, then we can move to a possible college major. You are in a perfect place!
Hey don't worry. My friends who are 30+ still do not know what they want to do, including me. But trying to research online or reading books, talking to others about their career and volunteering helps a lot.
Relax because when I went to college, taking the basic courses and reading the descriptions helped people choose their road.
Take free online career surveys (your school should have this too) which will help you see your talents, likes and dislikes in a job and will give you suggestions.
Take it one day at a time searching.
Look at stuff you are interested in.
putting stuff together
being a leader
so on and so forth...
then hopefully you will find the category you fit in to.
Hello, First of all stop the freak out. That is pressure on you that is not needed. Many people and I mean many do not know what they want to do while they are in high school. That is a big question. Also of the people that I know that "did know" what they wanted to do in high school have changed professions later in life. So again take the pressure off yourself. In fact say to yourself.."it is ok I do not know now what I want to do"
Now some thought work:
