Want free career or academic advice
from a professional?

Went to college, majored in automotive for 1year before realizing not the way i want to spen rest of life. Still have passion for automotive but after working in 2 dealerships over course of 2 1/2 years i feel burned out on automotive. I know thats just the negative experience. I want that fire to be reignited or need help finding out what im to do with my life. Im extremely hands on person not, afraid of hard work, an entrepreneurial mentality. If any suggestions id be more than greatful

I have really been thinking about it and i keep coming back to psychology. I've been reading a psych college text book for a while now and taking notes and i'ts really been keeping my attention. I think i'd like to try it. Psychology that is. Im jus afraid that it will turn out like my experience with automotive in college. I guess my biggest reservation is its an expensive trial and error process to figure out whats right for me.

I completely understand your hesitation in this matter. The beauty of this entire situation and life itself is that it is all an experiment! Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best, " Life is all an experiment, the more you make the better!"

I encourage you to alleviate some of the pressure you're feeling by giving yourself permission to well---fail! You can't really know what is going to work, what you're going to learn, or what is not going to work by sitting back wallowing in your fears. Your fire will be ignited when you dig deep within yourself to truly get to the core of what you have to offer the world! By this, I mean, you may have to go to some places you never thought you would have to go. I believe that your calling is where your wounding (or experience is).

I help people turn their lives around and beat the odds of their circumstance for a living. I've been an entrepreneur since I was 21 years old. I could never work for anyone, and I was HORRIBLE at sales! Once I got onto the path of digging deep into myself and my life, my calling was clear...very clear. I was an expert already and didn't even know it, I just had to stop my textbook thinking. If psychology has your interest, perhaps there is something that you can do that will allow you to put that education to use. However, I promise you if you don't apply that education to something you're personally passionate about- you will end up 20 years down the line worse off than you are today- incomplete and dissatisfied with all the time spent.

Dig.

Good Luck!

Sales is physiology http://adf.ly/ZtXrM sell online talk about cars, review cars, drive traffic to a blog about cars....lifestyle is your definition

You don't want to "do" anything...you want to BE something...be free, be able to travel be able to drive nice cars, be able to live where you want to live etc...
