Not knowing what you want and not knowing how to get there are two different things. It’s possible that somewhere within you, you do know what you want. If you know what your passion is, then in a sense you do know what you want; you just don’t know how to get it.

Before you decide to move on, you may want to make sure that you have pursued your dream the best that you could, so that you’ll always know you tried.

The most important thing to do is to not settle on anything or anyone just because you’re trying to meet a deadline. People have accomplished their goals later in life than they would have hoped and have been happy. On the other hand, people have settled for things so that everything fits into their timeline and have become quite unhappy. A timeline is a good guideline, but don’t make it the rule at the expense of long-term happiness. It’s not that important! Hold out for what you really want.

You must try everything that piques your interest, and many times you have to try those things that scare you.
