So 25 and haven’t figure out what to do with your life…

Yeah sure your quarter life have passed and You are not a kid anymore but it is that late. At 25 for most people it’s like now or never you have to decide your future plans. Maybe not achieve something but atleast have directions. An idea of future and how you want it to be. The point is that when you get into your late 20s you realize that the future isn’t going to be a distant thing forever. It is coming for you. I always assumed I’d be really successful at my career, but is that actually going to become a reality? At 22 your trajectory can go anywhere but by 28 you kind of get a feel for how valuable you are. So 25 is a crucial age. You can extrapolate better and see if you’re really as good as you thought you were going to be. There’s less hope that you’ll wake up tomorrow and your life will start. You realize that this isn’t actually a thing that happens. You have to slowly claw your way to all the things you want, they don’t just come to you as a free gift for having aged another five years. Coz 30 is like its over, Right. No!

I am not saying that you should do nothing. You should have a career and that you will but don’t expect to be successful at 25 or 30. Embrace your journey towards the success.

Being around so many overachievers like billionaires snapchat founder Evan speigel and John collison of spite have accomplished so much at 25 makes you feel useless or lacking sometimes, doesn’t it. The truth is you might get old but life never gets old. It’s never too late to start a new adventure and get your way through it. Wanna know a secret the later you achieve the more it lasts.

Do you think it’s late for you, look at this list of amazing talents who got taste of success much later in life and they were as clueless as you are now.

1. Colonel Harlan Sanders

Wanna know at what age did he launch his successful food chain KFC … He was 65 and was total hopeless with life  but he made wonders with his ideas, hard work and little bit patience.

2. Alan Rickman.

He got his first movie role at the age of 42. So the amazing Severus snape or Colonel Christopher Brandon if you saw sense and sensibility had to wait too with that acting talent and mesmerising voice.R.I.P Alan Rickman.

Some other late bloomers are J.k.Rowling, Sylvester Stallone, Momofuku Ando (the 40 plus guy who invented instant noodles) among many others.
So IT’S NEVER TOO LATE, it might be hard or may require some patience but somehow how will find your way or as they say the purpose of your life or the reason you were born. All you need is to keep making mistakes and learning from it and trying new things and finding your passion.

  1. baby steps is what mom always said. don’t rush into anything. everything will happen in due time. I truly believe it, I just crossed the first year of 30 and even though I have some plan for the near future, nothing is set in stone… we turn one pebble at the time! it’s all a magic puzzle of life and missing pieces are found everywhere…

    great insight!

  2. I can sympathise with this post.
    I’m twenty-three and I still don’t know what I’m doing with life.
    My parents disagree with my career choice and keep hounding me to drop my wants and my likes in favour of further education. I’m not totally against the choices available to me, but it’s just not what I want to do.

    1. Don’t worry. You will figure it out. That’s what life is all about. Just keep trying and keep making mistakes that way when they ask what you want you don’t have to guess you will know!
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me.😊😊. All the best.

  3. Love! I’m 29 and I homeschool my 2 kids. I never thought this is where I would be, but you know what, I wouldn’t change it for anything. I don’t know what the heck I’m going to do when they are no longer home with me every day (I’ve been a stay at home mom for 8 years, and who knows what happened to the “old me”) but I guess I’ll figure that out when the time comes. Until then, I’m just going to enjoy the life I live 🙂

  4. I’m 32 ad still have no idea where my life is going! I had a plan at 18 about where I was heading in life, and then life and things I couldn’t control like my health got in the way! Now I’m just focusing on being happy and healthy. Try not to out too much stress on yourself or let others stress you out. Why should we all have some grand plan?

  5. Completely relate to this. I’m 22 and my parents keep making a stink about how I graduated last year and my career hasn’t really taken off yet. I work mainly to keep busy in the meantime, but I’m always stressing about when “IT” is going to happen. Thanks for sharing your story.
