Preferably somewhere you think you want, or are studying, to work, even if it is for free, or just over a holiday. One of the problems you face at 18 is that you often don’t know what you want to do with your life, or you are mistaken about it. This is OK and to be expected because you simply haven’t yet had the opportunity to experience, to try it out. In fact, given time, you eventually end up finding out.However, there is a weakness to simply waiting for things to sort themselves out. You could waste a lot of time learning the wrong things, in the wrong course, and going to the wrong school. Not to mention the intrinsic lack of motivation that you face if you don’t yet have a solid idea of what you want out of life or a career.So, what can you do to improve your chances of moving down the right path?? Get a job!!! I mean, if you are planning to spend the next 35 years in a job, or 4 to 7 years studying a course, the getting a sneak peek at how you really feel about it by actually working in a position, job or something like it is at the minimum.So get a JOB!P.S. getting a job does not guarantee that you find what you are looking for or make the right decision. But it will grant you a significant amount of confidence and purpose, especially if you explore somewhere you plan on working in. And if you work in the area you plan on specializing in at university and so forth, it makes it easier to motivate yourself to study and to know what you need to study. Not to mention the mentoring and insider advice you would receive.0Login to Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on Google plusShare on WhatsAppChimaeze Ijebu Ode, Nigeria 0 Questions 2 Answers 0 Best Answers 13 Points View Profile Chimaeze New Member Added an answer on November 15, 2018 at 11:01 pm You have to increase your time with God.
