1) What do you prefer spending time on? Do you enjoy working with data or people, animals?
2) What does make you unique and can help you succeed?
3) What is your natural way of thinking and behaving? Are you a leader or team worker? Do you need a creative or structured/routine work? Do you prefer to work alone or in a group?
4) What values are important to you? For instance, the social justice may be essential for you while financial security (high salary) may be not crucial.
In my opinion, if you know yourself deeply, the chances of success increase. Good luck!
I had a tendency to gravitate to what I enjoyed the most. You'll find that many times our talents are directly related to what comes naturally to us and what makes us happy. We all have talents that are unique to our personalities and experiences, so investing more time into those actions helped to strengthen my ability to do talent-related activities very well.
It was also important that I spoke with adults in the fields that interested me. They were able to tell me more about the pros and cons of professions and what it takes to be successful in them. Real life examples of a career in action gave me a great scope of understanding outside of what I saw on TV or with other external examples.
I hope this helps!
My suggestion to you is "start looking at everything as a profession".
Might sound difficult at once , but this would really help. If you are playing a video game, start thinking how cool it would be to design a game of yourself, if you are in a great museum start thinking how great it would be to design a building.
Slowly, you'll get to know what excites you the most and then from those options start looking at what's your best option.
This also happens to many people as well. You can change your mind any time even you start working.
First of all, you can think about your interest, hobbies, etc. to determine what you would like to do in the future. Then, you can find out more how the career(s) and perhaps talk to the people who work in that industry. There is always difference between the imagination and actual life.
It's no problem to change your mind.
Good Luck! Hope this helps!
As a child give yourself time to discover your strengths and passions, expose yourself to a variety of activities to see what interests you. The last thing would be to have patience and not rush to any conclusions.
