How do I figure out what I want to be when I’m older based off of what I like to do?
I know I like to make people happy, I like getting what I want and I’m pretty good at it (not in a bratty way), I like helping people, and I like accomplishing things. I just don’t know what career these things turn out to be.
It's great that you know what you enjoy doing and where your strengths are. I would suggest taking a few career aptitude tests online to give you an idea of career options that align with your skills and interests. If your school has a guidance or career counselor, I'd also suggests speaking with them about potential career options.
After you've got your list of jobs, you should start looking into what they require, how much they make, and how much of a need is projected for them in the future. Which ones fit within your financial, mental, and emotional wants and needs? Which ones fit within your budget and schedule in terms of education requirements? Try reaching out the people with those jobs to get more of an idea of their day to day to see how appealing it is to you in terms of pay, responsibilities, work place culture, work-life balance, etc
