  1. I am deeply convinced that the vast majority of people do not have a vocation. There is a range of activities and interests that are attractive, and a slightly narrower range of activities and interests that can be implemented professionally.�

    In addition, it is quite common for people to have more than one profession in their lifetime.�

    Therefore, I think it is important to consider the following points when choosing an education (if we are talking about it)::

    1. Education is not a life sentence. It is no less likely that you will have to work in different areas and at the intersection of areas, than that you will find one particular area and work only in it for the rest of your life. It is normal and even good to have interests in more than one area.

    2. Evaluate the process, not the result. Try asking yourself what the life of a graphic designer, psychologist, or translator consists of. (Or better yet, ask this question to people in these professions.) Can you imagine a life where you are willing to do this for a few hours every day and have fun?

    3. At the same time, at the initial stages of mastering any field, it is not a fact that this process will bring pleasure, because at the initial stages something very interesting and important rarely happens. Therefore, you need to have some reserve of perseverance to understand and try out.

    4. You won't know if an activity is right for you until you try it. Trying to decide whether a certain profession is your vocation “on the beach” is like guessing at your betrothed by coffee grounds instead of just getting acquainted and communicating. But the feeling of rejection and disgust is a bad foundation for a relationship, if you continue the anology.�

    5. It may turn out that you have unstable attention, that you don't know how to overcome difficulties, need more than one type of activity, don't see a deep meaning in your activity, although you like the process itself, or experience a crisis from the fact that you don't like what you always liked. These are all very common problems that may or may not be related to each other, occur together or singly. Each of them is solvable. Just remember, if you come across something like this, that you have different options than “immediately give up everything forever” and “gritting your teeth, painfully continue.”

  2. Imagine that you will work every day with only one day off a week,your work will always be with you,and now think and decide what you can do for fun every day?I decided on my profession so much and I don't regret it a bit.

  3. Under “who do you want to become” I suspect it says “what specialty should I go to study”? Well, that's up to the individual to decide. Some people only realize in adulthood that their vocation (for example) a doctor, not a manager. If you are completely confused, then go to the history department, my personal opinion is that historical education in a good university is fundamental or it is better to work for a year, during this time a lot can change and you will be more independent and save money for further life and experience. And all these admissions after school at the age of 17-18 with round eyes and a complete lack of understanding of what to do next are incomprehensible to me personally. In Europe, it is perfectly normal to enter at 21 and older, and there are some specialties that are not taken under 21. You can decide for yourself.
