It’s perfectly normal if you never find out “what you want to be when you grow up”. You may well be what experts are calling a “multipotentialite”, someone with many interests and creative pursuits instead of someone with one specific calling. And know what? That’s really ok.
Modern popular culture brings us up to believe that we are only successful if we are really good and passionate at one big thing (like being a great surgeon, lawyer or restauranteur). More often than not however, this doesn’t happen. You end up with a lifetime of self-doubt and wonder why you can never pinpoint the one thing you are most passionate about. Is there something wrong with me? Am I going to succeed at anything? Why do I have to choose just one career?
Which is why this presentation by Emily Wapnick is so timely and so so appreciated. If only this video could have existed decades ago! 🙂
