The future is scary. The question of where do you see yourself in a year is a question that people like to ask. The honest answer is, who knows? The answer can cause stress people out or can be exciting. It depends on your view of the future.
The future is not unknown. It is where stress can come into play. Some people don’t like the unknown. I am a planner and want to know what I am walking into. But I know I can’t control it and like to control things.
The future is not set. It is where you can relieve stress about what will happen. You are in charge of your destiny. Make your future what you want it to be. If you are unhappy about your path, start thinking about what you want to do and taking steps toward getting on that path.
I am nowhere near what I would have said a year ago, but I am an ambitious person, and I want a lot out of my life. I have learned the difficult lesson that only a little goes as planned, and the timeline we make for ourselves only works out when we work hard for it.
Look Toward the Future
Now, I am not saying I don’t make a plan for yourself. It is fun to think about. Finding an answer that excites you will give you something to aspire to. It can provide you with a purpose.
I would treat the answer to the question as a fun exercise. Please don’t take it as what you need to do. Just have fun with it. Imagine the kind of life you want to live. Think about steps you can take to get to the life you want.
