"You don't have to be Great to Start... But you Have to Start to be Great"
Have you ever felt like you were meant for more that you are doing?
People see the talent in me that I don't have enough faith in. People put me on a pedestal and see me as so great and I just don't feel it. But at the same time, I know I could be great if I just pushed myself!!! WHY CANT I PUSH MYSELF?!

I have never pushed myself to learn to drive, and I've given myself the excuse of not having the money.
I don't try to find auditions, my excuse is I don't have the confidence.
I've never had a job, my excuse had always been wanting to focus on education.... which has now finished.

On the one hand I am very mature for my age, I'm great at giving advice and helping others.... but when it comes to sailing my own boat in life, taking charge of my own desires and talents... I am just overwhelmed and useless.

I wish Motivation came in a bottle!

Agree and I recall Al Pacino quote from Scent of a woman " always knew what the right path was. Without exception, I knew. But I never took it. You know why? It was too damn hard."
Yeah that is the issue its too damn hard to be a person you want, I know its not helping but its the truth.

It sounds like you need a Higher Power than yourself!

I agree with you and like your honesty.
Keep your head up!!!!!

Hopefully by the time your in your 40s you will have some idea...

I have a feeling I'm going to have to hit a rock bottom in life for it to kick in.... which I dont really want to happen. I feel like I have to go through some 'really low stage' to bring it out of me. Why must these things take so long -_-

Rock bottom sucks and not in a good way. Trust me!! Please look back at your young life and really look and then look at the desires of your heart, speak them out loud and continue to speak them until they come to you. It works

I just don't really know how? .. I cant tell what I want to do anymore or what makes me happy. As I said, great helping others with this stuff.... but my mind draws a blank!

Maybe write it out on paper. Likes and dislikes in life and go from there. You are asking so that tells me you are a good person, so put those negative thoughts under your feet. And think positive and look back at the list and focus on the positive things.
