Do you feel stuck in life? Are you feeling down because you don’t feel accomplished?
Or more importantly, what do you feel like doing now?
Sometimes, we overthink and find ourselves frozen, and although this may be appropriate at times, it can be the root of our pain and suffering.
If you follow this logic, then you will probably never be happy or satisfied because you are always looking for something in the future, in that, once you have obtained enough money, then you can finally enjoy yourself. However, in that whole time you are searching for more and more, you are not truly enjoying yourself, which is a waste.
I think it is more important to enjoy yourself right now. Put money aside for a moment and ask yourself, what do I feel like doing right now? What is it that I really have fun doing?
For example, if you are playing the guitar, pretend you are a famous rockstar guitarist and move your fingers to a rhythm. It’s ok if it doesn’t sound good. Once you find a small rhythm, you’ll see that you are really getting a kick out of it. You can also do this with drawing or painting too. If you see musicians play in concert, you can see from their expressions that they are really having fun.
What can you do for work that allows you to play for money? Don’t be afraid that you won’t make money from it.
--Alan Watts said this in one of his lectures. Here is an excellent YouTube video by Spiritual Mind illustrating an Alan Watts lecture perfectly.
So, just do whatever you really have fun doing or are interested in and the rest will follow.
