From the outside, everyone in life is doing great. I look at friends’ LinkedIn profiles from school and they are smashing it. Professional looking photos in suits and their CVs are on point. It’s easy to think, “I’m so far behind”.
Life is one big blag. No one really knows what he or she is doing and the ones that seem like they do are just really good at faking it. Okay, some people may have a very defined career path and everything has gone to plan, but that doesn’t mean that they have it all figured out. I am now twenty-seven years old. When I was a child, twenty-seven seemed old and I thought I would have it all figured out by now. Nope.
I have a lot of friends who are doing very well in their careers and I have asked if they feel the same way. They do. I don’t want to sound big headed, but I know my stuff. I spend a large chunk of my free time reading about training and nutrition and I am bloomin’ good at my job. Yet I still feel like I am ‘winging it’ a lot of the time.
We learn the social etiquette and we learn the professional codes that allow us to progress up the career ladder and grow our businesses. But why should we all have to pretend that it’s so easy and such smooth sailing. Life is tough. Why can’t we all be a bit more honest with each other and make this journey of life a little bit less stressful.
I don’t know what I am going to be doing in my life ten years from now. I know that I want to grow Finely Tuned Fitness to help as many people as possible to improve their health. But I have no idea how this will pan out and that doesn’t actually bother me that much. In fact, it excites me to think of all the possibilities and routes that I can take.
