Are you a Multipotentialite?
Have you ever dreaded about what to do with your life? Every agonized over that one thing you are supposed to be doing?
I have. I do it all the time. I'm doing it as we speak, as I write this blog post.
But what if there is no such thing as "one thing"?
What if we have been raised to think that we are supposed to pick one thing that we're destined to do and stick with it. Do you remember your parents and teachers talking about the "options" out there? Doctors, lawyer, teacher, veterinarian. And there as so much pressure to slot yourself into one of those positions. And that doesn't end when you are an adult. You're supposed to be a manager, or a financial analyst, or a real estate agent. Pick one, because if you don't then you'll just "drift".
If you have felt this way (or currently feel this way) then this TED Talk by Emilie Wapnick might be worth watching. In it she introduces the concept of multipotentialites. I'd love to hear from you if you think this describes you. Let's chat. I'm a multipotentialite, too.
