How to Figure Out What You Really Want

A fake kidnapping scam led career coach Ashley Stahl to conceive of her 3 key steps to finding your life’s purpose. Ashley shares the kidnapping anecdote during her TED Talk at Leiden University and segues into how we kidnap ourselves from the life we actually want. We choose career paths we don’t necessarily want because they are more practical and fear holds us back from following our dreams.

Ashley is insightful and compassionate and her 20 minute talk is a great summary of the steps we can each take to make what she calls a “You Turn” and begin to make changes in the parts of our lives we are unhappy with. My favorite take away is the joy journal. Write down one thing each day that made you happy and with this small step you can begin to focus on the good in your life.
