What do you want to be when you grow up?

I had absolutely NO idea what I wanted to be when I grew up. In fact, I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I was in my twenties!

I have a friend, Nik Halik, who I heard on the radio this morning talking about how he knew what he wanted to be when he was FOUR years old!

He talked about how he knew at four that he was going to become an astronaut, not that he wanted to become one and that to me is amazing! If only I had that much certainty in my life as a child, a teen and then in my twenties! Imagine how different my life could have been!

What I get from what Nik said, was that he was so confident he was going to become an astronaut, there was no “wishing” about it – he was going to become one and that was that!

Of course he had to become a millionaire to be able to achieve that goal – and that’s very interesting. He didn’t have a goal to become a millionaire. He had a goal to become an astronaut, for which he had to become a millionaire in order to achieve that goal (it’s a VERY expensive goal to have, apparently, so becoming a millionaire was an automatic requirement!).

Very interesting and something to think about if you’re wishing you won the lottery! Why not think about why you want all of that money instead? What would you buy, what would you do with that money? That’s what your goal should ba all about!


  1. I have never wanted to grow up and I think I am going to the right direction to accomplish that.

    Zoltan, there are many people in the world just like you, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing – in fact, you’re probably having more fun in life than most!

    That’s what makes the world such a diverse and interesting place – people are so different!
