I have always had a desire to do something more, as I am sure most of you have as well. And I don't mean something more as in, something more meaningful, or fulfilling. I mean more as in when I have free time I would like to be able to work towards an end goal. I feel kind of stupid not being able to think of something that I want, and am willing to strive for.
A couple things that I think are holding me back is I don't want to pick the wrong thing. What if I choose path A when path B was rewarding. As I type thing, I understand that I just have to go with my gut instinct on the direction I choose. And if it doesn't work out, learn from the experience, and then do it all over again (down a different path).
The second thing that is holding me back is money. I'd reeeaalllyyy like to be able to invest money into the stock market right now. The problem is, I make $40k/year at a commercial bank credit analyst position, and don't have a ton of extra money at the end of the month. Not to mention a significant amount of student loans to pay down. Investing is definitely the option I would pick if nothing was holding me back.
TBH, I am a little nervous that I am almost 30 years old and am only making $40K a year/not being able to do what I want. I am single, and have a fairly decent job (I realize standards are different) with all things considered.
I guess I am just curious what you guys/gals would do if you were in my position. There has to be some people out there in the same boat.
