The self will automatically be worked on through the mastery of your chosen field. If you choose the wrong thing you change when you discover the right thing you can switch. It is better to be doing anything, even if it's not the perfect choice, than doing nothing. The change you are looking for will come only after you have made a commitment to change, and demonstrated that commitment by a willingness to move forward, not before or you will be waiting forever.
I have had a problem with this in the past myself. I think part of it is the term life purpose, like it something you have to decide now and correctly or it ♥♥♥♥s up your life and it's not really true. The purpose of life is living with purpose and the activity is really arbitrary. As long as you are doing it with purpose you will learn and grow, that is what's important.
So many do personal development, and so few actually make any real growth or change. To make any real and lasting change you have to be willing to give up everything you know. You must be willing to be uncomfortable and endure transitory anguish, and if you think about it anguish happens anyway so you may as well be getting the potential payoff from it.
You're exactly right, Billy. Time to take action.
