ENFP Advice – How To Succeed in Your Business or Career

So if you are an ENFP there’s a very good chance that you have the tendency let’s say the habit of changing direction and not necessarily acknowledging your change in direction doing this way too often often this is called shiny object syndrome right you start on something when you see something that looks better or maybe this wasn’t as easy as you thought it was you change the next thing and the next thing but what Sen FPS do that’s a little different than a lot of other people is we don’t really acknowledge we’re quitting or we’re changing directions we do it all very suddenly and we just the way our minds basically process things we gradually change and we kind of think that we’re doing what we plan to do but if you look back six months or a year you realize that you’ve got totally off course and you’re not really doing what you meant to be doing now the problem with this i made other videos on dabbling in the dangers of dabbling is that it really eats away your chances of success and the reason is that we’re out there competing in a world of INTJs of infj the people who are pretty focused and dialed in and what they’re doing and consistent and so here we are changing directions every few weeks every few minutes every few months whatever it is how are we going to compete with other people who are basically focused in doing one thing now I know why this has been such a challenge for me in the past and it’s really because we get excited about stuff we like newness is enfps we like things that are novel we like variety we like new challenges that first part of a project is a lot more exciting than the end part right the little details and so what that ends up doing is it ends up pulling us into all these different things that if we don’t have the right systems in place maybe have the right outlook ends up spending a lot of time starting things and never really getting a lot accomplished i’m sure if you were to search for like ENFP blogs you’re going to find the highest number of blogs started and not finished if any and he grew up on the internet and that’s again as we like this starting but I want to go through some things that have really helped me learn to finish things and you’re new to my channel if you haven’t watched my videos are you don’t know my story I well I started out doing a bunch of different entrepreneurial things when I came out of school and most recently was working as a freelancer i use freelancing to help me travel the world I lived in I guess this country number 7 now I’ve lived in and I along the way started writing books i published about 11-12 there’s one I don’t really want to count so if they have published 11 books at this point I built the coaching practice i have online training courses and that so I figured out how to finish things and follow through and despite probably hearing the advice that you got to get a partner to do what you need to have your someone else to be the finisher that is good advice but I’ve done it without having that partner figuring out to do it myself the first thing that really helped me figure this out was changing my perception of time and so if you study NLP or you’re familiar with tony robbins i did my coaching training with him and he has a concept of time basically and how we all have different perceptions of time for some people a minute is a long time for other people a week is nothing a year is nothing you know you have people you meet and if you’re an ENFP this probably isn’t you who had the same job for 10 years 20 years and to them I years nothing I have a friend who’s very much like this where we talk about trip planning you know I’m like oh we’re going to come visit me in Europe and he’s planning two years ahead like it’s 2016 now he’s talking about 2018 we might plan a trip i plan my trip like a month in advance maybe maybe 24 something big and you know so we have different perceptions of time and how long something is an ENFP as we tend to have a mergency in our behavior right where we like to do things quickly we want results now and that is good in many ways as part of our strength part of what allows us to really drive projects and initiating there’s other personality types who will take a year to start their business an ENFP might started in a week on a hunt right and just go for which is awesome the problem is is this perception that things should be quick often leads us to not really stay the course and changes sort of our sense of success so for three months into something or six months into something we start to think oh yeah we fail this isn’t working because we haven’t got the kind of results we have expected because we’re optimists where I deal is we expect good things to happen and so because of this we end up changing her mind or sinking okay this isn’t work let’s try something different and the reality is that especially in the new world now in terms of the internet things take a long time now you might think this is a contradiction right isn’t the internet about making these quick and easy the internet is about making kind of consumers and quick and easy but if you want to be successful in a lot of things like you want to build a youtube channel or a blog or some kind of successful take a podcast where you stand out to people it takes a long time to break through that noise because you know if you’re living in a small town and you start doing public speaking well you’re probably the only person doing public speaking so it’s pretty easy to get a following right away if you come on youtube and you start making videos it might be a year before you get any real traction because there’s so many people and you’re competing with the whole world and so there’s something that I learned around this topic that really helped me get stuck with me it’s something i have in my email like I have this tree email course I teach that I have a whole email around it is its element in motorcycle school so I went to this really cool school for getting my motorcycle license where they used all these military analogies and all this stuff and it was that slow is smooth and smooth is fast so we know people and they said especially guys are really bad with this we have this urgency and when you’re riding a motorbike you try to like force it and that’s not the right way that makes a terrible writer and that really slow subtle movement make you smooth and by being smooth you’re actually fast so if you look at the best racers that the people who are the fastest they’re actually the people who have slow smooth movements and so I start applying this to thinking about my life is that rather than thinking about one week at a time you know like these short things I need successfully success thinking longer-term and having more of a drawn-out goal ok year out and realizing that it will take time to get there I have some friends have done very well in terms of like i’ll use YouTube because we’re on youtube in terms of their YouTube channels and getting a lot of success and what’s been cool as I’ve watched them from the beginning and put in months and months of work with no results and just keep going and I know if that was me I would quit right i would think all this YouTube thing is not working and I’ve actually done that in the past where i put up some videos and sort of quit and not really done anything with it and it was seen how much work actually needs to go into succeed would change my sense of time which is help me basically be more patient and have a longer timeframe and so in terms of applying this the first thing is just to actively think about it I noticed you may be lame advice but just start processing that way of thinking you know k slow is smooth smooth is fast and thinking that ok really i don’t need to be successful or achieve whatever it is you’re trying to achieve in a month you know if it happened in six months or a year or two years that would be pretty good and so kind of focusing on that longer-term and just keep it in my it takes time to get there and reminding yourself of that so if you spend a week working really hard on something and you don’t get any results you’re not going to be as disappointed because you’re coming in with the mental frame that this is going to be hard and when you come in with that mental frame you’re not as disappointed it’s just you know high expectations / optimistic views lead to huge disappointment lead to quitting so if you can reframe that and think okay in a way it’s actually more optimistic because what you’re thinking is ok if i put in a year of hard work i know it will be successful so i’m going to put in that time and I’m not going to change my emotions and react to every bad day or or negative event that happened i’m going to more focus on the long-term the bigger picture one thing that can help with this is having some form of accountability in terms of your goals and your planning i mentioned this earlier in the video enfps we are very good at basically lying to herself BS in ourselves about why we’re changing directions I’ve talked about in other videos the aspect of like lying to ourselves about eating dark chocolate or drinking a bottle of wine like all those antioxidants it’s good for us but you really just want to drink the wine right but you find ways to justify it in FPS are masters of doing this with everything if we want to change direction we can always find a way to do it even if it’s not the right thing to do so if we commit to starting a business we start working on it working on it and something bad happens that makes us feel bad and we just emotionally want to quit we can find a dozen ways to justify that only the economy changed oh I had this job offer this is whatever but really we’re changing our minds or quitting we let ourselves down and so I would encourage you to set kind of concrete destinations you could call them gold you call destinations like where you want to get to what you want to do and when you set that write it down and maybe share it with some people and hold yourself to that say this is where I want to go if I start to lie to myself and change direction and say wait maybe I should go here instead maybe I should do this just being aware that that is a lie right you’re lying to yourself about it and you’re letting your emotions kind of take over and so whatever you write down I also encourage you not to do it on a whim the way I CFPB’s tend to do so write down your your destination and then let it sit for a week kind of think about it really commit to it and in committing to it commit to it right so if you just scribble something down on a piece of paper one day on a win you’re probably not that likely to really commit to it and stick to it because you just emotionally made that decision so try to make something really concrete and then stick with that and that’s going to help a lot with actually changing your perception of time and just staying on course with it ok so back to this perception of time right one of the things that happens with enfps with our sense of urgency with our desire to make things happen quick and this is what I’ve seen in my own life and I’ve seen it i coached enfps at work within FPS 11 is a business coach and stuff which is really interesting because you see your own bad habits in them and it makes it so clear and as probably really helped me as much as in some ways help the client so when you try to go in these little Springs what can happen if you don’t have a unified kind of vision of where you’re going to is that you’ll go this way and then that way and then this way and that way and then back this way and you kind of end up back where you started and I got clarity with this with myself when i SAT back and looked at a couple years of my business where i was busy and I didn’t achieve some things I did grow you know the business in some ways but I look back and realize it because i kept changing directions in terms of like my marketing strategy in different aspects of where i wanted to focus the business I don’t really get that much done that at the end of say two years I look back and I really kind of mapped out like what that actually do and it wasn’t come on focus back on the face autofocus it wasn’t actually that impressive in terms of what i was able to do because i kept changing directions and every time you change direction you reset your progress at least to some extent not fully and so by doing sort of a three-month Sprint let’s try this marketing approach okay i don’t really follow their let’s try this nothing really comes of it and that kind of kicked me in the ass where I just realized that I’d in some ways wasted all this time because i didn’t just focus in one area and just keep going and that was a wake-up call kind of a shock to my system which really helped solidify this so keep that in mind is if you kind of zigzag you keep changing directions you do sprints and they’re not part of a unified vision like something you’re trying to move towards that you may find yourself in the same place a couple years from now and maybe if you look back now over the last couple years that might you know resonate with you where you realize that you’ve been doing the same thing that I was doing so one last little tip and then when the video here and that’s just that you are an ENFP and you have this need for variety you know the ENFP way right where you want excitement you like newness maybe find other ways to meet it aside from your career or your business so whether that’s playing extreme sports are going traveling more or whatever it is for you that will give you excitement when you meet that need for excitement in other places you might not need it in your business so or career whatever I talk about business because it’s kind of my world but this applies for all areas of of your life really if you don’t intentionally proactively meet your need for excitement and for newness newness is important for us right we like novelty new thing if you’re not meeting that need in some way then you’ll unconsciously meet it through probably more destructive ways right so you can choose to do things that are novel that will bring ´excitement´ and be in charge or you can leave it to your unconscious your ENFP need for excitement and then you’ll end up doing things that could be damaging self-sabotage like getting big fights with your partner or always switching who you’re dating or changing your business direction all the time because you need that newness and you’re not meeting that need elsewhere so I really encourage you to proactively meet that need for newness rather than just let it happen to you cool awesome thanks for bearing with me for this video here and that you’ve enjoyed it you know subscribe like the video leave a comment especially I think if you are an ENFP I’d love to hear your story you know does this resonate with you have you been through this you know I’ve as I said I coach some enfps and I’m one myself and I’m fairly a self-reflective guy but i’d love to learn more and kind of if you if you’ve had the same experience and that kind of thing it would be great to share it with with all of us here cool thanks for watching see you in another video

  1. Want to join me and a few other inspiring ENFPs this year? I'm hosting a few events this year in Canada and Europe. Learn more here: https://www.DreamsAroundTheWorld.com/events/ and feel free to comment below if you have any questions.

  2. Do you have a video about ENFP's dealing with rejection? Not just in a relationship, but also in the working field. When you keep getting rejection applying to jobs.

  3. Thanks for the thoughtful content Dan – I relate to everything you said in this video!! I feel like I'm constantly changing my mind and direction, and I have really struggled to choose a career to commit to. I have had well over 20 jobs (I'm 30) and have enrolled in and dropped out of several courses (but have completed 2!). I think a part of the problem is that long term committments are intimidating (because what if I change my mind), I want instant(ish) results and I think sometimes I like the IDEA of things more than actually doing them. I'm reaching a point where I feel really frustrated with being directionless and of (more or less) ending up in the same place I started (and feeling like I have to constantly justify my new ideas to my family). I'm not sure if I'm an ENFP but I certainly relate to all of the ENFP content I've seen on your channel. The approach you've suggested is something I'm actively working on right now. Fingers crossed for some positive changes and progress! 🤞

  4. So happy I found your videos! I'm so inconsistent and want things to happen sooner than later but I have to learn to stay on course.

  5. I have always written off Myers Briggs, but after watching your channel and hearing your advice it has really been helpful to hear this feedback about myself and that i'm not alone.

  6. Man. Yes. X's1000 YES!! You're videos are so insightful, inspiring, and sort of relieving in a way. I tested as an ENFP about a year ago, not knowing anything about the personality types… It's mind blowing how accurate or relatable everything I started reading about the ENFP personality type.
    Being an ENFP can really be fantastic most of the time, but also so frustrating and confusing – so many ups and downs and sideways and that way and oh! That's shiny, look at that! Lol
    I just wanted to drop a line, and really just say thank you. I really wish I would have found your videos years ago. Incredibly helpful! And exciting to start to learn and understand (and sometimes cope or handle) our crazy awesome personality and how/why we're wired this way.
    THANK YOU! 💜💜🙌🏼

  7. Fuck, you made me realise that I fucked my life up till now. I am going to better it because of you! Thanks🤙🏼

  8. What you are talking about here with the change in perception of time came to light for me when I started working out… I realized that success comes to those who are consistent in their small set of daily tasks and finding enjoyment in doing those tasks… it's no big hoorah speech, its a really quiet process. But what you will find is that you become something else… nothing will stop you!

  9. We are the ones that have knowledgebof muktiple but not one specialty… Theres a phrase or name for that….what was it

  10. Great advice. Especially on the “ meeting the need for newness” as an ENFP that is very good advice for me

  11. I can relate to this video quite a bit, in that I am an artist, majoring in animation, and I expect instant and quick results in my work, and am super excited for the beginning of a project, but towards then end that excitement tapers off and sometime I don't end up finishing what I started.

  12. I'm a young ENFP. I'm interested in quite A LOT of things. When I was younger, I told myself that I wanted to be a teacher, lawyer, detective, policewoman, businesswoman, entrepreneur, actress, singer, soldier, and more careers that I'm not gonna type cuz I'm lazy and that I don't remember all the careers/jobs that I wanted before.

    And now, I'm taking up architecture which for years I was struggling bc I kept thinking if I actually wanted to continue because it was really hard, and it was getting boring. HAHHAHAHA. It took me about a year after entering college to realize that the problem was me, wanting to do some other things that I'm not sure either if I'm really passionate about it or just that I'm interested with them. Took me about another year to recover myself and my confidence, of course, still doubting whether I should stay or leave the course. Took me another year or two to do some trial and error with how to manage my ENFP-self and my time. And now, it's my fifth year in college, still doubting and occasionally gets sad, annoyed, and is still struggling at school but I have decided that no matter what, I'm gonna finish what I have started. Afterall, it's an achievement for me if I get to finish something. HAHHAAHHAHA

  13. I am an enfp and am very good at long term thinking and planning in some ways. I do like new and novel things and I like to start projects more than doing all the details involved in finishing them but I am able to stay in one job a long time and plan my long term finances well. That doesn’t mean I like my job, but I stay.

  14. I am an enfp and I’ve noticed that celebs that are called enfp are almost always people I don’t like such as as Robin Williams, Ellen, Will Smith… Their personalities irk me a lot. Hmmmmmmm

  15. Why I haven't listened to this 5 years ago!?
    Practicing patience and changing the perspective on time. Thank you for sharing, Dan!

  16. After listening to this video and reading more about ENFP characteristics, I almost feel completely misunderstood up to this point in my life. This was crazy for me to hear and it resonated very deeply with me. Thank you for sharing.

  17. i definitely resonate with this piece! personally, I'm in sales and the day to day actions are very repetitive. I definite;y want to see how I can better myself . in my position it is a very political workplace and definitely shows where if you are liked, you are moved up the ranks… I am an enfp but in the workplace, i am quiet due to this political insight. I'm trying to see what I can do as a person to make myself more known and express my individuality while simultaneously bringing everyone together. not sure if thats were even possible..

  18. I usually don’t comment on videos, but I just really want to thank you so much for these videos! Really. If it’s still available, i will have to buy ur book! And if I ever succeed, I mean WHEN I succeed, I will mention you ! Thank u so much for the help❤️

  19. Yes, I’m ENFP. I changed 4 colleges and didn’t get my degree yet. I had 2 highway car accidents. I’ve lived in 3 different countries. Dated maybe like 50 girls and maybe in each of them I though I was in love at the beginning. I have extreme skills but don’t know what to do in the future. 😀

  20. You know you are an ENFP when you think of doing something but do 10 different ones at the same time.

    And for not paying attention to the whole video

  21. I really can't thank you enough.
    But I'll try.
    I'm an Enfp with a istj as a mother and I'm 20 now heavy with depression and unstable hormones and basically a hot mess in eye of my family ( my parents-) .
    Now I'm starting to realize how things are NoT what they seem
    Wish me luck. @[email protected]
    And THANK YOu

  22. I suggest you to write or use visual aid to explain cuz i cant pay attention with just talking. Hahahaa im enfp anyway

  23. Woah! As an ENFP this video brought a new level of awareness to my own bad habits! I thought I was an “evolved ENFP;” but through your examples I was able to see how I sought newness elsewhere, while sabotaging other parts of my life while doing so. Thank you!

  24. I am an ENFP and didn’t even know until a couple days ago lol And my biggest struggle has always been procrastination and not knowing where to go! When I had a goal in mind it was usually very hard to achieve (lol) and felt if it’s not achievable in a short amount of time or will be exactly what I have envisioned, it won’t be worthy to go for! Such a dumb attitude! I’ve heard so many times in my life that I have talent and potential but really never knew what way to go 😫 Now im starting all over again in a new country, new continent!

  25. Wow – I wish I'd heard this fantastic advice sooner, especially the attitude adjustment of going in with the expectation that success/results WILL be HARD to attain. I just realised how often I would try to talk myself in to doing things/getting things done by telling myself it can't be that hard, trying to perceive the long and hard work as manageable by telling myself it will be easy or quicker than I think, or subconsciously expecting myself to excel somehow first time around. I've been preparing myself to fail! Actually, thinking back, some of my best work has happened when I've submitted to the possibility of failing or under-performing, rather than having unrealistic expectations.

  26. As an ENFP, i multi-task between everything. Currently juggling between a full time job, tutoring, online business, part-time degree, and learning a 4th language on weekend. I tried to slow down, but I get easily bored & I need a lot of stimulation right from when I wake up til I go to bed.

  27. What you've said are all so true! It was difficult for me to even finish this video in one attempt ahaha.
    As a student, I have spent so many years trying to decide on my career direction. I switched directions and I feared committing to one thing. I am so very aware that I need to just stick to one thing, but it has been so difficult for me. Yeah I had some health issues that made my future quite unpredictable but I still look back and think that I could have just committed to one path as an experiment, and I would not have lost anything. I had a wake-up call last year as my graduation is approaching, and I've been trying everyday to just focus on one thing at a time!

  28. I have to comment. Hello, my people!

    Went to a friends church last week and a guy said to me..have you done the myers briggs test..i think you're an ENFP..I was like what??he was like,you're extroverted..I said, I think I'm an introvert etc.. Anyhoo, I did the test and have been watching some videos and it is really really nice to know there are other people out there who are like me-hahaha

    I actually feel this is very of God..because for a while I've been stuggling with knowing who I am.. Also, I believe we can change who we are..and work on things we need to work on.. eg.become less turbulant and more assertive..but it's so nice to know..I feel I can breathe a bit and accept myself..becuase this is, who I am and who I've been created to be…..

    And I was LOLLLLing at people saying about are you watching this at a faster speed.. with it turned up to 1.5x oh man, truth..

    Anyways, I'm gonna keep lookin into this..this is really, really helpful stuff and is setting my mind free..

    Right I'll get back to the video now..

  29. This is so true. I can’t stick to a job for more than a year and I don’t even think of dating because I think I’ll just get bored in a month

  30. Great video Dan. I have been following you for a while and watched multiple videos. Super inspiring and I’d love to connect with you individually! I am a strong ENFP and Would LOVE to connect! appreciate it! Check out my LinkedIn: /wlukexu

  31. Thank you so much. I feel so seen. 😂 I'm going to work on my perception of time!
    Also these comments are hilarious. I thought I was the only one wanting it to go faster only to rewind later.

  32. I’m an ENFP majoring in psychology. I definitely resonate with these points. I’m completing an accelerated program which allow me to graduate with my bachelors and masters at once. From all of the personality tests I’ve taken as well as my personal conviction, I believe counseling and Entreprenuership are for me. However, I’m struggling with issues of routine and mundane jobs while trying to complete my degree such as receptionist or cashier. I’m tired of being in school and am trying to accelerate graduation even more. I know that it’s only temporary but I want to do work that I’m passionate about not just good at.! Can you make another video about finding novelty and variation during times like these?

  33. Brother – this was spot on hahaha. I first saw your video about our perks where you mentioned this video, but I was actually looking to hear someone tell me how I can strengthen my weaknesses. This is spot on. Thank you🙏🏼

    My big reminders and takeaways:
    1) Instead of subtly changing directions. Learn To Finish.
    2) Patience. Commit to something and stick to it (Slow is Smooth, Smooth is Fast)
    3) Meet need for Excitement in a proactive way on the side, so I can stay steady in my business.

  34. Gee, the change of direction is one of my big problems, my team gets so frustrated with me, I have one goal I want my team to achieve, bit I make so many changes that it takes longer to reach the end point. When employing people I pre-warn them that I change my mind allot and urge them to correct me when I'm doing so too often 🙂 oh by the way, great video!!

  35. I’m such an ENFP, I was reading the comments when he said “come on focus” to the camera and I thought he was talking to me and telling me to stop getting distracted. I got so scared 😂

  36. I was somewhat frustrated about myself and has been asking myself why I'm like this, now things start to make sense. I laugh every time words hit the mark. 🙂

  37. You know you’re an ENFP when you have the video playing so you can entertain yourself while you are doing chores you put off a long time (and then stopping the chores half way through)

  38. How do you know you're moving towards something substantial? The main reason I switch streams of effort is because I'm constantly doubting if I'm going the right way

  39. Damn! I just realised I stopped the video to look after another plan and now I couldn't resist looking at the comments where you all did similar things 😅
    Good to see y'all, family!

  40. great tips Dan i really enjoyed it …..I was initially told i was a ENFP and recently told I am now a INFP ….but your descriptions really ring true for me……although as i have aged i do need more down and alone time…..what do you think ?

  41. hey man i love your youtube contents about ENFP i had struggle with my identity and thanks for clearing things out for me. 🙂
    Stay awesome man thanks for sharing

  42. You’re rocking my ENFP world with your truth Dan. Your channel came to me at exactly the right time 🙌🌟 Thank you 💫

  43. Wow! I seldom comment, but you have hit the nail on the head with me. How bizarre, it's as if you were speaking directly to me. Seeing all of the comments, it makes me feel so much relief to know that I'm not the only one that is this way. I feel understood.

  44. Is there a link to ENFP and ADD?

    I think most creative people have ADD. We’ve just learned to tie a rope around it and waterski behind it.

  45. thank you so much! It helped me understand that focus is necessary lol…I currently have 6 books on my nightstand which I all start and then rediscover three weeks later and I have to get back into reading them all the time. ahaa also I am currently deciding on where to study abroad next year. I am French btw

  46. Lol, listening to this whole scrolling through the comments… noticing comments saying that's an ENFP thing to do… as if I needed more confirmation. Lol

  47. Hi im verry happy to hear your advices im an ENFP too ans i share ur point of view concerning the need of changement, i can say that We have to take time to remember why this dream is a lot important for us
    Thanks for your video, keep going
    (Sorry for my english lol)

  48. Omg! That's what exactly I am thinking. Since I don't have a choice but to stick to my business, I started writing down things that I wanted to try with my friends or boyfriend. Also, aside from my business, I have this online job so I don't get bored easily.

  49. Whenever I watch your videos, I realize that there's at least someone who understands my behaviour and makes me feel confident in my self.

  50. Oh my gosh this is speaking right to my soul!! For the last 5-6 years, I believed I was INFP (apparently a common misconception) but after my latest 2 week youtube spree, there is NO doubt left, I am 100% ENFP. I struggle with ALL of these things (funny to feel so excited about relating to a bunch of negative traits/bad habits, ha!) But it makes so much sense and explains so much!! The last time I felt this amped over a puzzle piece of self discovery was getting an ADHD diagnosis at 35 years old… I especially love this channel because I also own my own creative business, and I worked SO hard to make it successful – harder than I have EVER worked on one thing in my life, doing something I am naturally talented at but also LOVE doing, and I am reeeeaaallly struggling with the burn-out & self sabotage gigs at the moment, which stinks because my business has become successful enough to support my little 3 person family, AND I get to work from a home studio as a single mom of 2 boys – it's not just my ass on the line, so I can't just throw in the towel as I would have in years past… I don't want to lose all my progress and momentum, and have been frantically searching for help/advice on how to get my proverbial sh*t back together! This channel is a freaking gold mine and has so far given me the greatest insight & actionable steps to take that I actually find possible/reasonable – just knowing what personal needs to focus on makes all the difference, plus the realization of how much I do tamper with my business "strategy" without allowing the proper amount of time to pass before feeling discouraged & trying something new. Hiring a "tax man" for the mind numbing paper-worky stuff was my 1st step – a total win. Now I just need to figure out how I can spend more time making my shiny things (the part that I love – which happens to be making actual shiny things, I am a jewelry designer/artist and work with sparkly gemstones) and less time feeling frazzled over pricing equations, keeping inventory, tracking sales data (blurg)… It's been awhile since I felt so strongly that I am on the right path, so HOORAY! (and also – thank you for the awesome videos!)

  51. My problem is that I don’t even know what the fuck I want to do. I feel that I’m currently in a stagnant position of which I don’t know what way is forward. I have many interests and I do a lot of “dabbling”. Like many other enfps ive seen on YouTube I’m not really to sure of who I am or who I need or want to be. So I’m open to suggestions I guess🤷‍♂️

  52. This one really resonated with me Dan! "ENFPs are often changing directions and that really affects their focus and ability to achieve results." and "ENFP typically has a sense of urgency, a desire to make things happen quickly and if they don't meet that expectation, the ENFP gets disappointed, quits or changes direction ". My top takeaways, 1. realize my tendencies (impatient, overly optimistic for such a short timeframe, etc.) 2. Develop the longer range focus on time frames for achieving my goals 3. I'm attracted to novelty channel that proactively in sports or hobbies not my career or business.

  53. ENFP here: watching this video, see the poster in the background: “is that a spy kids poster? No. There’s no title” googles spy kids poster nope. Writes this comment* “oh shit I just missed half the video.” rewinds to start over, will probably get distracted again

  54. So true! All of it! I wish I could have heard this a long time ago. My restlessness has a way of undoing my goals.
