Follow your bliss - do what you really love, otherwise what’s the point?

If the aspiration is to follow your bliss, the inference of course is that you actually know what ‘your bliss’ is. So let’s imagine that you do have an idea about what you’d really like to do with your life, and that it’s not what you’re doing now.
