Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh  

You should consult with people in different professions and get an understanding of their fields and its demand.  Then, analyze which of those fields are interesting to you and you believe you could earn a halāl income from it.  After you are inclined towards one particular field, you should make istikhārah and seek guidance from Allāh Ta’ālā.

There is nothing “going on” with you as many people face confusion and indecision in such matters.  InshāAllāh, with mashwarah (consultation), istikhārah, and du’ās, Allāh Ta’ālā will grant barakah in your decision.

And Allah knows best

Wassalaamu `alaykum
