Begin by writing down your strengths and needs, as you perceive them. Then interview people who know you well (and in different situations). Ask them what they think that you do noticeably well and what you noticeably do not do well. Write these down and see if patterns emerge that point towards or away from a particular type of career or service.
Ask a career/guidance counselor to recommend and administer career aptitude or interest tests. Research, with the help of a career counselor, careers that will be in demand in the future.
Ask: How would I love to fill my hours for the next ___ years? What senses do I like using the most? What do I like to think about? What am I committed to for myself/others? What resources are available?
If you are lacking a skill in a career, but feel passionate about it ... don't let that deter you. Many successful people have had to overcome a barrier in the pursuit of their passion. Persevere.
Hey friend, while making a decision on choosing the career, be very patient and analyze what you are best at. For this, discover what is your hobby or interest area and accordingly look for career options in that field. Good luck for your future.

For some people, having a career that creates wealth is much more important than having a job that builds individual enrichment.

The more interested and skilled you are at work, the more pleasant your career will be.

I agree with all of the answers, but also once you have done that you should really look for someone that can mentor you on the career you have chosen. When I wanted to be a tax collector I went to the IRS office and I asked to talk to someone that works in the Auditing department. I sat with her for a little while, I asked her a lot of questions (you should be prepare with a list of questions that you want to ask) and funny enough we became friends. Eventually she started mentoring me on how to become a tax collector. It turn out that after a while that is not what I wanted to do. I was really happy that I found that out before I graduate from college. I couldn't believe how miserable I would have been if I were to stay in a job I don't like. Now I have a controller being my mentor. I love it so far.
