I have no goal in life, no direction, i dont know how to enjoy life and i failed at life at 24. My mother only taught me to work and school and i always listened but it left me with no social life.

It's a common thing, everybody in the life reach to this point, it makes you think a lot and almost panic.
We live to learn, we all did mistakes we learned from, that's progress. You like things to happen in your life, but nothing happens. Try to find your interests, be ambitious, there is something you want to do, no one can help you but your self, nothing is easy, that's why it's so sweet when you get it. I have been in your situation like yours, i was a living dead person, doing things that had no meaning over and over and over again. Then came few dark months, the darkest i ever been through and thought this is like war, there is a war in my head, id this really how life is? or is it just me? Started reading books just randomly, then one day i came a cross a book ''find your motivation'' it wasn't a title but it made me curious to pick it, this book gave my some ideas how to be motivated and how to be ambitious in things i want. Try to find a way to motivate your self to find a goal in your life, nothing comes easy remember that. Sorry i wrote this much hope you get something useful.

I think we each have to create our own meaning in life. My values give me meaning in my life. For example, I'm Catholic and part of that is doing what we call "good works" - pursuing ideas that will help others. This for me means working at a non-profit. I have a friend who is Buddhist. The thing that's most important to them is to have new experiences and also to live in the present-in that very moment, so they have a job that takes them to new places. What things do you value most? That might help you decide what you want to do.
Also on the not having a social life aspect: join some clubs! Meetup (dot) com is a great place to join people with similar hobbies as you. It takes a lot of work to make friends, for sure, but it can be done. My advice is to focus on the people, not so much the activities. Try new things even when you don't know if you'll like it, if there's potential to make friends from that situation. If you're a hard worker in your career, you can apply that hard work to pursuing friends. Good luck!0
