It’s Never Too Late to Find Your Calling
A Handbook to Help You
Find Your Passion – and Get a Life
Have You Found Your Real Calling?
Yeah. Real Calling.
Your Real Calling.
If you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about, take a couple seconds to complete this quick quiz:
- Are you doing EXACTLY the kind of work that makes you want to leap out of bed each morning excited to begin a new day?
- Does your work satisfy a need deep within to express yourself, your talents, your values, your unique and precious gifts?
- Does your work allow for a balanced life – one that leaves time for family and friends, for exercise or hobbies, for you?
- Are you doing what you love and loving what you do?
If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, congratulations! There’s a good chance that you have achieved what the Buddhist’s call “Right Livelihood.”
If you haven’t yet found the work you were meant to do, keep reading. You’re about to Find Your Calling – and when you find that calling that is uniquely yours, your life will be transformed. Guaranteed.
“The way to find out about your happiness,” said renowned mythology scholar Joseph Campbell, “is to keep your mind on those moments when you feel most happy, when you are really happy – not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy.”
Read that paragraph again. It’s awesome.
Now ask yourself how you feel each day as you get ready for work. It probably sounds something like this.
Your alarm clock buzzes you awake. You drag yourself out of bed, dreading another day at a job that’s high on stress and short on satisfaction.
I guess what I’m asking you is this:
Are You Truly Happy Working in a Career That’s Fulfilling and Enjoyable?
Because when you really love your work you greet the day like this:
You don’t need an alarm clock because you can’t wait to get out of bed and dive into another workday where your work feels more like play.
Maybe you think it’s too late. Maybe you believe that you’ve somehow missed your Calling and that… well… you’re not getting any younger.
Nonsense. The 19th century writer George Eliot got it right when she said, “You’re never too old to be what you might have been.”
Beverly Goodman Park from Northampton, Massachusetts is a perfect example of what I’m talking about:
Beverly was close to 60 when her marriage ended. At an age when most people are contemplating retirement, Beverly decided to pursue a long-held dream of becoming an attorney. A lot of people told her she was too old. Undaunted, Beverly went to law school while working full-time, passed the bar exam, and at 61, landed a job at a law firm, explaining, “I thought this age stuff was baloney.”
So, as you see, just because you’re all grown up, it doesn’t mean you can’t find your own life mission and live it.
But this leads me to my next question…
How Do You Find Work That Will Feed Your Soul?
When you discover your Calling, you may find your life taking you in unexpected directions.
So here’s your million-dollar question:
Do you believe you were put on this earth to sit in commuter traffic, to suffer through the performance evaluations and reorganizations, to have to answer to a boss that is well… you know….
Were you really created to spend your life having the Sunday night blues?
Or Do You Believe, As I Do, That You Were Put Here to Follow a Calling That Is Uniquely Yours?
If the idea of loving what you do appeals to you, the way I see it… here are your options: You can keep plodding along week after week hoping that inspiration will somehow, someway suddenly strike and – in a flash – your calling will be revealed.
Or, you can make a promise to yourself right here, right now to take the first bold step on behalf of your dreams.
