Monday Morning Wake Up Call:
Your Motivation, Inspiration, & Direction for the Week Ahead
What is Your True Calling?
While there are many people who have always known what they were going to do and what they were destined to do, the majority of people spend most of their life looking for that one thing that they are supposed to do. Do yourself a favor and let yourself off the hook if you haven’t figured out that one “big thing”. Instead, start feeling good about the fact that you’ll probably fulfill several callings throughout your life. If you think about it, it makes more sense that we evolve with age, right? When I think about who I was in my twenties, compared to who I am today, I can’t imagine my life without all those stages of growth and development. I evolved into who I am and that is who I am supposed to be. I responded to what resonated with me at each bend in the road and hit a few roadblocks, but they always provided a few and rewarding path. Follow what feels good in the moment. Follow your intuition and it will lead you through a most excellent life!
Something to Think About:
Perhaps it’s not about discovering that “one thing” for everyone but knowing when to move on to another thing when you are no longer feeling challenged, interested or engaged. I think we all know when we are on the right path, but what happens when that path suddenly turns into a fork in the road?
If you know someone who is feeling bored with their life, help them to find a new path. Perhaps take a new agent under your wing and share some valuable insights. When we help others, we create a lift in our own lives and often spark a connection to our calling.
