Merriam-Webster defines a “calling” as: “…a strong inner impulse toward a particular course of action especially when accompanied by conviction of divine influence.”
But how do you find your calling?
Many will say you don’t “find” your calling, you have to fight for it.
During our June Certification we had this discussion after one of the participants of our training program proclaimed that it was her calling to be an etiquette teacher and educate others about respect and manners.
She had been resisting and putting off attending ASP, but she knew immediately once she walked through the doors that she was doing the right thing.
This statement opened up the conversation about finding our calling in life which prompted this article.
Things you should Stop doing:
According to Dave Isay, winner of the 2015 TED Prize, “People who’ve found their calling have a fire about them. They are the people who are dying to get up in the morning and go do their work.”
If pursued with dedication your calling will enrich your life, your family’s life, and the lives of those around you.
If you are searching, you are on the right path.
When you find your calling you will know it.
Keep moving forward.
And remember you can’t fulfill your dreams when you are stuck in your comfort zone.
