Most people miss this one. This fundamental issue that troubles us, haunts us, pulls our hair by the stars. It’s our calling. Most people focus on making a living and not on creating a life.

Most people fall into 3 groups:

  • You do a job
  • You build a career
  • You fulfil your calling

Author Frederick Buechner said that your purpose is at “that place where your deep gladness meets the world’s deep need.” When you find your calling- when you find what is calling you, it will result in you merging your skills, talents, character traits and experiences. It will make use of your experience, you gifts, and the lessons you’ve learned. It will be represented by a deep desire to create, lead, inspire and make a difference. Take a look at this table by Dr John C Maxwell:

CareerCalling
Mainly about youMainly about others
Something you chooseSomething chosen for you
Separated from your best lifeIntegrated into your entire life
You can take it or leave itNever leaves you
Something you can doSomething you must do
Measured by successMeasured by significance

When you find your calling – your why -you find the reason why you exist, your purpose for living. You are excited everyday for the rest of your life. People know you for YOUR ENERGY and EXCITEMENT for life.

  • When you find your why – you find YOUR WAY.
  • When you find your why you find YOUR WILL.
  • When you find your why you find YOUR WINGS.
