Your calling is out there!
Take your happiness to another level and use these step to find your calling and live up to your true potential today!
Want to be happier?
One area to focus on is your career.
They say that if you truly enjoy what you do, then you will never work a day in your life.
Wouldn’t that be a great existence?
The only problem is, that many of us don’t know what that job is that would make us happy and we have trouble finding what our ‘calling’ is.
This is a problem because without knowing who we really are, we’ll never reach that point where everything comes together.
And we feel like we have a strong mission statement and focus in life.
Find what you love and you will emit confidence, charisma, charm, and passion.
But how on Earth do you go about finding that thing?
Compare Things You Love
One good place to start is by looking at some of the things that you love doing and that inspire you.
What are your favorite hobbies? What is the happiest you’ve ever been at work?
What was your favorite job role so far? Who are your idols?
What did you want to be when you were younger?
What are you great at?
Write all these things down and then make some kind of Venn diagram.
What you’re going to try and do now is see where those things overlap and interject.
What does your childhood hero have in common with your happiest day at work?
What are the common themes?
Try Lots of Things
If you write all these ideas down and still have no idea what you want to do, then you just need to throw more things at the wall and see what sticks.
In other words, the more experiences you have, the better your chances of finding the job role that will make you truly happy.
Think in the Now
Another tip is to think in the now.
Stop worrying about which job will provide you with the best future or which job has the most career opportunities.
Instead ask yourself: what would you love to be doing right now?
You can also try a few thought experiments to try and uncover the things that truly matter to you.
For instance, ask: if you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
Or how about imagining what your eulogy would sound like at your own funeral.
What would you want people to say about you?
And finally, keep trying! As you get older you will get more and more of an idea as to who you are, what makes you happy and where you thrive best.
Look at the rest as a journey to that destination.
