What calling gets you out of bed in the morning full of excitement?
A man that I know (who is wise beyond his years) once told me that the reason that inspires you to jump up out of bed in the morning with excitement requires the same intensity whether or not you are in love with what you do or not. So you might as well be moved to do what you love. Something to ponder for sure.
How many of us hear that alarm ring and just pull the covers over our head with a strong dreadful feeling about the day ahead? Or maybe we muster up enough energy to get up- do what we need to- get in the car and rush our way to our workplace or school of study silently and completely disliking what we are doing; just to repeat it day in and day out….Meanwhile your true calling seems like a big pipe dream getting further and further away from your vision.
Does any of this sound familiar?
Of course there are many times in our lives that we must do things that are less inspiring out of obligation and responsibilities. But the way I have learned to understand ‘A Calling’ is much more than a job that you have or the study program you are enrolled in… It’s about finding your true passion and purpose in life. The thing that motivates you to help people; to inspire people; to provide solutions; or to provide hope and comfort to someone else.
A calling or a mission or vision gives you a feeling of excitement or sparkle from deep within that pulls you towards your life’s purpose without you having to push or fight against the flow.
We can tend to get lost in the hustle and bustle of it all and not hear that deep roar from within that might be telling us to find the sparkle from within and share it with the world in everything you do to bring more authenticity, truth and joy to others.
Learning how to do this can shift you; a loved one or an entire group of people whom you can inspire, support and motivate to listen to their Calling too…
