3 Ways to Discover Your Calling
Finding the perfect job may sometimes require a little more than simply polishing up your resume and putting in applications. To truly find a job that fits you, you need to find your particular calling. That may sound a little intangible, but there are some solid ways you can accomplish this. Keep reading to learn more.
When you are always "grinding" and rushing from one task to the next, your mind doesn't have the time to really reflect on what you should be doing. Staying busy doesn't necessarily mean you are accomplishing what needs to be accomplished. To really get in touch and discover your calling, you may need to slow down. Schedule for yourself an hour or so a day to reflect on who you want to be and what you want to accomplish. People rarely give themselves time these days for reflection. As a result, they live lives that are often disconnected from what they really want to achieve. Take this time for reflection each day for a few weeks. Journal what you discover. Ask yourself, "What do I really want to be doing with my life?"
Take A Trip Down Memory Lane
When we are young, we think we can become anything. What did you dream of doing with your life as a child? What about when you were in high school or college? We are often very idealistic as young people. Over time, we lose some of that idealism and think we must simply settle for whatever we can get.
Think back on those dreams from your younger years. Did you fulfill them? What could you be doing now that might help you become the person you longed to be back then? What career path did you give up on so that you could settle for something else?
