7 SIGNS YOU FOUND YOUR CALLING – Jeff Goins. I love Jeff Goins… if you do not know who he is, look him up- writer, blogger…check him out!
WHICH WAY ARE YOU GOING TO GO?
1. IT’S FAMILIAR-
A calling comes not just by looking forward to what you will not do but also at looking back at what you have done. I think when you do this, you have to ask yourself: what Do I Like and what do I do well?
2. IT’S SOMETHING OTHER PEOPLE SEE IN YOU.
Sometimes, our vocations are most obvious to those who know you the BEST. If you do not know, ask your friends… the ones that boost you up.
3. IT’S CHALLENGING.
I must be difficult enough that not anyone can do it. If you say to yourself, I am not going to do what it take to do____, then it is not a challenge to you. Pick another challenge.
4. IT REQUIRES FAITH.
It cannot be something too obvious that you can easily explain it. It must be mysterious. Here in lies the food that motivates you and makes you more interesting and intriguing.
5. IT TAKES TIME.
You have to fail your way in the right direction before you find it. Perservence and looking just beyond when you want to give up. That is when, if you stick to what sings to your heart come into play. Nothing is by chance.
6. IT’S MORE THAN JUST ONE THING.
And, it integrates well with the rest of your life, not competing with but complimenting your top priorities. Ever go against the flow… how did it work out? It was a struggle. When you are aligned with your purpose, you are unstoppable.
7. IT’S BIGGER THAN YOU.
The task must be so large that without a team of people, you cannot complete it on your own. Bigger than you also means, something for the good of all humanity, so many benefits. That away, you get the support you need and help along the way just for the asking.
When you have Purpose with Intention and Focus… you will be unstoppable. Surround yourself with like-minded people, people who inspire you to do your best and love you. First, love yourself.:-)
