Life Fix 101: Career Choice or Life Calling?

Get New Perspectives: Indicators and Resources

For many people, life has been about pursuing a career path out of necessity, (choice), rather than following one that closely matches their skills, abilities and innate proclivities (calling). 

Many think that if they follow a presumed career path for a number of years that, that, in itself is considered to be their life’s profession. 

Is there a difference, you ask? Aren’t they the same?

No… No… No…

Careers are those paths that we “choose, decide or prefer” to follow, while a “calling” is simply the path one takes, as their very own “mission” in this life! It is that concrete assignment or task that demands that one fulfills! 

Your life, with its calling cannot be replaced nor repeated. Everyone’s calling is as unique as the specific opportunity to implement it! 

Many people are just not happy in the career path to which they have chosen! 

Lately, because of the condition of our economy,  (vast downsizings and lay-offs), things have gotten so hard and frustrating, especially for those nearing retirement, and for those younger workers that have, in the past, chosen to follow a job that simply pays the bills, rather than their life’s-calling. 

Consider this…no matter what you may be experiencing at this juncture in your life, this may be your best opportunity to reposition yourself!

Rather than seeing only what is before your physical eyes…experience something more! 

See things in new ways! Discover your “calling!” Find out what your mission, purpose, and life design is….

Many times because of necessity or family blueprints, people have chosen to get a job and continue in that path simply because, “it met their immediate need at the time. (needs like food, having substance, pay the bills, etc..)

Now after many years as a “career professional”, they find ourselves needing to be inspired and needing to find a new channel. 

For sure…at this time, there now necessitates a re-awakening of those innate qualities and abilities and finding what we all possess! 

There needs to be a re-firing of what has been deposited inside us, and of those qualities that have been left untapped for many, many years! 

Are you now ready to plan your future work around the life you really love? Start Now! Seek some assistance to secure your future! And that best place to find guidance and inspiration for the work you were created to do is!
