Advertisements

Dear Reader: 

We all have unique talents and passions that make us who we are. When we use these talents and passions to their fullest potential, we live authentically in our calling. But what does it mean to live authentically in your calling? And how can you find your life’s purpose? These are questions that we often ponder but seldom find satisfactory answers to. In truth, there is no one simple answer that will fit everyone. However, there are some things that you can do to help you understand and live into your authentic calling.

What Does It Mean To Live Authentically In Your Calling?

You are true to yourself and your talents when you live authentically in your calling. You are pursuing your passions and using your talents to their fullest potential. When you live authentically, you’ll feel a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction because you’ll be doing what you’re meant to do. What does it mean to live authentically in your calling? It means being honest about who you are and what you want to do with your life. It means having the courage to pursue your dreams and the strength to overcome obstacles. It means living each day with purpose and meaning. When you live authentically in your calling, you’ll be living a life that is truly yours. So, what does it mean to live authentically in your calling? Only you can answer that question. But whatever your answer may be, remember that living authentically is a journey worth taking. 

As you know by now, I think my career is part of my calling but that may not be true for everyone. Sometimes your calling can be separate from what you do for work. 

How to figure out your life’s purpose:

The first step is to spend time in contemplation and introspection. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. What are your values? What do you care about? What makes you come alive? When you are clear about these things, it will be easier to start discerning your life’s purpose. However, there are a few things you can do to start finding your life’s purpose:

Examine Your Talents And Passions. 

Think about what you’re good at and what you love to do. What are your strengths? What energizes and excites you? These are good places to start when it comes to finding your life’s purpose. 

Consider The Things That Bring You Joy. 

Another great way to start finding your life’s purpose is to think about the things that bring you joy. What are the activities or experiences that make you happy? When you’re doing something you love, it should bring you joy. If it doesn’t, then it might not be something you’re meant to do. 

Talk To People Who Know You Well. 

If you’re having trouble finding your life’s purpose, talking to people who know you well can be helpful. Ask them what they think your strengths are and what they think you should pursue professionally. Other people often see our talents and passions more clearly than we can see them ourselves! 

How to live out your life’s purpose

How you live out your life’s purpose is ultimately up to you. But once you understand what that purpose might be, there are some general principles you can follow to start living it out. First and foremost, don’t be afraid to take risks. Your life’s purpose is unlikely to be something that comes without effort or challenge. So don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and seize opportunities as they come your way. Second, stay true to yourself. Getting caught up in what other people think you should be doing with your life can be easy. But at the end of the day, you are the only one who knows what is best for you. Trust your gut and follow your heart. Third, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Pursuing your life’s purpose is not a solo journey. Surround yourself with people who support and believe in you and will help you along the way. And finally, enjoy the journey! It might not always be easy, but remember that living out your life’s purpose is an incredible privilege. Embrace the challenges and relish in the rewards. Pursue your purpose with passion and joy, and let it lead you to a truly fulfilling life.

Living out your life’s purpose is not always easy, but it is a journey worth taking. You can create a truly fulfilling life by following your heart, staying true to yourself, and embracing the challenges along the way. So, what does it mean to live authentically in your calling? Only you can answer that question. But whatever your answer may be, remember that living authentically is a journey worth taking.

Lastly, keep your mouth shut. When discovering who you are and what you are called to, don’t ask for second, third, or fourth opinions. This is between you and God. When you ask google, your mom, your aunt and your second cousin, they can only tell you what they want for you… not what God wants for you. Turn inward and listen to God, not google.
