Want A Life Makeover? Listen To Your Inner Calling, NOW!
Passion is one of the most powerful elements in life, which fuels us even during tough times and guides when all seems dark and dreary. But if we lose our passion for life, it can take a toll on our health and life and create negative feelings and destroy us completely from within. Lack of passion can be attributed to several causes, like a bad relationship, a boring or unsuitable job profile, excessive responsibilities and pressure and others. Finding your true calling can help you rise above the daily problems of life and fill your life with energy and happiness. Follow these steps to help you discover your true calling.
Try different career paths: If you are unsure about your career path and do not know which way to go, try different ways! Explore your creative side and become a writer, artist, graphic designer, chef or whatever you please, or look up investment banking and financial analysis and see if it suits you better. If your organisation has a system of job rotation or allows people to work in multiple roles, convey your interests to the management and who knows what doors you unlock!
Make your money work for you, not vice versa: As harsh as it may sound, considering your income as the only parameter for success and happiness can be the worst thing you can do for yourself. Keep considerations of money and remuneration aside and do what you love best. When you are happy with you do, you will do it well and riches and success will automatically follow.
Be open to new ideas: Never say no to anything, be it taking up a challenging assignment or a change of job profile. If you feel bored in your current job and find no scope for improvement in your situation, consider other options and see what you can do for yourself, even if it means starting a new business venture or taking up a freelance job. Opportunities abound, but it is the way you use them that determines your growth in life.
Shed your inhibitions: Fear and apprehension of what the society or your family and friends say about your constant change of jobs or starting a new venture may keep you from discovering your true calling. So keep you fears and hesitation aside and do what your heart tells you, since it knows what’s best for you. And after all, even your family and friends only want you to be happy and successful, so go ahead and follow your heart!
Work hard towards perfection: Sometimes you may actually love your job but only the lack of strong skill sets and abilities may bog you down constantly. If so, it is no much cause for worry, since paying attention towards perfecting your abilities and working hard to overcome flaws and errors in your work can solve the issue. You may never know your true passion unless you test your abilities and hone your skills to perfection. It is then that you can take a complete view of the bigger picture and decide whether you love or hate your job. The process may take time, but a little patience can go a long way in giving you happiness and job satisfaction.
