Career Pathway #108: What Is Your Mission?

There comes a point in many lives when the question of “vocation” pops up. This is when each person asks, “What work am I meant to do on earth?” And, often the answer is not the job we are now performing. In fact, it may be a far cry from the career we have built.

The answer to that meaningful question lies in our passions, strengths, and personal mission. Sometimes, that answer may come easily, however, often it does not. Finding it may require great introspection, discernment, time, and a commitment to the process.

Clues to identifying vocation for yourself may live in the activities which bring you joy, in the assignments/tasks you get excited about, in the value and support you bring to others’ lives, or in the message you are compelled to share with the world.

If you are at a point in your life where you are seeking your vocation, find some time for introspection, consideration, and planning. Your answer lies in your values and true essence. And undoubtedly, it will come to you when you are in a mindset of acceptance and openness. Give yourself some quiet time and listen to your guidance–your answer is there.

Coaching Inquiries: What work are you compelled to do in this world? What specific gifts do you want to share with others? Is there a voice calling to you in your quiet moments? Where is it leading you?

Coaching Opportunities: If you want to pursue this matter further, with some free vocation coaching, please email me. Appointments are on a first come-first served basis, and are available on Wednesday and Thursday, June 18 and 19, on the hour beginning at 9:00 am Eastern until 4:00 PM each day.

I would also like to hear from you regarding the process of identifying your vocation. I’d like to know how you came to the knowing of what you were called to do, the path you took in getting there, the quality of your work satisfaction, and the gifts/personal strengths you are utilizing. All information will be kept confidential, so please email me with your stories.
