What is Your Calling?
“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.”- Oprah Winfrey
Find what you love and offer it to others in the form of service. This is so key! When we pursue our passions for self interest only, it leads to so much more disappointment and failure. Always framing our pursuits in the context of how we serve others changes everything and brings #reallifebalance. Recently, I heard an amazing interview that recommended instead of answering the common question of “What do you do?”, to answer it in context of how you help others. For me, instead of saying, “I have an online school that creates courses in personal growth topics” (which is how I have been answering that question!), I now say “I help others find real life balance”. It reminds me not only what I really do, but why. And it shuffles my expectations into the proper perspective, bringing #reallifebalance.
