- Make a list of your abilities and interests, and then see how they match. You may be doing something you’re good at, but don’t enjoy. Instead, find something you enjoy and then learn what it takes to get good at it. Serena was fortunate that her vocational calling was right under her nose. For years she helped friends and colleagues improve their writing skills through informal coaching sessions. She realized thatrepparttar gift for teaching others how to transform ideas into prose wasn’t just a hobby. It was a vocational calling. Today, she runs Book Coach Press, which has launched 13 book titles (including my own “P is for Perfect: Your Perfect Vocational Day”). - Don’t be afraid to move toward your goals. Many people understandrepparttar 107128 need for change but are frozen in place. There’s fear that we may be jumping fromrepparttar 107129 frying pan intorepparttar 107130 fire. When Anita lost her engineering job, she avoided self-pity and instead graspedrepparttar 107131 possibilities of her new freedom. She began a journey of self-discovery that uncovered a long-undiagnosed illness, hypoglycemia and with it a new calling. She soon wrote a book on hypoglycemia. Now, she helps others understand and managerepparttar 107132 disease. Anita turned what could have been a series of unfortunate events into a new calling that has brought vocational passion to her life. Remember: No one will pull you aside at work, look you inrepparttar 107133 eye, and ask if you’re really happy with your career and your life. The power to understand what’s missing and do what’s necessary to find it is yours alone. Take responsibility for change, and change will happen.
