What's Calling You?
It’s the excitement you feel when you listen to a solo violinist or read a book by your favorite author, inspiring you to get up and follow in their footsteps. It’s why you never miss a yoga class and enjoy making hand-made gifts for your loved ones. It’s something that makes your heart sing and your toes tap, and most importantly, doing it fulfills you. It’s where you belong and maybe even what makes you unique. This is what’s known as a “calling” and it’s what wants to happen in your life.
If you’re living like a square peg in a round hole—doing data entry when you’d rather be dancing, selling real estate when you’d rather be eco-farming—heed your calling! Start by accepting your present work and consciously acknowledge it’s time to move on. Next, write down exactly what is calling you. Then get into action: take a class, subscribe to a trade magazine, join a club or mentor with an expert. As you begin to embody and nurture your calling, it will surely manifest—so go for it!
