Everyone has a calling.  Something they are put on this planet to do.  Your mission, while here on Earth, is to figure out what that is, and DO IT.

How do you know what your calling is?  It feels fun, easy, exciting.  You have an aptitude for it, a passion for it, it makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning and keep doing it until your eyes close at night.  You have a ridiculously good memory for things relating to it and when you think about doing it, you get a nervous kind of thrill about it like, “I couldn’t really do that…….could I?”

Everybody knows what their calling is, they just might not KNOW they know.  So much of what I do while career coaching is getting people out of their own way so they can first, find their calling, and second, uncover what obstacles stand in their way.  The obstacles sound something like this:  “Who would pay me to do that?”  “Anybody could do that!”  “There are already plenty of good people already out there.”  “I don’t have the right degree/education/experience.”  “I might fail”  “What would my family think?” “Who would pick the kids up after school?”

Whether your mission is to make things beautiful, improve lives, care for animals, communicate effectively, create practical solutions, or help others enjoy life, you have an obligation to do it.  Having doubts is very normal but we can’t let them dictate our life’s choices.  If you were made to be a mom, an artist, an editor, a builder, a party planner, a dog trainer, it is time to do it.  The world needs you!

Imagine this for a minute….every person you give your money to, LOVES what they are doing.  Your waiter is fulfilling his dream by serving delicious food with amazing service.  Your child’s teacher knows she is changing lives and loves having an outlet for her creative ideas.  The gas station attendant is thrilled to be able to touch so many lives every day and help them enjoy the freedom to go where they want in life.  Your babysitter is so grateful that you trust her and allow her to share the joy your children exude.  Isn’t that the kind of world you want to live in?  Can you imagine every time you pay someone money, you are helping them fulfill their life’s purpose?  Disneyland would no longer be the Happiest Place on Earth, Earth would!

Who are YOU to get in the way of living your dreams?  You have gifts, you have talents, you have a calling, now DO it.  The world is counting on you.
