Finding your true calling
Are you finding fulfilment in your everyday life? Have you accomplished or found happiness in your career? Do you feel something is missing in your life but you’re not sure how to satisfy or relinquish that void? When you’re at a point in your life and have realized you’re not getting any enjoyment or satisfaction from your career or job anymore, it might be time to redefine what fits your personality.
There comes a point in time, in many peoples lives, (like a light bulb moment) – when they suddenly realize they want a change or they feel they need to do something that has meaning and to find their passion but they’re not quite sure what that is.
Self satisfaction and pleasure from what you engage in daily, whether it is your job or your career, will help you to create success in your life. Whether it is a job interview you must prepare for, or a major career change in your life that you’ve been pondering on for some time, exploring and reflecting on your values will help you to analyze what is really important to determine the direction you want to take.
Characterising your true identity, will determine the path you will take. More importantly, when you focus on developing an understanding of yourself, you’ll develop more self awareness and grow into your true self. It can take a bit of work to acknowledge and work through certain parts of your personality. It takes some questioning and soul searching to be completely honest in every facet of your being.
Without this knowledge, finding complete satisfaction and gratification in your career or field of employment, may hinder your true potential. If you are about to enter the workforce for the first time or you’re deciding on a career but have yet to find out what you really want to do, it may be helpful to get a note pad or a note book and pen and be ready to begin asking yourself some questions, or do a search to find some questions that will help you to work on your values and beliefs.
It is important to be in the present moment when you start out. Our emotions are a major factor to take into consideration when we’re in the decision making process. If you have a high sense of emotional awareness, you’re more likely to have more discipline over the emotions you feel and you will have a good understanding of the inner processes associated with these feelings.
It is very helpful for introspection to ask as many questions about yourself as possible. Some questions might be difficult to answer but the process will get you thinking and will help you to define your values and beliefs, which will in effect help you to find your passion.
These series of questions as an example, should help promote indepth self reflection to help you get closer to finding your inner self:
- How would you describe yourself?
- What types of things do you value?
- What are your strengths?
- If someone close to you were describe your characteristics, what do you think they would say about you?
- What makes you happy?
- What is your strongest point?
- What have been the most important influences in your life?
- How have they impacted your life up to this point?
- If a miracle happened overnight and your life was exactly how you wanted it when you woke up, how different would your life be?
- What inspires you?
- What are your beliefs?
- How are you at standing up for yourself?
- What could another person learn from you?
This is a beginning to delving into finding your true identity. Confidence and the ability to work on your personal characteristics can certainly help you to know what your abilities are and to work on finding your inner beauty.
