The biggest mistake people make is not making a living doing what they really love.
Wow. That seems obvious, but honestly it is not. For some of us, figuring out what we love becomes a process, because we’ve done what we thought we ought and should be doing. Possibly, we find ourselves in a habit of doing what we’ve always done without being as aware as we’d like of what we really enjoy.
For others of us, as we evolve, mature and have profound life experiences our interests shift. We may find that we simply aren’t as connected or engaged with how we spend the majority of our time. What about you? What calls to you?
In the sad minority are those who are wildly happy doing on a daily basis work they love. Why is that and what can be done to profoundly change this? In a beautifully written book by author, speaker and coach, Kevin Hall entitled Aspire, living our Namaste or ‘greatness within’ becomes the inspiration for what we do. In other words, learning to live and to serve from our core, our profoundly gifted center positions us then to contribute fully. From Aspire, “‘Nature’ comes from the Latin ‘natura’, which means to be born or to give birth. Nature is the gifts you were born with, it is your genius.”
It is my belief that each of us has a natural gift to share, a personal genius we’ve been offered a chance to gift to the people in our lives. What is yours? Do you know your true calling? If you don’t know, or are unsure, I hope you’ll come back often and reflect on my musings, since I am pretty sure that my true calling is to help some of you discover yours. Namaste.
