Monday Mojo – Map Your Calling

Did you ever have a “careers advisor” at school?

Back in the day, we might have been encouraged to do what we were good at, rather than what we enjoyed – they’re not always the same thing. Some people have always known what they wanted to be when they grew up, and some of us are still figuring it out.

Living your passion is not passive though – it’s active. The key is knowing what brings you a bit of sparkle and going and getting more of it. Your purpose in life might look like different things throughout your lifetime, but it can all count.

This week, maybe set the intention to Map Your Calling. As Dave Isay explains in this article “Your calling is at the intersection of a Venn diagram of three things: doing something you’re good at, feeling appreciated, and believing your work is making people’s lives better.”

He explains that this can be uncomfortable (you might remember last week, I said you might need to Be A Disrupter), and that “taking a stand against a status quo that simply isn’t acceptable, and then dedicating your work to changing it, is work ignited by hope, love, or defiance — and stoked by purpose and persistence.”

It’s also important to appreciate yourself, and sometimes you’ll need to be your own cheerleader. And if you don’t know where you’re going yet, maybe just think about why you stay where you are.
